You deserve excellence.

Led by managing partner M. Sue Wilson, a Stanford Law School graduate who has practiced family law for more than 40 years, we fight for the best result for each and every client.

We’re committed to obtaining justice, one person at a time. In doing so, we believe you deserve nothing less than the best counsel, the best communication, and the best result. Here are four ways in which we deliver this for you.

  1. We don’t stop working until we’ve exhausted every available avenue.
    We have more than 40 years of experience in all aspects of family law. Because we understand the nuances of each case, we understand how the law will apply. We don’t make rookie mistakes, and we know how to argue for the best result.
  2. Almost all of our cases settle favorably in mediation.
    We treat mediation seriously and prepare thoroughly with you. We understand how the law will apply. Nevertheless, in those cases where mediation does not resolve all the issues, we are not afraid to go to trial, and our reputation as accomplished trial lawyers is well deserved.
  3. We work for you.
    Our responsiveness sets us apart from other firms. We believe client communication is the hallmark of good representation in family law; we are always available to address your concerns. Throughout your case, we return your calls promptly, speak plainly, and provide regular updates. We are upfront and ethical about our fees so that there are no surprises.
  4. Driven by a relentless passion for justice.
    We have argued more than 90 cases before the Minnesota Court of Appeals. We have prevailed in some of the state’s most high-profile cases, including In re Guardianship of Kowalski, 478 N.W. 2d 790. These efforts have been widely praised for shaping Minnesota’s family law and policy.
I am a lawyer myself, and I hired the firm because of its well-earned reputation in handling tough cases. I was surprised, however, by Sue’s empathy and support during the divorce... I happily recommend Sue to anyone facing a difficult family law problem.G. A.


I was moved to tears when I read your fine summary of my position. I cannot thank you enough for the endless work and thought you have put into my case. I will attend next Tuesday’s hearing knowing that you have built the strongest case possible for me. Whatever the outcome, I will always feel grateful for your contributions.S.B.
I am eternally grateful to have Sue Wilson’s Law Office and her team to support me throughout legal proceedings with my ex-husband. It took a lot of pressure off of me, but more importantly, having her office in my corner really kept the emotional stress at bay. I was confident in their ability and they proved me right.A.V.
When I first walked into M.Sue Wilson's law offices, I was immediately greeted by their warm and friendly administrative staff. I was offered a beverage and waited less than 2 minutes for my appointment. I was very nervous and uncertain of even where to begin with my list of questions. That was the last day I would ever experience any uncertainty or fear inside Sue's office. My confidence in my future was being restored as I explained my situation and Sue began answering every question. I had interviewed several other law firms and this had not been my experience elsewhere. The "team approach " that they utilize is invaluable. Every person working with M.Sue gives 100% effort; honesty, accuracy and efficiency are just some of their attributes.They work very hard at not wasting time and money, while being extremely thorough. Integrity was one of the most important issues for me in pursuing any firm I would be working with. I would say M.Sue Wilson's team has exceeded any expectation I ever had. B. H.
Their guidance reflected wisdom and effectiveness and made a painful time less frightening. I have recommended the firm to clients and friends and each has found their work extremely valuable. I can’t speak highly enough of the work and integrity of these lawyers.S. B.
I highly recommend this firm and truly believe when you find yourself in such a situation M. Sue Wilson and staff are the ones you want on your side. I have never encountered a law firm with their unique philosophy of actually caring about the person and not just the case and it truly sets them apart. I am forever grateful and will recommend them to anyone I know who would find themselves in similar circumstances.N
