She will be working at Sillers, Laaveg & Wenzel in Langdon.

Breyer is originally from Langdon. She and her family lived in Langdon then moved to their farm outside of Wales. Breyer is a 2005 graduate of LAHS.

Breyer comes to Langdon with some impressive experience under her belt. She’s been a licensed attorney in the State of North Dakota since 2013. Breyer graduated with her Juris Doctor in 2013 from UND, and in January of 2014, she started working as an assistant state’s attorney in McHenry County. She was elected State’s Attorney later that year, a position that she held until her resignation in June 2016.

While in the State’s Attorney’s office, she prosecuted all criminal offenses (infractions, misdemeanors, felonies) and juvenile cases in the county. She also advised county officials while working in this capacity. Breyer said, “I appeared on behalf of the State of North Dakota for child support orders to show causes. While in this office I participated on behalf of the State in many jury and bench trials and argued cases in front of the North Dakota Supreme Court.”

She also states that in May of 2016, she began working at Einarson Law Office, P.C. Einarson reached out to Breyer and wanted her to work at the new office in Cavalier. Breyer accepted because she was interested in practicing in a new area of law, specifically, family law. While at Einarson’s office, Breyer worked through August of 2017, practicing mainly in family law and some estate planning.

Breyer came to Langdon after attorney Quentin Wenzel mentioned to her earlier this year that their office was looking for another attorney.  Breyer shared, “I have worked with Tracy and Quentin in the past and knew Cameron and thought I would be a good fit at this office.”

When asked about her career goals, Breyer responded, “I would like to continue to practice in the area of family law. I am also interested in returning to the field of prosecution as I really enjoyed this field of law.”

While Sillers, Laaveg & Wenzel have taken on another attorney to help with the already abundant legal services they provide, including but not limited to family law, criminal defense, property, and other various civil matters, no one from the office has resigned or retired. Four attorneys, including Breyer, are ready and willing to provide any legal services the citizens of Cavalier County may need. You can contact her at 701-256-3717.
