We are Open for Business and We’ll Keep You Safe During the COVID-19 Crisis

As is the case with people around the world, the COVID-19 crisis has forced us to change many aspects of our lives including how we socialize, how we communicate, and how we practice law. While these changes are challenging and necessary, my law office has made immediate changes to ensure your safety as a client.  The health and safety of the public and our clients is our highest priority, and these changes are being made with those values first in mind. I intend to continue delivering the highest quality legal services that my clients have come to rely on and I appreciate your patience as we work to enact new office policies and procedures to address the immediate needs brought about by COVID-19.  The Minnesota Governor’s Executive Order specifies that lawyers like me are considered “essential legal service providers” and are exempt from the stay-at-home restrictions imposed on the general public.  Even so, like you I am trying my very best to maintain complete social distance and honor the letter and spirit of the quarantine to help keep all of us safe.

Experience

 

I have decades of federal consumer rights litigation experience since 1996.  There is no tougher place in the world to litigate than in United States Federal District Court.  You'll be glad that your lawyer has both the knowledge of the Court, and the success to back it up.

 

Innovation

 

I've professionally trained thousands lawyers all over the country on how to sue debt collectors.  I gather all of the best ideas from my legal seminars and bring them back to my law practice.  Because I've taught thousands of lawyers in all 50 States, my reputation is second-to-none.

 

Technology

 

I run an all digital, paperless, law office.  I can instantly access any document that has ever been created in your legal file from a secure cloud.  Quickly and efficiently.  Paper is scanned, optically-character-recognized and fully word-searchable.  That makes me effective for you and tough for our opponents.

Communication

 

As a consumer lawyer, I pride myself in answering my own phone and email.  If I'm available to talk, we will talk.  Email is always a great way for you to reach me and I make every effort to get back to you in 24 hours or less.  I don't avoid clients.  I serve them.
