I focus my practice mainly on landlord-tenant law, representing both landlords and tenants. After being a partner of Wassel, Harvey & Schuk, LLP for 12 years, I opened my own law firm, Schuk Law, LLC, in June of 2017. I continue to offer experienced and effective representation to businesses and individuals by assisting with negotiating and drafting leases, evictions, and damages/security deposit disputes. I am also familiar with HUD and Rural Development rules and regulations.
I have participated in numerous speaking engagements for Sterling Education Services (SES), Wisconsin State Bar's Pinnacle, and for local associations and groups. In May 2017, I was program chair for Pinnacle's webinar, From Evictions to Damages, which included a panel discussion with local commissioners and a circuit court judge. I am also an adjunct professor at both UW-Madison Law School and Marquette University Law School.
I have also shared my landlord-tenant law knowledge through various writing projects. In 2016, I was asked to write a featured article for the State Bar of Wisconsin's Inside Track. The article, New Law Gives Landlords More Tools to Remove Problem Tenants, discussed the changes to the landlord-tenant law created by the 2015 Wisconsin Act 176. More recently, I was asked to contribute to the State Bar of Wisconsin's upcoming book, Wisconsin Landlord/Tenant Manual, for Books Unbound.
I am an active member in good standing of the State Bar of Wisconsin and is a former President of the Walworth County Bar Association. I received his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, and his J.D. from Marquette University Law School.
