Serving the Brainerd Lakes area with top quality legal services for 20 years.
I have practiced law for over 20 years. I truly enjoy helping people get through difficult situations. My practice areas include family law, bankruptcy, criminal defense, landlord-tenant, real estate, fair debt collection.
I am admitted to practice before the Minnesota Supreme Court, Federal Court, United States Bankruptcy Court, and The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Court.
When not at work I spend my time biking, skiing with my dogs, working on community projects, with my wife Sarah and our twins.
I am also a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association, Paul Bunyan Cyclists and Northland Arboretum. I have served on the Board of Directors for the YMCA and the Brainerd Public Library, and the City of Brainerd Walkable Bikeable Committee.

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
Since I have started working for Ed Shaw I have learned many things about the practice of law - particularly in family law situations. Ed is very knowledgeable and has represented the gambit of clients over his 18+ years of experience in this area. Ed is dedicated to doing the best he can on every case and works hard for his clients, as do the staff in the building. I would endorse Ed to work on any type of family law issue that can come up.
