Mediator, Bruckner Mediation
A graduate of Hamline University’s College of Liberal Arts and William Mitchell College of Law, Sherry Ann Bruckner dedicated the first twenty years of her legal career to public interest law. While working with HOME Line, Appalachian Research and Defense Fund of Kentucky and Legal Services of Northwest Minnesota, Sherry advocated for thousands of clients in consumer, education, employment, family, housing, public benefits, and senior legal matters. She persuaded the Minnesota Court of Appeals to reverse district court decisions on two occasions, and successfully briefed the Kentucky Court of Appeals as well.
She now combines her passion for mediation, conflict resolution, and extensive legal experience by providing civil and family mediation and teaching peace building and conflict resolution skills to businesses, organizations, families, and individuals.
Sherry serves on the Minnesota State Bar Association (MSBA) Alternative Dispute Resolution Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, the MSBA High School Mock Trial Advisory Committee, the Seventh Judicial District Ethics Committee and actively volunteers in her community. She has taught numerous continuing legal education courses on substantive poverty law issues and understanding bias.
Biking, hiking, reading, enjoying the beautiful outdoors, and spending time with loved ones also bring her great joy.
