It’s hard to believe that 2017 is almost wrapping up. Our word of the year for 2017 was gratitude, and we were grateful for the abundance of new and returning clients, challenging work, fun events and hard-fought victories.

Some of the highlights included trying a number of cases, including obtaining a full defense verdict on one client’s employment claims.

October marked the Firm’s 3rd anniversary .

The Firm also earned its share of kudos. Firm founder Dawn Van Tassel was named for the fourth year in a row to Minnesota’s list of SuperLawyers ™. And in July, the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota awarded the firm an “A-plus” rating.

But perhaps one of the greatest moments of the year was our client-appreciation event. Our clients, friends and colleagues (and their daughters, grand-daughters, nieces and mentees) enjoyed an evening out at a Lynx game, including participating in a free-throw shoot afterwards. As part of the event, the Firm donated a substantial number of tickets to the Lynx’s Fastbreak Foundation, serving at-risk youth and military families.

We are looking forward to even bigger and better things in 2018! Happy new year!
