With New Name SiebenCarey Remains Minnesota's Largest Personal Injury Law Firm

SiebenCareySeptember 03, 2014

Personal injury law firm, SiebenCarey today announced its new name as part of the firm's strategic rebranding effort now underway. Formerly Sieben, Grose, Von Holtum & Carey, the new SiebenCarey brand reflects the firm's current leadership and efforts among its 20 attorneys who assist Minnesotan's with legal representation when they need it most.

"SiebenCarey has a rich history protecting the rights of those we serve," said Jim Carey,  president and managing partner of SiebenCarey. "The new brand is a result of our staff and attorneys who work hard every day to help our clients. We're excited to announce the new name, launch our new logo, update our website (www.knowyourrights.com) and continue our historical service of legal counsel to injured Minnesotans."

Clint Grose and John Von Holtum first established the firm in Worthington, Minnesota. In 1960, the founders decided to solely focus on personal injury law cases - one of the first firms in the state to do so. An office in Minneapolis opened in 1965 and Harry Sieben joined the firm in 1969. Other major milestones during the firm's history include:

1971 - Clint Grose wins Minnesota's first $1 million personal injury verdict
1979 - Firm sponsors "Point of Law" on WCCO radio, the first law firm to make a major investment in advertising
1983 - Harry Sieben becomes firm president
1987 - John Carey merges practice
1997 - Attorney Art Kosieradzki wins largest verdict in firm history, $8 million
2009 - Jim Carey becomes firm president; Attorney Susan Holden leads court-appointed panel to oversee $36.6 million compensation fund for victims of 35W bridge collapse
2012 - Firm celebrates 60 years of service

Today SiebenCarey is the oldest and largest personal injury law practice in Minnesota. The firm has staff and offices in Minneapolis, Duluth, Fairfax and Lakeville. Attorneys who practice at SiebenCarey are consistently recognized by their peers in annual lists including Super Lawyers, Rising Stars and Best Lawyers in America.

SiebenCarey also announced the addition of Danielle Bird to the firm as a practicing attorney serving workers' compensation. Bird has specialized in workers' compensation since 2005, most recently with Lynn, Scharfenberg & Hollick where she defended workers' compensation claims for SFM Mutual Insurance Company. She is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association, Hennepin County Bar Association, member of the American Inns of Court-Douglas Amdahl Chapter and former co-chair of the Workers' Compensation committee of the MDLA.

"We're very pleased to add Danielle to the SiebenCarey team," added Carey. "She has successfully argued appellate cases at several levels, including a case before the Minnesota Supreme Court. Danielle will be a great asset to our firm and serve her clients well in the area of workers' compensation."

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.

Danielle Bird was very professional and worked hard to make sure I was compensated fairly for my injury. My case was difficult to prove, but she continued to move forward and supported me through the process. I would highly recommend her for Workers' Compensation claims.

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!

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.

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.

Rachel Daniel

We had a great experience with Jeff Sieben, thank you!

Richard Johnson

Excellent. Eric Beyer is an excellent attorney. I would recommend him to anyone, and I have.

Christine Butina

Jim Carey and his staff were excellent at their jobs. They were very understanding and were always available if you had questions on something with my case. They treated you as if you were their only client that they had. I would definitely recommend sending anyone to SiebenCarey because they really do care about you.
