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

Mark is also a friend of organized labor and speaks frequently to union and other employee groups about a range of issues affecting the health and safety of working men and women. He has developed an in-depth understanding of the Union Construction Workers' Compensation Program, which administers many of the Work comp cases for injured workers in the construction trades.

Injured Workers Have Third Party Option After Work Comp
Work injuries are life changing and still all too common in America. Injured workers wonder if they will ever return to work, how they will pay for extended care and rehabilitation, and who will pay the bills while they recover. Today, workers’ compensation insurance is available in all 50 states and covers some medical care and lost income. But with workers’ comp benefits under attack and shrinking in many states, injured workers should not overlook possible third party actions for additional financial support.

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.

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!

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.

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.
