Schieber joins the Law Office of Richard Nethercut


Thu, Feb 20th, 2014
Posted in Harmony Business Announcements

1982 marks the last time a new attorney began to practice law in Harmony, Minn. That was the year a young Dick Nethercut joined George Frogner and George Plowman in their practice. Not long after, Nethercut found himself the only lawyer in town and remained so for the following 24 years. All of that changed last week when Nethercut dusted off the unused desk in the back corner and welcomed Greg Schieber as the newest addition to his law practice.

Schieber, originally from Caledonia, Minn., graduated from Drake Law School in Des Moines, Iowa last May. More recently he worked at Hammell & Murphy, PLLP in Caledonia.

Schieber has a varied background. He helped milk cows on his uncle’s small dairy farm west of Caledonia until graduating from Caledonia High School in 2004. At the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, he earned a degree in geology. He next took advantage of an opportunity to live and work in Yellowstone National Park as a volunteer with the Student Conservation Association.

Upon his return to the Midwest, Schieber worked as a freelance journalist, most frequently contributing to the Caledonia Argus while simultaneously working on a small vegetable farm near Decorah. Other summers were spent working on a ranch near Cody, Wyo., and as a camp director at Camp UniStar near Cass Lake, Minn.

At Drake University, Schieber took the core foundation of courses useful to a small town general practice attorney. He focused on the area of agricultural law, served as Editor-in-Chief of the Drake Journal of Agricultural Law, and interned at the USDA. He hopes to put his training and interest in agriculture and rural communities to use in Fillmore County, supporting the needs of diverse farming operations and local food enterprises.

When asked why Schieber sought out a position in Harmony, he responded, “I knew I wanted to come back to southeastern Minnesota. Throughout my travels the past 10 years, I discovered no place else could ever feel like home. I’ve spent many weekends biking and camping in the area, and have always been impressed by the vibrant communities, local geography and geology, and quality of life in Fillmore County.

“I’m looking forward to working with my new associate,” said Nethercut, “and am confident he will provide excellent legal advice and valuable services to local residents and businesses.”

Nethercut has no plans to ret .....
