Honesty, knowledge and dedication are invaluable attributes of an attorney. These are the qualities I have provided to my clients since I started practicing at Meshbesher & Associates 13 years ago. Success in the criminal field is often a matter of degree. If your lawyer doesn’t understand the law, won’t put in the time and effort to prepare your case for a defense or can’t be candid with you in the course of the relationship – you’ve probably chosen the wrong person to represent you.
I am originally from Lincoln, Nebraska. I earned a Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, with minors in philosophy, history and political science. In my off-time I coached and judged high school policy debate. I graduated in 1998, moved to Minnesota and started work at Allina Health Systems as their Conference Center Coordinator. I was accepted by William Mitchell College of Law in 2000, began working as a law clerk for Meshbesher & Associates in 2001 and graduated with my JD in 2003. I have been practicing here ever since.
Since joining this firm as an associate, I have handled and assisted hundreds of criminal cases across the entire spectrum of the law – from traffic tickets to homicides in state and federal court – in Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Iowa and Kansas at the trial court and appellate court levels. If you are in trouble and would like to speak with me about your case, I am happy to talk with you.
