SIEBEN POLK LAW FIRM
IN MEMORIAM

Michael S. Polk

Michael S. Polk lost his six year battle with cancer on August 28, 2018. Despite his cancer diagnosis of six years ago, Mike continued to stay active in the practice of law, and was unwavering in his determination and spirit to fight this disease until the very end.

Mike graduated from Northfield High School in 1971 and attended Drake University where he graduated with a B.S.B.A. Degree with highest distinction. He then attended William Mitchel College of Law and graduated Cum Laude in January of 1979.

Mike started as a law clerk with the predecessor to the Sieben Polk firm in November of 1976 and lived and practiced in Hastings until the firm moved to Eagan in 2017. Mike was a staunch advocate of individuals and families injured by the negligence of others and particularly of those who were injured and died from asbestos exposure. Early in his career, Mike tried a landmark asbestos products liability case in the early 1980s and was a principal architect in developing the firms asbestos product liability practice which became known as the firm to go to for asbestos victims throughout the state of Minnesota and nationally. Mike was a very accomplished trial lawyer, regarded as one of the best in the State, who was relentless in his pursuit of justice for the injured. He was exacting in his attention to detail, was highly organized and had the tenacity of a junkyard dog and the charm of a prince. Those who have opposed him in trial would describe him as being tough as nails, highly skilled, ethical and a true professional. Mike set the highest standards of himself and expected the highest standards of those he worked with and we all became better lawyers by having worked with him.

Mike was an avid and accomplished golfer and devoted husband and father to his wife Kathy and children Jesse, Lauren and Rachel and to his six grandchildren.

Despite the pain and the physical toll of the cancer, even in his declining condition, he never complained and continued to be interested in how others were doing when they saw him or visited him. He will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of working with him or knowing him as a friend.

A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at Trinity Church, 10658 210th St. W., Lakeville, MN. A visitation will take place on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Trinity Church and one hour prior to the service at the church on Wednesday.
