Most, but not all, of my commercial litigation is on behalf of plaintiffs. Nearly
all clients are referred to me by law firms either with conflicts of interest or
who choose not to work on a contingent fee basis, which constitutes a
substantial portion of my practice. Judges and jury members before whom I
have tried cases, and litigation opponents also have referred matters to me.

I have tried approximately 250 cases through conclusion, most of them before
juries, throughout the state of Minnesota.

I have been a guest lecturer at University of Minnesota Law School and William
Mitchell School of Law, and in the current year, University of St. Thomas Law
School, on the subject of legal malpractice. I have also been a lecturer for
Minnesota Continuing Education, for whom in the past two years, I have
lectured on practicing as a sole practitioner.

I have been appointed referee and commissioner by judges of Hennepin
County District Court, and special master by United States District Court for
the District of Minnesota. I am currently serving as a special master in the
distribution of a federal multi-district settlement.
