Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
In a case of a 28 year marriage where I represented the wife, in addition to numerous issues including property settlement, child support, etc., the main issue was one relating to spousal maintenance. At the conclusion of the trial, the trial judge only ordered temporary spousal maintenance for a few years. I brought a motion to ask the court to amend the order and the court did amend the same, making the spousal maintenance award of $2,400 per month permanently. The case was appealed to the Court of Appeals by the husband's attorney, where the wife prevailed. The husband's attorney then requested the review by the Supreme Court in the State of Minnesota and the Supreme Court denied their request, and, therefore, the wife now has an Order of permanent spousal maintenance.

How did you build a successful practice?
a. I work very, very hard and still do, putting my client's interests first.
b. I joined almost every civic organization that I could.
c. I am always prepared, not only for a trial, depositions, etc., but know my client's file, their personalities, important issues for them, and never treat them like a number.
d. I do a lot of presenting at seminars for fellow attorneys and judges, and I also do a lot of publishing of legal articles in the area of Family Law.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
One who works hard, keeps up with the changing laws, someone with experience, and most of all someone who really cares about the best interests and welfare of their clients as opposed to themselves.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Knowing your judges, magistrates, and referees, as well as the opposing attorneys is key to any attorney's success in family law.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
We have a really experienced paralegal who generally takes or makes the first phone call and who provides significant free information before the client ever comes into the office.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
Our office has a sophisticated "checklist" which pretty much covers a gamut of all issues that are important to any potential client, and the paralegal in our office obtains all that information before the client ever comes in to see an attorney.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I am probably one of the most experienced attorneys in our area, having practiced for over 47 years. I am one of only 100 attorneys in the United States that have been accepted into the American College of Family Trial Lawyers. Because of my publications and significant seminar teachings of judges, referees, and attorneys, I believe I am quite well-known for my knowledge and experience, and also for my integrity and honesty with the court and opposing counsel.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
I know it sounds trite, but the most rewarding aspect of my job is helping people achieve fair and reasonable results for themselves and their families.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
I was born and raised on a farm, and I still live on a farm in Minnesota, with a large ranch in New Mexico as well. In addition, I love to golf.

Are you involved in your community?
Yes, I have been involved in the community significantly over the years and have received numerous awards and recognition, including King of the St. Paul Winter Carnival. It is an organization that selects a leader from the business community every year to preside over a pageantry that has outreach, not only in St. Paul, but also throughout the state of Minnesota, United States, and Canada.
