Nathan Severson’s Reviews


Following law school, Nathan moved to Las Vegas to practice at a large firm, where he represented various doctors, insurance companies, and other individuals who were defending a lawsuit. After 7+ years, Nathan decided it was time to come back home to North Dakota. Nathan believes that it is important that a firm serves its client’s interests and needs, and looks forward to hearing from you related to your legal needs.


Educational Background

Following high school, Nathan attended North Dakota State University and received a degree in Political Science with a minor in Business Administration.  After graduation, Nathan worked for a company that served North Dakota and Minnesota with services for house arrest, which gave him insight into the criminal system.  Nathan enrolled in law school at the University of North Dakota School of Law, where he earned his law degree with distinction in 2005.


During law school, Nathan had the honor of arguing a mock appellate case before the North Dakota Supreme Court with his law partner Greg. After his first year of law school, Nathan had the privilege to extern for Judge Kermit Bye in the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. In the summer of 2004, Nathan worked as a summer clerk for a law firm in Fargo. Nathan was accepted into the Order of the Coif (awarded to the top 10% of his graduating class) and the Order of the Barristers (awarded for advocacy skills).


Personal Background

Nathan was born and raised in Cooperstown, North Dakota, where his family owned the local grocery store. Nathan decided to get into business at a young age when he bought the local milk delivery business that delivered to businesses in Cooperstown, Finley and the surrounding area. Nathan’s dad and mom stressed and instilled in him the value of hard work and customer service, along with a sense of community that is important in North Dakota. In his spare time, Nathan enjoys golfing and spending time at the lakes.
