Brenda Denton's Experience

Public Company; 1-10 employees; Law Practice industry

June 2007Present (7 years 4 months)

Brenda Denton accepts cases in Cook, Lake, St. Louis, Carlton, and Pine Counties. Though she has experience in various areas of the law, her main focus remains with family law. The area of family law can be quite complex and the law often changes. It can be very difficult for people to work their way through the sometimes overwhelming court system and the civil process. Family law includes topics such as child support, child custody, single parent’s rights, paternity, divorce (dissolution), legal separation, third-party custody, grandparent’s rights, parenting time (visitation), orders for protection (OFPs), harassment restraining orders, motions to move out of state with a minor child, post-decree(order) motions or modifications, and spousal maintenance. Depending on the complexity of the case, sometimes an individual can represent themselves. However, Ms. Denton suggests always consulting with an attorney beforehand.
Brenda Denton also accepts cases involving non-family law related legal issues, such as landlord/tenant/housing matters, unemployment compensation cases, powers of attorney, drafting of basic wills, and other general civil litigation. She also has experience arguing before the Minnesota Court of Appeals and will take cases to the appellate level depending on the issues presented.
