As a career trial attorney, I have handled some of the most complex criminal cases in Minnesota. During the current landscape across our nation, law enforcement must be equipped with the knowledge and skills to navigate their sworn duties. It is imperative their training is informative, engaging, and focused on a partnership with communities at large. I have spent my career training law enforcement and prosecutors around the country in these times, experience matters.
