Accounting for your individual needs

At the Engen Law Firm, I offer a wide range of services to businesses throughout Northwood, North Dakota and across the United States. From representation in civil litigation to mediation or arbitration of commercial disputes, from counseling on the formation of a small business to counsel on the day-to-day legal issues that small businesses confront – I bring a personal focus to every client’s matter. Because I worked with a large firm for more than 12 years, I offer the experience, broad knowledge base and resources you would expect from a large law practice with the high level of personal attention normally found at a small law firm.
