In 1985, defense attorney Dan Monnat teamed with legal scholar Stan Spurrier to form the criminal defense team of Monnat & Spurrier, Chartered. Today the firm has five lawyers, and one overriding philosophy: cases are won with vigorous courtroom argument, backed by rigorous legal scholarship. For every lawyer in the courtroom, there is one in the office, poring over case law and developing cutting-edge legal strategies. The firm's winning reputation for criminal defense is widely known through media coverage of Monnat's tenacious representation of accountants, children, clergy, doctors, lawyers, law enforcement officers, teachers and the unfortunate person whose home was mistakenly raided by police as being that of BTK. Monnat's articles have been featured in numerous legal publications, and he lectures nationwide on criminal defense strategies and juror psychology.
