Biography

Practicing since 1996, DeAnne Dulas has focused her practice in all areas of family law. Recognized as a Rising Star by Minnesota Law and Politics in her early years of practice, she has exceeded that expectation.

DeAnne’s practice encompasses resolution of family court issues through the use of cooperative resolution, litigation and high-conflict mechanisms. DeAnne understands that just as no two families are the same, each process needs to be unique to the individuals and circumstances involved. In addition, DeAnne believes that no one benefits by making the legal process more difficult than it needs to be to resolve the matters at issue.

Similarly, she believes that in those cases where a fair outcome cannot be reached cooperatively, her clients can feel confident in knowing that when litigation and high-conflict resolution is necessary, she will provide them with skillful advice to navigate the difficulties of that situation.

DeAnne’s unwavering loyalty to her clients and tireless commitment to their success has earned her the highest level of respect among lawyers and judges alike.

DeAnne, my thanks for all of your work and expertise. You never failed to inform and often spent time to calm my fears. You very generously guided me through a difficult time and process. Without your help I know I would not have the life I can now look forward to.

Kristin

Thanks DeAnne, you're the best! Thanks for everything, you are the wonderful that has touched my life.

Kristin

Butterflies can't see their wings. They can't see how utterly amazing and beautiful they really are. But everyone else can. I believe you are like that as well. Your humility makes you shine and "fly with grace" in your practice, how you carry yourself, and by the words you choose so wisely. Thank you, DeAnne, for helping me along the way. Using kindness and words of wisdom has helped me let go so I can be free.
