During her clerkship she gained valuable insight into a wide breadth of family law cases as well as a refined sense of the inner workings of the court. After her time with Judge Swenson Shaina spent a year at a private family firm before joining Rogness & Field.

Before law school, and as a member of AmeriCorps, Shaina helped to provide legal services to victims of domestic abuse as they negotiated the legal system.  Earlier, as a volunteer in Ramsey County, Shaina assisted pro se litigants navigate legal issues in the housing and conciliation court.
