About me

Jake Fischer leads Swier Law Firm's Agricultural Law Practice Group and focuses his practice on agricultural issues, including crop insurance disputes, employment law disputes, agricultural litigation, entity selection and general corporate matters, environmental concerns and disputes, governmental regulation, purchase and sale of agricultural property, and taxation issues. Jake is also the author of the popular book Agricultural Law in South Dakota and serves on the South Dakota Bar Association's Agricultural Law Committee.   

Jake graduated cum laude from the University of Minnesota Law School, where he served on the Environmental Law moot court and devoted over 100 hours of service to the Minnesota Justice Foundation. Prior to joining Swier Law Firm, Jake worked as a judicial clerk in Minnesota’s Fourth Judicial District, serving Hennepin County. Upon completion of his service as a judicial clerk, Jake moved into a position with The Minnesota Project, where he worked with Minnesota farmers on renewable energy and energy efficiency issues.

Jake grew up on a farm outside of Parkston, South Dakota and is excited to be back in South Dakota after living in the Twin Cities for almost 10 years. Jake and his wife Robin have one daughter, Rosalie. His hobbies include music, the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers, and helping on the family farm.
