Derek Chauvin Has Attorney for Appeal 

On October 15, William F. Mohrman, a Minneapolis attorney, filed a notice in the Minnesota Court of Appeals that he shall appear as counsel of record for Chauvin.[1]

Mohrman is a partner in the Minneapolis law firm of Mohrman, Kaardal & Erickson, P.A. and previously was an associate attorney with the Minneapolis office of Faegre & Benson and a trial attorney with the Minneapolis law firm of Felharber Larson Fenlon & Vogt. He also has served as an Adjunct Professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minneapolis and was awarded “Attorney of the Year” by the Minnesota Lawyer publication. [2]

Mohrman has a J.D. degree with an Order of the Coif for academic excellence from the University of Colorado Law School and an undergraduate degree, cum laude, from the University of Colorado and bar admissions in the state and federal courts in that state and Minnesota  as well as the federal court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Now Mohrman will be remedying Chauvin’s various failures to abide by rules regarding his appeal. [3]
