HIBBING/VIRGINIA — Darrold Persson of Trenti Law Firm has been included in both the 2021 and 2022 editions of The Best Lawyers in America. Best Lawyers has published its peer-reviewed annual list since 1983.
“Best Lawyers was founded in 1981 with the purpose of highlighting the extraordinary accomplishments of those in the legal profession. After three decades, we are proud to continue to serve as the most reliable, unbiased source of legal referrals worldwide,” said CEO Phillip Greer.
Lawyers listed in The Best Lawyers in America are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing.
According to Trenti Law Firm’s website, “Darrold [Persson] is a trial lawyer with 44 years of experience. He practiced with the law firm of Matonich and Persson in Hibbing from 1977 to 2017, at which time he joined the Trenti Law Firm as ‘Of Counsel.’

Over the years he has handled or tried hundreds of personal injury cases including car accidents, premises liability, products liability, defamation and professional malpractice obtaining verdicts and settlements, many of which exceeded one million dollars.

Trenti Law Firm congratulates Persson on this honor and also acknowledges his two previous selections this year. Persson was named Best Lawyers’ Lawyer of the Year in Plaintiff’s Personal Injury-Duluth Area and was one of only two Minnesota lawyers to be selected as Best Lawyers’ Lawyer of the Year in Plaintiff’s Personal Injury-Midwest States.
