Tara shares a keen sense of insight and enthusiasm for building TTLO Law’s service team and operations. Guided by her firsthand experience with practicing law, Tara’s legal practice management style is steeped in compassionate advocacy; each client’s satisfaction matters significantly to her as does the well-being of the firm’s attorneys, staff, and our greater community.
Marked by a welcome return to the construction industry, Tara’s arrival at TTLO Law followed a nontraditional path. Prior to graduating from law school, Tara both managed and served as an inside sales representative at an independent manufacturers’ agency for commercial hardware lines. Tara’s twelve years of experience in representing numerous manufacturers in the Upper Midwest – serving architects to end users – helped her hone skills she believes equally important to the practice of law: impeccable client service; creative problem solving; and fierce negotiation. Tara relied on these skills, first as a family law attorney at a prominent Minneapolis firm, then as that firm’s chief operating officer for several years, before joining TTLO Law in 2017.
In her role as TTLO Law’s office manager, Tara focuses on providing exceptional value to clients while strengthening all aspects of the firm’s business and strategic operations, including human resources, finance, information technology, marketing, and facilities. Tara leads with curiosity and agility, striving for innovative solutions and thriving as an agent of change.
Tara serves as co-chair of the Alternative Legal Careers Affinity Group of Minnesota Women Lawyers. She is also an active member of the Association of Legal Administrators – Minnesota Chapter and enjoys editing the organization’s bimonthly newsletter. Tara recently completed the acclaimed Law Firm Leadership training program of the Hennepin County Bar Association.
As a member of Perpich Center for Arts Education’s inaugural class, Tara is a classically trained pianist and avid supporter of the Arts.
