Minnesota Lawyer, by Barbara Jones

"It's been very intense to listen to the stories."

The "war room" is a conference room at SiebenCarey. Susan Holden is the general - the head of a special master panel appointed to oversee the distribution of $37 million in compensation to survivors of Aug. 1, 2007, the day the I-35W bridge fell into the Mississippi River. It's been daunting task for Holden, joined with Steven Kirsch and Michael Tewsksbury, who made the awards after reviewing and holding hearings on 179 claims. "The best part about working on this panel was working with Mike and Steve," Holden remarks.

It's been an emotional journey for the three since they were appointed last May. "It's been very intense to listen to the stories," Holden says. Holden, Kirsch and Tewksbury gave a thorough review to the difficult, even tragic stories of the survivors, even those who requested a paper hearing. Every person who wanted to meet with a panel member, or the whole panel, did.

Very professional and courteous staff with a drive to make you comfortable in every aspect of their service.
Roberta Jordan

My family was referred to Susan Holden at SiebenCarey by our hometown attorney in a wrongful death case.  She was very accommodating to us and very approachable. Staff was top notch and doggedly pursued two different insurance companies to accomplish an outcome far beyond anything we'd anticipated. We could not have gotten results close to what she achieved without her. We will be forever appreciative.

I have referred several personal injury and wrongful death cases to Susan Holden for handling. Susan has been very professional in her approach to these cases and has obtained settlements on behalf of the clients. She also is very courteous, knowledgeable, and has a great "bedside manner" in dealing with her clients. Several clients have thanked me for referring their cases to Susan.

I have worked on cases with Sue Holden of Sieben Carey for over 20 years. As a trial attorney, I feel confident referring my clients with personal injury issues to Sue, as I know she and her team take the time to listen to their clients, explore and explain their options, monitor their recovery with compassion and persistently advocate for them in negotiations and in court. Sue has the utmost credibility in the legal community and an ability to resolve complex problems. She is highly respected by the courts as well as attorneys for her competence and steadfast dedication to helping injured people. I recommend working with Sue Holden and her team without reservation.

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.
