Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my firm. Professionally, I am a knowledgeable business attorney with a wide range of experience in advising small, medium, and large closely-held businesses on structure, operations, and transition (whether sale or succession) with an emphasis on assisting clients in maximizing and retaining their wealth over multiple generations.  I am licensed in Minnesota, North Dakota and Oklahoma.

Personally, I have volunteered for many years at a number of organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Youth Baseball, and Boy Scouts. I am pleased to support other organizations such as Legal Aid, Children’s Defense Fund, Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MOCA), American Cancer Society, Smile Train, American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Diabetes Association, Special Olympics, Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, Audobon Society and others.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet you to see if I can assist you.  I offer a free thirty-minute consultation to prospective clients so I can understand their needs and goals.  I hope to hear from you.
