Our firm was founded on a single principle that is often sought by lawyers and law firms but seldom accomplished; it is embodied in the latin phrase 'Audere est facere.' Simply, it means "to dare is to do." This singular guiding principle expresses the concept that it is the willingness to take risks, to face adversity, to look at defeat but to still dare to do what is necessary to accomplish the goal in any particular case. Our firm is a law firm familiar with the tasks of taking big government and big corporations to the courtroom to achieve results for our clients.

Criminal Defense / Your Freedom

With a collection of investigative and prosecutorial experience, Chris Redmann Law, P.L.L.C. was formed to offer services to the firm's clients primarily in the area of criminal defense and employment law. After years in government service, Chris came to the private sector with a keen understanding and perspective that only a law enforcement and prosecutorial background can allow.
Chris grew up in northeastern Wisconsin and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from
the University of Wisconsin - Steven's Point. He later received his juris doctorate at the University of North Dakota
- School of Law. After Chris completed his legal education, with an interest in criminal investigations, he worked
for the Fargo Police Department. He investigated and responded to thousands of calls ranging from DUI and
drug offenses to domestic violence and homicide. He obtained advanced training in DUI interdiction,
standardized field sobriety tests (SFSTs), Domestic Violence investigation, and completed both investigations
and narcotics agent school. Chris left the Fargo Police Department to work as a prosecutor with the Burleigh
County State's Attorney's Office in Bismarck, ND. Chris prosecuted hundreds of cases ranging from minor
misdemeanor assaults to complex AA felony methamphetamine conspiracy. He attended advanced training in
the prosecution of drug offenders and maintained a strong conviction rate in the office. Chris ultimately left
government service and a larger law firm to represent clients from all walks of life and in the full scope of state
and federal criminal and employment cases. His experience in both state and federal investigations is an
incredible asset to his clients as he knows how the criminal investigation, charging, plea negotiation, and trial
phases work and the many ways an attorney can advocate his client's best interests.
In the scope of his defense work, Chris has represented clients involved in large federal drug conspiracies with
life in a federal prison on the line to the very intricate and nuanced representation that comes with a DUI charge.
In addition to representing those accused of drug and alcohol offenses, he has also represented those accused
of gross sexual imposition, luring a minor, theft, and assaults.
In the scope of his employment law work, he has represented many clients against big corporations and big
government to achieve just results for gender discrimination, sexual harassment, hostile work environment, and
wrongful termination claims. He proudly represents employees who fight "the man."
Every case begins with a thorough client interview and consultation during which case goals, expectations, and
rapport is established. The next step is the investigation stage as the best defense is a great offense. Every
possible document, video, note, report, and recording is reviewed to look for possible defenses and prosecutorial
weaknesses. Furthermore, the firm utilizes a number of experienced experts to assist in creation of a defense
theory; these experts range from private investigators, to psychologists, to polygraph experts. It is during
this stage that a more formal strategy is developed. In many cases the next phase involves “motions” to the
Court to suppress, for example, illegally obtained evidence or statements made in violation of a client’s Miranda
rights. Some motions may be reserved for right before trial for tactical advantage while others are filed early.
Often winning an important motion will prevent the prosecutor from utilizing a critical piece of evidence and
result in either a dismissal or substantial reduction in the charge.
Next is the negotiation stage with the prosecutor's office. The negotiation stage often will disclose the
prosecutor's strategies and thoughts on the case. Typically, prosecutors will relay several plea offers to settle
the case; it is at that point that additional client consultation and case valuation is discussed to determine if the
best result is a plea agreement or trial.
A case proceeding to trial is tenaciously prepped. Witnesses are subpoenaed and prepared to testify,
cross examination of the prosecutor's witnesses is developed, and jury presentation arguments are crafted.
Trial is truly the culmination of months of hard work and attention to detail as it all comes down to that final
moment, after all the witnesses have testified, after all the evidence is in, and after the breaths of silence which
precede each and every jury verdict. Guilty or Not Guilty. That is where a trial attorney earns his keep.
