About Andrew C. Wilson

Minneapolis defense attorney Andrew C. Wilson won his first jury trial before graduating from law school. After his first year of practice, his name was cemented in Minnesota Supreme Court case law, and within five he’d been to the Eighth Circuit Federal Court of Appeals, won jury trials, won bench trials, won appeals, and had significant victories throughout Minnesota at the district courts. Wilson has dedicated his career to practicing criminal defense law and representing individuals accused to have committed crimes. A natural litigator, a Northfield native, and an advocate for the underdog, Wilson takes pride in providing expert-level representation without exception. He understands the stress and uncertainty associated with a criminal charge and appreciates the pressure that criminal defendants face. He makes it a priority to alleviate as much of that stress and anxiety as he can, through clear action plans and solid defenses. He also understands that working with attorneys can be intimidating and expensive. He works with his clients—routinely—to arrange billing schedules that fit their needs, and provides free consultations on almost any issue.
