Sitting still is not my strong suit. Depending on the time of year, you might find me cruising along the banks of the Mississippi on my semi-classic Honda Shadow, fattening up my passport, courtesy of the countries you still need visas to go to, or even hunting alligators in the bayous outside New Orleans. When I’m not filling my brain with new experiences, I’m filling my laptop with them – or I’m reading about other people’s. I’m an avid writer and reader in my personal life as well as my professional one. Minnesota’s long winters give me the chance to catch up on my more sedentary pursuits.
Looking at life a little differently helps me bring a unique perspective to each case. I want to see the things that another lawyer might not see and make the arguments another lawyer might not think to make. I also bring the much-underappreciated value of good writing to my clients. You won’t see a lot of brief writing on Law & Order, but the outcome on most contested issues is largely determined based on the written submissions. You may have already won or lost long before anyone ever sets foot inside a courtroom.
