Attorney Brian JordeBrian E. Jorde

Managing Lawyer

“I don’t like bullies or those that think because they have more money or connections or lobbyists they can take advantage of others, that is why I became a trial lawyer – to level the playing field everywhere possible one case at a time.”

Jorde has won and settled multi-million dollar cases and has won law changing appeals relating to constitutional and other legal challenges for clients. Practicing in state and federal courts across the country Brian feels most at home in the courtroom.

The possibility of trial is the only thing that seems to sober up huge corporations and insurance companies and if they think you are afraid to try a case or don’t know what you are doing, your client will not get the outcome they deserve

- Brian Jorde

Often in the news and on television for protecting his clients rights and never afraid to take on the toughest cases. Work for the last many years has included representing landowners opposed to eminent domain for private gain and protecting their family interests related to the proposed TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline.

Jorde also brings extensive business experience in real estate development, land issues, and personal entrepreneurship, to Domina Law Group. Jorde was raised in Wayne and Omaha, NE. His undergraduate degree in Philosophy is from Vanderbilt University, and his law school education was at Western Michigan University, Cooley Law School in Lansing, MI.

Prior to joining Domina Law Group, he worked for several years in complex commercial real estate areas. His work included notable projects, including negotiations for sale of property now used for the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, AR. Other major projects included property acquisitions complimentary to the Ambassador Bridge, providing the official NAFTA connection between the U.S. and Canada. He was also involved in environmental issues affecting real estate, and successfully completed a rare orphan oil well cleanup project in Michigan without costs to his clients.

“I am fortunate to love what I do. Does it come at a cost, yes. Does it mean late nights, weekends, and holidays working on legal problems, yes. But righting wrongs and winning never gets old.”
