About Me

I am at the peak of my experience at this time, having passed the Bar in 1976.  Client satisfaction is very high as illustrated in my website.  I am a Certified Financial Planner, which is a unique qualification for an attorney, requiring approximately 2 years of study and 2 days of testing with a pass rate less than 55% in the year I became a CFP.

My strengths include detail orientation and persistence in obtaining a result. I am quick and communicative. I feel that sometimes I wear the other side down through persistence, among other things.

"Industry recognition" on AVVO may be kind of low because I don't want to take the time to solicit recommendations from other attorneys.  A quick free consult, by calling 612-617-9000, should be enough to create confidence in my ability to pursue a successful outcome for you.
