They focused on client successes (not their own).
They helped our clients accomplish goals.

While Lauren Nuffort, Cameron Kelly and Jesse Beier may have different practices, they share a philosophy of the “client comes first” and thrive on solving legal challenges. Lommen Abdo is proud to have them join the rank of shareholder. Not only are they smart, creative and hardworking, they are also great human beings with lives outside the law – someone you can feel comfortable with when you need a lawyer. Let us share a little bit more about each of them:
Cameron Kelly provides personalized planning for individuals and businesses in Wisconsin and Minnesota. He assists clients with comprehensive estate planning, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, health care directives and living wills. He also has a special interest in the estate, gift, and income taxation of estates and trusts and obtained an LLM in Estate Planning from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago while working at Lommen Abdo. In addition to estate planning, Cameron works with business owners from formation to business succession. He is certified as a Real Property Specialist by the Minnesota State Bar Association. Residing his entire life in Minnesota, Cameron now offices in Hudson but lives with his wife, daughter and two sons in Stillwater, Minnesota. He is active in the community, including volunteering as a member of the City of Stillwater Planning Commission, at his church and several non-profit corporations, including Students Taking Renewed Interest in the Value of Education (S.T.R.I.V.E.) and providing legal services to cancer patients through Cancer Legal Line, receiving their Volunteer Attorney of the Year award in 2015.
