Burnsville Criminal Defense Attorney

My name is Howard Bass. At the Bass Law Firm, PLLC, I defend Minnesota residents who have been accused of crimes ranging from minor petty misdemeanors to serious federal offenses. Backed by more than 25 years of trial and appellate experience, I am ready to help you face charges in state or federal court.

Guiding You Through Criminal and Civil Liberties Cases

If you have been accused of a crime — any crime — you may feel scared, confused and overwhelmed by the criminal justice system. You need an attorney who will not only listen to your side of the story, but also work directly with you, explain your options and vigorously fight for your constitutional rights.

I will provide legal guidance at every stage of your case — whether you are under investigation, have been charged with a crime, are headed to trial, are preparing an appeal or are seeking post-conviction relief.

At the Bass Law Firm, I aggressively defend my clients' constitutional rights.

In addition to my criminal defense work, I am also a passionate defender of civil liberties. As a member of the ACLU of Minnesota, I have extensive experience defending the rights of Minnesota citizens. I am prepared to assist with a full range of civil rights issues, including free speech, due process of law, separation of church and state, and improper search and seizure.

Recognized Skill

I have received recognition for my work in a number of Minnesota publications. I have routinely been selected for inclusion on Minnesota's Super Lawyers list, including a selection as a "Top 40 Criminal Defense Super Lawyer." Minnesota Monthly has also named me one of the "Best Criminal Defense Lawyers in Minnesota." In addition, I have been chosen by my peers for inclusion in "The Best Lawyers in America."

Being charged with a crime can be a traumatic experience. To the greatest extent possible, I ask my clients to leave with me whatever concerns, anxieties and worries they may have about their situation and let me deal with it for them while they deal with the rest of their lives.
