    Attorney Profile

    Joy N. Beitzel is a Staff Attorney at Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid, where she focuses her practice on divorce and other family law matters. Her clients come primarily from Hennepin County. Fluent in Spanish, Ms. Beitzel has been admitted to practice before all Minnesota state courts since 2014.

    The majority of Ms. Beitzel's practice involved the representation of people whose marriages are coming to an end. In that regard, she provides advice and counsel on a variety of divorce-related legal issues, including child custody and visitation, the division of marital assets and debts, and spousal and child support. A forceful courtroom advocate when litigation is necessary or advisable, Ms. Beitzel often helps clients attempt to reach an accord on these matters through the negotiation of comprehensive settlement agreements. In addition to her matrimonial caseload, Ms. Beitzel works with clients who have already had their marriages legally dissolved and who are now petitioning the court for the enforcement of or modifications to existing support or parenting orders, and she has also handled paternity actions.

    As an undergraduate, Ms. Beitzel attended Wheaton College in Illinois, where she majored in international relations and Spanish and earned a Bachelor of Arts summa cum laude in 2010. During college, she spent several months in Honduras, where she researched land titles and other property rights. Ms. Beitzel then pursued her legal education at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minneapolis, and she was a certified student attorney with the Ramsey County Attorney's Office and clerked for Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services before being awarded her Juris Doctor cum laude in 2014.
