Top 25 Minnesota
Veteran Owned


Our law office has represented individuals who have been injured through no fault of their own for over 70 years. We do not have television advertisements or billboards; our clients are our advertisement. Most of our cases are settled with insurance companies or other parties. We are always well prepared before we start settlement negotiations which helps us receive the best settlements for our clients.

We understand you have been injured and it has altered your life physically and emotionally. We also understand you may not have worked with an attorney before and with that understanding we take each case with a great deal of care and compassion.

We review and accept cases in all area of Minnesota and Western Wisconsin, including, but not limited to, automobile crashes, watercraft and aircraft accidents, all-terrain vehicles accidents, slip, trip and fall accidents, school injuries, work related injuries, bicycle accidents, dog bites, dog fright (when the dog did not bite you but was so aggressive that it caused injury), dramshop claims, individuals injured by electrocution, burns, products harmful to individuals, and in the most terrible instances we represent families after a death of a loved one caused by negligence.

We have a very competent caring staff to assist you together with our attorneys. We have seven metro locations to service you. Our primary office is in Mendota Heights. We are an experienced law firm and offer free consultations and reviews of your case.
