Nathan Severson

Nathan Severson helps people who have been catastrophically injured through the fault of others.

As a founding shareholder and personal injury/insurance attorney for SW&L Attorneys, Nathan fights for his clients, who are faced with making claims against big corporations and/or insurance companies unwilling to pay full and fair compensation for the derailing of the injured party’s life. Nathan refuses to be intimidated by the other side and doesn’t back down in his search for justice for his clients.

What Made Nathan Want to Help Injured People

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 injuring someone. After 7+ years, Nathan decided it was time to come back home to North Dakota and help people who have been injured, rather than continue to use his abilities to help those who caused injury and avoid responsibility. One advantage Nathan’s experience in Las Vegas provided him, is he was able to see the “tricks of the trade” used by insurance companies to avoid paying for damages caused by their insureds.

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 judicial 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.
