Bethany began her career as a Paralegal in the Minnesota Army National Guard in 2004. Shortly after, she attended Minnesota State University with a major in finance and a minor in business law, and as a sophomore, began working as a legal assistant at a local law firm where she was responsible for handling Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases. Bethany soon began working in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in St. Paul after earning her undergraduate degree.

After attending law school at William Mitchell in St. Paul, Bethany worked as a law clerk for the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Minneapolis City Attorney’s Office, and the Chisago County Attorney’s Office. She then returned to the same local law firm where she had worked as a legal assistant years before and worked as a solo attorney.

Bethany’s unique education and experience give her the perfect balance to be a successful and knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney. She joined our team at MLG Legal in 2020, and we couldn’t be happier that she is here.
