Family Law

Attorney License Certified Rescue Diver ;)

Collaborative law helps families resolve their legal issues with less emotional and financial cost. Who wants to spend hard earned money on attorney fees, when there are so many other important demands on family finances? As a litigator, I can say that collaborative law costs far less than the traditional litigation method. As a mediator, I can also say that collaborative law offers legal advice at your elbow, something that usually isn't present in the mediation setting. Collaborative law is a powerful blend of the attorney providing guidance and education to the client, while the client maintains full control and direction of the case. Basically, we guide but you decide! I recommend this approach whenever possible to friends and family that are facing potential legal issues. We have offices conveniently located in Woodbury and Edina. I would welcome the opportunity to work with you on your case. I have been a member of the Collaborative Law Institute since 1998. The Institute has four committees. I was the former Chair of its Membership Committee. I was also a member of the Strategic Planning Committee that developed the Insitute's current Strategic Plan. That's all rather boring though, if you're not a member of the Institute! What's important to potential clients is that I am really committed to helping clients use the collaborative process whenever possible. There's a lot of newcomers to collaborative law, which is exciting. Yet, experience in using the collaborative model is exceptionally helpful to obtaining great results for clients. I've got a solid, demonstrated track record of getting cases done quickly and fairly. I look forward to the chance to work with you!

I started out undergraduate studies in a special honors program at the Institute of Technology at the University of Minnesota, with an engineering focus. I admit I was pretty bored by the time I finished calc II, and transferred to the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. I graduated with honors. I find my business training particularly helpful in analyzi
