An impressive accomplishment on its own, but the son of Irish immigrants would be particularly proud today knowing that he started a family tradition of legal service that has stretched through five generations.

An Uncommon Level of Common Sense

Super Lawyers Magazine, By Adam WahlbergJuly 08, 2015

Plenty of attorneys have the law in their blood. But with Jim Carey, one gets a sense he might actually test ABA positive.

The Carey name goes way back in Minnesota, particularly on the Iron Range. Carey’s great-grandfather, after whom he’s named, was a judge in the city of Virginia from early in the century until 1946. Carey’s father, Thomas, practiced insurance defense on the Range before becoming a judge in Hennepin County. His uncle John ran a small firm in Fairfax before coming to SiebenCarey.

For PI firm, short is sweet

Minnesota Lawyer, by Dan HeilmanSeptember 11, 2014

To legal-biz observers of a certain vintage, the area's top personal injury firm will always be Sieben, Grose, Von Holtum and Carey.

Times change, founding partners move on, and the marketplace demands a fresh style of branding. Those factors led to the firm's recent name change to SiebenCarey. The change more accurately reflects the firm's current leadership and provides a name that rolls off the tongue a bit more gracefully.

Jeanne Tondryk

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!

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.

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.

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.

Heidi Johnson

Jeff Montpetit and his team are always there when I needed to ask any questions .They are all working very hard on my claim from my car accident. Thank you all very much..

Jeff Adams

Art and his team have always demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and dedication. As an attorney, I appreciate this quality in a fellow colleague. I am pleased to post this review on behalf of Art.

Casidy Van Puymbrouck

Car accidents are scary, especially when your injury does not go away. I was lost and in need of help. Mr. Beyer took me in and got to the bottom of the problem. When it was all said and done the accident did not cost me anything and I recieved something for the pain and suffering!

Maggie Healy

Having known Jim my entire life as a good family friend, I’ve always admired his ability to make others feel welcomed and excepted in any setting. This is why I didn’t hesitate to chose Jim and SiebenCarey when I needed a personal injury lawyer. He proved to be extremely thorough and professional and he made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire process. I’m only 18 years old so much of the legal process was new to me but Jim was very patient and I felt that he was there with me every step of the way. It’s clear that Jim truly cares about his clients and after my experience with Jim and the whole firm I now understand why SiebenCarey is so widely respected.

Christine Zweber

I have known Mark Olive for many years!  Mark has navigated me through several work related injuries in the world of Workman's Comp(WC) issues since 1987. 

Mark and his team (especially Sharon Hanson) are so amazing...knowledgeable, innovative, persistent, honest, hard-working, informative, great communication skills, organized, kind, caring, accessible, trust-worthy, sensitive to employee's concerns, great listeners, advocates, able to lead workers who are struggling to make sense of a VERY complicated system (WC), and so extremely professional in every way!!  Mark is able to explain even the most mind-boggling legal jargon, information, details, and the 'plan' to an employee in a way that is simply honest and sensible. 

Mark and his team truly work to improve the lives of workers who have been injured on-the-job with integrity, thoroughness, legal thoughtfulness, and perseverance.
  
I will continue to recommend Mark and his team to educational professionals who have been injured on-the-job as well as to friends in other professions.  Lastly, I have been fortunate to experience who I believe is the best Attorney in the Twin Cities area!!

Thank you for everything Mark & team!  Chris Zweber
