Kari A. Losee

Kari joined Gjesdahl Law, P.C. in 2016.  She is dedicated to helping families resolve their issues and address their changing needs.  Her practice primarily involves adoptions and divorces including: financial issues, parenting terms, visitation schedules, and child support.

Kari recently participated in an elite 8-day Family Law Trial Advocacy program sponsored by the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA). She was one of just 46 attorneys from across the country selected for this training. The program focused on all the skills used in a divorce proceeding and includes working in a simulated courtroom environment. Understanding the complexities of a trial helps lawyers to become more influential advocates, both in and out of the courtroom.

Kari is married and has two young children.
