Hillary was a big help! I got a letter from the county on a Friday saying that a 20-year-old charge that had never caused me problems in obtaining 3 other PTCs in 3 states, all of a sudden disqualify me from having a PTC per the federal lifetime ban. So I found Hillary online and watched a video of hers on this specific subject. Put in a call to her law office, and she took the time out of her personal life and called me back that Sunday! After a few back-and-forth communications with Hillary and I. She submitted an appeal explaining why their findings were incorrect and not consistent with the law. A month or so later the county reversed their decision to void my PTC and re-issued it back to me with no further issues. I am absolutely sure that I would have not gotten the same outcome if Hillary hadn’t intervened on my behalf. I would suggest her and her law firm for anyone that’s going through any issues with their PTC. She will ensure that you have the best legal advice and help on your side. Thanks a lot Hillary!

I will recommend Hillary Parsons and her firm 100%. With a case that was over a year long, I felt that I was always communicated with and informed. Hillary, herself, stood by my side and fought for the truth! She is the only reason I have another chance at life because she fought tooth and nail for me! I owe her my life. And God forbid I ever need a lawyer again, there is only one person I will ever call. Thank you Hillary.

Someone close to me worked with Joe T. on a case and couldn’t be more pleased. Joe was professional, precise, and well respected in the court room. He came with a lot of hard to find facts that turned the case in their favor resulting in a full dismissal prior to trial. A+, will recommend every chance I get.

I had three of the same charges within 90 days of each other and was facing serious Jail time. I would've most definitely gone to jail if it wasn't for Ms. Hillary Parsons!

I first met Hillary when I was detained in county and right from the get go she made me feel at ease! Her compassionate,kindness,understanding, and forgiving qualities are bar none the best I've ever seen in an attorney, and I come from a family of them!

The court presence and respect that Hillary has is what makes every penny spent on this firm worth it! In the end she gave such a powerful final statement that it literally left the Judge speechless! The final result to my case was incredible and life changing!

If you ever retain this firm make sure to ask for their ACE, Hillary Parsons!

Had to pass through series of problems that could potentially screw up my criminal record, yield to termination of my international student status and bring a variety of other unpleasant consequences. Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm resolved all these problems for me quickly and efficiently. In particular, I would recommend Hillary not only because her work played a major role in taking me out of the problems, but also because she is a very interpersonal and inspiring individual. Without her thorough explanations and moral support, the process of dealing with legal issues would be much more nervous for me.

I wish there we more stars to give Hillary!! She deserves more than a corner office. She has represented me multiple times over the past couple of years and the results have always been amazing. They better change the name of the firm to Caplan, Tamburino, & Parsons Law Firm if they know what good for them!! Thanks again Hillary!

Our family struggled with an unusual case and Hilary was recommended to us. We found her warm and smart as a whip. She pulls no punches in court and carries herself professionally yet with warm understanding. She has been blessed with wisdom. Our case was dismissed. Our hearts will be forever grateful to this firm. Thank you Hillary!

I unconditionally recommend Hillary Parsons and Joe Tamburino of Caplan & Tamburino for representation.

My 2016 DWI was a nightmare. Because of a previous DWI involving a loss of life, Anoka County prosecutors charged me with First Degree DWI, a felony offense with a possible 7-year sentence and mandatory minimum 3-year sentence, if convicted.

Hillary Parsons visited me the night of my arrest, on a busy holiday weekend no less, and was able to secure bail for my release. She next introduced me to Joe Tamburino, who assured both my fiancée and me that he and Hillary would beat the felony DWI charge. Yes, Joe also said there existed a chance that Anoka County would prevail, but that chance was small he emphasized. "We know the law," Joe said at our first meeting, "and the law is on our side." Terrified, I could only focus on the seven-year sentence with a mandatory minimum 3-year incarceration term that would result were I convicted of a felony DWI.

Were it not for Hillary and Joe's tireless efforts, I would be serving seven years in prison. Incredibly, they convinced both the district court and, later, the appeals court to reduce my felony DWI charge to a gross misdemeanor. And against the stringent objections of the prosecutor, they were able to secure workhouse release and home electronic monitoring (a rarity in Anoka County) for me so I could maintain my employment and thus save my home from foreclosure. In short, because of Hillary and Joe's expertise and aggressive teamwork, and the considerable time they both dedicated to my DWI case, I am now at home with my family and not in prison.

