About Lucas

Learn Lucas’s areas of practice.

I am committed to achieving justice for vulnerable persons. I focus my practice on helping those who have been injured physically or financially, whether it be by intentional wrongs, invidious discrimination, or the negligence of others.


I am an accomplished trial lawyer. I am at home in the courtroom and thrive on the challenge of litigating complex cases. Before joining SGB, I worked as a public defender with the King County Department of Public Defense, where I tried dozens of cases to verdict and earned a reputation for both creativity and diligence. I have taught evidence and trial advocacy to other attorneys.


In law school, I worked as an editor for the Journal of Law and Inequality, represented low-income individuals in disputes with their employers, helped a Guatemalan torture victim seek asylum in the United States, and researched school and housing segregation for the Institute on Race and Poverty. After law school, I served as a law clerk to the Honorable Judge Joan N. Ericksen in the federal district court of Minnesota and to Justices Alan Page, Helen Meyer, and Sam Hanson in the Minnesota Supreme Court.

Whip-smart, tenacious, compassionate and just a great lawyer!
Luke and his team (especially Ann O'Neil) went above and beyond to support my mom and our family through a lawsuit that the defendants dragged on for much longer than we thought was possible. Throughout it all, Luke regularly kept us informed, made sure to explain the issues in plain terms, patiently answered our questions, and handled our emotional displays (when things looked dire) with compassion and professionalism. He made sure to be realistic about setting our expectations, but at the same time was so tenacious that we never doubted that he was doing his utmost to keep the case moving forward. We have complete confident in his skills as a lawyer and his genuineness as a person. Because of Luke, our case was concluded successfully and exceeded our expectations.

Nothing but the best
Lucas is exemplary bringing so much to the table. As my defense attorney, he was able to serve justice and get the case dismissed. Years later goes completely out of his way providing me with legal information I requested. A real attribute to anyone who uses his services.
