Steven J. Meshbesher

Attorney in Minneapolis


The unrelenting pursuit of justice for my clients has been the sole focus of my law practice for 35 years. I work hard for my clients and I have created a law firm of diligent lawyers and administrative staff who believe, as do I, that a positive conclusion in a case results from persistence and skill in the handling of every aspect of a file, as well as the ability to maintain effective communication among all parties.

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1976 with a major in European Cultural History, I earned my J.D. from the Creighton University School of Law in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1980. I learned how to practice law from one of the best criminal defense lawyers in the country, my uncle, Ron Meshbesher, for over eight years before striking out on my own with partners to start a new criminal defense/personal injury firm. Eight years after that, in 1997, I created Meshbesher & Associates with the goal of continuing and enriching my tradition of successful outcomes combined with good, old-fashioned attentive service to my clients.

I now have the privilege, through the multi-talented team of associates at Meshbesher & Associates I have gathered together, to expand upon my legacy of personal service and favorable results. Whether it be a personal injury, wrongful death, civil rights, or criminal defense case, my colleagues and I are prepared to devote the time, attention, and resources to your case that it deserves. We will gladly speak with you to evaluate how we may assist you, your friend, or family member during your difficult time.
