Little Falls, MN



I began my legal career as an attorney in Grand Rapids, Michigan before I even officially graduated law school.  I worked as a Student Attorney in the Access to Justice Family Law Clinic under the direction of practicing attorneys.  This was a Pro Bono (unpaid/free) legal position that sparked my interest in litigating real-life issues families were facing. 

After graduation I worked as a Litigation Attorney on divorces, custody matters, and as a Court-Appointed Attorney for Criminal and Child Protective Services cases.  My work with children, parents, and families on Child Protective Services cases introduced me to the adoption process, the foster care system, and trials involving termination of parental rights.  These were very serious, and often intense, cases that helped me define myself as an attorney- I represented both parents and children in these kinds of cases. 

After building my practice at my family’s firm I joined the Grand Rapids Law Group and began working on Immigration cases and Interstate (and Country) Child Custody disputes.  After practicing for five (5) years in Michigan, I moved with my wife, Jessica Schilling Brigman, back to her hometown of Fort Ripley, Minnesota.  I was offered a position with the Rosenmeier Law Office located in Little Falls, Minnesota and began working as an Associate Attorney in July 2018. 

I am admitted to practice law in Minnesota State Courts, Michigan State Courts, and I am also admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota and the Western District of Michigan.

Since becoming an attorney I have worked in many areas of law including Real Estate, Actions to Quiet Title, Title Research and Reviews, Torrens, Wills, Trusts, Probate, Guardianships, Conservatorships, Child Support Modification, Child Custody, Child Protective Services Cases, Interstate Custody Disputes dealing with the UCCJEA, Dissolution/Divorce, Bankruptcy, Foreclosure, Eviction, Judgments, Garnishments, Corporations, Partnerships, LLC's, Immigration, Social Security Disability and Civil Litigation. If you have questions about other areas of law, please contact me.
