Frances A. Bates joined Falsani, Balmer, Peterson & Balmer. Founded in 1975, the law firm concentrates their practice on helping people with personal injury, workers’ compensation and Social Security disability claims in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.

A Superior native, Bates graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison and Mitchell Hamline School of Law.

She is a member of the Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers, the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives and the Minnesota Bar Association.

“We are really fortunate to have found a new lawyer with strong local ties, an excellent law school background and two years of judicial law clerk experience,” Bob Falsani said.
