Why I Became a
Know Your Rights
Personal Injury Attorney

I knew from the day I started working for SiebenCarey right out of law school more than 30 years ago that I wanted to be a lawyer fighting for injured people and their families rather than defending the profits of big businesses and insurance companies. People are often scared when they come to me and are confused by a system they don’t understand. Nothing is more gratifying than helping them take control of their lives once again and making sure they receive all the benefits and support they and their families deserve.

Daunne Schaller

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.

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.

Michael Gudmundson

I had the unfortunate experience of being bitten and torn by a Pit Bulldog. I turned to Art Kozieradski and his staff at the Lakeville office of SiebenCarey law firm. I couldn't have made a better choice. Art listened carefully to what I wanted to have happen, collected all of the documents and information required and presented my case to the attorneys of the dog owner's insurance company. He and his staff worked on the case for several months and kept me informed as to what was happening every step of the way. His negotiating skills led to a VERY good settlement. I couldn't have been happier with the outcome.

Align Chiropractic

Art and his team at SiebenCarey in Lakeville are top notch. Professionally, they are very easy to work with. I know first hand that their clients are taken care of. If you have been in an Auto Accident, or have experienced any type of injury. Art and his team at SiebenCarey are where you need to go.

Scott Wilson

I've worked with Art Kosieradzki as co-counsel in a number of major personal injury and coverage cases, and I know his abilities. He is a top-flight trial lawyer and he has the results to prove it. At least two of his attributes may not be immediately apparent, however: First, he's creative and has achieved large recoveries where a lesser lawyer might have given up. Second, he cares and he has time for people. The latter is a precious quality in our hard-driven profession. Add to that an excellent and personable staff and the backing of the powerhouse SiebenCarey law firm, and what you have in Art is simply this: the right lawyer.

Brenda Moore-Hernandez

Last year my daughter was killed in a car accident. She was a single mother taking care of two young children. I hired Art at the SiebenCarey Lakeville office. It was the best thing I ever did. Art has helped me through what has been the most difficult time in my life. Art and his staff have treated me more like a friend than a client. I would strongly encourage you to call Art at SiebenCarey Lakeville if you are ever so unfortunate as to need an attorney.

Dmitriy Gula

These guys are really good! Helped me out a ton! Art is very knowledgeable.

Robin Wilson

Attorney Kosieradzki is a man of intelligence, experience and integrity. I would whole-heartedly recommend his services to anyone.

James Graff

Art and the staff were wonderful to work with. They kept us informed with the case and would highly recommend Art and staff.

Steve Miller

I've know Art Kosieradzki and the folks at SiebenCarey for nearly 30 years. When my mother-in-law needed an attorney after a roll-over accident, I sent her to SiebenCarey. They were compassionate and professional. I'd recommend them to anyone who wants a personal injury lawyer they can trust.

William Flom

I had a great experience and loved working everyone at Art's office. They were always welcoming and helpful whenever I stopped by. I ultimately had a great result and would highly recommend using their services.

Barbara Wandrei

I came to SiebenCarey and worked with Art following a fall. I was very impressed with how caring and concerned Art and his staff were regarding my situation. Because of the fall I sustained serious facial fractures and they helped me through it both legally and emotionally. They also kept me informed and in the loop as the case progressed. Having never been through this before, that was extremely important to me. In the end we were able to make a recovery that exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend everyone to consider Art if you ever get injured.

Sean Tyson

Had a great response and was very pleasant. The whole process was simple and easy and had more than I thought.

Robert Pettit

Art and his staff helped me after I was involved in a bad car crash. I can't believe what an unbelievable job they did. First, they were always available when I needed them. I could call any time and they honestly kept me from getting anxiety attacks. When they told me the details of my settlement, I thought they were kidding. It was so beyond what I imagined possible. Based on my experience I would recommend Art and the SiebenCarey firm to anyone who has the misfortune of getting in an accident. They are the best!

Matthew Newman

As a disability lawyer, I have opportunities to work with and recommend Personal Injury Firms, and SiebenCarey (and Art in particular) is one of the firms and lawyers I have at the top of my referral list. My ex-wife was injured in an auto accident, and I sent her to Art, who did his usual excellent and professional job in helping her recover what she was owed. I've also had occasion to work on a large, complex case with Art that spilled over into my specialty. We produced an outstanding result for our client. I was particularly impressed by the fact that he and his firm never hesitated to bring in and pay for outside expert resources that maximized our chances to win the case. Not every firm has the mindset or wherewithal to do that.

