Susan Holden Receives HCBA Professionalism Award

Susan M. Holden - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyMay 30, 2016

SiebenCarey is proud to announce Susan Holden will be honored with the 2016 Professionalism Award by the Hennepin County Bar Association (HCBA). HCBA Professionalism Awards are presented to “members of the bench and bar who best exemplify the pursuit of the practice of law as a profession, including a spirit of public service and promotion of the highest possible level of competence, integrity and ethical conduct.” The awards are presented by the HCBA’s Professionalism and Ethics Committee in the belief that “professionalism fosters respect and trust between lawyers, the judiciary and the public, serves the best interest of clients, promotes the efficient resolution of disputes and improves the administration of justice.”

Two stalwarts of the profession—Susan M. Holden (SiebenCarey) and Chief Judge Peter A. Cahill (Fourth Judicial District)—will be recognized by the association at its annual meeting on June 1 with the 2016 Professionalism Awards. 

Susan Holden has had a long and distinguished career as a partner at SiebenCarey, where she is a partner and shareholder. Susan has earned a reputation as a hard-working and talented trial lawyer. Since 1995 she has been certified as a Civil Trial Specialist by the Minnesota State Bar Association, a distinction achieved by less than one percent of women lawyers in Minnesota. She is also a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates, an elite organization of accomplished trial attorneys whose qualifications require demonstrated significant courtroom skill and experience, high personal character, and an honorable ethical reputation.  

In addition to her successful trial practice, in 2008 Susan was appointed by the Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice to chair the Special Master Panel in the specially created compensation process for survivors of the I-35W bridge collapse. Her responsibilities included designing and implementing a claims process, completing hearings and damages determinations in 179 claims, and deciding a fair distribution of the $36.64 million appropriated by the legislature to compensate survivors of that disaster.

Holden is a past president of both the Minnesota State Bar Association (MSBA) and the Hennepin County Bar Association (HCBA). She is a recipient of the MSBA’s Professional Excellence Award in recognition of outstanding contributions to the Bar and the profession.

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.

Even though I was states away and could only talk on the phone, they listened and did everything that they could to win my case. I felt like I was a part of the family.

Carly R.

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.

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.
