Craig Andresen is a great attorney especially for a client who has a difficult bankruptcy problem. I've worked with Craig both in working in the same law office and in referrring clients to him. Craig is not a "form filler". He tailors the client's bankruptcy plan to fit that person's needs. He has my high recommendation.
William Peterson Probate Attorney
|MN||Authorized to practice||1987||07/31/2015|
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 reprimand is the result of an instance in which the lawyer's IOLTA trust account reconciliations did not comply with the rule requiring periodic reconciliations of such accounts. This warranted a reprimand only, as it did not involve harm to clients, and the lawyer remains in good standing to practice law before all Minnesota courts, the bankruptcy court, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.”
