Sarah Vogel is the former two-term Agricultural Commissioner for North Dakota. Baumstark Braaten Law Partners Beth Baumstark and Sarah Vogel have been working together for years, advocating and fighting for farmers, ranchers and other individuals. We are a boutique law firm, focusing our practice in areas where we have significant experience and expertise. The attorneys at our firm work for farmers and ranchers in the Midwest and on the Northern Plains. We are staunch advocates for landowners and the land.

Though we focus our practice on legal services for farmers, ranchers, and other landowners, we also have significant experience with American Indian law and environmental law, land use issues, and small business matters. We are admitted in several of the tribal courts of North Dakota, and have represented both tribal councils and entities and individual tribal members. Because so many of our clients are impacted by energy development, we have significant experience helping landowners with legal issues related to oil and gas, wind, and coal development.

Our practice has been referred to as "good guy law," and we strive to ensure that it is not only large corporations and governments that receive exceptional representation.


We are experienced and astute litigators, with a reputation for protecting the land and its stewards. We are passionate about what we do, and zealous advocates for our clients. more
