Educational Background

I attended the University of North Dakota at Grand Forks. I received my Juris Doctor Degree from the University of North Dakota School of Law in 1965. I was a member of the Board of Editors of the North Dakota Law Review.

Areas of Practice

The primary focus of my practice over the last 33 years has been plaintiffs' serious personal injury and wrongful death cases. I have handled a large number of brain injury cases. The majority of my cases are the result of automobile and truck accidents. I also work in the area of medical malpractice, and with people who are injured as a result of defective products. Most of my cases involve very serious injuries. I also focus on wrongful death cases, one in particular, wrongful deaths of children.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
