About Me

I graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School in May 2010 and became licensed as an attorney in October 2010.  I began at Drewes Law, PLLC in July 2009, starting as a law clerk before transitioning to an associate.  I am licensed in the state and federal courts of Minnesota as well as the 8th Circuit.  I have successfully handled cases in state and federal district court, the 8th Circuit, the Minnesota Court of Appeals, and am currently awaiting a decision on a case that was heard by the Minnesota Supreme Court in November 2012.  I began work at US Bank in November 2013.


 


I private practice work focused primarily in litigation with a real estate focus.  The majority of cases I work on relate to foreclosure defense, although I also worked with clients regarding a variety of business and contract dispute and was involved with the firm's consumer bankruptcy practice.


 


While in law school, I completed multiple legal volunteer projects and was also enrolled in the law school's Civil Practice Clinic.  As part of the clinic, I represented clients under the guidance of a supervising attorney, primarily in the areas of family and employment law.


 


Prior to law school, I worked at Eide Bailly, LLP in their Fargo, ND office for approximately one year.  I received my undergraduate degree from Concordia College, Moorhead, MN in 2006.  I was very active in both the Concordia community and the Fargo-Moorhead community.  During my time in Moorhead, I was a four-year competitor for Concordia's speech and debate team, a tutor, a member of Concordia's student government, a volunteer at a daycare geared towards "at-risk" children, a Special Olympics coach, an adopt-a-grandparent volunteer, and a political volunteer.


 


I'm also an avid sports fan.
