Jim Lindell has specialized in civil litigation during his entire career and is certified as a Civil Trial Specialist by the Minnesota State Bar Association. Mr. Lindell has been voted a Super Lawyer® in the areas of personal injury and workers' compensation in annual polls of Minnesota lawyers conducted by Minnesota Law & Politics and Mpls/St. Paul magazine. Jim was invited to membership in the American Society of Legal Advocates, and in 2012 was named Attorney of the Year by The Minnesota Lawyer. He practices in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Jim is a native of Litchfield, Minnesota. Contributing to his effectiveness in his practice is his broad scope of work experience, including:

United States Army, 1st Lt. 1966-1969
Management positions in federal and state government
Staff aide to the governor of Minnesota
Construction
Firefighting (smoke jumping) for the U.S. Forest Service
Life-long interest in flying, private pilot license since 1985.
Mr. Lindell is highly regarded by both clients and fellow attorneys. He enjoys a busy workers' compensation and personal injury practice and receives numerous referrals of those cases from attorneys in other specialties. He is active in the Academy of Certified Trial Lawyers of Minnesota and has served as a board member, officer and dean of that organization. Lindell is rated "a.v." by Martindale Hubble - the highest rating of competence and ethics available. He is also a qualified neutral arbitrator and mediator.

When Jim is not practicing law, he is challenging himself anew. Working on his Wisconsin cabin (which he built from the ground up with his dad), learning to speak Russian, and learning to play the piano are his most recent endeavors.

Besides the firm's main office in downtown Minneapolis, Jim maintains an office at his lake home in Webb Lake, Wisconsin.
