About me

Visit my blog about Wisconsin business litigation at

I practice with Hinshaw & Culbertson, LLP, a 475-lawyer firm headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.  Hinshaw's 23 offices in 15 states from Florida to Oregon offer comprehensive legal services, including intellectual property, business transactions, transportation, environmental, employment, fidelity and surety, white-collar crime, and products liability.

For three years, I served as the Chief Executive Officer of the Apartment Association of South Central Wisconsin, the second-largest such association in the state of Wisconsin.  During my tenure, the Association grew to include three additional counties.  Under my leadership, the Association successfully defeated multiple municipal, county, and state legislative efforts that would have harmed its members’ businesses.  For instance, one proposed ordinance would have mandated participation by all rental property owners in the federal government’s Section 8 housing subsidy program.

I have extensive experience as an appointed and elected official in the State of Wisconsin.  For example, Governor Tommy Thompson in 2000 appointed me to the Lead Paint Technical Advisory Committee, which was instrumental in crafting a lead paint law for Wisconsin.  In 2006, I was appointed to the City of Muskego's Board of Review, where he served as vice-chairman.  In 2007, I was elected to City Council of Muskego, Wisconsin, and was three times elected to serve as the Council's representative on the Plan Commission, and appointed to chair the Public Works Committee in 2008.  In April, 2009, I was re-elected to my second two-year term on the City Council of Muskego, Wisconsin, and was also elected President of the Council.

  • Brian A. Schuk

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I apposed Noah on a airport hanger dispute, Noah was well thought out and prepared in an area of law that I have found most attorneys under estimate its uniqueness. Noah since then has become a great resource for me. His clients are fortunate.

  • Mara Claire Spring

    I worked with Noah for several years, and tried a civil battery case with him in which we won a defense verdict in the face of an underlying guilty plea to the criminal charges. Based on my experience with him, he is effective in trial, motion practice, discovery, and all other facets of litigation. Noah's background in elected government provides a unique skill set for client service.
