Shannon C. Carey - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyJune 17, 2014

Lawyers are not shy when it comes to talking about their accomplishments. When interviewing a lawyer, you may hear about the million-dollar verdicts they won or the honors and awards they received. These are nice credentials to have and perhaps favorable indicators of the lawyer’s ability but don’t base your decision solely on these. Be a little skeptical.

How to Select an Attorney - Tip #3

Shannon C. Carey - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyJune 04, 2014

Listen carefully to the lawyer: Does the lawyer make things easy to understand, or does she talk over your head using legal-ease? If you don’t understand what she’s saying, don’t blame yourself for not being well-versed in the law. It’s the trial lawyer’s job to communicate well; to make the complex simple; and to make things crystal clear for a jury.

Lake Street fire shows landlords need safety education

Minnesota Lawyer, by Barbara JonesMarch 06, 2014

The main issue is a general lack of fire-safety education for building owners.

Six people died in April 2010 from breathing carbon monoxide as their home burned down around them. The building had a pub on the lower floor and six apartments above it. The fire inspectors hadn't been in the residences for 16 years.

Since I thought these were some great tips I decided I would pass them on to you.

Eric W. Beyer helped me through a very difficult time and his professionalism, advice and results from an injury were highly respected. Amidst the personal part of getting myself back to health, his guidance when life was blurry was so appreciated. He listened and then put forth my options honestly and directly which I totally appreciated!

 Was totally satisfied with his hard work and dedication to help me. I'd highly recommend him. Thank you Eric!

Chris and Amy Boys

We worked with Art and his team on a personal injury case. We could not have been more pleased with the result. Art and his team were both professional and personable, and were a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Art and his team if you find yourself in this type of situation.

Daunne Schaller

I was seriously injured in a car accident on my wedding night and went to SiebenCarey. Being involved in an accident is never fun. The folks at SiebenCarey got us thru the event helping us get on with our lives. They were up front and honest. We knew we could trust them. It’s clear to me why Art has been recognized as a Best Lawyer in America and Super Lawyer for 12 years running. Now anytime I know someone who was involved in an accident I refer them to SiebenCarey.

Deb Colombe

I was involved in a car accident that was complicated at best. God blessed with me Eric Beyer as my attorney. Although it was a long drawn out process between the two insurance companies, Eric was not only my attorney, he was my rock.

Eric is one of the most ethical people I have ever met in my lifetime. He was a constant source of not only information, but of comfort throughout the whole process. I never doubted for one moment that Eric did not have my best interest at heart. He took every word I said seriously and did what he had to do. If I ever have the misfortune of another injury like this, I would go to no one other than Eric Beyer. I will never in my lifetime be able to thank Eric enough or let him know how much I respect him and what a comfort he was and has continued to be for me. God Bless you Eric Beyer.

Jesse Bukal

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

Teresa Zweber

I retained Robert Brabbit in 2011 for a workmans comp case. I have been extremely pleased with him as my attorney. He won the first part of my case with ease, he has great knowledge and professionalism and am anxious to see the end results of my settlement. I would recommend him highly and he won against a major retail store.

Morgan Petoletti

My husband had an amazing experience with this firm. They listened and took the time to understand our case.

Sheryl Nixon

Jeff Sieben was the first one I talked to about my injury. I was not sure if there was even a case. But as the months went by and my pain got worse, the seriousness of the injury became apparent. Jeff took on the case and put me at ease about the medical bills and calls. He was professional in his attitude while being compassionate to my situation. I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so. 

Ashlyn Wall

They were able to work with me while I was away for school and much appreciated the help. I would highly recommend them!

Adele Thompson
I would like to express my gratitude for the excellent assistance in processing my legal action necessary due to a car accident. In particular Matthew Steinbrink exceeded my expectations regarding all the necessary paperwork and negotiating on my behalf. I would not hesitate to recommend SiebenCarey in the future.