Alyssa Mark

If you want a caring and skilled lawyer with integrity I highly recommend Art Kosieradzki. The thing that immediately struck me was that he seemed to genuinely care about me and my situation. I felt comfortable right away. He and his staff are great to work with; they are highly competent and knowledgeable. He helped me and my family greatly, and I can't thank him enough!

Annalise Backstrom

I worked for Art at SiebenCarey for a few years while I was in college and it was a great experience. Art is always friendly and treats everyone with respect, including his clients. He is extremely intelligent and a fantastic attorney. I can confidently say that Art and his staff go above and beyond for their clients and work incredibly hard on all of their cases. They are passionate, trustworthy, and dedicated. If you're looking for representation in a personal injury matter, go see Art Kosieradzki with SiebenCarey - I guarantee that you will not be disappointed!

Melissa Snorek

Art and his team did a fantastic job for me. I had no idea what to expect but he made the process simple and worry free for me and got me a great settlement in way less time than I ever could have anticipated. Thank you Art!

Lyle Paulson

I was referred to Art by another attorney after a car accident and couldn't be more pleased. Art and his staff handled everything making the process much easier for us to get through. It is obvious Art knows what he is doing and is highly respected by the insurance companies and others. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend Art if you need an attorney.

Art and his staff are very friendly and made the whole process extremely easy. If you are ever injured I highly recommend you give Art a call at the Lakeville SiebenCarey office. You won't be disappointed.

Susan McIntosh

Art and his staff are extremely professional and easy to work with. Having a local attorney is very convenient. It is clear these folks have been doing this a long time. I highly recommend this firm!

Bill Wendlandt

Art uncomplicated the entire process. It was a real eye-opener. The outcome was a great success.

Kelli Bechtel

Finding a great personal injury attorney can make all the difference in the world on how your case turns out.

Ryan Betzina

I have known Mr. Kosieradzki for several years and every patient who has ever consulted him for legal services has given him rave reviews. His level of communication with me and my patients is outstanding. For anyone needing legal advice on a personal injury matter we highly recommend him and his team!

Bob Foley

People do not realize how important it is to team up with a professional that has experience and skill in handling the complex world of claims and insurance. The laws change all the time and when you team up with an attorney with the experience and background that specialize in personal injury, you get someone that knows the changes in the law so that you can be at ease throughout the process.

I am so pleased that Art and his staff were able to wade through this very complex case and bring it to the best resolution possible. I now have the financial ability to try and put my life back together and get back to as near a normal life as I possibly can. Without Art, this would not have been possible. I am forever grateful and strongly recommend that if you have had the misfortune to get hurt at the hands of another, please give Art a call in Lakeville, MN.

Ashlyn Wall

They were able to work with me while I was away for school and much appreciated the help. I would highly recommend them!

Erika Beimert

I have been working with Art and his staff since 2013 when I was run over by a drunk driver. Everyone from Beverly who runs his front office and stays in constant contact with me just as much as he does to Lynn, another lawyer in the office who does just as much research on every case as Art does and fights along side to get the fairest settlements possible for the victims. The one thing that struck me from the beginning was that Art's firm was the only firm who sent his investigator to me. His investigator was amazing; kind, thorough and compassionate. Every time I wanted to give in and just "be done" with it all because I was just so tired of fighting, Art and his amazing team kept going; knowing and feeling the same frustration I was feeling. They are both professional and empathetic to their clients and made me feel as if I was the only client they had.;even though I knew they are very busy. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a personal injury law firm.

Debbie Hanson

I am extremely pleased with how Art and his staff settled my claim. Thank you for making this stressful process go smoothly. I highly recommend Art and his staff at Lakeville's SiebenCarey

Joshua Rickert

Art and his Lakeville team have been a tremendous legal resource for our patients injured in motor vehicle accidents. Getting into an accident is terribly inconvenient; it can be very scary and overwhelming.. insurance companies, vehicle damage, loss wages, replacement services, medical bills and the list goes on .. sometimes the situation warrants a strong legal counsel to help navigate through that process.. Art can give you the peace of mind you need and deserve. They will work hard to make sure all bases are covered, all needs are met and will go the extra mile to make sure you are are treated fairly at the end of the day! Highly recommend.

Jesse Bukal

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.

Morgan Petoletti
My husband had an amazing experience with this firm. They listened and took the time to understand our case.

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.
