What Makes Our Firm Unique?

Neither Tom nor Alesia are quite sure how their interests in law began. Each of them simply grew up with a strong desire to help others, and that desire eventually pulled them toward law school.

As far as their practice is concerned, the most important takeaway from Tom and Alesia’s history is that their focus, from day one, has always been on their clients’ well-being. Neither of these attorneys went into the legal profession for the purpose of making as much money as possible or seeking glory in the world of law. They simply wanted to help people. Fortunately for their clients, practicing law was the avenue they chose in order to do it.

Now, decades later, Tom and Alesia’s legal expertise have proven valuable — even life-changing — to so many families in and around Minnesota. If you ask them what their favorite part of their work is, they’ll give you the same answer they would have given when they started practicing law: fighting for good people.


“Alesia & I have always been ‘fight for what's right’ kind of people. We both get that from our parents. When we see an insurance company pushing a client around, we automatically want to step in and help." -Tom
A Tag-Team Approach

Our clients like to refer to Tom and Alesia as a “two for one” deal because they get the full support of both attorneys. This means you have two attorneys you can talk to and two attorneys reviewing and working on your case

Experience and Professionalism

Our clients’ thanks is enough to tell us we’re doing our job well, but awards can be telling, too. We’re proud to say that we’ve received an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau since 2007.

Genuine, Good People

It’s very important to have a knowledgeable legal team on your side, but it’s also important to have a team that cares. At our firm, you’ll find that our attorneys meet both criteria.

In Case You’re Wondering How Payment Works...

We understand how overwhelming it can feel to imagine paying a legal bill on top of everything else you’re going through. That’s why we do not charge for initial conversations or to request and review your entire file from the insurance company, which you are entitled to receive without charge under ERISA.

When we look at your insurance file, we will determine whether we are the best firm to help you on a contingent fee basis. A contingent fee means that we do not receive any payment if no benefits are obtained through our efforts. If, after looking through your insurance file, we determine that we cannot handle your claim on a contingent fee basis, you owe us nothing.

If you’re still concerned about financing, please feel free to call and ask questions. We’ll explain how the process works and walk you through the retainer agreement, which explains our fees in detail, before asking you to sign a thing.

An Experienced Team You Can Trust

If you’re facing a legal concern that involves a long-term disability or injury, it’s best to take immediate action. The sooner you reach out, the sooner we can help. Should you choose to work with us, not only will you get our experience and knowledge on your side, we will treat you with the respect the insurance company didn’t.
