Tony Berg was born and raised in St. Paul, MN but spent a good deal of time in the woods and on the water here in Barron County. When he was 11, his parents bought a place on Butternut Lake outside of Barronett, where Tony has since spent hours hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and enjoying nature. He graduated in 1983 from the University of Notre Dame with degrees in psychology and computer science. In 1988, he earned his Juris Doctorate degree at William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, where he returned to graduate Magna Cum Laude from the LLM (master of laws of taxation) program in 1997. He is licensed to practice law in the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota and in the Federal Courts.
