  • Craig William Trepanier

    I have worked with John Berg on a case together. We also office out of the same building and frequently discuss the issues presented in our cases with one another. John is personable, friendly, and down-to-earth. He is a very practical and knowledgeable attorney with a solid understanding of debt collection issues. He is also familiar with probate law and attorney's liens in the State of Minnesota.
