  • Steven Thomas Botzau

    I highly recommend Frank Parise as an attorney in Kenosha and southeastern Wisconsin. I have known Frank for approximately 20 years and have worked on personal injury cases with him for the past several years. I know that Frank is also an accomplished criminal defense attorney and is highly respected by judges, fellow practicing attorneys and his clients. Not only is Frank an excellent attorney and litigator, he is professional, accessible and very personable. A person requiring assistance in a civil or criminal matter would be wise to consider Frank’s representation.
