Product Description

Hi, I’m Jess Birken.

I am the owner of Birken Law Office, I help nonprofits and artists solve problems so they can quit worrying and get back to what matters most – The Work. I’m not like most attorneys, I actually have an outgoing personality, and – like you – I like to think outside the box. Most of my clients are passionate and have an entrepreneurial spirit. I’m like that too. My goal is to help you crush it. Getting bogged down in the minutia sucks the joy out of the important work. My clients want to do the work – not the paperwork.

I am also the owner of Single Audit Solutions, where I help people across the country with federal grant management, compliance and audit response.

  • BA, Sociology, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities (2001)
  • JD, Mitchell Hamline School of Law, Magna Cum Laude (2007)
  • MA, Nonprofit Management, Hamline University (2010)
  • Planning Commissioner, City of Mounds View (2014 – 2015)

My Biography
I am the former CEO & Managing Partner at Urban Birken PLLC, a boutique firm that specialized in serving the nonprofit community. I have worked with nonprofit organizations for most of my career.

Before becoming a private practice attorney, I spent four years inside a national nonprofit organization, Pheasants Forever.

I worked my way through law school and had the beginnings of a promising career in criminal law after graduation. However, I quickly realized that going to court is depressing! In court, the toothpaste is out of the tube and you’re just trying to clean up the mess. My colleagues reassured me I’d become callous and get used to the grim reality. But I thought that sounded like a terrible personal outcome and decided I needed to change course. I really missed the nonprofit sector.  As a result, I went back to grad school and earned a Masters in Nonprofit Management. I rejoined the nonprofit sector through my work with Pheasants Forever where my role was a marriage of attorney work and federal grant management and administration.

Since that time, I have run my own firms. I’m now the owner of Birken Law Office a firm designed to help nonprofits and the arts.

My Family
I have two daughters, who are the light of my life. (Well sometimes they can act like little scamps but mostly they are awesome!) We live outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota, near their dad who is amazing and a great friend.

In my free time, I enjoy pretending to be a foodie, science fiction, films, dance music, running and spending time with great friends.

Experience: I just wanted to take a moment to let you know of my experience with Birken Law. Far too often, people are eager to write letters or make a phone call to complain, but I wanted to take the time to write to let you know that I am very pleased with the performance, expertise, and professionalism of Mrs. Birken.
