Meet Michael!

Meet Michael!

We are thrilled to announce that a bright, compassionate and experienced associate attorney joined our staff recently.  Michael’s gifts and experience in estate planning, estate administration, business succession planning, asset protection and real estate have made a wonderful addition to our team.

About Michael Teeter:

What do you like to do for fun? 
My wife and I have a 1-year-old son which means that our options are quite limited at this point. We generally go out for a movie a couple of times a month. More often then not though, you will find us on a trip to a store together on the weekends. 

What is your experience/qualifications? 
I went to Bethel University for undergrad and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Business and Political Science.

I went to the University of St. Thomas School of Law and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Juris Doctor.

After I got out of law school I spent a year as a contract attorney and acouple years as a reference attorney at Thomson Reuters in Eagan. I always wanted to be an Estate and Elder Law attorney, however, it wasn't until about 6 years ago that I landed at Stier Law Offices where that became a possibility. After 5 years at Stier Law Offices I moved to Safe Harbor Estate Law. 

Why do you like about estate and elder law? 
I enjoy the clients and trying to solve problems that don't appear on the surface to be complex, but underneath the surface are quite complex. 

Interview on Mary Hanson Show

Interview on Mary Hanson Show

On Monday, January 7th, Margaret was interviewed by Mary Hanson for her cable TV show, "The Mary Hanson Show." Mary has the longest running independent cable TV show in the country.

With all that experience, Mary is great at what she does!  She asked Margaret questions many people have about elder law, paying for long term care, the documents everyone needs, etc. Mary was very interested to learn about the relatively new way of protecting assets by using an annuity acceptable to Medical Assistance.

The show is expected to air on Channel 6 and be released on Youtube this spring. "The Mary Hanson Show" has over 2 million cable viewers. Margaret was honoured to be a guest on the show and our hope is that the segment truly helps people in need of this information.

Why the New Brand Name?

First, I want the firm name to better communicate both what we do to help people, and how our clients feel after we are done. We are still helping families protect what is most important to them in the storms of life. Once we are done, clients often tell us how relieved they are, how much better they are sleeping at night, and how much they appreciate having us alongside them.

Why change the name now?
I have been wanting to update the firm name for awhile, but other matters were more pressing. I am thrilled that our growing firm now has a team in place that has the skills and time to roll out the new Safe Harbor Estate Law name. 

One more happy reason is that I married John Larson on October 6, 2017! I decided to drop the last name Kyle, and return to my maiden name Barrett, which is the name I originally practiced law under starting in 1991.
