“Growing up on a farm taught me the value of hard work, tenacity, and integrity. These values have shaped my life and continue to motivate me as an attorney. I’ve worked in the public and private sectors and have handled a broad range of cases involving criminal law, real property disputes, employment discrimination, employment termination disputes, breach of contract, civil rights, family law, personal injury, and wrongful death. My rural upbringing and broad exposure to the law have given me a unique perspective that I use to get the best possible results for my clients.” - Craig L. Pankratz
