Our Team

Our firm operates differently than most firms. Our office and staff are located in Lake Benton, Minnesota, while Melanie Boes is in the metro. The attorney at Pluto Boes Legal will travel on rare occasions when someone is not able to travel. We have two office spaces located in St Anthony, MN and Lake Benton, MN which serve as a great opportunity to meet with you face to face.

At this time with COVID-19 our offices are closed and we are doing everything via phone conference/email. Thank you for understanding!
