Currently, my practice consists of a blend of handling motor vehicle litigation, including third party liability, UM/UIM and rental law, general liability claims, ADR, products liability, professional liability, dram shop and commercial litigation. I was certified as a Civil Trial Specialist by the MSBA in 1999 and re-certified in 2004 and 2011 and am a member of ABOTA. I have extensive jury trial experience and have served as an arbitrator and mediator in commercial, contract, personal injury and No-Fault cases over the past 21 years.

I am a strong believer in ADR and work very hard to make the process worthwhile for the parties and counsel. I am on the State of Minnesota’s Roster of ADR Neutral Mediators. I have been named a Super Lawyer© every year since 2005 (named top 100 from 2008 through 2013) and have served on the Blue Ribbon Selection Panel. I was also included in the 2008-2010 Corporate Counsel edition of Super Lawyers© for expertise in Civil Litigation. I am serving my fifth three-year term on the Arthur Chapman Management Board of Directors.
