Michelle came into my case and took all my stress away. Her and Danielle did such a great job keeping me informed about my case. I could talk to Michelle about anything and know I would get honest forward answers. Even when she was on vacation Danielle her paralegal was right there to help me get threw the hard times also. They were such a great team. I truly apprecaite them both so much!!

Jake performed eloquently on a case that was destined to tear our close family apart. He led us professionally through a 2 year battle and the complicated maze of the criminal justice system in Minnesota. The results were that our Brother was completely acquitted of all three counts against him. Jake lifted the tremendous burden of these charges off of our shoulders. We will be eternally grateful to him and his family for all the extra, extra hours he spent with us, which I have no doubt, took valuable time away from his family. Thank you Jake for choosing to be an attorney.

Taliesen and everyone I worked with made the probate process straight forward. I knew nothing about probate before starting this process, but Taliesen explained everything, communicated in a timely manner, and answered all of my questions. I definitely recommend Birkholz & Associates for probate.
