Kirsten focuses her practice on education law, employment law, and civil litigation. She advises School Districts on employment issues, investigating employee and student misconduct, employee and student discipline, open meetings and records requests, and the broad array of other issues School Districts encounter on a day-to-day basis. She also represents School Districts in administrative proceedings and in litigation.

Kirsten’s litigation practice focuses on civil defense, insurance defense, and oil and gas law. She has defended personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice, property damage, and product liability claims and has represented clients in business and contract disputes, mineral disputes, and other oil and gas issues. Kirsten works with her clients to understand the issues, to understand the client’s goals, and to develop strategies to resolve the issues.

Before joining the firm, Kirsten served as a law clerk to the Honorable Daniel J. Crothers of the North Dakota Supreme Court and the Honorable Charles S. Miller, Jr., of the United States District Court for the District of North Dakota. During her clerkships, Kirsten sharpened her writing and research skills and gained first-hand knowledge of the operations of North Dakota’s state and federal courts.

Kirsten grew up in Mandan. She graduated with high honors from the University of Montana School of Law and was an editor for the Public Land & Resources Law Review. Kirsten enjoyed life in the mountains but is happy to be home where she is close to family.
