Clay describes the firm’s philosophy as:

“My goal was never to be just another lawyer in a big law firm, or even to create another big law firm. Conversely, as the founder of Dakota Law Firm, Prof. L.L.C., I want every client to be more than a case file number—I want Dakota Law Firm to be a trusted member of our clients’ personal and family’s estate/business teams for multiple generations. That said, I am extremely proud of the clients we have served, and continue to serve. Whether we are working with one of our high-net worth estate planning clients, one of our many business owner clients, or helping one of the many mediation clients through a dispute, our team’s goal will continually be to earn every client’s respect and loyalty as we help them achieve their goal(s). On behalf of the Dakota Law Firm team–Thank you to all of our clients!” Clay A. Anderson
