As legal matters become increasingly complex, specialization is essential to providing quality legal service. Many Barna, Guzy & Steffen attorneys are certified by the Minnesota State Bar Association as specialists in their practice areas. Each attorney also limits their practice to just a few areas of the law. By having a number of experienced attorneys concentrating their practice within the same law firm, we are able to offer our clients the precise legal expertise to meet their needs.

Our strong commitment to continuing education keeps our attorneys and entire staff abreast of the latest developments in the law, legal research and procedures. Many of our attorneys have been instructors for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Seminars offered by the Minnesota State Bar Association. We encourage community participation by everyone and numerous Barna, Guzy & Steffen attorneys have served in bar association leadership roles and have been appointed to the judiciary.
