Jim Krause has joined Lommen Abdo’s litigation practice focusing on professional liability, attorney discipline, insurance defense, insurance coverage and commercial litigation.

Jim is a Badger, having earned his B.A. from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 2017, along with certificates in business, entrepreneurship and European studies.  In law school, Jim was a senior editor of the St. Thomas Law Journal and was a member of the University’s Moot Court team.  Jim spent the better part of his law school years as a law clerk and claims handler at Minnesota Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company and brings that perspective to his practice at Lommen Abdo. Jim also previously clerked for the Olmsted County Attorney’s Office where he handled a variety of matters for the county’s civil division and learned his way around the courtroom.

“I am thrilled to begin my practice with Lommen Abdo’s Litigation group. Throughout law school, I gained insight into the world of civil litigation through unique work at Minnesota Lawyers Mutual and the Olmsted County attorney’s office. Those positions fostered my passion for civil litigation and ingrained in me the vital importance of good communication, diligence, and efficiency. Above all else, these experiences taught me that obtaining good results for clients always starts with fair, honest representation. I am looking forward to integrating lessons learned from these unique experiences into my practice today.”

Jim Krause, Lommen Abdo Attorney

“Jim is an excellent addition to Lommen Abdo, and his clerkship experience will provide Lommen’s clients valuable insight on professional liability and insurance defense matters. We are excited to have Jim join the team.”

Bryan Feldhaus, Lommen Abdo Board Member

Outside of the office, Jim loves enjoying Minnesota’s great outdoors.  When he’s not working, you’re likely to find him enjoying a Minnesota Twins baseball game, running Minneapolis’ Chain of Lakes or fishing one of southeastern Minnesota’s beautiful trout streams.  Jim is also an unapologetically huge Wisconsin Badgers football fan.
