About My Practice

I am committed to providing you with top notch legal service at an affordable price. I approach every client with a focus on integrity and my goal is to provide a low stress atmosphere along with practical legal advice. 

I am a lifelong resident of the state of Minnesota. I attended the University of St. Catherine for my undergraduate degree and I graduated from William Mitchell College of Law in 1993. I live in an old house that was built in 1898. It's about one mile from the house I grew up in. I have been practicing law for 24 years focusing on simple wills and estate work. I also work with the prepaid legal plans Hyatt and ARAG. 

I have significant trial and motion experience. From 2006 to 2008 I represented clients from Alexandra house in Order for Protection hearings. I am a member of the state bars of both Minnesota and Wisconsin.
