Kenneth Lee LaBore

About me


I work hard to investigate how and why serious issues of neglect and abuse occur and then hold the facilities and care giver accountable finanically also with a focus on new policies and procedures, training and equipment to reduce the chances of similiar injuries to other vulnerable adults.


In addition to being an attorney I work to be an advocate for the rights of vulnerable adults and seniors in our community.  I frequently speak at senior centers, legal seminars, advocacy groups, community events and other locations offering advice on issues important to seniors and caregivers.

    I endorse this lawyer. I worked closely with Ken and he is one of the most knowledgeable nursing home litigators I know in Minneapolis. In addition to his wealth of knowledge, Ken is hard working, an excellent communicator and easy to work with. I would strongly encourage anyone who needs legal counseling in medical malpractice or nursing home abuse situations to give Ken a call.
