Greetings, everyone …

I am Lynne Tauer, a paralegal at rb LEGAL in Golden Valley, Minnesota. We specialize in estate planning, probate, small business, and equine law.

  5. I love to travel. We have traveled to Hawaii 10+ times. I would like to go to Tahiti, New Zealand, or take a river cruise down the Danube. A trip on Australia’s Ghan or Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer trains would also be amazing.
