   The case made headlines around the country, and Surdo was named “Attorney of the Year” by Minnesota Lawyer, although he is quick to share the credit. “It should have been the whole team,” he said. “Everyone on the team gave heart and soul.

Not only were they highly skilled professionally, they had the emotional characteristics that were so needed at that time in our lives.” The letter calls out every single member of the team before describing how the team “knocked it out of the park. It was a very difficult and emotional few days, but from the onset of the trial it was apparent that we were in the most capable hands.”
