Minneapolis (August 31,2002) Minnesota Law & Politics Magazine has released their annual list of Super Lawyers. Congratulations to William Sieben, a Shareholder of Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben, for being recognized among the top three “Super Lawyers” in the state of Minnesota. Commenting on his election, Sieben said, “It’s gratifying to have professional recognition, of course. But it’s especially rewarding that it comes from my colleagues. In any profession, it’s your peers who are your toughest critics.” This year marks the twelfth consecutive year Sieben has been named one of Minnesota’s top attorneys.
The 2002™ Super Lawyers survey was published in the August-September edition of Minnesota Law & Politics Magazine, produced in cooperation with Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine and Twin Cities Business Monthly. Over 18,000 ballots were sent to randomly selected attorneys across Minnesota. Ballot recipients were asked to vote for the best lawyers they have personally observed in action. Those receiving the distinction of Super Lawyers were determined based on the 12,000 responses.
A native of Hastings, Minnesota, Sieben received his Political Science degree with honors from St. Cloud State University in 1973 and a law degree from William Mitchell College of Law in 1977. Before beginning his career in law, he served on Walter Mondale’s Senate Staff, and was a White House Assistant to the Vice President during the Carter Administration. He returned to Minnesota, and in 1980 joined Schwebel & Associates as a personal injury lawyer. In 1983, he became a principal shareholder and the firm was renamed Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben.
