Caitlin E. O’Rourke

  • Associate


Elk River, MN





My primary focus is family law, and I take pride in passionately representing both individuals and families with difficult personal matters. I am dedicated to providing a high level of personalized attention to each of my clients with a hands-on approach focused on their individual needs. 

I have been practicing law since 2008 and joined Hess & Jendro Law Office, P.A. in 2015.  I am a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association, Vice President of the 18th District Bar Association, a member of the Elk River Area Chamber of Commerce and a graduate of the Elk River Leadership program. I have volunteered for the Tubman Safety Awareness Program, Volunteer Laws Network (VLN), Wills for Heroes and Wright County Law Library Day.  I live in the Elk River area with my husband and children.  I enjoy playing tennis, spending time outdoors and traveling.
