Firm Overview

Chrastil and Steinberg, P.L.L.P., prides itself on the professional, effective and personal service that it provides to its clients. Established in 1983, the firm has successfully represented hundreds of clients in labor and employment, personal injury, small business, juvenile and other legal areas.

We are a litigation firm practicing primarily in the Minnesota trial and appellate courts, and the federal trial and appellate courts with jurisdiction in Minnesota. We also routinely are involved in administrative forums and arbitration proceedings.

Although court litigation is the touchstone of our practice, it is our policy to explore alternatives to litigation if warranted in a particular case. We recognize that litigation can be burdensome to a client, both financially and emotionally, and that alternatives to contested trials, such as early settlement discussions or mediation, can be of benefit to our clients in certain cases. We remain focused not on litigating for litigation's sake, but on what outcome ultimately will be in the best interests of each of our clients.

Over twenty years, we have represented clients in a wide variety of legal matters. Although our practice primarily consists of all types of labor and employment cases and personal injury claims, we have significant expertise in matters relating to juvenile law, workers' compensation law and family law.

As part of our practice, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide effective legal services with respect to most of the routine legal matters frequently requested by our clients such as the drafting of wills, residential real estate transactions or representation with regard to driving tickets and driving offenses. We strive to be a full-service legal firm for our clients, but we accept cases only in matters where we can provide the highest quality and most cost-effective representation.
