If you want a top tier lawyer, call Jeff Dean.
“I am a Criminal Law Professor at the University of Minnesota and have taught Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure since 1971. I’ve also written Criminal Law, (12th edition 2017), and Criminal Procedure (10th edition, 2018). I’ve known criminal defense attorney Jeff Dean since he was my student in 1989. No student worked harder, determined to do his best. I was convinced that if I ever needed legal advice, I’d turn to Jeff Dean. And, if I ever had to go to court, I’d want Jeff Dean by my side.
Whenever my students ask me to refer them to an attorney, I tell them to call Jeff Dean. When I see Jeff on the TV news or read a story in the print media about another high-profile case he has won, I’m proud to tell anyone in sight—Hey! I know him. So, if you want a top tier lawyer, call Jeff Dean.”

The Outcome Could Not Have Been Better!
I would highly recommend Jeff Dean to anybody charged with 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.

I highly recommend Jeff to anybody!
“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. I highly recommend Jeff to anybody charged with a crime anywhere in Minnesota.”

I Was Acquitted because of Jeff!
“I was charged with murder and Jeff Dean won not guilty verdicts on all counts. The evidence against me appeared insurmountable. The police said that I confessed the crime to them. My fingerprints were on the gun. I was found at the crime scene. Jeff proved that it was the state’s witness who fired the gun and I was acquitted.”
– D.R. Former Client
Jeff is well-known and highly regarded in the local legal community.
“I have known Jeff Dean both professionally and personally for 12 years. I am a lawyer myself, so I have become aware of his abilities and reputation by direct observation. He is a skilled lawyer, hard-working and dedicated to representing his clients.
I have referred a number of clients to him, and in every instance, I have received back reports of complete satisfaction. Referrals who were unfamiliar with the court system reported that Jeff clearly communicated with them as to the process and the options they faced, giving them both comfort and a feeling that they were in control. In every case, the report back was that they would go back to Jeff again, should that ever become necessary.
Jeff is well-known and highly regarded in the local legal community. That strength makes him even more effective as he advocates on behalf of clients.
I would not hesitate to recommend Jeff to a family member or close friend.”
– Tom Blackmar, Attorney
Jury Agreed With Mr. Dean and Found Me Not Guilty
“Justice has been done! I was charged with indecent exposure at Crosby Park after an undercover police officer in a sex sting operation said that I sexually touched him. Jeff Dean argued at trial that the police action of pretending to be sexually interested in me was entrapment. Mr. Dean said further that the officer invited my touch, and that a consensual touch, unseen by others, cannot be a crime. The jury agreed with Mr. Dean on all points and found me not guilty! ”
– R.O. Former Client
Charge Was Dismissed by Judge!

He has 25 years of experience practicing exclusively DWI and criminal defense and his outstanding track record speaks for itself.”

Jeff Got Charges Dismissed And Problems and Worries are Gone!
“I had just finished school and was about to apply for my professional license when I was charged with theft. My license could have been denied if I was found guilty.
