Super Lawyer honorees are selected from an annual survey and the distinction is bestowed on less than five percent of Minnesota's practicing attorneys.

Why I Became a
Know Your Rights
Personal Injury Attorney

My father was a teacher and a high school coach, so I grew up in a household with a very strong work ethic. This experience inspired me to help working men and women who have been injured on the job. As a workers’ comp lawyer, I guide them through the maze of regulations and numerous pitfalls in Minnesota’s workers’ comp system. After 39 years spent right here at SiebenCarey, I know that representing working people and their families is the perfect fit for me.

I would like to say,  I couldn't have found a better attorney for my situation.
I had gotten hurt on the job, Mark Olive handled my case and after 20 years, he is still there for me..

Ted Oscarson

I'm very pleased with the results of association with Sharon and Mark. Sharon was a wonderful intermediary between myself and Mark. He handled several disputes between me and my employer, all in my favor. He then negotiated a very good settlement for my injuries when my employer would no longer allow me to continue my employment with them.

Christine Zweber

I have known Mark Olive for many years!  Mark has navigated me through several work related injuries in the world of Workman's Comp(WC) issues since 1987. 

Mark and his team (especially Sharon Hanson) are so amazing...knowledgeable, innovative, persistent, honest, hard-working, informative, great communication skills, organized, kind, caring, accessible, trust-worthy, sensitive to employee's concerns, great listeners, advocates, able to lead workers who are struggling to make sense of a VERY complicated system (WC), and so extremely professional in every way!!  Mark is able to explain even the most mind-boggling legal jargon, information, details, and the 'plan' to an employee in a way that is simply honest and sensible. 

Mark and his team truly work to improve the lives of workers who have been injured on-the-job with integrity, thoroughness, legal thoughtfulness, and perseverance.
  
I will continue to recommend Mark and his team to educational professionals who have been injured on-the-job as well as to friends in other professions.  Lastly, I have been fortunate to experience who I believe is the best Attorney in the Twin Cities area!!

Thank you for everything Mark & team!  Chris Zweber

Mark Olive represented me in a Work Comp Claim. He went above and beyond, got results and helped my family with what was rightfully mine. I applaud he and his paralegal Sharon. If you have a legit injury, he's the guy you wanna talk to.
Dean Tabor
You made sure I got all the help I needed! Mark Olive made sure that I got the best compensation possible through mediation. In the long run your office made me feel like you were looking out for my best interest all the way around, and yes I have recommended your group to people that have asked who helped me!
Nathan Vanderlinde

I wanted to say just how valuable Mark and his talented associates were to me. It was nice for SiebenCarey to take care of everything.Thank you.

Laurian Reiners

Mark Olive did an absolutely fantastic job helping Jim during his ordeal with the company he worked for.  The outcome made it so that Jim could retire after the settlement.  We could not asked for a better representative for him.

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.

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.
