“When you, a family member or a friend is facing the loss of FREEDOM, panic ensues.
Do you want a lawyer who writes a will on Monday, represents a plaintiff in a car accident case on Tuesday, appears at an immigration hearing on Wednesday, represents a client for a speeding ticket on Thursday, to represent you on Friday?”
These are extremely delicate and complex cases that require a experienced lawyer and law firm who truly knows the depth of the despair you are facing.
While recognizing certain economic realities, Broden & Mickelsen also believes that the quality of one’s defense should not be based solely upon a person’s financial position. Given this belief, the firm will often undertake representation of individuals for substantially reduced fees in order to prevent a miscarriage of justice or because of the important issues involved in the case.
At Broden & Mickelsen, we can only help you if you make the brave decision to CALL!
We will give you our undivided attention and deliver experienced, knowledgeable, and trustworthy advice as we guide you through these treacherous and scary times.
We also believe that it is our duty, as attorneys, to take a limited number of court appointments. Consequently, we are periodically requested by courts to represent, on appeal, individuals sentenced to death. Each partner has significant trial experience and a wealth of appellate experience.
If you are charged with a DWI you need to hire a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Within 15 days of the arrest your defense lawyer needs to request an administrative license revocation hearing on your behalf. Many DWI cases result in a jury trial and you need a skilled advocate to challenge the police officer’s opinion that you were intoxicated, and in cases involving blood or alcohol tests, an advocate with the skill to challenge the reliability of that test.
Drug Possession and Trafficking:
If you are charged with a drug crime you need a advocate that will make sure the government did not violate your constitutional rights to be free from unreasonable searches or seizures. Likewise, a good lawyer will explore all other possible defenses, for far too often lawyers immediately advise their clients to plead guilty and cooperate with authorities in drug cases.
If you are charged with a Federal crime, you need a criminal defense lawyer experienced in Federal court. Federal criminal cases are much more procedurally complex than State court cases, and most criminal defense lawyers have little Federal courtroom experience. Not only are Federal trials complex, Federal sentences are governed by guidelines that are often extremely harsh and require a skilled defense lawyer so that the client receives the least severe sentence possible.
Sex crimes are emotionally difficult cases with potentially severe consequences for the defendant. Perhaps more than any other kind of criminal charge these cases result in jury trials, due to the often “he said, she said” nature of the evidence. Both Clint Broden and Mick Mickelsen have tried numerous sexual assault cases to success. If you are charged with a sex crime you want the best advocate possible in your corner.
Child pornography cases are a unique kind of sex crime. These charges are usually based on digital evidence and raise numerous technical issues. At Broden & Mickelsen we have defended many of these cases with assistance of an information technology expert. In some cases, we also have been able to assist our clients get a reduced sentence by teaming with psychological experts.
Appeals and Writs of Habeas Corpus:
Most criminal defense lawyers consider themselves to be trial lawyers but have relatively little experience handling appeals and petitions for a writ of habeas corpus. Clint Broden and Mick Mickelsen are board certified in both criminal trials and appeals. Although once a defendant has been convicted by a judge or jury, the task of winning freedom is challenging, our record of success on appeal is second to none.
If you have been charged with robbery, murder, aggravated assault or any other violent crime, the consequences are often severe. You need an experienced advocate that will challenge the State every step of the way. Mick Mickelsen and Clint Broden have successfully defended clients at trial who were charged with the most serious violent crimes.
Most white-collar crimes involve allegations of fraud or deceit. In many cases, they involve massive amounts of documentary evidence and complicated legal and factual issues. Clint Broden and Mick Mickelsen have been successfully defending white-collar cases for over twenty-five years in both federal and state courts.
