The opportunity to practice law and to do so in Duluth was the perfect combination for Kevin C. Pillsbury.

You’re solving other people’s problems. There’s great responsibility in that.

“I went to law school with the goal of coming here,” the Duluth native says. “Coming home and being here is huge for me. I can help people I know. It matters a lot to be in the place and with the people I love doing the work I love.”

As an attorney, the best outcomes for Pillsbury come when he provides clients peace of mind by helping them find solutions.

“You’re solving other people’s problems. There’s great responsibility in that,” he says. “No matter what the case involves, someone is relying on you—and really counting on you—to help them do it right.”

Pillsbury is a graduate of Hamline University Law School in St. Paul. His legal education included work as a law clerk in the St. Louis County Attorney’s Office and for the chief judge of Minnesota’s Sixth Judicial District, both in Duluth. He is also a graduate of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. He is licensed to practice as an attorney in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the federal courts.  Pillsbury’s work in the community involves volunteering and service on multiple nonprofit boards. In 2019, Pillsbury was named one of Duluth News Tribune’s 20 Under 40.
