I am able to draw on my experience to help you.
After law school, I clerked for a year for a Minnesota Supreme Court justice – M. Jeanne Coyne. And then I clerked for two more years for a U.S. District Court judge – Robert G. Renner. Those three years gave me a feel for how much authority and power trial and appellate judges have in making decisions – and where those decisions are vulnerable and can be attacked. Those years gave me a foundation for my work representing clients in a law firm.
I found I loved practicing law. I was an associate and then partner at a large law firm (that no longer exists). And then I was an associate and then partner at a firm focused on municipal law and litigation. Both positions involved working with other lawyers on civil cases. At the administrative level, at the district court, and at the appellate level.
I bring that experience to my work with other lawyers now.
