About me

Chase L. Andersen focuses his practice in complex marital dissolutions and other family law matters including contested and uncontested divorces, equitable property division, child custody and parenting time/visitation, child support, spousal maintenance, antenuptial and postnuptial agreements, post-decree modifications, Orders for Protection (O.F.P.’s), and paternity actions.


For the past 15 years, Chase has been committed, both personally and professionally, to assisting individuals in need. Following undergraduate school, Chase worked several years in the social services arena as a counselor and then as a social worker. Throughout these experiences, Chase excelled at professionally addressing sensitive matters, advocating for his clients’ rights, and effectively resolving complicated issues. Since earning his Juris Doctorate degree (with a Concentration in Litigation and Dispute Resolution) from Drake University Law School, Chase’s main area of practice has continued to be in family law.


He is currently serving as Co-Chair of the Family Law Section of the Minnesota Association for Justice (formerly known as the Minnesota Trial Lawyers Association) and is an active participant in several other professional associations. In his spare time, Chase enjoys running, golfing, bicycling, traveling, and spending time with his friends and family.
