Someone I'll Always Call for Advice
I've worked with Michelle for a couple years now and she is someone I'll always call for advice and go back to when needed. She's a great lawyer and an even better person!
Amazing Legal Advice
Michelle Olsen is a fabulous person. She was incredibly professional and gave some amazing legal advice. I would 100% recommend her to everyone!
I had never needed a lawyer before, so was a bit overwhelmed with the process. Not only did Jake and his team win my case, they made it effortless for me. I highly recommend!
I told Jacob Birkholz what I wanted before filing a civil lawsuit. Jacob negotiated a settlement above and beyond what I was hoping for. I was extremely happy, and I never had to go to court
On Top of Their Game
I am very impressed with the professionalism, motivation and determination that I’ve witnessed from Jake, Nicole, Amy and the rest of the team. I’ve been living out of state for the 4 years and I was somehow accused of some serious allegations that took place in Nicollet/Blue Earth County when I’ve been living about 1,214.6 miles away from Mankato, Minnesota for the last 4 years. Jake and his team went to work gathering intelligence on the accuser and I provided receipts, bank statements, apartment and house leases and other forms of proof. I’m very pleased with the complete dismissal of the OFP all due to their hard work and dedication. I will use them for any other legal issues that may arise in Minnesota while I am living here 1,214.6 miles away from Mankato. I would highly recommend Jake and his team to all my friends and family they are truly on top of their game and please keep up the hard work. I am completely satisfied with the services that I’ve received from these wonderful people.
Found An Attorney That Actually Listened!
Michelle Olsen is very professional and a fantastic attorney and would recommend her to anyone. She took on my case kind of last minute and worked with me to determine the best schedule for my daughter to have parenting time in California with her father. She respected my wishes in what I thought would be best and came up with a schedule that became in my favor! After 5 years of fighting for what was best for my child I finally had found an attorney that actually listened and nailed it during court. Highly highly recommended! Thank you Michelle again!
All Around Amazing
I cannot say enough great things about Taliesen Burrows! He responds quickly, he has great insights, and is just all around amazing. Thank you to the entire Birkholz team and Taliesen!

I Always Felt Like We Were In Good Hands
Michelle Olsen is a fantastic attorney she listens to your issues and works on getting the best outcome for your problem. Never felt like I was not informed of the progress of the case and what direction it was going. Michelle is not afraid to tell you if you need to rethink what you want your outcome to be or to encourage you to stand up for yourself and try to get what you want out of your situation. I always felt like we were in good hands and had someone on our side to try to get the best outcome of a hard situation. Thank you for all of your help and understanding of the issues we needed help with. I would recommend Michelle Olson and her firm to anyone.
Michelle Olsen is a fantastic attorney and I would recommend her to anyone! She took my case and managed to secure the best possible result. She answered all of my questions and I felt like I was in good hands the entire time.
Beyond Thankful and Grateful
There will always come where we get trapped with problems we never thought we would ever have. I was trapped with my own a couple months ago, and there was not a single hope to it. All I had was my faith, and my lawyers hand. After a while, all came to an end, Dan Birkholz, and Zachary Webster did their amazing legal work with passion, dedication, and most of all, with pure altruism! I don’t know how to thank you enough for representing me by bringing the best possible outcome on my behalf. I am beyond thankful and grateful.
Worth Every Dollar
Birkholz & Associates are very professional and empathetic for their clients situation. Jake has a tremendous amount of experience that makes every dollar you pay in fees is worth it. I recommend this firm to meet all a person's needs.
These Guys Were Amazing!
Do you share a child with a narcissist? Do you need help sorting through the lies, thrown around about you, by said narcissist? Not sure how to handle a parenting time dispute...? Call Jake Birkholz and his team then!! These guys were amazing. Jake dominated in court, sniffing out any non-truths delivered by the opposing party. Jake had a fine way of getting under the skin of the opposing party, making them break "character" which allowed the court to see the real truths in this parenting time matter. Jake was very knowledgeable in this whole ordeal and was able to give suggestions that would benefit me and my family. He was able to coach me on what to expect at our hearing, he gave me pointers on how the opposing party's counsel operated. His guidance help me through this very stressful situation, smoothly. I worked with Michelle as well. She helped with some portions of this case, since it was a bit, and her knowledge and work done was also amazing. She put together a discovery on my behalf, and the way she put it together was intimidating, but in a very good way. I also had the chance to work with Nicole, she was very awesome and knowledgeable as well. She put my scattered thoughts into a meaningful and organized manor for this case. I would 100% recommend I mean, we freaking won!!! Thank you guys so much!!!!!
I would recommend her HANDS DOWN
Michelle Olsen and all others with Birkholz have been incredible to work with and I would recommend her HANDS DOWN to any father looking to foster a relationship with their child or children. She always kept me in the loop and I was never left wondering what was going on, she was understanding and quick to respond anytime I had a question as well. It is stressful enough starting the process not knowing how things will turn out but Michelle and all involved made it that much less through it and well after.
Highly Recommend Michelle
Michelle Olsen is an excellent attorney, and I am so glad we found her. I met her while she was working with one of my siblings and was quite impressed. When we needed an attorney for matters, Michelle was who we turned to. Since the first time I saw her argue a case, I was amazed by her skills, knowledge of the law, and how well she represents her clients. She is brilliant, knowledgeable, professional, compassionate, and extremely responsive. We appreciate her straightforwardness and honesty. She shares information in a way that's easy to understand and does so with kindness and empathy. She definitely has her client's best interest in mind and has their back. We highly recommend Michelle.
Could Not Have Asked For A Better Lawyer
I will always recommend Jake to anybody who is need of a great lawyer. He was so professional every step of the way; his confidence and performance is mesmerizing to say the least. He took the time to explain everything to me and made me feel at ease throughout the whole process. I could not have asked for a better lawyer and I will be forever thankful to him n his team.
Great experience with Dan and the staff!!!
