Minnesota Employment, Wrongful Termination Lawyers

Dear Friends,

It’s been 3 years since Madia Law opened and I’m very grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to represent so many good and decent people going through tough times. I hope and believe that we’ve changed many lives for the better.

Madia Law has taken on slumlords who subjected their tenants to awful living conditions; a municipality that unlawfully forced a police officer to resign after learning of his sexual orientation; a Fortune 100 company that discharged a long time employee in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act; a police department that maced, tased, kicked, and arrested a young man who was doing nothing more than barbecuing with his family; and many more. Through it all, I’ve been humbled to represent some of the bravest and most decent individuals that I’ve ever met.
