Kevin Sieben is a third generation lawyer in the Sieben family from Hastings, Minnesota. From a family steeped in law and politics for over 100 years, Kevin Sieben dedicates his practice to defending those accused.
“Nothing is more important than protecting our liberties and I have dedicated my life to doing that.”
A graduate of St. John’s University and William Mitchell College of Law, Sieben has worked in Washington, D.C. for Congressman Bill Luther and he has managed legislative campaigns.
Kevin Sieben’s practice has taken him to the four corners of the state representing the accused.

His father, Bill Sieben, is a prominent personal injury attorney (Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben). His mother, Joyce, a former educator, is active on the Hastings Public Schools Foundation.

A Note From Kevin…
Being accused of a crime creates great hardship, not only for a defendant, but for the family as well. I not only try to solve problems for those accused, but assist in helping each family cope with the collateral problems associated with accusations.
