Review Kent Gravelle

About Me

I was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Law (ranked 68th nationally) in 1996.  Upon graduation, I returned to Minnesota, passed the bar on my first attempt and began practicing in criminal law and then family law.  In 2003, I was admitted to the North Dakota bar and began practicing law on behalf of both personal injury plaintiffs and defendants.  I soon began practicing in both Minnesota and North Dakota federal court (see Slivicki v. Dept. of Veteran's Affairs, 2006 WL 2780113, 2006 US DIST LEXIS 73437 and most recently, Larson v. Dept. of Homeland Security, 2012 WL 1899714, 2012 US DIST LEXIS 72234).  I also have experience representing physicians (see Hsu v. ND Board of Medical Examiners, 726 NW2d 216), asbestos defendants (see Vicknair v. Phelps Dodge Industries, 767 NW2d 171, 2009 ND 113 & Vickair II, 794 NW2d 746, 2011 ND 39), bars/restaurants in dram shop actions (see Medland v. Extra Innings Saloon, 2007 WL 5861162, Platt v. Blue Fox Inn & Jimmy's Food & Drink 2007 WL 4562108) and Title IX plaintiffs (see Minnesota Practice at 2007 WL 5321905 and Swanbeck v. Minnesota State University Moorhead, 2006 WL 5616701).  I currently practice worker's compensation and personal injury law for Schoep & McCashin, Chtd in Alexandria, MN
