About Anderson Defense

When you need an attorney, you want to hire someone you trust, feel comfortable talking with and someone who will make you a priority.


I am Eric Anderson, founder of Anderson Defense in Minneapolis. Whether you’re facing MN criminal charges, have had your child removed from your home for allegations of abuse or neglect or are a licensed professional and are at risk of losing your license for professional misconduct, I can provide you with the representation you need to protect what’s most important.

With experience as a public defender and in the private sector, I have handled numerous cases, worked with individuals and families facing a broad range of legal issues and know firsthand the importance and value of helping people find realistic, timely and practical solutions to their legal issues.

I understand that you have options when hiring a lawyer. However, I am confident that when we sit down together during a free consultation, you will discover that my commitment and dedication to your case set my practice apart.

Below are some other benefits you can expect when you work with me:

  • When you call, I answer: As a sole practitioner, one of my top priorities is making myself available to my clients. When you have a question, I want you to call me. When going to court, I’ll be the attorney by your side. Essentially, when you hire me, I’ll be here, ready to help.
  • I only offer honest counsel: If you have a case, I want to help you. However, I won’t build false hopes or offer empty promises. When we work together, I’ll be honest and straightforward regarding your options and potential outcomes. I want my clients to feel that they can be honest with me because they know I am always being honest with them.
  • I don’t judge people — I help people: As an attorney, it’s not my job to judge people. Instead, I try to help real people solve real legal problems. When we work together, I want to take away some of the stress and pressure you’re experiencing. Ultimately, I work for you and want to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
