 I love solving problems.  I decided to become a lawyer to help people solve their problems and to help them understand how the law affects their lives.  Being a general practice attorney is a lot like being a family doctor. We help people through all sorts of challenges life gives to them and help them succeed.


I was born and raised in Duluth. After two years in Idaho as a County Attorney, my wife  and I moved back to Duluth. I love spending time outside whether fishing, golfing, mountain biking, or running.  I have served on many community boards and organizations ranging from youth sports to the arts.  


In my almost 20 years of practice I have handled hundreds of criminal cases ranging from serious offenses such as murder to less serious offenses such as DWIs and other traffic violations.  During this time I have represented hundreds of clients in divorce and child cases.  I also have experience representing clients in personal injury, estate planning, real estate,  business and tort cases.

Throughout my life I have asked questions.  If the right questions are not asked correct choices cannot be made.  When someone comes to me with a problem I know what questions to ask to help guide that person to make the correct choice.


I was born and raised in Proctor, Minnesota.  My wife and I live in Duluth, Minnesota and have raised two children and helped raise five grandsons.  I enjoy running, golfing and traveling around the the United States with my wife.


In my  over 40 years of practice (including 5 years as the City Attorney for Proctor, MN) I have handled hundreds of cases including family law, estate and probate planning, real estate, personal injury, business and tort cases.
