An Appellate Attorney who has consistently achieved results for his clients.

Welcome to

Picture of Mark Nyvold

The extensive appellate experience I have gained over the last twenty years in the Minnesota appellate courts, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court has enabled me to successfully represent numerous clients in their criminal and civil appeals. At the district court level, I have represented clients in dozens of state post-conviction cases-either as part of a direct appeal, or as a separate proceeding after an appeal, and in federal habeas cases.

Recent Cases:

State v. Quast, 2018 WL 2470945 (Minn. App. 2018) (Denying State's appeal of order suppressing drugs found in automobile search).
State v. Halvorson, 2017 WL 84146 (Minn. App. 2017) (Denying State's appeal of dismissal of alleged zoning-ordinance violation, where dismissal had been based on an unconstitutionally vague conditional-use permit).
United States v. Mayokok, 854 F.3d 987 (8th Cir. 2017) (Reversing five-level increase to defendant's offense-severity level and remanding for re-sentencing).
