For more than 35 years, I have had a singular focus in my law practice: To help individuals in the Twin Cities and throughout central Minnesota with their most pressing family law matters. In this time, I have become familiar with the local communities, and developed the skills needed to find resolutions in even the most highly contested disputes.
The longer a legal process goes on, the more stressful — and more expensive — it will be. I understand. And I understand that, in most circumstances, individuals turn to a lawyer only when they absolutely must. As such, I am dedicated to settling concerns in an efficient, amicable manner, and enabling my clients to return their attention to other parts of their lives.
A Legacy Of Service In Central Minnesota
I offer my clients experienced counsel in a range of personal legal matters. Family law is an area where one's most important relationships are often at stake. Especially when children are involved, negotiations can become delicate. I work hard to maintain accord between all parties in family disputes, and to protect my clients' valued relationships. I have helped devise numerous child custody and child support agreements, and to help couples outline fair plans for spousal maintenance.
Over the years I have also developed a core competency in areas where family law and business law intersect. When a divorcing couple has a great deal of assets or wealth, I am able to guide my clients through the proceedings with a minimum of friction or complication. I am skilled in ensuring that assets and businesses are properly appraised, and have a great deal of experience facilitating complex property division agreements. Although I always endeavor to reach a settlement, I have tried many cases in court and will always be ready to litigate on my clients' behalf.
