About Us

The Olson Law Firm offers our clients experienced litigation and appellate legal representation.

The internet is full of opinions and self-representation tips when it comes to the law. Do not make the mistake of representing yourself. It may seem like you are saving money, but in the long run if legal issues arise, it is going to cost you more than if you would have had an attorney consult with you.

Unfortunately, for many people, it is only after they are involved in litigation that they realized they should have hired an attorney to consult with before: entering any type of contract, selling any type of property, leasing property, forming a corporation, forming a limited liability company, creating shareholder/member agreements, assigning or leasing intellectual property rights, among many other areas where the counsel of an attorney is invaluable at the outset.

There is no "do over" in the law. You have to get it right the first time. That is a costly and painful lesson many have learned and then turned to our firm for future legal services.

Not all attorneys are the same. Carefully consider the qualifications, experience, and the years of practice of an attorney before retaining one. Do not be baited by an attorney with only a few years of experience. Your case is too important to put in the hands of a law firm that assigns a recent graduate to represent you.

The Olson Law Firm has the experience and knowledge to give you the peace of mind that you are being guided by a professional with experience and knowledge that is focused on serving you.
