How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I primarily practice in the field of employment law because of a desire to assist those wronged at work and a series of past successes in that field.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Series of successes, training from a Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, and graduate Certificate in Dispute Resolution.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We work with you to get you what you want. At this firm, it is not about what the attorney wants, but what the client wants. Therefore, our policy is the following:

Relentless - We never give up. That is, we don't win unless you do. We work tirelessly to make you happy. It is our goal to make your life better, and we will do everything we can to help you realize your goals whether in court or in mediation. We fight because we know that is what you need.

Respectful - We know the difficulty of pursuing a matter in court. Many do not understand what their clients go through, and many don't care. We want you to feel at home, and to know that we're on your team. Because you are our client, we will do everything to make you feel comfortable.

Results - We will evaluate your goals holistically, providing honest and realistic recommendations. If we believe you have a better opportunity to meet your goals in mediation, we will suggest mediation rather than court. We will push alternative dispute resolution when it is most beneficial. At the same time, we do not back down from anyone. Accordingly, we will pursue the matter in court, if it is in your best interests.
