Jennifer J. Barry, Nick D. Campanario and Victoria Wanta have joined the staff, which consists of 30 other attorneys in the civil, criminal and public health and human service divisions.

Campanario is joining the civil division. He is a 2001 graduate of New York University School of Law, which he attended after earning a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota.
He clerked for Justice Alan C. Page at the Minnesota Supreme Court and Justice Joan N. Ericksen at the Minnesota Supreme Court and the United States District Court. Campanario, who hails from Duluth, is returning to his hometown after working for law firms in Minneapolis and Chicago.
Wanta, also a Duluthian, is joining the criminal division. She earned dual undergraduate degrees in political science and the sociology of law, criminology and deviance from the University of Minnesota. She went on to the University of St. Thomas School of Law for her juris doctor.
