"Combining resources with Ohnstad Twichell allows our office in Casselton to offer more services than ever before and to connect to expertise in many different areas of the law. Members of the Burgum and the Ohnstad Twichell firms have been friendly competitors for a long time and have had a mutual respect for one another. Now we will be working on the same team to better serve our clients."
