Milwaukee area real estate lawyer and brokerI pursue claims on behalf of homeowners against sellers and contractors.
I represent homeowners who have purchased a defective property. The most common defects are leaky basements, displaced foundation walls, leaky roofs, moisture intrusion, mold, failed septic systems, flooding, and failed wells. I litigate claims on a contingent fee basis against prior homeowners, realtors, and inspectors. Claims against prior homeowners are the most common because they have a duty to disclose the defects that they learned about from living in the home. I also represent homeowners who have built a new home or who have made improvements to their existing home, pursuing claims against developers, builders, and contractors. Finally, I have started to represent people who want to purchase a non-defective property, protecting them through drafting contingencies in the offer and negotiating a release when defects are discovered prior to closing.
I was born in Milwaukee and grew up in Wauwatosa. I attended the University of Wisconsin on the prestigious Evans Scholarship and marched in the world-renowned Wisconsin Marching Band. Now I live in Grafton with my wife, son, daughter, and cat. I enjoy spending time with my family; volunteering with my parish, Scouting, and my daughter's lacrosse association; traveling; hiking; biking; weightlifting; and cheering on my favorite teams (Badgers, Packers, and Brewers).
