Fair treatment under the law is what everyone should have a right to expect. Yet, when serious wrongdoing harms one of us in the public, and lawyers line up on both sides, justice can be hard to come by.
Our law firm works to ensure the people of our communities get the fair treatment they deserve. When serious misconduct occurs, we're the lawyers who stand firmly on the side of everyday people. "We will fight, every day, for people who have been wronged, and for people in need. We will fight for fairness and against injustice. We will do what's right." We're the lawyers who work to make sure an injured member of the public is treated fairly. We're the lawyers who fight back against insurance corporations when they ignore the rights of everyday people. We're the lawyers who stand up for the rights of abuse victims and help hold their perpetrators accountable. Record-Setting Verdicts Notably, our attorneys have received statewide recognition as a result of having secured some of the most significant and record-setting damages recoveries in the state of Minnesota. For example, Michael Hall, III's $10.5 million dollar verdict, listed above, is the largest jury verdict ever recorded in Stearns County Minnesota (Minnesota's Seventh Judicial District - St. Cloud, MN). Further, Michael Hall III's recent $798,000.00 jury verdict, also listed above, has been recognized as one of the largest whiplash injury verdicts in Minnesota state history.

Defendants should be held accountable when their wrongful conduct has caused injury. And, when people from the community are injured, they should be treated fairly under the law. Our attorneys are experts at making sure our clients receive a, full, fair and just result. Obtaining fair compensation in a personal injury matter typically requires negotiation and/or litigation. After an injury occurs, defendants and their insurance companies will often do everything they can to avoid paying fair compensation for the injuries they have caused. They know who is represented and who is not, and they know which law firms are willing to go to trial for their clients and which are not. Facing the defense alone and without the help of an expert legal team is perilous. If a case cannot be resolved through negotiation, our lawyers have the experience and expertise to try your case before a jury of your peers. Our attorneys guide you through the twists and turns of the legal process and make sure at-fault defendants meet their responsibility by paying full, fair compensation.
