Attorney Karolina Hoerl Celebrates 10 Years with Johnson/Turner Legal

Karolina Hoerl, Attorney

A lot can change in 10 years. Karolina Hoerl should know. The past decade saw Karolina progress from an ambitious law clerk to an experienced family law attorney who just landed on the Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” list for the third consecutive year. She also had two children during that time, which gives her extra compassion and empathy for the clients she serves. Over the years, Karolina has helped hundreds of people transition through divorce, custody cases, and other life curveballs. “In spite of the tough situations her clients find themselves in, Karolina is known around the firm as having the happiest clients,” said Erin Turner. “That has a lot to do with Karolina herself.” (Psst—along with Erin, Karolina was named as one of the 2017 Minnesota Top Women Attorneys by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine!)

One thing that hasn’t changed in 10 years? The feeling Karolina gets from being part of the Johnson/Turner team. She was our fourth (!!) employee, and though the firm’s ranks have increased nearly eightfold since then, the warm, supportive, tightknit atmosphere holds strong. “Somehow, even with all the expansions, Johnson/Turner Legal has still been able to maintain this family, close-knit culture. It’s amazing. My coworkers know about my family and my life, and I know about theirs; and we genuinely care so much about each other.”

Speaking of “outside of work”—ten years at Johnson/Turner isn’t the only milestone Karolina is celebrating this year. She’s training for October’s Twin Cities Marathon. While she’s an experienced runner (she was the inspiration behind our annual 5K!), this will be her first attempt at the distance. She will be running the race as an official charity partner with Children’s Hospital and aims to raise money for their intensive care unit. If you see Karolina, please congratulate her on her anniversary. And if you see her at Twin Cities Marathon, please hand her a banana or something. (Just kidding. Sort of.)