Over the course of their representation, both my fiancée and I had unlimited access to Hillary and Joe via texts, phone calls, and office visits. They literally and figuratively held our hands as they navigated us through a very painful and fearful time.

Words fail to convey accurately the depth of gratitude my fiancée and I have for the second chance Hillary and Joe gave to our family in being able to move forward in our lives and ultimately putting this painful episode behind us, but we are forever grateful to Caplan & Tamburino, specifically to Hillary Parsons and Joe Tamburino.

Caplan & Tamburino law firm is among best in Twin Cities. They simply provide five star defense, and therefore the price. In case reputation is at stake and criminal charges are filed, why would anyone want a two star defense? Hillary Parsons took my call late on Saturday and then met me in person on Sunday. Joe Tambourino also took time away from his family to be at the meeting and to come my nerves. These guys work 24/7! I can write novels, but here are two reasons why I will refer all of my friends to them:

REPUTATION IN a COURTROOM - prosecutor is an attorney, judge is an attorney, and my defense is an attorney. It is critically important how my defense is regarded in this courtroom. I saw judge repeatedly asking defense attorneys, who were crowded outside of prosecutor's door to be quite, as they were loud and disrespectful! I also saw Hillary Parsons enter that court room. She was an ideal lawyer from "Law and Order", smart, beautiful and determined. She moved and spoke with grace, and was highly regarded, starting from a court clerk, and to a presiding judge. I did not even have to physically stand in front of a judge with a gross misdemeanor charge! Hillary did that for me. She got a hearing date and I was on my way to work.

WINNING CASES - this firm is determined to stay on the top, which means winning cases. They will tirelessly study every shred of evidence that the state may have, and apply their brilliant knowledge of the law and court proceedings to defend a client. The charge against me was dropped thanks to Hillary's investigation and hard work! There was not even a hearing!

Thank you Caplan & Tamburino! Dialing your number in a time of distress was a blessing!

Once again I had to ask for help from this distinguished company ))) Hillary was amazing! She is someone out of a movie or a university book... she got prosecuting attorney to fight for me... this is a hidden secret in Minnesota....She got me out of Jail by getting probation officer out here))) she is amazing... if it was not for her, I would be facing a year in jail... she got it down to two days of community service... she is awesome )))

My lawyer was Hillary Parsons from this firm. I was facing some serious charges and was an anxious mess. Upon our first conversation over the phone I immediately felt less anxious. Her warm and welcoming tone in combination with her well spoken manner put me at ease.
Their firm is easy to locate right in downtown Minneapolis. My first impression of the firm in general was modern, clean, and very welcoming. I was greeted by Peggy who is very friendly. She offered me a soda as I waited for Hillary. She didn't keep me waiting long at all. She was very professional and extremely knowledgeable. During out first meeting she took the time to get to know me as a person before getting into my charges which meant a lot to me. Being an open gay man it can be hard to feels safe with figures of authority. Hillary is extremely LGBTQ friendly, something I find important.
After taking my case Hillary worked extraordinarily hard on my behalf. She was VERY easy to reach and never left me waiting long for a reply to any question. She checked in periodically and genuinely wanted the best outcome for me. Her smile and well mannered humor was something that brought me peace of mind during court days,
My felony charge was dropped along with 2 other charges against me. Thanks to her diligence and intelligence I am able to continue my career as a RN. She fought for my license like it was her own. I will never forget that. I HIGHLY recommend this firm and Hillary Parsons as a lawyer. I don't know where my life would be without her. I can't thank her enough. If you're in need of legal help give yourself some peace of mind and hire Hillary.

Joe and his team were fantastic to work with and did an excellent job on my case. I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome. They helped me through an extremely hard situation in a way that made me feel confident and supported. Joe was extremely responsive to me even when I needed emergency advice late on a weekend night. If I had to do it all over again I would chose Joe as my attorney in a heartbeat and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for legal services.

