When people say that “crime doesn’t pay,” they’re not exactly being truthful. While it is true that crime won’t end well for anyone involved, it can end in expenses for both the perpetrator and the victim.
Courts in Minnesota often
Finding a good lawyer is hard work. You want someone with experience. Someone willing to give your case the attention it deserves. An attorney who understands not just Minnesota law, but also local police, judges, and other lawyers. Who has been recognized as one of the top in their respective field. Who gets results.
Of course, the last thing that most people want to do when facing a legal matter is research lawyers. Your focus needs to be on fighting for your rights. Your future. Your family.
So why would you ever make yourself go through the process more than once?
Unfortunately, that is exactly what many people have to do over the course of their lives. If you are dealing with an injury caused by another’s negligence, you need a personal injury attorney. If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges, it requires a defense lawyer. Divorce or other family matter? You need a family lawyer.
These are specific skill sets. The vast majority of attorneys only handle one of them. So do most law firms in Duluth.
That is just one of many things that sets LaCourse, Poole & Envall, P.A. apart. Our lawyers come from a variety of legal backgrounds because our goal is not to help you deal with a particular matter. We want to be there over the course of your life for whatever legal issues arise. We want to be the law firm you call no matter what you are up against.
The fact that our lawyers specialize in a variety of legal areas is convenient, but it is not the reason our clients choose us. Even a group of recent law school grads who want to focus on different areas of the law could potentially join together to offer that to their clients.
LaCourse, Poole & Envall is different because of who our attorneys are and what they have done over the course of their careers. These are professionals who have stellar Avvo ratings. Who are Lead Counsel rated. Who have been named Rising Stars. Who are listed in the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by The National Trial Lawyers and have been designated Super Lawyers by Minnesota Law and Politics magazine. Lawyers who not only say they can get results, but have the track record to back it up.

Getting hurt because someone else made a mistake is already a huge price to pay. You have to go through the pain and suffering. You have to struggle to recover. You have to miss out on your regular life until you can hopefully return to normal.
Having to literally pay for that injury is like a slap in the face, especially when you consider the fact that medical bills, lost wages, and other costs can add up incredibly fast. Russ LaCourse and Ron Envall know how to help you fight back and get the compensation you need and deserve in a wide variety of areas, including:
Our state takes criminal charges seriously, and you can bet that law enforcement officers and prosecutors will do everything they can to convict you. Depending on the nature of the crime you have been charged with, this could mean years in jail, high fines, lost rights, and more.
Never mistake a charge for a conviction though. Until a guilty verdict has been rendered, you are considered innocent. A skilled Duluth criminal attorney can fight to reduce the consequences you face – and possibly help you beat your charges altogether.
Andrew Poole has experience handling all kinds of Minnesota criminal charges, including:
A legal issue with a stranger can be awkward and stressful, but if the person you are battling against is a spouse, an ex, a roommate, or someone else close to you, stress does not even begin to describe what you are feeling.
When dealing with an emotional situation like this, you need someone on your side who can listen with compassion, but also handle the matter with professionalism and reason. In his years of practicing law, Andrew Poole has dealt with a number of family law cases, including:
