Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney Tim Webb

​Being under criminal investigation – or worse, charged with a crime – can be incredibly frightening. You become acutely aware that choosing a competent, experienced attorney can make a critical difference to your future. You need to thoroughly trust that your attorney knows the law inside and out, will be responsive and straightforward with you, and has a strong track record of success.

Tim Webb, lead attorney at Neve Webb, focuses on criminal defense, white-collar crime, and professional licensing issues. A seasoned Minnesota defense and trial attorney known for his integrity and expertise, Tim has the experience to anticipate the actions of the prosecution, and plans contingencies to skillfully address whatever they may bring forward.

Mr. Webb believes that consistent communication between attorney and client is a key factor determining a winning case. Once retained, he keeps you consistently aware of the new developments, challenges, potential outcomes, and opportunities that may arise in your case. Among defense attorneys, Tim also has an unusual reputation for not screening his calls. He has always answered his phone himself so he is there for his clients when they need him most.

Mr. Webb’s clients have included law enforcement officials, clergy, politicians, CEOs, doctors, lawyers, teachers, certified public accountants, and other professionals, as well as corporate clients seeking help in federal and state criminal investigations and prosecutions. Fellow members of the Bar have voted Mr. Webb in the top 5% of “Super Lawyers” – an acknowledgment that he is an attorney they would turn to if they had a legal concern falling under his areas of expertise.

In addition to his criminal defense practice, Mr. Webb has an intimate familiarity with regulatory and licensing issues in the State of Minnesota, having served as Assistant Minnesota Attorney General for five years. This background offers a significant and unique advantage to the medical, dental, legal, real estate, construction, insurance and other professionals who seek his help with their professional licensing needs – including capably addressing complaints that can put those licenses in jeopardy.
