Get to Know Flakne Law
"Brian Flakne handled my civil litigation in Hennepin County. Brian's courtroom skills are outstanding. I appreciated the time he took to explain all the relevant aspects of the law so that I would not be surprised by the arguments opposing counsel used at trial. By the time we started trial, I was confident that we had a terrific game plan and that we would win. He found a way for me to stand up to a bully and prevail."Victoria R.
