A firm who handles personal injury, motor vehicle accidents and wrongful death claims should have experience, knowledge of the law and a willingness to work hard. They must also have the courage and ability to take each case all the way to trial if necessary.  Many attorneys who hold themselves out as personal injury lawyers avoid the courtroom at all cost and settle every case whether the settlement represents fair compensation or not. It does not take defense lawyers and insurance adjusters long to figure that out. They know that when push comes to shove, some lawyers will do anything to avoid the courtroom.

At Tewksbury & Kerfeld our personal injury lawyers prepare every case as if it will go to trial. In doing so, we increase the chances of settlement.

Tewksbury & Kerfeld, P.A. is a unique personal injury law firm. While we are a small law firm of six personal injury attorneys , the founding partners, Michael Tewksbury and Keith Kerfeld, have a combined experience of over 50 years handling personal injury and wrongful death cases and have practiced law at some of the largest law firms in the state. Both partners have been repeatedly recognized by our peers and named in Law and Politics and Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine as personal injury “Super Lawyers,” an honor reserved for the top 5 percent of lawyers in the state. Furthermore, Mike Tewksbury has been honored as a top 40 personal injury lawyer on two occasions, a top 40 mediator in the state, a top appellate attorney and as an overall top 100 attorney in the state of Minnesota.

We are small by choice. Our personal injury attorneys do not handle hundreds of cases at once. At Tewksbury & Kerfeld, P.A. we are able to devote a significant amount of personal attention and effort to each client. That is important since many of the cases we handle can be complex and require experience and thoughtful consideration. We have experience handling a wide variety of personal injury and wrongful death cases, including automobile accidents, boating injuries, ATV and snowmobile accidents, products liability, wrongful death, and medical and other professional malpractice.

When you call the law firm of Tewksbury & Kerfeld, P.A. to discuss your case, you will receive the personal attention of some of the top personal injury attorneys in the state. We are hands-on in our approach. If your case needs to be tried to obtain maximum compensation, we will try it. We pride ourselves on being trial lawyers. We bring experience and skill to the courtroom. Further, we use the latest technology such as computer trial presentation software and equipment to prepare and present a case to the jury.

The law firm of Tewksbury & Kerfeld, P.A. is also unique for a second reason. We hold the distinction of being one of the very few personal injury and wrongful death law firms in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area that is also retained on occasion by a select group of insurance companies and defense lawyers to defend complex cases for them. They trust that we have the skill and experience to handle a wide variety of complex personal injury and wrongful death cases. That experience gives us a unique perspective when we are representing injury victims and the families who have lost loved ones. We know how the other sides thinks. Our law firm also does a significant amount of mediation and arbitration work. That means that other lawyers, both personal injury lawyers and defense lawyers, hire our law firm to mediate or decide cases involving personal injury and wrongful death. Again, Tewksbury & Kerfeld, P.A. has earned the respect and trust of other lawyers and insurance companies.
