Erik is a litigation and family law attorney focusing on large claims (over $10,000), contract disputes, landlord/tenant rights, municipal violations, and paternity. I also handle child support and spousal support adjustments.


Although I focus on the topics above, I also have experience in criminal law, first amendment litigation, and real estate litigation. As a niche offering, I am passionate about options for people to keep land in agricultural or undeveloped use. Contact me to discuss tax incentives that may be available for your land.


My diverse experience makes me a versatile lawyer. I enjoy the opportunity to advise clients across a wide range of legal issues, no matter the size of the case.


I work hard for my clients.


I give honest advice about the strength of your case and the best approach to get what you want. I will not take your money if you have a weak case or I do not have experience in the area. I estimate that I turn away or refer out four times as many cases as I take.


I enjoy litigation but am mindful that it is hugely inefficient. I try to find alternatives to limit costs.


Contact me for a personal consultation. Get one hour for $150. We also offer a longer consultation for $275.

the best attorney
we found out our title had a $30,000 mortgage on it, put there by an unscrupulous real estate/owner person. that was done 16 years ago. we hired one attorney that along with his investigator could not find paperwork for our home. we went to Eric and Eric found all the paperwork, convinced the unscrupulous person to sign the satisfaction of mortgage and solved our problem. we have so much admiration for Eric. he solved the problem that we thought no one would be able to solve, after 16 years. Eric did it and we rate him A+++++.

Knowledgeable, Trustworthy, and Exceeds Expectations
I hired Erik for a civil replevin case in Waukesha regarding my pet cat. It was an extremely emotional process for me since my pets are my family and Erik was very supportive and sensitive to this. He took the time to understand all the aspects of my case and researched similar cases. At trial, it showed that he knows the laws and what information was important to focus on. The judge ruled in my favor and I was reunited with my fur baby! I highly recommend Erik and would hire him again!

The Best Lawyer Ever
This letter is to give testimony of the amazing work Attorney Erick Krueger did in representing me in a court case in which money was due me in a divorce settlement involving a business. The case was unbelievably challenging as the opposing side tried every delay tactic possible including bankruptcy to eradicate their obligation of payment. Attorney Krueger displayed proficiency in not only divorce law but other areas of law as well. Attorney Krueger is intelligent, dedicated, energetic, tenacious, detail oriented, focused, and trustworthy. I felt as though I was his only client. He kept me well informed and patiently explained what I needed to know. Attorney Krueger did not waste time or use delay tactics and was always thoroughly prepared for court hearings.

Awesome Lawyer
My wife and I had a awesome experience with Erik. My wife and I were dealing with a legal battle with our West Allis Home about code violations. My wife and I bought the house from two private sellers that failed to address that there were code violations with our home and sold the house to us. My wife and I were receiving threating letters after just being in our new home for a couple of days, the city saying that we had to fix the code violations. I think the city should have gone after the sellers and not us. My wife and I hired Erik Krueger as our attorney and our experience with Erik was Outstanding! He fought for use every second for and we finally after two years of this nightmare we settled out of court. We are filing a lawsuit very soon against the sellers getting our money back from all of this. We are extremely dissipointed on how the city had handle this situation. Erik really cares about us and we are really looking forward to working with him very soon. Sincerely, Adam and Katherine
