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.

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.

Mr. Carey and his staff were so professional  and helpful dealing with our accident. Their communication was excellent. Working with the SiebenCarey team was the only bright spot in our horrible accident experience. We always felt we were represented by extremely knowledgeable and caring people. We appreciate the outstanding service we received.

Greg Christiansen

My wife and daughter were killed in a vehicular incident.  I was referred by a good friend to SiebenCarey . Jim Carey personally handled my situation. The compassion, professionalism, and competence was beyond excellent.  In a most difficult  time for my son and me the help we received was immeasurable and in fact, helped our healing process.  I want to personally thank Jim and his team for their assistance.  I would recommend this organization unreservedly and totally to anyone who needs help in a tough time.

Such a great experience - Angela and Jim were beyond easy to work with - always helpful and friendly, no matter how many times we asked the same question. Very quick to get back to a message or email - would highly recommend this firm.

Aaron Lundgren

When I needed help, after an auto accident,  I was unsure who to turn to. A family friend has suggested SiebenCarey to because of their prior experience.

I will tell you this, there is no one else I would recommend after the excellent service I was given.

They stayed on top of everything, they kept me in the loop, most of all they gave me piece of mind. I felt confident that there was nothing to worry about with such fantastic people on my side.

A big thank you to the folks at SiebenCarey!

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.

Cameron Lulic

2 years ago I went through a traumatic personal injury while I was in college. Through all of the chaos that was happening in my life as a result of this event, I cannot thank my father enough for referring me to SiebenCarey Personal Injury Law. Through a long and complicated process, I spent little time worrying about the legal battle when I had personal battles to fight on my own in addition to finishing my senior year. For that, I am eternally grateful to have had Jim Carey by my side to give clear and thoughtful advice for how to maneuver the legal challenges that my personal injury case faced. Thank you, Jim. If there was a silver lining that came out of a horrific experience, it was having the opportunity of working with you. You are tenacious, fair, and always willing to go the harder path to make sure your clients are well represented.

Roger and Merle Landro

We wanted to thank you so much for all that you did for us. This was a very difficult time in our life and you made it possible for us to get through it with a good outcome! Angela and Jane were also so good and helpful to us. We will never forget everything your firm did to be there for us. Life can have some difficult times, but people like you make it possible to have better days! - Roger & Merle Landro

Steph Mackey

I was injured in a car accident and I was becoming more and more stressed dealing with the insurance companies and their requests. Jim Carey took my case and told me to concentrate on healing and he would take care of the rest. What a weight off my shoulders! I would highly recommend Jim and his competent paralegal team.

Geoff Anthony

I started working with Jim from SiebenCarey after my wife and I were in a car accident a few years ago. We were referred to them by someone in the area and we are so grateful we worked with the firm. Jim and his team were very caring and very responsive to all needs and questions. He made sure that all of our medical bills and expenses from the accident were paid and took care of all of the questions and needs from insurance companies and medical facilities. It was so nice to have someone who was on our side. I would highly recommend working with Jim!

Lisa Gariepy

The entire Minneapolis team that worked with me was amazing.  Always proactive in sharing what to expect and taking time to explain things.  In a stressful, unfamiliar informed and supported. Wonderful group!

Maggie Healy

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.

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.

Dorothy Larson

I'm glad Jim and his staff were on my side after my accident in 2017. Everybody was so helpful and answered all of my questions. I had more than just the accident taking a toll on me at the time! I was still in the midst of having Chemo Therapy. Everyone was so kind to me and Jim was so helpful along with Rachel, Jayne, Lori, and Angela.

I also appreciated the fact that Jim called personally to let me know what was going on. Thanks to everyone and I would recommend Jim to anyone in need.

Barbara Heinzen

On November 17, 2017 I was involved in a car accident with a friend. A young man ran a red light. Both of us were ambulanced to the nearest hospital. With in three hours I had a friend call Jim Carey's office because they had used them . I had someone by my bedside the very next morning, and Jim Carey and his staff took such good care of me. They really did take the worry off my shoulders. Bottom line, it took about a year and a half and they were with me the entire time... Jim and his staff Angela, Jayne, and Lori, were all amazing. Got back to me fast, answered my questions so I could understand, and Jim would call if I needed to ask him a question. I felt I was the most important client!! If you need someone who will show that they care, you will not go wrong with Jim Carey and his staff.

John Zemlicka

My wife and I were involved in a car accident on October 4, 2018 when a driver approaching us decided to make a U turn and hit us. My wife spent nine days in the ICU with 10 broken or fractured ribs and multiple other injuries, and I had a broked rib and lacerations from my seat belt. The car was totaled.

We contacted SiebenCarey on the advice of a lawyer friend who we asked, “Who is the best injury lawyer in the Twin Cities”? We were interviewed within hours and the wheels were put in motion for medical benefits and recovery of our property and damages. We were advised that a complete settlement could take over a year, but our bills were paid and a settlement reached in less than 8 months. 
 
 Jim Carey called us several times during this period of time to update us on the progress of our claims. We are very happy and satisfied with the way we were treated and the results of our claim.

Sharon Jensen

Jim Carey and his staff were great. Returned calls promptly and answered any and all questions in layman's terms for me. Exceeded my expectations. I've already told family and friends that if any of them should need personal injury representation to contact SiebenCarey. I wouldn't hesitate to contact them again if necessary.

Christopher Revord

They took all the rights steps to settling my case fast!

It was a great experience working with Jim and his entire team! Always felt well taken care of and someone was always there to answer my many questions! Thanks!

Henry M Buffalo Jr, Esq
I have practiced law for over 30 years but not in the area of Personal Injury. When it comes to Personal Injury law I refer my family, clients and clients family to SiebenCarey. All of the referrals praise the handling of their case and the results - start to finish. In my humble view SiebenCarey are the best in the state.

After suffering a life changing traumatic brain injury, Jim Carey and his staff made my recovery process so much easier. They guided me through all of my medical treatment and mediation and made me feel supported the entire time. Even though COVID-19 put a spin on things and process changes, everything was so smooth. I would recommend this team any day!

Cheryl Nelson

Jim Carey is down-to-earth, understanding, compassionate, extremely focused and downright brilliant in his skillful and highly successful resolution to my serious injuries resulting from a car accident. I can't say enough about how grateful I am and how pleased I am with his representation and the service from his entire team. Thank you.

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.
