Randy always kept me informed of what was going on with my case. He was gracious and saw to my needs in the auto accident case. Very good staff also.

Randy explained all of my options very clearly that I could also take my case to small claims court. He also wrote a very nice letter trying to settle my case out of court, and he was upfront about everything .

Randy was hired to review documents concerning independent contractors. He was timely and did an excellent job of providing information to meet our needs. I would strongly recommend Randy as a Lawyer for your organization or personnel needs.

Above and Beyond
It was a pleasure to work with Mr. Knutson and his staff. The help they provided from start to finish with my law suit was timely, effective and ended with a satisfying resolution. I was always informed as to what was occurring in my case with very clear communication. My calls and emails were answered timely and in a personal way. I never felt like I was just a another case. I will continue to recommend them to my friends and family.

Randy Knutson review
I've worked with Randy Knutson on a couple different cases. He represented me personally on a case involving a local governmental action taken against me that I thought was unjust. Randy acted quickly and respectfully and the case was settle in an appropriate manner. Randy has also consulted with our company on numerous employee actions. He is a voice for people in our community who are oftentimes not heard. Because of this he has helped us understand the hiring opportunities that exist in our community.

Excellent Attorney
After my wife passed away in a automobile accident, Randy handled the auto and health insurance claims. Randy was professional and supportive to my needs which allowed me to stay focused with my family. With Randy's experience and knowledge on this type of claim, he was able to get the proper funds within a short period of time. I would highly recommend Randy for any type of needs.

An excellent Personal Injury Lawyer
I am an international student who got into an accident. I was completely unaware of rules and regulations of how things work in US and without Randy's help I would've been completely lost. He's very good at what he does and I would recommend him to anyone who's in need of a personal injury lawyer.

Highly recommend
I have known and worked with Randy both personally and professionally for the past 10 years. It is very clear that he puts his client's best interests first and foremost. When looking for a lawyer that will work hard, get the job done and represent your best interests, Randy is the guy.

I think that the day we met Randy after our car accident was definitely a blessing. He was so very knowledgeable in this type of case that without him we would have been at the mercy of the insurance companies. I have asked many questions, and some may have seemed very silly, but Randy always was able to answer them promptly and assure me that things were moving as they should. He was not only able to assist in getting the auto accident resolved, but also a guarndianship of my granddaughter thru the court systems. I would recommend Randy very highly to anyone needing legal counsel. I think what i like the most is that he is not only a very knowledgable lawyer, but also a very involved community - oriented citizen. And i like that he seems a very good judge of character and human nature ------ and really just says it like it is...I know that we can never say thank you enough!
