About me

I have lived with my wife and 7 children in the Sherman Park neighborhood of Milwaukee since 1984.  Mylaw practice consists mainly of satisfied repeat clients and referrals from existing clients.  I try to provide quality legal representation at an affordable price. I listen to my clients.  I spend my non working time on my bike or trreadmill or reading or just relaxing. I am a member of many neighborhood organizations and try hard to give back to my community.
