Our Mankato, Minnesota office houses a team of eight lawyers and twelve support staff who are committed to working for clients who have suffered from a personal injury, wrongful death or medical malpractice. Our attorneys have handled nearly every type of personal injury case – from car and truck accidents and slip and falls to medical malpractice and traumatic brain injury. Personal injury jars your life. At Maschka, Riedy, Ries & Frentz, we help clients recover from unexpected, traumatic life events. Individuals and families rely on us to help them manage day-to-day challenges that result from a personal injury. We achieve justice for our clients so they are free to leave trauma behind and live fully again.