I've worked with Hillary B. Parsons to defend me on 3 separate cases. There are so many reasons why I believe she is one of the best lawyers out there in Minnesota, by far.
I'd give here a 6 out of 5 stars if I could (at least). And this is why:

Overall, I literally could not be happier with the results (AKA end charges) I obtained for each of these 3, independent cases. Each case I attended court for, they all ended up resolved with such little consequence (vs. what 'I expected' could have certainly been faced with, without her [AKA a nightmare of a sentences]). She has incredible devotion to her clients and will work super hard to represent/help you the best she can both in court and outside of court. She is fantastic about answering questions/concerns, explaining what is happening, and just in general, super puts your mind at ease.

She's incredibly experienced and competent in what she practices.. she is phenomenal at getting a great resolution for her clients, no matter what the case. She knows county prosecutors throughout the state (and metro area) and has really good relationships with them (which means in the end, you're going to get a way better sentence deal for your case). She also is super helpful in terms of the best move to make given your charge situation.

Yes, it may be a bit more pricey than competing lawyers but trust me, it's worth investing your money and confidence in her!! I'd always go back to her if I were ever were charged with anything else.

We have worked with Hillary Parsons and our experience with her has been great. She is professional, knowledgeable, and focused. She is driven to do her best for us and has remained open-minded and pleasant to be around. The previous law firm that we worked with was interested in the easiest and quickest way to finish the job and wasn't interested in our expectations. After working with Hillary we learned what real legal representation should be.

My family and I are greatly satisfied with Hillary Parsons' representation of our son's case. Hillary is highly skilled, professional, and well experience in her field. She took her time to listen to us, educate us, and most importantly professionally comfort us. She always update us with new information about the case, and most importantly she is always available, reachable and approachable. I am strongly recommended to any body who needs a criminal lawyer representation to contact Hillary Parson.

This guy joe is a joke ,1st he has his “partners” answer my calls and he plays the whole “ oh I’m going out the office” game after I paid you in full. He guaranteed a 94+% chance that it would be over in no time because he knows the prosecutor real good and he just had “have a talk “ and get him to drop it or reduce it to nothing but a small fine. You sir are a joke you credentials are a hoax and I hope that the state bar that’s you from doing any business in the state of Minnesota pertaining to law. He is pretty rude and I believe racist against hispanics. Don’t use this guy unless you plan on getting a run around for nothing.

A little over a year ago my life took a complete 180 degree turn. Instead of graduating college and starting my career i was facing 2 major felonys with serious prison time that would have kept me from getting a job anywhere. After researching what kind of lawyers i needed to hire and calling around, I got into contact with Caplan & Tambrino and after my first phone call i knew this was a lawfirm that wanted to help me. Right away Mr. Tamburino told me this was going to be a long process but he was going to do whatever it took to get these felonys dropped. It was indeed a long process but he stuck to his word. My charges were dropped to misdominiors and no JAIL TIME! I am not only very thankful i made the decision to go with Caplan & Tamburino lawfirm but also very thankful for them as they have helped me get my life back to where i was headed a year ago.

I was arrested due to an illegal search done by law enforcement. This resulted in a possible felony charge. I'm a college graduate with a highly competitive job with a billion dollar brand. Additionally, I'm pursuing graduate studies. Needless to say, the possibility of a felony, would've ruined life as I now it, and prohibited me from pursuing many things I am working towards. I was referred to Joe Tamburino by another lawyer who is a family friend. Prior to connecting with Joe and his team, I was petrified. Within hours of being put in touch with Joe and his team, I was immediately released from jail. Joe and his team work 24/7. He is extremely responsive. Trust me, if anyone tells you a criminal defense law team can be effective not working nights and weekends is full of it. That is unless you enjoy spending an extra 2-3 days in jail. Joe and his team are extremely good at what they do and immediately put you at ease. The level of detail with which him and his team work is amazing. Most importantly, Joe has an air of confidence that really helps instill confidence as a client but also manages expectations properly so that you know exactly what is possible, how long the process will take and what you can expect. What he says, you can take to the bank. He is upbeat, positive and most importantly...non judgmental. You will not be treated like a number nor will you feel any less than human at anytime in dealings with Joe and his team. Joe is well connected with many counties in the state which is huge. While he has great relationships with judges and prosecutors, you can feel state prosecutors demeanor change when he walks in the room. Joe broke down the states prosecution and witness testimony by a law enforcement officer with ease. He is detailed, methodical and commanding when presenting arguments. I could go on forever about the benefits of Joe and his team but its all about the outcomes. My case was dismissed. I have my life back and I owe it to Joe and his team. Trust me on this, if you're in a jam and need defense, you need to take a look at Joe's firm. Don't just take my word on it, do yourself a favor and look at the cases they've won on their website which will back up every single thing I stated here. Thank you for giving me my life back Joe. I can't thank you enough!

