Well, I grew up in Bloomington, Minnesota, and attended Jefferson. My parents divorced when I was growing up, and I have that perspective of knowing what it’s like to go through a divorce as one of the kids. After high school, I got a football scholarship and that allowed me to go to Mankato State, where I got my undergrad degree. I went to law school in Indiana, finished up my law school, and got immediately back to Minnesota, which is where I wanted to be, got in with a small firm and rather quickly moved into my own practice and did things the way that I wanted them to be done. Along the way, I learned a lot of valuable information that assisted me in creating my law firm and having the type of representation for people that I wanted to be able to provide.
