As a seasoned District Court Judge in Anoka County, Dan O’Fallon brings his extensive decision making training and experience to the arbitration setting.
In 2010, I became a Minnesota State District Court Judge in Anoka County. In Anoka County, all judges handle all types of cases, a new rotation each week. Family and civil cases were blocked, and in my 9 years on the bench, I presided over 12 civil jury trials and multiple civil and family trials and substantive hearings. Each case was a learning experience.
I took pride in diligently preparing each case, hearing the case, meticulously evaluating the evidence, and producing timely and thorough orders and decisions. I was blessed with excellent law clerks during that time, and we educated each other in the substantive law of each case and the act of order writing.
As a carry over from private practice, I did my best to master the facts, make abundant factual findings, and apply the law to the facts in a timely and thorough fashion
