Tireless Effort.

Unparalleled Results.

Preeminent Criminal Defense.

Since 1980, Bruno Law has provided preeminent criminal defense to those under investigation or prosecution for state and federal offenses. Through tireless effort, Bruno Law is committed to an ongoing history of unparalleled client results. This means presenting an aggressive and strategic defense to any type of criminal charges and persuasive and thoughtful representation before the Minnesota and federal appellate courts. The results speak for themselves. Our attorneys have earned recognition throughout Minnesota and the United States.

Bruno Law has defended public officials, celebrities, corporate executives, and the common man. We are honored and proud to receive referrals from many prosecutors, police officers, former clients, and attorneys with whom we work. It is a testimony to the firm’s reputation and skills that Bruno Law’s clientele are almost exclusively referral-based.

In 2018, Bruno Law became a family business. Fred Bruno, the firm’s founder and principal, merged Bruno Law with the Law Offices of Carolyn Agin Bruno, pairing two of Minnesota’s best attorneys within the same firm. Samantha Foertsch, Carolyn’s daughter, was already an integral part of the Bruno Law team, as the firm’s primary researcher and writer. Then, in late 2017, Bruno Law added Samantha’s husband, Stephen, who had quickly become a rising name in criminal defense. The firm now includes two husband/wife teams, and a mother/daughter duo for good measure. True to his Italian roots, Bruno calls the firm, “La Famiglia.” Let our family defend yours like they’re our own.

Bruno Law serves Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, and all federal jurisdictions.
