About me

     Serving Minnesota, I offer knowledgeable, experienced, legal services and representation in Real Property, Family, Probate and Appellate areas of practice.  I am dedicated to helping clients meet their goals affordably.  As a small firm, I am able to give absolute, personal attention to your case and your needs.

     “Honest, efficient legal services” means I will give the client an honest opinion about their case upfront and throughout representation.  Whenever possible I will attempt to resolve their case without need of the courts and expensive litigation.  This will lessen your stress and save you money. 

     If a reasonable settlement isn’t possible, I am experienced in litigating cases through trial and appeal.
