There's a new attorney in town, but he's already a familiar face to the clients of the Shoemaker & Ziegler law firm.

Josh Haugen, who graduated from the University of North Dakota law school in Grand Forks this past May, had worked as an intern at the Detroit Lakes law firm before he completed the requirements for his legal degree and passed the bar exam this summer.


"I've known Jim Shoemaker for 12 years," Haugen said. "My wife Nicole is Jim's stepdaughter."
