Attorney Profile

Real GoodYou can call me Joe.   I treat all my clients like I would my mom or my brother.

The firm focuses primarily on Minnesota probates and estate administration.

“I take pride in providing exceptional, client-focused legal services.”

If I’m not meeting that goal, I’m doing something wrong.

Your Minnesota Probate Lawyer

I practice in the legal fields of estate planning, and probate.  I also attend Continuing Legal Education, I write articles, I blog, and I read as much as I can about my legal practice areas.  I focus on these areas because I want to be the best in my field at them.

When not working as an attorney, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two sons.

I am also an avid fishermen, amateur guitar player, and lover of the outdoors.  If you don’t need a lawyer, but want somebody to go fishing with, give me a call and I won’t charge you for it.
