I endorse this lawyer, a NACBA chair for Minnesota, and I am appreciative that he truly is a super lawyer.. He is, in my opinion, one of the best bankruptcy attorneys in the Twin Cities. His NACBA chairmanship and his contributions to the MSBA Bankruptcy Sections and Institute have been helpful to all of our colleagues defending and representing our clients.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Reprimand/probation means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. The State also monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Craig’s comment: “The public discipline is the result of an instance in which the lawyer did not comply with rules involving reconciliation of bank statements for IOLTA (interest bearing) trust accounts, and not involving financial harm to clients. The lawyer is in good standing to practice law in Minnesota state and federal courts.”
