How do you view your connection to this region and its communities?

"Vogel is committed to continuing its tradition of providing the best legal services to its clients, while adapting to the demands of our dynamic regional economy," says Vogel Law Firm managing partner Tami Norgard. "We hire the best attorneys, most of whom are from the North Dakota region. We engage and support our communities while providing high-level, specialized legal services. Many of our lawyers coach children's sports, sit on nonprofit boards, serve in the community, and teach classes. We are invested in the communities we serve."


Why do your clients keep coming back?

"Quite a few clients tell us they keep coming back for our coffee," Norgard says. "While we hope there's more to it, we do have great coffee!"


When should people decide that it's time to call a lawyer?

"It's always easier and less expensive to help a client through a difficult situation and guide decision-making, as opposed to trying to undo something after the fact," Norgard said.
