With hundreds of felony and misdemeanor trials under her belt, Ms. Hedlund is an adept trial attorney, particularly with respect to her ability to effectively communicate with juries. Ms. Hedlund has successfully defended numerous misdemeanor and felony cases alike including DWI, Possession of Marijuana, Assault Family Violence, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Manufacturing and Delivery, Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child, Indecency with a Child, Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and every level of Theft.
Although Ms. Hedlund thrives and excels in trial, she understands that a case can be won for the client outside the courtroom as well. As a former prosecutor, she has negotiated countless misdemeanor and felony cases and knows what evidence is strong for the State and what is not. She believes in employing tough but reasonable plea bargain techniques while demonstrating courtesy and professionalism in all of her dealings. Ms. Hedlund does not believe you should ever plead guilty to an offense that you did not commit and will only advise pleading in all other situations when all investigation and tactical plea bargaining options have been exhausted.
As a prosecutor, Ms. Hedlund developed a strong working relationship with many district and county court judges and prosecutors as well as police officers from the surrounding agencies. She has worked closely with caseworkers from CASA, proving helpful in CPS matters. Having an attorney that has earned the confidence and respect of these individuals is important to you, the client!
Ms. Hedlund regularly attends Continuing Legal Education courses to keep abreast of the ever-changing laws in our State. She is an active member of many political and legal organizations that have a hand in how those laws affect you as a citizen.

National Order of the Barristers, March 2002
The Order of Barristers is a recognized national honorary organization whose purpose is to encourage the development of written and oral advocacy skills through effective law school programs by formal recognition of the best advocates that those programs produce. Basically, there are only two nationally recognized awards that can be bestowed upon a law school graduate, Law Review and The National Order of the Barristers. Even before her courtroom days as a licensed attorney, Ms. Hedlund impressed both the Dean and Professors of her law school with her effective trial skills who in turn nominated and elected her to the National Order of the Barristers. Only one who has exhibited excellence and attained high honor through the art of courtroom advocacy can been selected as a National Member of the Order of Barristers.
