Karli J. Viher
Karli has been with the Goodsell Oviatt Litigation Team since 2022. Having previously worked as a Legal Assistant at the Firm, Karli returned as a Summer Intern after completing her first year of law school at the University of South Dakota Knudson School of Law.

She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Justice Studies from Arizona State University where she held leadership roles in various extracurricular activities. As Chapter President of Alpha Phi at Arizona State University, she supported and supervised 7 executive departments and 300 members, collaborated with ASU faculty and organizations, and built community relations through volunteer work at numerous agencies. Additionally, for Alpha Phi, she was Vice-President of Marketing and Director of Recruitment.

Karli will be returning to the University of South Dakota Knudson School of Law in the Fall, where she will continue working towards her Juris Doctor degree. While continuing her studies, Karli will also be dedicating her time as a Knudson School of Law Student Ambassador, working as a Graduate Assistant for the Admissions and Marketing Department of the law school, and participating as a member of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Team.

For relaxation and fun, wake surfing with her family at the lake and snowboarding give balance to a very busy and goal orientated life.

The combination of these many academic, work, volunteering, and personal experiences, contribute to Karli’s ability to be a good listener and client advocate. Karli says that the favorite thing about her job day-to-day is “knowing that I am helping to make a difference in someone’s life.”
