With New Name SiebenCarey Remains Minnesota's Largest Personal Injury Law Firm
Danielle Bird joins SiebenCarey as new workers’ compensation attorney
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Personal injury law firm, SiebenCarey today announced its new name as part of the firm’s strategic rebranding effort now underway. Formerly Sieben, Grose, Von Holtum & Carey, the new SiebenCarey brand reflects the firm’s current leadership and efforts among its 20 attorneys who assist Minnesotans with legal representation when they need it most.
“She has successfully argued appellate cases at several levels, including a case before the Minnesota Supreme Court. Danielle will be a great asset to our firm and serve her clients well in the area of workers’ compensation.”
“SiebenCarey has a rich history protecting the rights of those we serve,” said Jim Carey, president and managing partner of SiebenCarey. “The new brand is a result of our staff and attorneys who work hard every day to help our clients. We’re excited to announce the new name, launch our new logo, update our website (www.knowyourrights.com) and continue our historical service of legal counsel to injured Minnesotans.”
Clint Grose and John Von Holtum first established the firm in Worthington, Minn. In 1960, the founders decided to solely focus on personal injury law cases – one of the first firms in the state to do so. An office in Minneapolis opened in 1965 and Harry Sieben joined the firm in 1969. Other major milestones during the firm’s history include:
- 1971 – Clint Grose wins Minnesota’s first $1 million personal injury verdict
- 1979 – Firm sponsors “Point of Law” on WCCO radio, the first law firm to make a major investment in advertising
- 1983 – Harry Sieben becomes firm president
- 1987 – John Carey merges practice
- 1997 – Attorney Art Kosieradzki wins largest verdict in firm history, $8 million
- 2009 – Jim Carey becomes firm president; Attorney Susan Holden leads court-appointed panel to oversee $36.6 million compensation fund for victims of 35W bridge collapse
- 2012 – Firm celebrates 60 years of service
Today SiebenCarey is the oldest and largest personal injury law practice in Minnesota. The firm has staff and offices in Minneapolis, Duluth, Fairfax and Lakeville.

SiebenCarey also announced the addition of Danielle Bird to the firm as a practicing attorney serving workers’ compensation.

She is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association, Hennepin County Bar Association, member of the American Inns of Court-Douglas Amdahl Chapter and former co-chair of the Workers’ Compensation committee of the MDLA.
“We’re very pleased to add Danielle to the SiebenCarey team,” added Carey. “She has successfully argued appellate cases at several levels, including a case before the Minnesota Supreme Court.
