After graduating from Catholic Memorial High School I attended college at UW-Whitewater. After two years I transfered to UW-Madison, where I obtained my degree in political science. Immediatley after graduating from Madison I was accepted to law school at Marquette where I graduated in 2005.
In law school I was the president of the International Law Society and was heavily involved in election protection work. In the summer of 2004 I accepted a job in Eritrea, East Africa. I worked for the Eritrean government and assisted in the investigation of human rights abuses. The majority of the time, I interviewed villagers about losses they had suffered during the invasion. I prepared financial claims for Eritreans and helped them seek compensation.
After law school I began my career as a criminal defense lawyer. I am a partner at Kuchler & Cotton Law Offices in Waukesha, Wisconsin. My practice is almost entirely devoted to the represenation of people accused of crimes. I consider myself a trial lawyer and have tried cases in both state and federal court. I believe strongly in listening carefully to my clients so that I can present their story in the most effective way. I learned how to practice law from two people - my mother and stepfather. They are the two finest attorneys I've ever known. They care about their clients on a truly personal level and they are committed to fighting for the underdog.
I try to remain heavily involved in the community - presently I am on the board of directors of three different organizations - Juvenile 180 Diversion, the Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
I work long hours, but enjoy what I do. More information is available on our website. www.kuchlerlaw.com
