Attorney Profile

The managing partner at Lord + Heinlein, Priscilla Lord divides her practice between plaintiff’s personal injury litigation and professional licensure defense. Her firm is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and she represents clients throughout the greater Twin Cities metropolitan area. Ms. Lord has been admitted to practice before all Minnesota state courts since 1980.

A significant portion of Ms. Lord’s practice involves her assisting people who have been harmed due to the negligence or recklessness of other persons or entities. She has worked on a variety of motor vehicle accident claims, including those involving trucks, automobiles, snowmobiles, and motorcycles, and she has also represented victims of dog bites. Early on in her legal career, Ms. Lord represented members of a class action lawsuit against a manufacturer of dangerous silicon breast implants, and some years later she played a significant role in lawsuits against the manufacturer of the dangerous diet product that was popularly known as “fen-phen.” Throughout her career as a personal injury attorney, she has been able to obtain significant compensation for her clients through both jury awards and negotiated settlements.

Ms. Lord also devotes a portion of her caseload to the defense of professionals whose licenses are in jeopardy due to allegations made by their clients. In this regard, she has assisted lawyers, chiropractors, dentists, nurses, psychologists, and members of other professions. Her successful track record in all of her endeavors have earned her a “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo and other honors and awards from her colleagues. A member of the Minnesota Association for Justice, Ms. Lord is a graduate of what used to be known as the Hamline University School of Law.
