A Historic Firm Founded On Sound Principles

For more than 120 years, we have served the state of South Dakota. Our firm, Christopherson, Anderson, Paulson & Fideler, LLP, was founded in 1894, five years after South Dakota became a state.

Much of our business comes by referral from former or current clients who trust our expertise and guidance to handle their legal matters, whether they are dealing with family law, estate planning and probate or some other legal concern.

One-On-One Partnership Throughout The Process

By design, we are not the largest firm in the area. Structuring our firm purposely in this way makes it possible for us to meet with our clients individually. With us, you will have the benefit of working directly with your attorney throughout your case.

Our firm's traditional one-on-one approach to legal representation is the reason we are still around today. We have never wavered in our commitment to providing comprehensive and customized legal services to the residents of Sioux Falls and the surrounding area.

This designation means we have been recognized by judges and other attorneys for achieving the highest level of professional excellence and ethical practice.
