    I work primarily with criminal defendents actively defending ongoing cases in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties. In the past I have worked with incarcerated clients as well as those out on bail. I rely heavily on phone and in person contact with clients and my goal for each case is determined based upon the goals and desires of the client I work for. My work in criminal defense includes: misdemeanor, traffic citations/municipal tickets, felony, revocations, & appellate matters. Wil do flat fees.

  4. Juvenile law
    Work as both advocate for parents, children, and as GAL for juvenile, CHIPS, and TPR cases. In Milwaukee and Waukesha County. My prior work as a prosecutor in this area lends me a unique perspective.

    18 years

An attorney represents individuals when they are dealing with highly emotional, critically important, and sometimes traumatic events in their life. Because of this I believe that the attorney-client relationship involves not only dedication and professional behavior by the attorney - but also trust and a willingness on part of the attorney to ensure that the client understands the process, is involved in their own case, and is making decisions that will best fit their goals and lifestyle.  I work hard to ensure that I understand my clients and their lifestyle. I want to be sure that I understand why they are making the decisions they are - so that I can shape their defense to obtain the results they desire. I advise and instruct but will not make decisions on my client's behalf unless expressly instructed to do so.


My husband and I live in Milwaukee with our children and a variety of pets. In my spare time I enjoy  reading, writing, and visiting Milwaukee's many  ethnic restaurants. When we can the whole family enjoys travelling to amusement parks, festivals, and parks around the state.


I was born and raised in Milwaukee. I am a hard-core Wisconsinite. Fan of the Brewers and the Packers, and proud to attend sporting events whenever possible.

Takes the Time to Answer all of your Questions
Attorney Lindgren has been a great source of knowledge and advice during a particularly rough time for myself as well as my family. She always made sure that she answered my questions to my satisfaction and made herself as available to me as her time would allow. When she is working with you, you always know that you have her undivided attention. We really have appreciated her attention and expertise in our legal matters.

Excellent resource
Kathleen was an extremely helpful resource for me while dealing with a landlord issue. She is very thorough and prompt in her responses, and always very professional. I will not hesitate to seek out her services again, should I ever need legal assistance in the future.

Awesome advocate
Kathleen was our attorney for our daughters death. She did her best to make it to every court appreance that we needed her for. She was an awesome advocate for us with our meeting with one of the Milwaukee district attorney's. She was a God send to us with her facilitating a meeting with the DA's office when we could not contact the DA ourselves. she was very helpful in answering questions when they arose. She went above the call of duty for us. I would recommend her and her firm again to my friends.

Saved the day
I needed legal assistance in a pinch and was able to 100% count on her service and took care of things while I needed to be out of town. Not sure what I would have done without her. Was grateful for the recommendation and she exceeded at all levels.
