With more than 25 years experience serving businesses, individuals and local governments, Tom is a true leader in our municipal law group. Since 1989, Tom has served as the City Attorney for the City or Mendota, as well as the City of Mendota Heights. He is the City Prosecutor for the City of Lilydale and regularly accepts prosecutorial appointments for other municipalities in Dakota County.

Tom works diligently with his clients to protect their interests and help them achieve their goals across a variety of issues facing municipalities, including:

  • Community development
  • Labor & employment
  • Environmental ordinances
  • Land use
  • Licensing
  • Procurement
  • Prosecution
  • Public finance
  • Real estate
  • Special assessments
  • Utilities & telecommunications

Tom rounds out his municipal law focus with an extensive business and individual practice. He assists clients with civil litigation, business formation and documentation, family and divorce matters, residential real estate transactions and documentation, and estate planning, trust and probate needs.

A graduate of William Mitchell School of Law, Tom has served as a law clerk for the Honorable J.B. Gunderson, District Court Judge for the 10th Judicial District; and the Honorable Thomas J. Kalitowski, Judge for the Minnesota Court of Appeals.

Tom is an active member of the St. Croix Valley and Dakota County communities, with special commitments to education, legal aid and youth sports. When he's not representing clients, you're likely to find Tom on a softball field, soccer field or basketball court; coaching youth athletes in the St. Croix Valley, where he lives with his family.
