  • Attorney Spotlight: Corey Bronczyk
    April 12, 2024
    What inspired you to become an attorney, and how did you choose your specific field of law?  I started out in construction when I was a kid working with my dad, building log homes. After that, I built residential homes in the Bemidji, MN area, and ultimately decided to get my degree in Construction Management. During college I worked for a general contractor in Fargo doing mostly commercial remodel and tenant improvement work, and then worked for an owner’s representative firm doing MnSCU college campus work. During that time I had to deal with a number of disputes, and had to talk to a construction lawyer for the first time. From there, I decided to go to law school with the intention of becoming a construction lawyer. With my background and passion for all things construction, it was a natural progression. I am passionate about the construction industry, and I am right where I belong.

    Are you involved in any legal or community organizations? How does this involvement contribute to your practice? I have the distinct pleasure of being a member of the Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association, and I have also been a committee member for the Minnesota Construction Association for a couple of years now, and I believe that both of these distinct non-profit groups have given me insight into what my fellow attorneys are involved with legally, as well as a more nuanced understanding of what issues contractors navigate in today’s ever-changing legal landscape.
