Dave Ayers has over 40 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer with a successful trial record in a wide range of cases – from misdemeanors to murders – in both Minnesota and Wisconsin. He is experienced in high-profile cases, often involving professionals. For over 15 years, as a lawyer for MPPOA, Dave represented officers facing critical incidents and criminal charges. Dave is one of only eight lawyers in Minnesota to be named in three categories of the Minnesota Judges’ Choice Awards, including: Wins the Most Cases and Most Prepared. Since 1998, and again this year, Dave has been selected as one of Minnesota’s Super Lawyers.  Dave was also selected for inclusion in both ATLA’s Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Minnesota and in all 3 catergories - Criminal Defense: General; Criminal Defense: White Collar; Criminal Defense: DWI - by   The Best Lawyers in America, where he was Lawyer of the Year in 2016 and again in 2021. Dave has a reputation for focusing on details and meeting the personal needs of each client. These qualities, coupled with his proven success in the courtroom, generate referrals from previous clients, police officers, lawyers, and judges. Although a former Golden Gloves boxer, Dave now restricts his battles to the courtroom.
