Duluth News Tribune, by Chris Buckley

"We think the settlement was fair and, more importantly, hope it sends a message."

Mesabi Range Community and Technical College in Eveleth has reached a settlement with a former student who says she was the victim of sexual harassment.

In 2007, Kirstie Jones decided to go back to school At that time she was the only female enrolled in Mesabi Range's millwright program. She says other students - two in particular - started harassing her from day one. She ended up quitting the program and moving back to her hometown of Hoyt Lakes. Then she got in contact with personal injury attorney Harry Sieben.

"The only reason I took this case is I was shocked this was happening. This should not happen any place in the world, certainly Minnesota, and certainly not in a taxpayer-funded institution."

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.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
