I grew up in Shakopee, Minnesota, where I make my home and office today.  After graduating from Carleton College in Northfiled, MN, I attended William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul.  Our law firm started in the early 1970's with the guiding principle of serving the varying needs of the local community.  Though the communities around our office have grown significantly since, we continue to serve that guiding principle.  With lawyers that have strengths in many practice areas, our firm can help. 

Today, I live, work and play in the Twin Cities area.  I live with my wife, Jen and 3 wonderful kids.

Shakopee Chamber of Commerce-Board Member, Board Chair, Member of Public Policy Committee

Scott County Historical Society-Board Member, Board Chair

I have worked with Kevin creating a lease agreement, a debt settlement negotiation and now our estate plan. He is "my lawyer" and I do recommend him to family and friends.
