Mankato Criminal Defense Attorneys at the Calvin P. Johnson Law Firm, LLC, help the individual to complete all necessary components of effective rehabilitation within the criminal justice system, especially focusing on issues of chemical dependency, mental illness, and trauma.

Frequently, a criminal charge is an indication of other factors that are effecting a person’s life. Successful and effective representation requires a multifaceted, comprehensive evaulation of the individual, and the circumstances surrounding that individual's experience.

Below is a list of legal, government, mental health, and other importance resources for your review and convenience.

We also provide effective assistance with driver's license reinstatement.  The loss of a driver's license can have severe consequences for many people, especially when your livelihood depends on your ability to drive.  Minnesota driver's license law is complex and difficult to navigate. Oftentimes, a driver's license revocation is a collateral (or secondary) consequence to a criminal conviction that many people are not aware of until its too late. Our team has extensive experience in Minnesota driver's license law.  If you are facing the loss of a driver's license, do not wait. Call us to talk to an expert today.

We provide helpful resources in the areas of chemical dependency, trauma, childhood trauma, involuntary intoxication, and police brutality. We provide neurofeedback services to help cope with the stress of your case, witness preparation, and for PTS (Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome).
