Jennifer R. Lewis Kannegieter

As the founder of Lewis Kannegieter Law, Ltd., I’m Jennifer R. Lewis Kannegieter, and I’m driven by a lifelong passion for making a positive impact in people’s lives through the law. After graduating from law school in 2007, I started my own law practice right here in Monticello, where I’ve had the privilege of assisting clients with a wide range of legal matters.

Empathy at the Core

At the heart of my practice lies a belief in the power of empathy and understanding. I recognize that legal issues, particularly those involving family and legacy, can evoke complex emotions and uncertainty. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to create a welcoming and supportive environment for my clients—one where they feel empowered to make decisions with confidence and clarity. Your legal journey should be a positive experience, and I’m here to guide you through it.

Author and Advocate

Throughout my career, I’ve authored several books on estate planning, including the Total Estate Plan Organizer, designed to simplify the planning process for individuals and families alike. My commitment to providing accessible and comprehensive resources underscores my dedication to helping clients navigate their legal affairs with ease and understanding.

Family-Centered Approach

I reside in Monticello, Minnesota with my husband, two sons, and our dogs. Together we enjoy visiting our cabin and hiking in state parks. To me, the importance of family is more than a business motto; it is a way of life. I maintain a flexible schedule to maximize time with my sons and family. I understand firsthand the importance of family and the need to protect what matters most. My experiences as both a legal professional and a family-oriented individual have shaped my approach to serving clients.

Community Engagement

Beyond my legal practice, I’m deeply involved in the Monticello community. I have been a member of the Monticello Women of Today since 2008. Once my children started school I became active with the Parent Teacher Organizations, often holding board positions and chairing fundraisers. I was honored to serve on the Monticello School Board 2018-2022. I began volunteering at the Monticello Help Center with my children in 2023. I am an adult leader for Scouts BSA in Monticello Troop 270 and Pack 272.

Guiding clients through life’s legal challenges isn’t just a job for me—it’s my calling. I’m here to provide you with the guidance, support, and experience you need to navigate the complexities of the legal system with confidence and peace of mind. Let’s embark on this journey together.
