Excellent attorney
If you want an attorney who is reasonable and professional, Jason is that attorney. He was upfront, yet fair with my case. I appreciate his help and would recommend his services.

Great lawyer with a great team
When I was having trouble with my own lawyer for a divorce from a very hostile and difficult co-parent, Jason guided me through creating a concise plan to help both myself and my attorney deal with all the obstacles that came before us. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable and a great communicator, but his staff and team are top notch. I could not recommend him enough.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
Getting divorced was one of the worst experiences of my life, but Jason and and his staff handled the legal side so I could focus on getting through it mentally and emotionally. I am so grateful for his help. I was in no place to worry about all the paperwork and back-and-forth. He took the burden off of my shoulders and I ended up with a good agreement in the end. I couldn't have done it without him.

Attorney Kohlmeyer for the win!
Mr. Kohlmeyer is everything you want in a good lawyer. I called Kohlmeyer Hagen desperate because I was certain I was going to get screwed over in my divorce!! But thank god for Jason and his team. They were wonderful when it came to dealing with my (now) ex, his horrific lawyer, and trying to split the business we previously shared. Jason and his team also maintained great communication throughout my entire divorce process and were quick to answer any questions I had. Jason made sure that I felt like my case was a priority from the day I hired him. Not only did Jason ensure I did not get screwed over, I couldn’t be happier with the outcome! They say no one wins in a divorce, but ever since I hired Jason I really feel like I did win!

Very Professional
I went through a lengthy and difficult divorce. Jason and his staff were very professional and answered all of the questions that I had all the way through. The follow up care and concern that I have received since the case has ended is priceless.

Excellent representation
Jason has represented me from a distance since I do not live in Mankato. He has been an awesome representative for me. He kept me in the loop, communicated with me every step of the way and did a good job of explaining the process and options I faced and consequences for certain decisions I might make. And he has been most helpful after my legal action in following up on certain actions to ensure what was agreed upon was completed. I will definitely continue to work with Jason whenever I need him.

2 thumbs up!
Jason and his associates at Rosengren Kohlmeyer Law Office are amazing! Helpful, friendly, honest, knowledgeable, timely, caring... I could not have picked a better firm to help me through a very difficult divorce.

DWI Client
Jason did a great job negotiating a plea deal for my DWI. He was able to save me from being without a license for very long, and the fine was reduced to a reasonable amount without going to trial. If you want the best DWI lawyer in southern Minnesota, Jason is your guy! Highly recommend

Mr. Kohlmeyer is an excellent attorney!!
Mr. Kohlmeyer is an excellent attorney ... I would definitely hire him again if I needed a lawyer!! Jason walked/talked me through the entire process of the ticket, arrest, and subsequent hearing ... which needless to say could have been a very scary process. Not only did he make the process understandable and less scary, but the overall outcome could not have been better! Jason saved me my good name and my driving record and saved my family thousands of dollars with his work. I could not be more pleased or thankful for Jason and the people at his firm! If you have legal trouble hire Jason Kohlmeyer!

Divorce information
Jason was very forthcoming with what was in my favor and what wasn't. He pulled no punches and didn't give me false hope on anything. I felt he was very honest and very generous with his time. I didn't feel at all like a number. He was very engaging and genuinely involved in my concerns. Thank you for all your advice and sharing your knowledge.

Excellent lawyer and excellent Staff
I really appreciate Jason's help through my divorce. I couldn't have done it without him. He is very knowledgeable and very confident. He kept his word regarding fees and timeline to get my divorce done. Diana, his paralegal, is an excellent assistant, she was really instrumental in getting things done on time. They both are fantastic.

I'm glad it turned out the way it did, it was a bit tricky being an international divorce, but I'm glad we got the result you wanted. Thanks for the kind words. -Jason

Superb attorney!
I definitely recommend Jason for any type of case you need an attorney for! He was immensely helpful, and kept me in the loop for everything. His response rate was also very helpful to me, because he always answered my questions right away, which was a big help knowing I was even in a different country for when my case was going down. After working in a firm for some time, you can really start to know whether or not you have a great attorney, you could easily tell he was always genuinely trying to help, Great guy!

Great attorney
Jason Kohlmeyer did my divorce. I had know idea what was going to happen, since i knew nothing about divorce law. Jason and his team were always there to answer all my questions. Jason got me more out of the divorce settlement then i thought i would get. Thanks Jason & Diana

Solid, among the best of the best!
Let me preface my review by saying it is really a shame that such a horrible review was published before mine. Are Mr. Kohlmeyer and his law firm perfect? Of course they aren't. What I can say is that they certainly care and are 100% professional and competent. The golden rule applies to adults as well as children. I saw nothing of what the previous client eluded to. Mr. Kohlmeyer is a talented attorney, no doubt about it. Diana, April and Mr. Rosengren were all very helpful any time a question needed an answer. Mr. Kohlmeyer will take your case and make it better. You might have to pay a little more for Mr. Kohlmeyer and his services but I find it hard to put a price on what may be a life changing event. If you want what I feel is the best when it comes to representation of the law, Mr. Kohlmeyer is the attorney for you.

Michael, Thanks for the kind review and comments. It's great working with a person who understands that the law isn't perfect, but the system and my firm try our best to help. I also respect and take responsibility for your 4/5 rating on my responsiveness. It's curse that many lawyers have and that is we don't reply as fast as we should and often not as fast as the non-legal business world does. Both myself and firm are going to take this review to heart and next time turn that 4/5 into 5/5! -Jason

Competent and compassionate
Jason Kohlmeyer and his paralegal, April, helped our son with a very serious drug charge. Jason was very knowledgeable about the law and the legal community in Mankato. He was able to navigate through the legal system which in turn allowed our son the time he needed to get the help for his addiction. We will forever be grateful to Jason and his team. April and Jason answered all our questions, kept us informed and provided great wisdom and guidance. With their help and our son's commitment to sobriety, the charges were substantially reduced. Our son now has the opportunity to live a sober and productive life. We would give Jason the highest rating possible.
