Now at Fafinski Mark & Johnson, P.A. in New Ulm, Minnesota


Serving clients' legal needs and providing education on elder law and food and agriculture issues

Over the next few years, 93 million acres of farmland will change hands through gifts, trusts, and wills.  Americans are aging, putting pressure on caregivers, healthcare providers, and our legal institutions to address the needs of the older generation.  With all the wisdom that comes with age, we as a community have a special duty to treat our elders with respect and dignity.  But with limited resources, families are often strained to provide loved ones with the care they need.  And farm families in particular often struggle with the dual challenge of providing care for a retiring farmer while preserving the land and the legacy of the family farm.

That's where I come in.

As an attorney, I combine my experience working on farms and with farmers with my experience in estate planning and elder law.  I have also received formal training in agriculture and food law from the University of Arkansas.  As a teacher, I share my experience and expertise in the law with my students and the community groups that I speak with.  In my professional life, I seek to bring guidance and stability to families and small businesses that are struggling with change and aging, with a special emphasis on helping farm families keep the land in farming for future generations.
