Welcome to Minnesota's Family Lawyer, where analysis and reasoning is used to solve problems, generate options and create a positive atmosphere
for a settlement. I am a family law attorney and a mediator. I live and work in Chanhassen, Minnesota, and practice law in the Twin Cities metro area. I see my role as that of a "guide" through the legal system - educating my clients about
their legal rights and obligations, and assisting them in formulating a plan based on the facts of their particular family situation.
I am affordable and will work hard for you. Minnesota residents can call for a free half hour consultation. Please contact me about collaborative law. Call me at 866-935-8230.
I believe in the importance of the family, and the need for children to have access to both parents. Divorce should be considered only as a last resort, and should never be an option until after a couple has sought counseling to try to resolve their conflicts, either through their pastor, a marriage counselor, or other trained professional.
Divorce need not sever family relationships. As a trained Collaborative1 lawyer, Collaborative Team2 lawyer and mediator, I am able to assist individuals who want to resolve their family conflicts with respect and fairness, setting the stage for on-going communication. I have found that peaceful settlements can be attained by utilizing (neutral) experts hired by the agreement of both parties, when needed. Attaining agreement by negotiation is both financially and emotionally "cost effective". Please see the newspaper article regarding Collaborative Divorce; provided courtesy Chanhassen Villager.
