Christa J. Groshek, Attorney
Christa Groshek has excellent experience litigating cases to both judges and juries. She has an exceptional trial record, even getting some cases dismissed on constitutional grounds before trial. She has developed a solid reputation as a Minnesota trial attorney for successfully defending clients against a wide range of charges in criminal court.
Christa Groshek graduated Cum Laude from William Mitchell College of Law. During law school, Christa was a law clerk for the Washington County Public Defender's Office where she received her first criminal defense experience.
Christa later took a position as the law clerk for the Honorable Thomas Armstrong, Washington County District Court Judge in Stillwater. There, she worked in civil law, doing legal research and drafting orders.
Christa took her first attorney position at the Legal Rights Center in Minneapolis. There she practiced criminal defense in Juvenile Court. After approximately one year, Christa joined the Hennepin County Public Defender's Office in downtown Minneapolis. Continuing in Juvenile Court she worked on Delinquencies and represented families in Child Protection cases.
After a total of three years experience in Juvenile Court, Christa transferred to the Adult Felony Trial Team. On the Trial Team, Christa handled many cases ranging from DWIs to Murder. In Christa's first year on the Trial Team, she handled more trials in one year than some private defense attorneys have in ten years. Significantly, 80% of those trials resulted in NOT GUILTY jury verdicts. Since that time, Ms. Groshek has litigated many cases with outstanding results.
After four years with the Hennepin County Public Defender's Office, Christa Groshek has been in private practice since the fall of 2005. She has continued to expand that practice opening the Groshek Law office in November 2006, in her current location.
