Allen P. Eskens

Mankato Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney - Allen P. EskensI am a criminal defense attorney with over 20 years of experience protecting the rights of the accused. I am the senior partner of the firm and I handle cases in Mankato and throughout southern Minnesota.

Nearly 100% of my time is spent as a criminal defense attorney, which allows me to remain a cutting-edge lawyer and to focus on the special issues affecting those charged with a crime. I am a former prosecuting attorney. I have the inside perspective on the tactics, strategies, and issues a defendant will face. I know how to handle and work with and against police, prosecutors, and judges; I understand the particular attitudes of those who are trying to convict you.

With extensive experience in handling every level and type of criminal charge, from careless driving and DWI to first degree murder, burglary, theft and assault, I am able to anticipate the unexpected. I am a member of the Minnesota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Minnesota State Bar Association Criminal Law Section. I received my Juris Doctorate from Hamline University School of Law, where I served on the Hamline Law Review, the Hamline Journal of Law and Public Policy, Jessup International Moot Court. I received national and international honors for my legal writing. I also served a one-year term in the prestigious Warren E. Burger Inn of Court.
