Attorney Profile

Brock Hunter is an experienced criminal defense lawyer serving clients across Minnesota. In practice for 20 years, Brock has handled thousands of cases, representing clients charged with everything from DWI and traffic offenses to serious drug felonies, complex theft crimes, and homicides.  Brock served as President of the Minnesota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (MACDL) in 2011 and, from 2005 - 2010, as Legislative Chair, led the organization's efforts for criminal justice reform at the Minnesota Legislature. Brock has received recognition from his peers, receiving a Special Acheivement Award from the MACDL in 2009, and the Minnesota State Bar Association's (MSBA's) Award of Professional Excellence, the organization's highest honor, in 2011.

As a veteran who served as a recon scout in the U.S. Army, Brock also devotes a significant portion of his practice to representing psychologically injured Iraq and Afghan war veterans who find themselves in the criminal justice system.  In 2008, Brock drafted and led passage of pioneering legislation that encourages treatment over incarceration of veterans whose psychological injuries played a role in their criminal offense, and was later cited by the U.S. Supreme Court in the landmark decision of Porter v. McCollum. Brock regularly speaks across the country on the issue of combat veterans in the criminal courts, educating legal professionals, lawmakers and military members on how our nation can avoid mistakes made with past generations of veterans and do a better job this time around.
