Jim Lindell and Jim Lavoie have spent years honing their craft as trial lawyers and dedicated advocates for their clients. Friends from their first days of law school at the University of Minnesota, Lindell and Lavoie remained in close contact even as they explored differing career paths: Lavoie serving for seven years as the Mille Lacs County attorney before building a successful personal injury practice and Lindell rapidly establishing himself as a respected force in Minnesota’s workers’ compensation and personal injury community. Both have been honored numerous times as Minnesota Super Lawyers® and both belong to the prestigious Academy of Certified Trial Lawyers of Minnesota.
In 1997 Lindell and Lavoie joined forces to establish a firm dedicated to providing elite legal services for injured clients. Over the years, they have put together a team of attorneys and staff which shares their devotion to helping injured people restore balance to their lives and demanding accountability from individuals and businesses whose negligence causes injury. Lindell & Lavoie’s attorneys and staff do not end their dedication to their clients at the courthouse steps. They are committed to helping clients through the aftermath of an injury. Whether it is assisting an injured worker in understanding the complex maze of the workers’ compensation system, providing guidance for medical services to a profoundly disabled client, or working to sort out bills, insurance payments, and future needs after the settlement or verdict, Lindell & Lavoie’s team is there to help.
Lindell & Lavoie handles all types of personal injury cases, catastrophic injuries, medical malpractice, auto accidents, product liability, design defects, workers’ compensation, and wrongful death. In addition, we offer select services in criminal defense and insurance coverage litigation. Most of our legal fees are contingent, which means that there is no charge for our legal fees unless and until we achieve a successful result for our clients.
Most of our cases come as referrals from past clients or other lawyers who trust Lindell & Lavoie to provide excellent legal services for friends, family, and clients. We welcome all calls from potential clients and other lawyers.
