As 2021 draws to a close, we have some exciting news to share from Upper Midwest Law Center. Not only have we scored huge legal victories this year in our fight for justice and liberty, UMLC has also added another attorney, moved to larger office space and launched a new website and digital marketing effort.
Founded in 2019 by Attorney Doug Seaton, UMLC began modestly with a small staff and limited resources with the sole purpose of protecting rights and liberties of citizens in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest through litigation. And it has succeeded. Because of its diligence and hard work, UMLC has already made a huge difference in the lives of citizens in the region, and donor support is growing. Consequently, UMLC has been able to improve and upsize its infrastructure, and can now tackle more issues, take on new cases, and fight more battles for liberty.
On the personnel front, attorney Greg Joseph joined UMLC in September as Outside Counsel, and will be become a fulltime Trial Attorney next March.
Greg was born in Saint Paul and moved with his family to Colorado when he was in middle school. In 1995, he moved back to Minnesota to attend Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter and William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul.
Greg’s sixteen-year legal career includes substantial litigation experience as a prosecutor, criminal defense attorney and in public policy work. He has recently won voters’ rights cases against the City of Bloomington and the City of Saint Paul before the Minnesota Supreme Court. Greg says of his new position, “I have discovered there is a profound public need to litigate against government overreach, and I am proud to be a part of the Upper Midwest Law Center.”
Greg will be working with Senior Counsel Doug Seaton, Senior Trial Attorney James V.F. Dickey and firm interns to carry out the UMLC mission.
Greg describes himself as a passionate fly fisherman, lifelong learner, baseball fan, and outdoorsman. He lives with his wife and two sons west of the Twin Cities.
Also, in July, UMLC moved to larger offices to accommodate its growing staff and the need for meeting space. Its offices are still in the same building as Minnesota’s Think Tank, the Center of the American Experiment.
Last, but not least, in July UMLC launched a new improved website and implemented a comprehensive digital marketing plan to create ads, analyze traffic, build lists and reach more Minnesotans. As part of this effort, UMLC also added a Facebook account to increase followers and awareness of our organization.
