I am thrilled to be a member of the Board of Directors of Hold Your Horses as I believe my skill set will be helpful to advancing the cause of this non-profit entity.
I grew up in North Dakota and, after moving to Minnesota, graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School with a J.D. summa cum laude. I am admitted to practice law in all Courts of the State of Minnesota, the United States Supreme Court and the federal courts for Minnesota and the 8th Circuit. I have been fortunate to have worked for the same law firm, Henson & Efron, PA, for my entire legal career. I began as the sixth person in a six-person firm, and now am the most senior active attorney in the firm of 33 attorneys. In my career, I have been honored by being selected as one of Minnesota’s top 10 Super Lawyers in 2005, 2009-2017 and 2019-2021. I have also been listed as one of the Best Lawyers in America from 1995-2022. In 2019 I was honored by being selected as a Minnesota Icon in the practice of law, and am still the first and only family law attorney inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers, a group comprising less than 1 % of the attorneys in Minnesota who are the very best at the trial bar.
I have worked with other 50l(c)(3) organizations including the Jade Foundation, University of Minnesota Law School and Edina Morningside Community Church.
I am married and have two adult sons, and two beautiful grandchildren.
