About Me

I have represented victims of negligence in personal injury and wrongful death cases since 1977. As a past president of the Minnesota Association for Justice I have taught many other attorneys trial skills and have been elected to the American Board of Trial Advocates. I was named an Attorney of the Year by the Minnesota Lawyer newspaper for my skill in helping injury victims.

My goal in my profession is to provide the best possible service to my clients and to advocate for them to the best of my ability.
