Pattie Garger


Pattie Garger, an attorney at Minnesota Construction Law Services, brings a unique perspective and unwavering dedication to her clients and her practice. Pattie's tenacity stems from an atypical upbringing that defied expectations. As a third-generation American born to migrant farmers, she was raised by her grandmother, for whom English was a second language. From a young age, Pattie shouldered the responsibility of educating and protecting her grandmother. Despite facing obstacles, including time spent in foster care and adoption, she persevered. As the oldest of nine siblings and the first in her family to graduate from high school, she shattered expectations when she successfully completed college, then law school, relocating from Colorado to Minnesota with her three young boys.


From the start of her legal career, Pattie immersed herself in the intricacies of the construction industry. She began by working for a roofing contractor, handling storm damage claims, and later transitioned to managing property damage claims involving fire, water, smoke, mold, and vandalism. Her experience extended to coordinating services with property management companies, providing her with invaluable insights into the challenges faced by restoration contractors, subcontractors, and property managers.


As a respected voice in the industry, Pattie served on the board of a property insurance adjuster association, as the representative of over 400 vendors who provided a plethora of services related to first party property damage insurance claim handling. Additionally, she dedicated over three years to educating insurance professionals through Continuing Education presentations, covering topics related to claim handling and ethics. Pattie's passion for knowledge led her to create and coordinate a continuing education program tailored specifically to address property insurance issues.


A member of both the Minnesota State Bar Association and the Hennepin County Bar Association, Pattie is deeply committed to serving her community. She actively volunteered in the Street Law program through the Minnesota Justice Foundation during law school.  Pattie serves as a volunteer attorney for Volunteer Lawyers Network handling eviction matters and provides limited pro bono services to small businesses through Legal Corp.  Her dedication to advocacy extends beyond her legal practice, as she has been a champion for child advocacy and those who cannot speak for themselves.


With a background rooted in the construction industry, her impassioned, compassionate, tenacious, and determined approach resonates with general contractors throughout Minnesota. Pattie’s unwavering commitment to her clients, combined with her personal journey and profound understanding of the construction industry, make her an invaluable advocate for contractors.
