In honor of Crime Victim Rights Week, the Douglas County Advocacy Office for Someplace Safe has awarded its Certificate of Appreciation to Swenson Lervick attorney Heidi Schultz.
Heidi earned this recognition for her commitment and service to victims of crime in our community. The recognition is well-deserved.

She was appointed by the Minnesota Supreme Court to serve two terms on their Advisory Committee for the Rules of Criminal Procedure. She is a past Douglas County Teen Court judge and has participated as a presenter for the Alexandria Police Department’s Citizen’s Police Academy.
Prior to joining Swenson Lervick, Heidi was an Assistant County Attorney in St. Louis, Olmsted and Douglas counties, where she focused on child protection, criminal prosecution, and juvenile delinquency cases. Congratulations, Heidi!
