Denise focuses her practice largely in family law, including such matters as divorce, child custody, child support, maintenance (alimony), parenting time, paternity, and adoption.

In addition to her busy private practice, Denise also serves most of the counties in Northwestern Minnesota as a court-appointed parenting time expeditor, custody evaluator, and early neutral evaluator. She was approved as a qualified neutral under Minnesota Court Rule 114 in 2012.
Prior to coming to BRINK LAWYERS, Denise worked as a law clerk in the 9th Judicial District for the Honorable Donald J. Aandal. Denise and her family have lived in Northwestern Minnesota since 2006.
