A compassionate and friendly family law attorney who can also be a determined advocate for clients and their children, Bonnie P. Humphrey is the founder of Humphrey Law Office, P. C. Her firm is located in Minot, North Dakota, and she accepts clients throughout North Dakota as well as Minnesota. For three decades, she has been helping families navigate complex legal issues such as:

She is admitted to practice in the state courts of Minnesota and North Dakota as well as the federal courts of North Dakota.

With a certification in mediation, Ms. Humphrey understands that mediation can benefit clients facing legal concerns in many ways. She guides conversations and helps both parties come to an agreement that serves children in the most productive way possible when they are in tough situations. In the mediation process, she serves as a neutral, carefully balancing the needs of everyone involved.

Ms. Humphrey first served as a child support attorney at the Regional Child Support Enforcement Unit.
