Bob Brownson is a very experienced and persuasive trial lawyer who knows the nuances of the Rules of Evidence and knows his way around a courtroom. He never loses sight of the importance of simplifying his case and themes so that they are easily understood and eventually adopted by juries and judges. I had the pleasure of watching Bob work his trial skills in a recent case in federal court in Minnesota in which he eventually persuaded a jury to see his client’s side of the story. He is professional, polite, and yet aggressive in the representation of his client’s interests.

I had the opportunity to get to know and work with Brownson Norby, PLLC as retained workers compensation claims counsel for North Star Foodservice Minnesota and U.S. Foodservice Minnesota.  I observed the following attributes that enabled Brownson Norby, PLLC to service these organizations in an exemplary manner: Brownson Norby consistently demonstrated exceptional personal character and ethical behavior; they also demonstrated a very high level of expertise in the area of workers compensation claims administration and resolution… which managed to save the company in excess of $100,000! I have worked with several attorneys over the years in this area of the law and Brownson Norby is absolutely the best one that I have encountered. Brownson Norby is a wonderful business partner for U.S. Foodservice! In conclusion, I strongly recommend the Brownson Norby law firm to any organization in need of a very high level of workers compensation claims administration and resolution legal expertise!

Our company engaged Kristi Brownson and Brownson Norby, PLLC for a significant personal injury claim filed against us in 2008. Kristi managed every aspect of the claim with extraordinary professionalism. From the moment the claim was filed, Kristi took the necessary steps to ensure that we were fully prepared, and nurtured us through all steps, leading ultimately to a most acceptable settlement in favor of our firm.

Kristi handled the case with diligence, passion, and with a strong sense of protecting our company. No stone was left uncovered. We were most impressed with every aspect of Kristi's performance and proudly recommend her to those seeking the best in legal representation.

Throughout the entire claim, our company felt confident in our position. Kristi has the unique ability of delivering the facts and preparing the client in such a way as to best represent it in a claim.


I have had the privilege of working with Bob Brownson and a number of his partners and associates for over 25 years on a wide variety of matters. Bob and his colleagues have always exhibited great knowledge and professionalism in their dealings with me. They have been tenacious advocates for me in any matter they handled, whether on the plaintiff or defendant side of the fence.

Most recently, Brownson Norby have been managing extremely complicated multi-state personal injury and workers compensation matters for my business. They have been enormously effective and have provided much appreciated legal guidance through some very difficult litigation.

And as important as anything, these are very nice people to work with – I highly recommend Brownson Norby.
