Chelsea Barr is a family law attorney with a desire to help families navigate some of the most stressful and sensitive times of their lives.

Chelsea graduated magna cum laude from Minnesota State University, Mankato. During her undergraduate studies, she interned at the Domestic Violence Unit of the Niagara Falls Police Department. Chelsea earned her J.D. from the University of St. Thomas School of Law. During law school, she worked as a certified student attorney at the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office. She participated in the Immigration Appellate Clinic, representing individuals in their immigration appeals. Chelsea also served as a senior editor for the Journal of Law and Public Policy.

After graduating, Chelsea worked in the legal department of an international corporation, then clerked for a criminal judge in the Fourth Judicial District Court. As a judicial law clerk, Chelsea worked closely with the judge on sensitive legal issues in and out of the courtroom. This experience has given her a unique advantage as she has seen many cases from the Court’s perspective.
