Karen Grossman

Karen Grossman has experienced first-hand the consequences of self-representation and is committed to providing quality legal counsel that is affordable. She calls her firm Uplifting Legal because, as she has said, “I want to lift people up out of their legal maladies. I want to lift people up so they feel empowered. I want to lift up people who have records and have served their time through expungements so they can get jobs and housing.”

Karen received her Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, from Mitchell Hamline College of Law in January 2018. While at Mitchell Hamline Karen earned the distinguished CALI award in Criminal Procedure and became a Minnesota Rule 114 Qualified Neutral and mediator. Before law school, Karen graduated from Crown College, summa cum laude, with dual bachelor’s degrees in education and the Bible. Karen has decades of experience teaching and running a business.

In her free time, Karen loves to travel with her family and friends. She visited her 50th state on December 7, 2016 where she participated in the 75th National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Commemoration in Hawaii. Other highlights are a six-week tour in Europe with a WWII emphasis, the total solar eclipse in 2017, the Albuquerque Balloon Fest in 2018, and plans for Oberammergau, Germany in 2020. When she is not traveling, Karen enjoys playing competitive board games with her husband of 33 years and two adult children.
