With over a decade of practice in Minnesota law, I understand that when individuals and families seek out a lawyer, they need a zealous advocate who will counsel them not only on the legal aspects of their case, but also the practicalities. You may be worried about dealing with the stress of a pending legal matter and concerned with the cost of hiring an attorney, at Martin & Wagner, P.A., we offer quality legal representation at a fair price.

Estate Planning & Probate

I have a wealth of experience in the areas of estate planning, probate, guardianships and conservatorships, debtor/creditor issues and orders for protection/harassment restraining orders. I diligently and competently provide clients with services while remaining conscious of each client's financial situation.

Divorce & Family Law in Minnesota

In the context of divorce and family law, I empathize with your circumstances and advocate for your needs while at the same time keeping you grounded. I strive to keep the costs to a minimum. I have successfully represented both men and women to resolve issues of child custody, child support, parenting time, paternity, spousal maintenance and property divisions.

Business Formation

I have also assisted many business clients, from the formation of their business through to litigation over unpaid bills and former employee disputes. Quite simply, my business clients appreciate that I can handle their legal needs so they can get back to running their businesses.

On a personal note, I am married with two children, a cat and a dog. I grew up in Williston, North Dakota, before it was boomtown, and moved to Minnesota to attend college and law school. I met my husband on a blind date.
