Attorney Profile

Tifanne Wolter joined Henningson & Snoxell, Ltd., in April 2016, and since that time, she has focused her practice exclusively on family law matters, representing clients throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area from the firm’s office in Maple Grove, Minnesota. She attended Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, where she studied political science and sociology and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1999. 

Ms. Wolter remained in the state for her legal education at what was then known as Hamline University Law School, and she was trained in dispute resolution and received a certificate for that topic before graduating with her Juris Doctor in 2002. She then worked for two area legal aid providers, where she handled a variety of matters for her clients, including family law, landlord-tenant disputes, bankruptcy and unemployment compensation before leaving for private practice in November 2005. Ms. Wolter has been admitted to practice before all Minnesota state courts since 2002.

Many of Ms. Wolter’s clients are people who are going through a divorce and who need assistance in dealing with such legal issues as parenting time, alimony, child support and the division of marital property. Her extensive training in mediation and collaborative law often allows her to help them avoid a protracted courtroom battle by coming to an accord on those matters through the use of those alternative dispute resolution methods. In addition to her matrimonial practice, Ms. Wolter has represented people who have been the victim of domestic violence and who are seeking orders of protection from the court, and she has also handled cases involving paternity establishment and disputes. She holds a perfect 10.0 “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo and has lectured extensively on family law topics.
