Lawyer Firm: Law Office of Barbara J. Gislason
|Areas of Practice||Family Law, Animal Law, Intellectual Property Law, Art and Entertainment Law, Public Policy|
What makes lawyers effective, even exceptional, is the simple things they do year after year. Because I have long concentrated on Family Law and helped pioneer both the Animal Law and Art, Entertainment and Sports Law practice areas, facts and equitable principles are everything important to me. I interview my clients and witnesses with the enthusiasm of legendary sleuths, carrying with me the conviction that when I understand the essential truth, I can successfully advance my client’s cause.
A third generation attorney, I have gained a reputation as a skilled and highly respected attorney, and when necessary, a tenacious litigator. I represent clients in the areas of Family Law, Art and Entertainment Law, and Animal Law. Within the field of Family Law, I have experience with International Family Law, Matrimonial Law, and the numerous legal questions that have arisen in recent years affecting same-sex couples.
I have often been selected for the Minnesota Super Lawyers List, was selected as a "Top 40" Family Law Attorney by Minnesota Law & Politics, a Leading American Attorney in Art and Entertainment Law by the American Research Corporation, and called the "Top animal advocate attorney in the country" by Dr. Phil. I have frequently been asked to speak internationally on the topics of Animal Law and Neuroscience Law.
With more than 30 years of experience, I have represented thousands of clients throughout the State of Minnesota, with the majority of my clients in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area. This gives me a deep understanding of the local court systems, and how to best help my clients.
I believe that most clients are seeking a compassionate listener who has the insight and skills to discover solutions to their problems and achieve desirable results. I have the energy, commitment, and experience. My office is conveniently located on University Avenue between Interstate 694 and Highway 10, with free parking. This location has allowed me to serve the entire Twin Cities metro area.
Please call my office to schedule a free, 30 minute meeting to see how I can use my skills and experience to help you.
