Baillon Thome Jozwiak & Wanta LLP is proud to announce that firm partners Frances Baillon and Joni Thome were once again named to Minnesota Lawyer’s POWER 30 list. For this year’s edition, Minnesota Lawyer focused on “employment lawyers whose mere presence on a case signifies the stakes, who have influenced the direction of the law, whose leadership in the community is pervasive and whose respect within the bar is undeniable.”1  Selections to the POWER 30 are based on careful research, interviews, and case outcomes.

Frances and Joni co-founded Baillon Thome Jozwiak & Wanta LLP in 2011, along with Chris Jozwiak and Shawn Wanta. They are experienced advocates for employees who have been treated unfairly by their employers. They have both successfully argued cases before the Minnesota Supreme Court and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. They’ve been named to the lists of Super Lawyers, Top 50 Minnesota Women Super Lawyers, Top 100 Minnesota Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America.
