William Mitchell College of Law, J.D.
Winona State University, B.A., cum laude

I support families and individuals in planning for the future so that they can be present for what matters most during times of loss and transition.

I went to law school with a desire to help people navigate legal matters during challenging times in their lives. I have personally experienced how having a plan in place can allow for less anxiety and overwhelm during times of loss, grief or even trauma.

My father passed away due to early onset Alzheimer’s. He and my stepmom had worked with an attorney in Iowa to make certain there was a plan in place for how things would be handled after he died. Because of this, our family was able to take the time and space needed to grieve and support each other emotionally to process the loss. Instead of focusing on unresolved legal and financial decisions, I was able to spend time working with a grief therapist, celebrating his life, and taking time to support family members and take care of myself.

Since becoming a practicing attorney, I have also completed training through the International End of Life Doula Association (INELDA) as an end-of-life doula and volunteered with Our Lady of Peace Hospice in this capacity. This training and my experience volunteering with individuals at end-of-life has deepened my ability to support clients during end-of-life conversations and planning.

As the owner of Schromen Law, LLC it is my intention that every client feel supported holistically, and our team aims to provide support and guidance beyond just the legal considerations. We also strive to identify the most efficient and cost-effective approach to meeting our clients’ legal needs and goals.

I believe that having legal planning and documents in place is important – not solely for the legal and financial protection they provide, but because they function to make challenging transitions and events easier for the individuals and families going through them.

When you work with Schromen Law, you receive more than just comprehensive and competent legal representation – you also join a community of like-minded individuals who live life authentically and fully.
