When you are charged with a crime, your world can seem to fall apart. Suddenly, you are no longer in control of your life. A confusing court process will determine your future. Whether you are facing your first criminal charge or have been arrested multiple times in the past, you can rely on me for effective legal representation and an aggressive defense.
During my college years, I began learning about the law as an intern for the Stevens County Attorney’s office. While in law school, I spent several years with the Washington County Public Defender’s office. I represented hundreds of clients in bail hearings, arraignments and pretrial hearings. In addition, I worked with the Edina city attorney, prosecuting misdemeanors and gross misdemeanors. My experience prosecuting cases has been invaluable to my work as a criminal defense lawyer.
After earning my Juris Doctor degree, I founded Schiks Law Office, P.A., where I focused on DWI representation and criminal defense. I have successfully represented countless clients in felony and misdemeanor cases, achieving dismissals and resolutions resulting in no conviction. Later, as managing partner of Mohammad, Schiks & Jaafar, P.A., I practiced personal injury law as well as criminal defense.
Today I am a proud member of member of the Washington County Criminal Defense Panel and the Washington County Criminal Defense Clinic.
