I have a simple mission. Do the best legal work I can, for every person, every single day.
I don't believe in lofty promises or salesman-like tricks. My mentor taught me to practice law the old fashioned way. Listen to your client. Build a case. Attempt to settle. And then, if all else fails, work your tail-off to beat the other side.
If you haven't guessed, I can be a bit blunt. Some people take it personally. You shouldn't. My job is to protect your backside. Anyone who gets in the way will frustrate me -- even if it's you.
I went to school at The University of Iowa Law School. Graduated in a good spot. Worked for big and small firms. I only like representing people.
In 2014, 2015, and 2016, I received Client Distinction / Client Rating awards from Martindale-Hubbell.
I am a member of The National Advocates 2016-2018 Top 100 Lawyers in family law.
In 2016-2018, I was named one of Minnesota's Top 10 attorneys in client satisfaction by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys.
In 2017, I was named a Distinguished Lawyer by the Expert Network.
