When facing serious criminal charges, there is no substitute for a legal advocate who is responsive, innovative and won’t back down from a fight. Attorneys Andrew C. Wilson and Charles S. Clas, Jr. founded their boutique criminal defense firm with a vision of providing smart, aggressive advocacy against an array of criminal allegations. In just two years, they have produced phenomenal results, successfully defending their clients. With a focus on criminal defense, Title IX defense and appellate litigation, the firm delivers bespoke solutions to the most serious criminal issues.
Wilson is a Minnesota native who awakened to his legal calling in middle school. “I never wanted to sue for money or fight over custody or property in a divorce,” he says. “I always liked the idea of fighting for the underdog, people with less resources who are up against the government.”
After serving as an Americorps volunteer, Wilson went on to William Mitchell College of Law, where he won his first jury trial prior to graduating magna cum laude. He made his mark before the Minnesota Supreme Court during his first year of practice and has continued a robust appellate practice with repeated appearances at the Minnesota Supreme Court, the Minnesota Court of Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.
