TSR Partners Rich Ruohonen and Nate Bjerke Selected for The Power 30
We are excited to announce that two of our partners were selected for The Power 30: Personal Injury Law. Nate Bjerke and Rich Ruohonen were chosen for the inaugural edition of this list, that was created by Saint Paul’s legal ledger, Minnesota Lawyer.
Rich Ruohonen is an award-winning attorney who has been voted a Minnesota Super Lawyers every year since 2003. He was twice selected as Minnesota Lawyer Attorney of the Year and is also a former president of the Minnesota Association for Justice. Rich tried the first COVID civil trial in the State of Minnesota in September 2020 and received a jury award of over $250,000.
Rich has helped numerous accident victims secure compensation, including a recovery of $3 million for a nurse who suffered a brain injury in a semi-truck crash.
Nate Bjerke has won personal injury cases all over the nation and has been selected a Top 100 Super Lawyer each year since 2014. Nate is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates and The National Trial Lawyers Top 100. Nate also gives lectures and teaches trial practice skills to lawyers all over the nation.
Bjerke’s profile on the Minnesota Lawyer website notes that his career trajectory sounds like a plot in one of John Grisham’s novels.
As this Power Series advertisement says, “Those who know us are not surprised!”
Congratulations Rich and Nate on receiving this fantastic award!
