Jim Krause concentrates his practice on civil litigation, professional liability, attorney discipline, insurance defense, insurance coverage, and commercial litigation.

Jim earned his B.A. from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 2017, along with certificates in business, entrepreneurship, and European studies. While 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 brings a unique perspective to Lommen Abdo, having spent the better part of his law school years as a law clerk and claims handler at Minnesota Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company. No stranger to the courtroom, Jim also previously clerked for the Olmsted County Attorney’s Office where he handled a variety of matters for the county’s civil division.

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.
