Anne Haaland is a family law attorney at and shareholder of the law firm of Henson & Efron, P.A. She advises clients regarding family law issues such as divorce, custody, parenting time, child support, spousal maintenance, property division, alimony, paternity, prenuptial agreements, and post-decree modifications.  

Ms. Haaland takes the time to listen to her clients to truly understand their circumstances and goals.  Once she understands the facts and objectives, she empowers her clients by helping them understand what their legal options are and helping them choose the best path forward to achieve their goals. From there, Ms. Haaland executes the plan developed with the client, skillfully advocating for the client every step of the way, showing intentionality and an intimate knowledge of the facts with each argument. Family law takes extreme intuitiveness – knowing when and how to press forward with persistence to gain the best possible outcome for your client and their family. With her genuine approach and deep understanding, Ms. Haaland designs creative solutions for complex problems and provides peace of mind for her clients during a challenging time of transition.

Ms. Haaland developed her research and writing skills during her time at the University of South Dakota, where she graduated magna cum laude with her Bachelor of Arts as an English Major. An active member of Phi Beta Kappa at the University, she was also the USD Writing Center’s student director and the SERVE president. She then pursued her Juris Doctor, cum laude, from the University at Buffalo School of Law, graduating from the Civil Litigation Concentration and Family Law Program in 2012. After law school, she was a law clerk in Hennepin County Family Court for nearly three years where she worked on thousands of different family law cases before joining Henson Efron, P.A.

Ms. Haaland has been recognized as a 2020 Up & Coming Attorney Honoree, 2021 & 2022 Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch: Family Law, and Minnesota Super Lawyers – Rising Stars Edition since 2017.

Ms. Haaland is an involved member of the Hennepin County Bar Association’s Family Law Section. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Volunteer Lawyers Network and volunteers for the organization’s Family Law Legal Advice Clinic.
