Minnesota Courthouse Contacts

Our criminal defense law office handles cases across the entire State of Minnesota.  And our clients live all over the State.  For these reasons, we created the following list.  It alphabetizes the counties in Minnesota.  Our court system is organized by counties; if you are accused of committing a crime in Minneapolis, you will go to the Hennepin County Courthouse.

The counties, then, are organized by districts.  In some counties, especially smaller ones, judges and prosecutors rotate throughout neighboring counties within the same district.

Court cases all have an identifying number.  In Hennepin County, a court case opened in 2013 will have the number 27-CR-13-XXXX.  The first two numbers refer to the county, which are numbered alphabetically.  The “CR” means the case is a criminal case.  A civil case usually has a “CV” in place of the “CR.”  The next two numbers are the year: “13” for 2013, “12” for 2012, etc.  The remaining numbers (in places of the Xs above) are unique to your case.  When you call our office, we will often ask you if you have a case number.  This is the number that we are talking about.  It allows us to pull up your electronic case file and see what’s going on.

We included the address and contact numbers for convenience.  We call and fax these courthouses a lot to schedule or re-schedule court dates, get documents, send documents to judges and prosecutors, and tell the courts that we represent you.

Finally, we included the distance from downtown Minneapolis (where our office is located) to the courthouse and how long it takes to drive there.  This helps us figure out where your court hearings will be and how long we need to allocate to driving there.  It also helps us tell you how far our office is from where you leave.  When possible, we like to have you come to our office and meet with us.  This list tells us where you are coming from and how long it will take.
