Discrimination and Employment Law

I represent clients in a wide range of civil rights and employment law cases, involving claims of discrimination based upon age, disability, sex, pregnancy, race, national origin, as well as cases involving wrongful termination, breach of contract, change of control, severance, noncompetition, trade secret, harassment and retaliation issues. I have settled dozens of such cases, including a claim of breach of change in control agreement for more than $1,000,000.


Criminal Defense

For over 20 years I have successfully represented individuals charged with felonies and misdemeanors in federal and state courts throughout Minnesota.

There are many examples where an innocent person is exonerated, but sadly, there are many more examples where an innocent person is incarcerated. We feel passionately that if one single innocent person is incarcerated unjustly, it's too many. Come to us and we will aggressively defend you.
