About me

I have been serving Western Kenosha County and the state of Wisconsin for almost 30 years as a concerned citizen and lawyer.  I have been the school board president for Brighton District for almost 20 years before moving out of the district.  I have served for 20 years on the state ethics committee for attorneys and served as both an officer and director for the state trial lawyers association (Wisconsin Association for Justice).  I am presently vice president and in line to serve as president.  I am also board certified as a trial lawyer and have tried over 100 cases for clients through out Wisconsin.  I have won jury verdicts for seriously injured clients in excess of $2 million dollars including successfully defending seven figure verdicts before the state supreme court.

You don't have to travel long distances to have qualified trial counsel.  We handle the full range of accident and medical cases.  We do all forms of civil litigation.  I am also a certified public accountant with a business background.

We welcome new clients at our Paddock Lake office.  Our first consultation is free.  Thank you for considering us.
