Two SiebenCarey Attorneys Selected "Top Women Attorneys in Minnesota"

SiebenCareyFebruary 14, 2013

SiebenCarey is pleased to announce Susan M. Holden and Shannon C. Carey have been selected as "The Top Women Attorneys in Minnesota". This selection was made from the women who were selected to the 2012 Minnesota Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists.

Susan Holden, selected a Top 50 Women Super Lawyer, has been honored in the Minnesota Super Lawyers annual selection for the last ten years. Just five percent of all lawyers in Minnesota are named to this list every year by Super Lawyers. Super Lawyers rate lawyers who have attained a high-degree of professional achievement. Attorneys are selected based on a rigorous, multi-phase rating process that includes peer nominations, evaluations and third party research.

Holden, a partner at SiebenCarey, is 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 focuses her practice in the areas of wrongful death, catastrophic injury, product liability, construction site and automobile accident insurance litigation. Holden is a respected ADR neutral providing mediation and arbitration services, and notably was selected to chair the State of Minnesota's 35W bridge collapse compensation process in which all 179 claims were successfully resolved. She is active in bar leadership within the state and nationally.

Shannon Carey was named to the 2012 Rising Stars list published by Super Lawyers magazine. Each year, Super Lawyers rates outstanding lawyers who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.  No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named to the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list. The list highlights emerging attorneys who are either under the age of 40 or who have been practicing law for ten or fewer years. The selection process includes peer nominations by attorneys named to the Minnesota Super Lawyers list and independent research on the candidates to identify outstanding up-and-coming attorneys who have demonstrated superior professional potential.

Carey gained her first legal experience as a law clerk at the firm and today practices in all areas of personal injury law and medical malpractice. In 2011, Shannon received Minnesota Lawyer's "Up and Coming Attorneys" award. This award is reserved for attorneys who have distinguished themselves during their first 10 years of practice.

"We're pleased to have Susan and Shannon recognized by Super Lawyers in 2012," said Jim Carey, President of SiebenCarey. "Our 19 attorneys focus on compassionate representation of the people we serve. This recognition acknowledges our day-to-day efforts focused on our 'Know Your Rights' philosophy designed to protect people over the interests of big business."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Andrea Long

I reached out to SiebenCarey after a partial amputation of my foot following an accident. Art took on my case and without question it was the best decision I ever made. He and his staff did an amazing job and were extremely helpful. I felt like I not only gained an attorney to work on my case, but also a friend & family within those I spoke & dealt with in the office. Going through the legal process can be an agonizing and slow process, especially in the age of COVID. In the end Art presented all the facts and helped me make an informed decision. Understanding I had to decide whether to settle or go to trial, I ultimately chose to settle and couldn’t be more pleased. If I could give Art 20 stars I would.

Eric Beyer is the best!!! Definitely above a five star rating.

Heather Beal

When someone asks me to refer them to a personal injury lawyer, I immediately give them Jim Carey’s name and contact information at SiebenCarey in Minneapolis. Jim is more than a top-rated, expert personal injury attorney, he is an empathetic and compassionate listener. He sees people, not simply case files. He has represented my friends well by sincerely caring about the immediate and lasting effects that injuries from car accidents, negligence or other circumstances have had on their lives.

Sean Beggs

I was referred to SiebenCarey by a friend after I was involved in a bicycle accident. Jim Carey represented me and throughout the process I was never anxious about the case because he and his team were in constant communication. I knew where we stood and the course of action we were taking which gave me peace of mind throughout my recovery. Everyone I encountered at SiebenCarey from the first phone call until the final resolution treated my case as if it were top priority and they did so respectfully, professionally, and achieved results beyond my expectations. It was a pleasurable experience during a difficult time.
