My name is John Moore. As the long-time owner of a large nightclub in downtown Minneapolis, the Saloon, I am frequently approached by customers who have been charged with a DWI or other offense and are looking for a good defense attorney. I always refer them to criminal defense attorney Jeff Dean. I have known Jeff Dean since he first became an attorney in 1995. I have followed his high-profile wins in the media and have seen him interviewed on the television news many times over the years. I am very involved in Minneapolis and St. Paul communities, having sat on boards of charitable organizations, worked in support of political candidates, and as a nightclub owner. As such, I know when people talk, and the talk about Jeff Dean is that he is an excellent lawyer, respected by the judges and prosecutors, cares about his clients, and wins cases. Jeff has a great reputation, is honest and nice, and fights hard for the accused. I have referred people accused of DWI, drug crimes, and sex offenses to Jeff Dean for over 20 years.

The Outcome Could Not Have Been Better!
I would highly recommend Jeff Dean to anybody charged with a Minneapolis DWI. After the prosecutor refused to drop the charges Jeff took my DWI case to a jury trial and won not guilty verdicts on all counts. The outcome could not have been better. I have since referred my close friends to Jeff, and will continue to do so.
