Review J Gass

About Me

Although the firm's office is in Milwaukee i spend very little time there. My cases and trials are all around the country and so i work remotely as a "virtual"  partner most of the time. During the summer months i live and work from Minocqua, Wisconsin in the far northern portion of the state in the most concentrated inland lake area in the world. In the winter months I live and work from Santa Rosa Beach which is in the Panhandle of Northwest  Florida. I have been selected for listing in Best Lawyers in America since 1994, for Wisconsin Super Lawyers since 2005, for Best of The US in two categories and for Chambers USA. Chambers has published client comments of: "A personality the jury wants to listen to." and "Strategy minded -- develops a timetable and sees it through to completion." Milwaukee Magazine: "The man can talk to juries." "The A-Team of trials -- apporoach is a template for how persuasion should be accomplished." From a Fellow of the LCA.

  • Timothy C. Nies

    I endorse this Mr. Gass. We worked on a personal injury case together in Key West. He is the real deal and, in my opinion, the best defense attorney in the U.S. I learned more from Mr. Gass in one case, than I did in 3 years of law school. He is the real deal. If you are a company or insurance company that needs a top-notch, professional attorney - Mr. Gass is your attorney.
