Bet-the-Company Litigation

The quality of Ciresi Conlin's attorneys and the general operation of this firm is excellent. Attorneys in Ciresi Conlin have an excellent understanding of the litigation process, both at the district court and appellate levels. I have personally tried a case with Michael Ciresi, he is the consummate trial attorney, and his regional and national reputation is well deserved. His trial preparation is thorough, with a mastery of facts and law. I have also worked on cases with Michael Sacchet at both the district court and appellate level. Michael's writing skills and legal analysis are excellent. Ciresi Conlin puts a premium on integrity, civility and working hard - the end result is excellent for their clients. I would never hesitate to refer clients to this firm.

Commercial Litigation

Ciresi Conlin is, in my opinion, the best overall trial firm in Minnesota if not the United States. Last year, Best Lawyer's competitor, Super Lawyers ranked three of Ciresi Conlin's lawyers in The Top Ten lawyers in the State of Minnesota: Mike Ciresi, Jan Conlin and Kathleen Peterson. I have worked with the firm as its co-counsel on several matters. They are the most responsive, well-prepared lawyers I have ever worked with and I have been practicing law for 40 years. I refer cases to them on a regular basis. I know that any client I send to them will receive the highest quality representation and responsiveness. When I have clients that simply want an opinion on a small matter, they patiently take my clients' calls and walk through their options with them even if they are not going to accept representation. The highest compliment I can give them is, if I needed a personal lawyer, I would hire them. Mark Briol