I was reffered to Joe Tamburino by an advocate. It was the best decision I made for a lawyer. Joe was professional and he spoke at ease with me telling me that my case definately has legal arguments that I can fight. Joe and Hillary's tireless work they put in to dispute my case led to the dissmal of my case and I am now free to apply for graduate school without worry of anything on my academic transcripts. I would definately recommend Joe to anyone who needs a lawyer. Thank you Caplan & Tamburino especially Joe Tamburino and Hillary Parsons

In a moment our son's life was forever changed and he was looking at a felony charge created out of lies and alcohol. With guided luck we secured Joe Tamburino to represent our son. First and foremost Joe is a fabulous attorney. However he is also a positive and forthright man at a time when keeping dark clouds at bay is difficult to do. After two and a half months Joe won the first part of our sons case. Two and a half months later we had resolution to the rest of the nightmare and our son was not going to spend the rest of his life as a felon. Thanks to Joe this is over. He believed the truth our son was telling and was able to bring that truth to light. His ability was amazing. We are forever grateful and would recommend Joe and the entire law firm to anyone who wanted thee best representation!

After being charged with a serious felony, a family member recommended Joe. At our first meeting, I knew he was the man for the job. Throughout the entire process his confidence, knowledge, and professionalism was unbelievable! Joe and his office left no stone unturned during their investigation of the facts. He always addressed my concerns and kept me at ease. When my case went to trail, he did an absolutely outstanding job! I was acquitted of all charges! High recommended!

Can't say enough great things about these guys. Let me just say right off the bat that I am a writer, and my case involved the defense of a book; so this review is a little wordy.

In July 2014, I was served with a harassment restraining order at my job in New Jersey by a woman in Minnesota with whom I had an affair for a year and a half… All because of the book I was writing about events that ultimately led to my divorce, the sale of my house, and a move across the country. If I had let this order stand, I would literally be jailed for writing a book.

Initially, I thought I could take her on alone because the charges seemed so ridiculous. I was so sure I could win just by walking into the courtroom with a copy of the Constitution. But when I got back to Minnesota, I learned she had lawyered up and they were playing hardball. They thought they could push me around, so I needed a great defense team to help me save the memoir which I had spent more than a year working on.

Caplan & Tamburino may have been a little more pricey than the competition, but I could see in my web logs that Joe Tamburino and his team were putting a lot of effort into reviewing the details of my case before I even met with them for the initial consultation; before I had even paid them a dime. I knew Joe Tamburino was the right guy for the job.

I'm sure I was a real pain at times, too, because I wanted to have a very "hands on" role in my defense. But Joe never shut me out and he kept me actively involved. I always felt like I was in control of my case and he expertly delivered the statements, memorandums, and examination in a professional manner that I never would have been able to on my own. Even up until the very end of our final court appearance, six months later, far longer than he ever thought he'd be involved in the case he took on for a flat rate, he was on-point. He never backed down in the face of her attorney's dirty tricks and intimidation tactics.

After Joe's closing argument last week, I knew there was no way we could lose. Just today, December 27, 2014, I received notice that after six long months of delays and stalling by her side, we won our case and my book will be published. This case may very well have big first amendment implications in Minnesota and beyond. Losing this case was not an option. I know I picked the right firm.

