Why Choose Us

At Wagner Oehler, Ltd., we are mindful that our clients have a number of local attorneys from which to choose for their legal needs. We are honored that so many local families, businesses, and farmers choose to allow us to represent them, and we take our responsibility to them seriously. Our clients entrust us with the protection of the things that are precious to them: their livelihoods, their homes, and most of all, the well-being of their families. We work hard to earn our clients’ confidence, and we are gratified when they refer their friends, neighbors, and colleagues to us. Here are a few of the many reasons that clients choose Wagner Oehler, Ltd.

Rooted in Our Community’s Past

The firm known today as Wagner Oehler, Ltd. has been a fixture in Rochester and the surrounding area of Southeastern Minnesota since 1973. We take pride in the relationships that we build with our clients. After almost 50 years in practice, we are serving the second, and in some cases, the third generation of our original clients’ families.

Part of the secret to our longevity is that we understand what matters to our clients. Our president, Jason Wagner, grew up on a farm and has a deep personal understanding of the issues many of our clients face in their farm business and farm succession planning. All of our attorneys concentrate their practice in areas targeted to the legal needs of our community, including real estate, estate planning and probate, elder law, and business and nonprofit law.

But the primary reason our firm has endured for almost a half-century is that our clients understand that they matter to us. We have known them, their families, and their neighbors for years. To our firm, offering the highest quality legal service isn’t just a professional obligation—it’s a personal one.

Focused on Our Clients’ Future

Wagner Oehler strives to be the first place our clients turn with their legal needs. We are known as pragmatic problem-solvers, but our attention is on more than just solving legal problems in the moment. Building relationships with our clients means understanding their goals for the future. We carefully plan with them to help those goals become a reality, whether that means growing a business, protecting a family’s financial future, or transitioning a family farm to the next generation.

To ensure the continuity of service our clients have come to depend on, our founding partners personally selected our current president and owner, Jason Wagner, to carry on the practice. After working beside them for several years, Jason assumed the leadership of the firm so that we can continue to serve our clients for decades into the future as their needs evolve.

Peace of Mind in the Present

Decades of experience, plus dedication to our clients in the long term, adds up to one thing: peace of mind. A commitment to helping our neighbors rest easy about their legal concerns is the common thread that runs through our practice. Our clients trust that we understand their needs, know how to meet them, and will always put their best interests first—both now and in the years to come.
