Whether working with business or individuals, Carol brings a formidable array of talents to the litigation practice group. They include a thorough knowledge of the law, strong analytical skills, and a deep commitment to advocating for her clients and protecting their interests in areas including:
- Business litigation
- Banking & finance
- Mortgage loan repurchases and indemnification litigation
- Personal injury and medical malpractice
“No two cases are alike,” she explains. “As a litigator I focus on a wide variety of legal issues for clients including businesses, organizations and individuals, all of whom require strategies tailored to their unique needs. Developing ethically grounded solutions that not only meet my clients’ needs but exceed their expectations is tremendously satisfying.”
Carol derives satisfaction from other quarters as well. She believes that attorneys have a moral responsibility to use their skills for the benefit of others. She puts that obligation into action as Chair of the City of Robbinsdale Human Rights Commission, which helps promote the goals of equal human rights, and also provides pro bono legal work for victims of domestic violence.
In recognition of her work for clients and the larger community, Carol has been named both a “Rising Star” and “Up & Coming Attorney” multiple times.
