About me

I have been practicing law since 2006.  I practice exclusively in family law.  My goal is to assist clients through life's transitions.  I attempt to resolve cases amicably and at a low cost, when that is an option.  My primary areas of practice are divorces, high net worth divorces, custody and parenting time, child support, parenting time modifications, post-decree issues, step-parent adoptions, grandparent rights, and domestic abuse.


 


I am very involved in the MN State Bar Association and am the Chairperson of the Family Law Section for 2015-2016.  I acted as Vice Chair in 2014-2015 and have been involved in the Strategic Planning Committee and Legislative Committee since 2013.  I am on the Family Law Institute Planning Committee.


 


I was raised in Brookings, South Dakota and graduated from Creighton Law School. I currently live with my family in Maple Grove, MN.
