At Meshbesher & Spence, Pam’s practice is focused exclusively on representing injured individuals and families involved in wrongful death cases. Pam passionately pursues damages for injured plaintiffs and prides herself on providing first class representation to those who come to her seeking justice.
Pam is a seasoned and talented trial attorney who has practiced law at Meshbesher & Spence for over 15 years. Pam distinguished herself early in her career as co-counsel in obtaining some of the largest verdicts in Minnesota history. In 2004, she was recognized by Minnesota Lawyer as one of fifteen “Up-and-Coming Attorneys.” She continues to be a major player in Minnesota law.
Pam is not, however, just about big cases. Pam helps many people with non-disabling injuries that adversely affect their quality of life. She has experience in a wide range of cases including car and truck collisions, dog bites, products liability, motorcycle collisions, medical malpractice, and insurance matters such as no-fault, underinsured and uninsured motorist coverage.
Pam has a particular proficiency in the medical complexities of brain and spine injuries, burns, orthopedic injuries, amputations, and other serious injuries. Most importantly, however, she understands the value of patience, communication and compassion in what is often the most physically and emotionally testing times in her clients’ lives.
Pam is a native Minnesotan and her stout work ethic is obviously due to her long lineage of Stearns County farming families. When she’s not practicing law, Pam enjoys traveling, working out, reading, attending concerts, walking around the Minneapolis chain of lakes, and dining at local restaurants.
