Beth L. LaCanne

Attorney

For nearly 15 years, Beth was a paralegal where she developed broad legal knowledge and litigation skills in the areas of personal injury, medical malpractice, employment law, health law, and professional licensure. Although she was a successful and well-respected paralegal, her colleagues in Mayo Clinic’s Legal Department recognized her untapped ability and encouraged Beth to pursue her dream of becoming an attorney.

During law school, she clerked for the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office in the Civil Division, interned with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, and was an Associate Editor of the Hamline Law Review. After law school, Beth clerked in the Fourth Judicial District for the Honorable Diane B. Bratvold (prior to her appointment to the Court of Appeals) and the Honorable Ivy S. Bernhardson.

Beth has obtained summary judgment on several cases through her exceptional research and writing skills. She was also a significant contributor to the briefing for Emer’s Camper Corral, LLC v. Alderman which established legal precedent in the area of insurance agent liability in Wisconsin. Her adaptability and top-notch research skills allow her to quickly develop an understanding of any area of law that is put before her. She represents clients on a wide array of matters, including employment, personal injury, liquor liability, defamation, professional liability, and construction defect.

In her free time, Beth likes to stay active, whether it be running, biking, kayaking, camping, playing volleyball or searching the countryside for historical sites and buildings.

My Philosophy

My philosophy is to work closely with my client to identify a desirable outcome appropriate for the circumstances of the case. With that goal in mind, I work collaboratively with the client to achieve that goal to the best of my ability.
