The Meshbesher Legacy: Pursuing Justice For More Than 100 Years

In Minnesota, the Meshbesher name has been synonymous with the tenacious pursuit of justice for more than a century. In fact, since 1909 when the Supreme Court of Minnesota sided with injured Russian immigrant Jacob Meshbesher in a case involving unsafe cooking oil, the Meshbesher family has been a driving force in the Minnesota legal community - a legacy continued when Jacob's son Simon graduated from St. Paul College of Law in 1919.However, Simon was not the last Meshbesher to take up the noble profession of law. Indeed, over the last 100 years, the Meshbesher legacy in Minnesota has remained unbroken thanks to several lawyers in the family. Even today, this legacy persists with Jacob's great-grandson, attorney Steve Meshbesher.
