Ronald E. Berglund, Attorney at Law

Practice Areas

  • Estate Planning
  • Elder Law
  • Real Estate
  • Small Business
  • Family Law

Ron has observed that many, if not most, of his friends and acquaintances have never “gotten around to” drafting and executing these critically important documents. “Wills, powers of attorney, TODDS and health care directives are so inexpensive and easy to do that there is no excuse for not taking care of it,” Ron says. Ron believes that everyone owes it to him/herself to get these documents done properly to insure that their assets are distributed according to heir wishes and their family is assured that everything is in order. “We work so hard all of our lives that we need to make sure all of this effort has not been expended in vain” Ron reminds us.

Ron has recently “streamlined” his practice and is dedicating the next decade to servicing the needs of his fellow “Baby Boomers”. Ron’s practice now focuses on working with seniors to help them with estate planning including the drafting of wills, trusts, powers of attorney, real estate transfers and other important documents. Ron has observed that many, if not most, of his friends and acquaintances have never “gotten around to” drafting and executing these critically important documents. “Wills, powers of attorney, TODDS and health care directives are so inexpensive and easy to do that there is no excuse for not taking care of it,” Ron says.

Non Profit Organization

In 2012, Ron established an NPO d/b/a “Computers without Borders” (“CWB”). The mission of CWB is to procure and refurbish used computers and monitors, after which the equipment will be shipped to impoverished schools in the USA and the developing world. Ten percent of all legal fees Ron receives in 2014 will be donated to the mission of CWB.

Mission

It is my mission to conveniently provide Minnesota residents with estate planning, elder law, real estate, family law and small business knowledge and services that fulfill their needs at the right price. In furtherance of my mission, I regularly conduct estate planning seminars in the Minneapolis area. These seminars help prospects understand the key terms and documents of estate planning and guide them through the pitfalls and critical considerations. I teach attendees about procrastination and how to overcome it, and I encourage and motivate the prospects to take immediate action and get started NOW. I recently published a book available at Amazon.com entitled Estate Planning by Ronald Berglund: Your Guide to Minnesota Law Relating to Probate, Trusts and Estates.

I believe that my caring, experience, knowledge and enthusiasm will help educate, and inspire prospects. My affordable services will provide my clients with the important documents they need to ensure their well-being and peace of mind in the future as well as the disposition of their assets in the manner they see fit. Also important is my guidance to minimize the costs, delays and problems inherent in the field (i.e., probate, taxes, undue influence, etc.). My niche is “the 99%” who I believe for the most part have been ignored by the legal community (which focuses primarily on the 1% or the wealthy client). By treating Minnesotans with average and even small estates as “the most important people in the world” I can educate them, inspire them, motivate them, and encourage them to get “all of their ducks in a row”. I can help them enrich their lives and help assure the smooth transition of their wealth and assets- however modest their estate may be—at a cost significantly lower than any law firm due to my extremely low overhead. I strive to always make customer service my number one priority.
