Attorney Highlights from 2017

Seasons greetings! We wanted to share some announcements of interest related to our firm:

Jennifer A. Williams has joined the firm as an associate attorney. She is licensed in Minnesota and Montana. Before entering private practice, she was a commercial escrow officer for a nationally ranked title insurance company and a judicial staff attorney for the Honorable Karen J. Asphaug in the First Judicial District of Minnesota. Her practice focuses primarily on the areas of real estate; oil and gas; estate planning, wills and probate; criminal law; and mental health law. She also joins Michele Wallace and Peter MacMillan in the firm’s 30 plus year misdemeanor prosecution contract representing the City of Crystal, Minnesota. Jennifer is also a Rule 114 qualified neutral under the Minnesota General Rules of Practice.

Michele Wallace was recognized as the 2017 Volunteer of the Year for Community Mediation & Restorative Services. Michele has put in countless hours to this non-profit community-based mediation service in a variety of areas while continuing her busy practice in our Minneapolis office.

Jennifer Athanases was again recognized as a Five Star Investment Professional in the January 2017 issue of the publication Twin Cities Business and will also be recognized in the 2018 issue for her client services in the area of estate planning. The Five Star Investment Professional Award was given in the category of attorneys in the area of estate planning services. We are very proud that she received this recognition of the excellent services that she continues to provide to our clients.

Peter MacMillan is again helping to coach the Annandale High School Mock Trial Team in addition to his busy legal practice in our Minneapolis and Annandale offices.