Caplan & Tamburnio Law Firm has demonstrated a professional and effective style of work after I asked to be represented. I made some poor choices last summer and had never been to court before, or even charged with a crime. After speaking with Mr. Joeseph Tamburino about my situation, he handled it so fast and had a solution that it just amazed me. I could tell that he really knew what he was doing and reassured me that this case was ours. This kept in a good place until the day came that we won our court case. I would recommend this Law Firm to ANYONE and would definitely go back seeking guidance, granted I needed to. (Hopefully I don't). This man exceeded my expectations when he represented me and I couldn't be more grateful.

Let it be known I have never written a review in my life. With that being said....The pro's at Caplan & Tamburino literally saved my lifestyle from a dui charge from the Champlin police department.
I interviewed three firms in Minneapolis with Allan Caplan and an associate being the only attorneys meeting in person providing me with my options, solid defense strategies and expectations before leaving the office.
Hillary Parsons was the attorney that took the lead in my case. Her professionalism and trial expertise is unparalleled. She understood my apprehension toward the entire legal process which led to Ms. Parsons representing my case with me rarely setting foot into a court room. In fact, through the firms professional channels and streamline efficiency submitting legal documents to the State, I only lost my right to drive for a total of one hour. I mention that because I remember the cop harassing me at the time of my booking about a guaranteed loss of driving privileges prior to a court date as he cut my license. He showed me pictures of the breathalyzer I will need to have installed in my car and bragged to me that he has never had a dui charge overturned.
Ms. Parsons had several defense strategies to represent my case and did hours of leg work to prepare for her appearances. It was very evident the prosecutors and judges totally respected her legal opinions and courtroom expertise. We declined every plea presented to us.
The end result? Because of the teamwork at Caplan & Tamburino....every charge (both criminal and civil) was dismissed!!
Here's the kicker....After the eight month fight in the court rooms and all the work Ms. Parsons put into my case to win on all fronts....I received an unexpected refund check in the mail. The firm had already saved me thousands of dollars while providing me with a defense worthy of a Hollywood script. I will forever be indebted to Caplan & Tamburino and especially Hillary Parsons.

They are professional, discreet and effective. I called them after some very bad judgment landed me in Hennepin County jail for a short visit. Though they wouldn't make the same sorts of empty promises other firms did, they were honest and forthright about the sort of defense they could offer. In the end, the outcome was by far better than anything I'd been promised by lesser attorneys. I would use them again, though I really hope I don't have to.

I was recently in bad car accident involving myself and a passenger. I was driving my friend home from the bar when she started horsing around, trying to take my eyeglasses, and accidentally grabbed the wheel causing us to go into a ditch and hit a lamp post. She was injured severely and I was left slightly beaten and bruised with a broken thumb. They whisked her off to the hospital and myself to jail for the weekend. When the smoked cleared the state had revoked my license and was charging me with 5 counts of Criminal Vehicular Operation (due to injured passenger) and 2 counts of DUI. There is no disputing that I had a couple drinks throughout the night, but I was in no way overly intoxicated to be operating my vehicle, I was there after all to provide a safe ride home for my friend. I tell you all this because the "facts" upon the scene did not paint the truth and the police reports were even less factual.

Caplan & Tamburino's lawyers (especially Hillary Hujanen and Joe Tamburino) were exceedingly professional and personal. They advised me of all the rights I had regarding my case. They advised my injured passenger (and friend) of the rights she had in the case and the contact she should be getting from the prosecution. All in all they helped me navigate through a tremendous s@#$ storm of legal papers, drawn out test results and half-true police reports. They advised me of the how/why state prosecutors ring up so many charges against an individual. They advised my passenger of her rights to have her story and wishes be taken into account in the judgement of my case and they took my own story to the prosecution.

It is their level of professionalism, experience and personal character that was able to sway the prosecution in my case from a full on assault for a CVO conviction to a plea for a 1st time DUI. The consequences to myself being much much less severe.

In the end they provided me with an excellent defense, an excellent legal resource (making themselves available to my questions and always getting back to my communications very promptly) and excellent guidance to myself and my friend in the handling of this debacle. Beyond that they are extremely down to earth, pleasant and caring people. I am very thankful to have had them on my team these last 8 months and am grateful to their excellent advise and counsel.

I have no problem giving Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm my highest professional recommendation and will not hesitate to contact them in the future should the need arise. They are the best.
