We are staunch advocates for our clients and act quickly to produce positive resolutions when you have been injured due to someone else's negligent or reckless behavior.

Our mission:
Herrick Law Office, S.C. recognizes that there is more involved in a personal injury case than just the recovery of money. We understand that a serious personal injury can impact every aspect of the accident victim's life, and that situation cannot be ignored during the legal process. Many issues arise other than how much the insurance company will pay, such as how to deal with unpaid medical expenses, finding the specialized help that may be necessary for medical and economic problems due to the accident, dealing with medical insurance carriers that pay medical bills and then want reimbursement from the client's recovery, as well as many other concerns. During the initial consultation, we cover all of these items with those who seek our help. Our motto - Our clients are our main concern - is truly our mission statement in representing people in personal injury cases.

Our focus:
At Herrick Law Office, S.C., our practice solely focuses on personal injury cases. We have hands-on experience handling lawsuits in state, federal and appellate courts throughout Wisconsin. We work closely with clients to keep them informed of any changes in their claims and frequently reach settlements because we prepare each case to go to trial if need be.

Our reputation:
Our law firm is known for providing high-quality representation to injured individuals when they need it most. We often receive referrals from past clients and other legal professionals who speak highly of our personal service and ability to produce positive results. James Herrick is AV Preeminent Peer Review RatedSM by Martindale-Hubbell, and our firm is included in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.
