Client Reviews

Outstanding service and support!

I cannot thank Bob and Shanlee enough. I would describe the care they gave to my matter as holistic, making sure that I was comfortable with the process, encouraging me doing the things that would enhance my well-being and be favorable to the court, and that I was fully satisfied with the outcome.

My legal matter was very daunting and at times seemed an insurmountable obstacle to moving forward in life. But the entire process was so clearly explained with easy-to-follow instructions given by the Speeters, that I felt even going into court that whatever the outcome, it would be manageable. They worked hard not just on the legal matters (and covering every angle of those matters), but making sure I had a sense of security throughout. I really felt I got even more than I paid for with the care that was given.

Thank you so much Bob and Shanlee, I am very grateful!

On the right path

Bob and Shanlee are an amazing duo and are doing some great work. I was asked by a young family member for help to clear up a legal record. While I thought the matter would be a little more straightforward, they offered so much more than legal advice. My family member needs to address addiction issues before we can work on legal records. Bob and Shanlee are doing such deep and meaningful work. They were firm yet loving and kind. I walked away from the first meeting amazed by their knowledge, and understanding of addiction and all the ugly arms and legs that go along with it. I feel blessed to be working with them. It’s just what our family needed right now. As Shanlee said -“it takes a village to raise a child” – I agree.

Criminal Defense

Bob and Shanlee were an amazing team to work with. They worked tirelessly and with full attention to our son. While we found our first experience in the criminal justice stystem sad and painful, Bob and Shanlee supported us through the entire process. They provided amazing resources, peronal insight, and emotional support on days that seemed unbearable. Most impressive, was their commitment to our son and his future. Their interest was not only in the legal process but in helping our son address his own wiring. Even as the process has concluded, Bob and Shanlee remain in contact for support and continued resources within our community.

Robert Speeter and Shanlee Speeter were supremely efficient and forthcoming to me about my case and my plans to remain law abiding after the fact and the life I wish to lead going forward. The judgement on my case was fair because of his efforts. Not only that but I also revived tremendous support every step of the way by him and his team including Shanlee who went beyond the call of duty.

More than just an attorney

Robert Speeter and Shanlee Speeter were amazing for me. They are a treatment based team. They got me into treatment and handled all my legal affairs while I was in there. And counseled me when I needed it. They work so well as a team! Robert took on my criminal AND chips case. Even though, he doesn’t normally handle chips. He got the felony charge dropped! He also handled my DWI case back in 2011. So I was a repeat customer! Needless to say, without the support of Bob and Shanlee, I don’t think I’d be where I am today.  Shanlee truly was one of a kind when it comes to supporting addiction!

Thank you.

Mr. and Mrs. Speeter was easy to work with and he explains everything as simply as possible- it made it way less of a burden for me when I was going through rough times. He made it affordable for me and I’m very thankful for that. Couldn’t have asked for better!



My recent experience having Robert Speeter represent me on a DWI could not have been any better. Great guy! Both he and his wife went above and beyond to help me. Shanlee was so much help and made everything so easy. I highly recommend!

It was wonderful working with Mr Speeter. He is very knowledgeable and honest. I choose him and his wife Shanlee because they are very culturally knowledgeable. He has experience in working clients from all walks of life . He understands the barriers we face as minorities. He is able to explain that to others.  Shanlee spent hours with me and saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars going through fine details that made all the difference for this case.  The two are a power duo!

Highly Recommend!!!

I was arrested for a DUI last December. I was referred to Bob by a family friend whom said “He was the best”, and she was right! He never judged me or made me feel embarrassed for my arrest. He was supportive and trustworthy. I felt more than confident that he could help me accomplish the best possible outcome, and he did just that! I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Highly Recommend Robert Speeter

I highly recommend Robert Speeter. Over the years, I had found myself in trouble due to DUI’s. I had hired other lawyers for past cases and it wasn’t until I had hired Mr.Speeter for my last case that my life changed. One of the main differences between Robert Speeter and other attorneys, is that for the first time in my life, I felt like I had someone in my corner. Robert believed in me. He is extremely honest and trustworthy and you know upon meeting him that he cares about your situation and the outcome of your case. He gives great advice and truly knows his law. In working with Robert Speeter, I could not have hoped for better results on my case. In addition it was actually a game changer for me. Today, I am almost 4 years sober. I am truly grateful for all he did for me.  Shanlee picked me up for 3 years and took me to get the help I need and saved my life in so many ways.

Extremely non- judgmental and passionate Attorney that goes up and beyond the call of duty

I have had the opportunity to work with several Attorneys. First of all, Bob is a very nonjudgmental individual. He understands addiction in-depthly. He is more concerned that his client finds a solution to their individual situation vs. repeat business. Bob is personally available. He is very patient and caring. He explains things very clearly. In addition to being an attorney for almost 30 years, he also has an accounting background which makes him a financial expert. Bob is also a teacher and loves to teach. I truly believe that Bob wants the best for his client and their loved ones. I highly recommend Bob for any criminal defense , wrongful death or personal injury case. Bob is very professional, ethically and honest. You will be extremely pleased with your representation and experience with Bob as he truly goes up and beyond the call of duty. I highly recommend Bob for potential clients that want to have direct access to an Attorney that is extremely personal.

Thank you , Bob Speeter ~

Bob Speeter has helped our family out a couple of different times, most recently he helped my daughter who was being wrongfully accused of a hit and run accident. Since the Minneapolis Detective assigned to the case opted out of doing his job , Bob and my daughter had to do all of the leg work. Bob directed us as to where to go for what info. and helped us get what we needed, and after 14 long months the case was finally dismissed, all because Bob believed in what was right and did’nt give up… I would reccomend him to anyone that needs a lawyer that cares and goes above and beyond !!!!!

I was charged 3 times for DWI Gross Misdemeanors and Bob Speeter defended me. He came to see me when I was arrested and in jail. He explained my legal challenges with compassion and understanding. He did the work, he is experienced, aggressive and understands the law. Bob had good re pore with Prosecutors and Judges. There are alternatives to jail and he fought for me. He encouraged me in my recovery. I have so much respect for him.  I also have major respect for Shanlee as she helped me in every way beyond legal charges and will be a friend for life.

A Miracle Worker

“I was wrongfully accused in a drug crime and facing eight and a half years in prison. Robert Speeter doggedly researched my case until finding an answer. The case was summarily dismissed before even going to trial. It has been my observation that many attorneys do not really “defend” you. Rather, they “process” you through the system. It is important to stress that not only does Mr. Speeter actually defend you, but he actually cares about your physical and mental well being. In my opinion, it would not be possible to find an attorney more ethical than he is. Robert Speeter has my highest regard and recommendation. I would not hesitate to hire him again”. V.E.S.

Best Lawyer in the Midwest Robert Speeter

Mr Speeter goes above and beyond his duty to make sure his clients are taken care of and are kept informed and handles your case as though its his only one. He makes you feel as though your case is as important to him as if it were himself he was defending. A man of high integrity it shows through his work and dealings with you as his client. If you want a knowledgeable bull dog fighting for you in the arena then this is your man . Thanks Bob and Shanlee for all you two have done for me and my family.
