Buffalo MN Criminal Defense Lawyer

Defend Your Reputation – Turn to Keyser Law for Buffalo Charges


Criminal Defense Lawyer Minneapolis

The Wright County seat is home to a small-town atmosphere that can only come from a city with fewer than 20,000 people.


Buffalo is a medium-sized community that prides itself on supporting a surprisingly robust artistic community, including both a local community theater and a community orchestra. Beyond this, Wright County is home to the Wright County Chamber Chorus and the Wright Ringers. All of these organizations require – and enjoy – quite a bit of community involvement.


Why is this important? Because in a place like Buffalo, your actions are magnified. Your neighbors notice what you do.


This is particularly true for those who find themselves on the wrong side of the law. If police cars show up at your house or officers take you away in handcuffs, your good name can be demolished in a matter of moments. Ironically, this problem is even worse because of the fact that, generally speaking, Buffalo is such a safe place to live.


According to Neighborhood Scout, violent crimes here are about half of what you can expect in Minnesota as a whole – and less than a third of the national median. The property crime rate falls well below the state and national numbers as well. AreaVibes gives the city an “A” rating for crime.


With fewer crimes overall, though, it means that those who are arrested and charged stand out even more. On top of this, local law enforcement officials want to do everything in their power to protect the area’s “safe” image and deter crimes, so it is likely that they will attempt to punish you as severely as possible for your alleged transgressions.


As a local criminal defense lawyer, Christopher Keyser has earned a reputation for fighting hard for his clients and thinking outside the box to come up with legal strategies that ensure their rights are protected. Keyser has helped countless people in and around Wright County to get state and federal charges reduced or dropped, and he can help you, too.


The Military Lawyer that Buffalo Servicemembers Choose to Represent Them


When our servicemen and women find themselves accused or charged with a crime, it is not the same as when a civilian gets into this kind of trouble. Those in the military are up against enhanced consequences that may include losing their right to bear arms and even being forced out of the military if they are convicted.


If you are a servicemember facing charges, or if someone you love in the military has been accused of a crime, you need a lawyer who understands the special circumstances present in your case. Captain Christopher Keyser is that lawyer. As a U.S. Army Reserves Judge Advocate (JAG), Captain Keyser has a track record of success in representing National Guard and Reserve servicemembers, and he is not afraid to take on the hardest, most serious cases.


Not only does he possess an unparalleled understanding of military, federal, and Minnesota law, he also knows the local players around Wright County and in Buffalo and who to turn to work out the best deal for you. Moreover, he will not back down in protecting your rights and making sure that you are provided with the strongest possible defense.


Christopher Keyser Can Help You with All Kinds of Buffalo Criminal Charges


There are no “good” crimes to be charged with. Any type of charge or arrest can negatively impact your future in a serious way. No matter what you are up against, getting in touch with Mr. Keyser as soon as possible is of the utmost importance.


That being said, there are a couple of “problem” crimes in Buffalo. Due to the fact that crime in the area is so low overall, these acts tend to stand out even more, and area law officers are constantly trying to crack down on them.


What are they? Theft and rape.


These two types of crimes either approach or exceed state and national averages. In the case of rape, Buffalo is almost double the national rate and about 20 points higher than the state average. If you have been accused of either of these crimes, do not hesitate to reach out.


Other charges that Mr. Keyser can help you defend against include:




Burglary and Residential Burglary

Detox & Jail Release

Disorderly Conduct

Domestic Violence

Drug Crimes



Federal Crimes




Juvenile Crimes


Military Law

Probation Violations



Simple Robbery


Weapons Charges

White Collar Crimes


No matter the charges, the sooner you get an experienced representative on your side, the better. Police officers and prosecutors love meeting with people who do not yet have a lawyer. It is far easier to get them to say something damaging to their case or to agree to a bad plea deal.


Moreover, evidence tends to be very time-sensitive. Not only because it may take quite a while to fully investigate, collect evidence, and locate witnesses, but because if some types of evidence are not gathered in a timely manner, they can be lost.


Simply put, your chances of a positive outcome increase the earlier you choose an attorney to start crafting your defense.


Why Minnesota Criminal Lawyer Christopher Keyser Is the Right Person to Handle Your Charge in Buffalo


One of the reasons that Mr. Keyser has been able to enjoy such fantastic success is his ability to think outside the box mentioned above. In part, he attributes this ability to his background.


Not only does he have Judge Advocate experience from the military, he clerked both for the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Those positions required him to prosecute federal cases for the U.S. government. In other words, his job was to prove that people were guilty of crimes and secure convictions – the polar opposite of what he does now.


Because of these experiences, he was able to learn how prosecutors and law enforcement agencies think and work as well as the strategies they tend to use against defendants. This is knowledge that he uses every single day as a defense attorney to help him plan for their tactics and poke holes in their arguments.


The breadth and depth of his legal knowledge have also made him the go-to person when media outlets need want someone to speak about particular issues in criminal law. He has been featured in:


ABC5 Eyewitness News


Pioneer Press

Savage Pacer


Stillwater Gazette

Stillwater Patch

The Citizen



Additionally, his legal successes have caused him to receive recognition from around the legal community. Just a few of his awards and honors include being named a Minnesota Super Lawyers Rising Star (2014 – 2016), a Top 100 Trial Lawyer for National Trial Lawyers (2013 – 2016), and a Top 40 Under 40 Attorney for National Trial Lawyers (2013 – 2016) and receiving a 10/10 Rating and Clients’ Choice Awards on Avvo for Criminal Defense, DUI, Domestic Violence, Violent Crime, and Federal Crimes (2013-2016).
