Casey’s past – adopted at birth and growing up on a rural family farm in southwestern Minnesota – is a prologue to her personal values and professional passions. She is the third enrolled member in the history of the Yankton Sioux Tribe to become an attorney. Today her law practice focuses on taking difficult cases and re-writing the odds for her clients in high stakes litigation.
The lessons Casey learned on the farm continue to guide her as a lawyer: tenacity, creativity, old fashioned hard work, and most importantly never giving up on a neighbor in need. Casey’s unique life experiences are an important asset to her clients because they guide her creative and tenacious approach to difficult situations. Before joining Robins Kaplan, Casey studied Art & Italian language in Florence, Italy and worked for a highly regarded lobbyist during a South Dakota Legislative Session. Her next steps took her to the doors of the British Parliament in London, where she worked for a Member of the House of Commons. She has been an Associate Student at the London School of Economics and a law clerk for the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.
