Practice Philosophy:
“I work to ensure that the client understands all the facts, issues, and law applicable to their particular situation so they can make timely informed decisions to achieve their goals and desired outcome.”

The Rest of the Story:
Outside of work Nate enjoys running, cooking, reading non-fiction, and watching documentaries. He also considers himself an aviation enthusiast – he obtained his private pilot license at the age of 18 and has flown on numerous vintage aircraft, including a 1929 Ford Tri-Motor and a 1945 Boeing B-17 “Flying Fortress.” Being a lifelong Minnesotan, Nate’s favorite sport is hockey and the Minnesota Wild is his favorite team.
