Minnesota Sexual Abuse Attorneys



Minnesota Sexual Abuse Attorneys

When do I need a professional Minnesota Sexual Abuse Attorney? A rape or sexual assault is among the most horrifying and traumatic experiences a person may ever have to go through. In an ideal world, the police are able to arrest the rapist or abuser, and prosecutors are able to obtain a conviction and an appropriate criminal sentence against the offender. But even when an appropriate criminal conviction occurs and some measure of justice and satisfaction is given to the victim, often times it is not enough. Sexual abuse victims may face hospital bills and other medical expenses because of the assault, and may have additional expenses in dealing with the emotional trauma that lingers long after the attack. In these cases, the attorneys at our firm help victims fight back against their abusers and obtain more appropriate compensation to help them deal with the expenses brought on by the criminal act.

Meet Our Minnesota Personal Injury Attorney – Katherine A. Brown Holmen:


Katherine Brown Holmen

Katherine grew up in Minnesota and has lived there for most of her life. However, she did attend the University of North Dakota School of Law; where she was a dedicated student who graduated and passed the Minnesota Bar Examination to become a lawyer by the age of 24.

Outside of the office she is a keen community worker, volunteering at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, working as a Certified U.S.A. Gymnastic Trampoline and Tumbling Judge, and a Ramsey County Conciliation Court Referee.

As a result, she is a strong advocate for people who have suffered injuries because of another person’s negligence and is always keen to fight for justice on their behalf.
