Mikael J. Ingvaldson has joined the firm’s Personal Injury and Criminal Law department. He will be working closely with attorneys practicing in those areas serving existing clients and enhancing the firm’s ability to serve our community.

Mikael began his career with BGS as a law clerk in the PI and Criminal Law department in 2019.  Finding it a perfect fit for his desire to pursue a career helping people navigate the legal system when they are in need, Mikael was thrilled to accept a permanent position in the department upon earning his JD from University of St. Thomas School of Law and passing the bar exam.
