Attorney Profile

The founder of her own firm located in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, Page H. Narins focuses her practice exclusively on criminal defense matters. She provides forceful, yet compassionate representation to people throughout the greater Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area who have been charged by the state with the commission of misdemeanor or felony offenses. Admitted to practice before all Minnesota state courts, Ms. Narins has received a "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo, which is evidence of the high regard in which she is held by her colleagues.

The types of cases that Ms. Narins has handled have included driving while intoxicated, drug possession and distribution, white collar crimes, theft, assault, and domestic violence, and she has been able to obtain positive results for her clients in many instances, through bench or jury acquittals as well as pursuant to the negotiation of favorable plea bargain agreements with the prosecution. In one DWI case, she was able to get her client's charges dismissed after successfully challenging the initial traffic stop as being made without the requisite reasonable suspicion that a crime had been committed. In another case in which her commercial truck driver client had been charged with speeding and faced the loss of his CDL, Ms. Narins obtained an acquittal due to the false testimony of the arresting police officer.

Ms. Narins attended the University of St. Thomas, majoring in communication studies and receiving a Bachelor of Arts in 2003. Her legal education was obtained at what was then known as William Mitchell College of Law, and she was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2008. A strong believer in helping others who are less fortunate, Ms. Narins has provided indigent people with pro bono legal services through the Misdemeanor Defense Project that is sponsored by the Hennepin County Bar Association.
