Breanna Helland practices personal injury, family law, criminal defense, and general law.  She is passionate about serving people who face difficult situations and works hard to achieve the best outcomes for her clients in an efficient manner.   

Prior to joining the firm in 2020, Breanna served as a judicial law clerk.  This allowed her to learn about litigation from behind the bench, giving her unique and valuable insight to better serve her clients.

In law school, Breanna honed her legal skills through various internships, Moot Court, and the Family Law Clinic, where she represented clients in the Twin Cities area.  She taught English in South Korea as a Fulbright Scholar for one year after college.

Outside of the office, Breanna enjoys traveling, reading, and being active outdoors. Breanna and her fiancé, Dr. Derek Goracke of Central Lakes Chiropractic Clinic, live in Alexandria with their French Bulldog, Pippa. Breanna grew up on a farm in South Dakota and is excited to call Alexandria home.
