Minnesota litigator, guardianship/conservatorship and trust disputes

Stacy has significant experience representing families in guardianship / conservatorship cases as well as in probate matters, trust disputes, will contests, and family or closely held business disputes.  Whether you are a fiduciary (guardian/conservator, trustee, personal representative, partner, shareholder), a Person Subject to Guardianship/Conservatorship, a family member concerned about a loved one who may lack capacity due to illness or age, a beneficiary of a trust or a will, or an individual involved in a dispute arising out of a family or closely held business, Stacy will advise you to secure the best outcome.   

Stacy currently serves on the Hennepin County panel of Court-appointed attorneys, representing respondents involved in guardianship/ conservatorship cases. 

Stacy has first-chaired 25 jury trials and more than 15 contested bench trials during her legal career. She has been involved in several high-profile complex civil litigation cases, including the Tom Petters civil litigation cases and civil litigation related to the Ivy Hotel and condominium project in downtown Minneapolis.  But no client is too small - what Stacy truly loves is using her legal training and expertise to help vulnerable adults (and families) through tough times.

Stacy earned her law degree from the University of Iowa College of Law in 1996, where she was a member of the Iowa Law Review. She graduated from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa with a degree in political science in 1992.

Stacy has been named a Rising Star by Minnesota Law & Politics magazine.  She has presented to legal associations in the Twin Cities and has been published in legal publications.

In her free time, Stacy enjoys CrossFit and volunteering. For more than 10 years, Stacy served in volunteer fundraising and event planning roles for animal rescue organizations and volunteered for the PROP Shop in Eden Prairie.  In the past, Stacy volunteered for English Rose Suites, Feed My Starving Children, and Habitat for Humanity, and was a Big Sister for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities.
