This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

Chris was my attorney on a criminal case. He is aggressive when you need him to be, but willing to negotiate a plea too. He is an outstanding trial lawyer, and truly a brilliant legal mind. I would recommend him to anyone! Chris has your back.

I had the opportunity to work with Mr. Wiesmueller twice.
He is very professional, friendly and prompt.
He gets down to every last detail, and kept me informed of each step of my case.
I recommended him to a good friend who also hired him, and I would recommend him to more.

I retained Attorney Wiesmueller's spouse and law partner, Corrine for my divorce representation. Corrine handed many issues of my case over to Christopher during my representation. I met with Christopher informally once while dropping off paperwork, and formally once to handle negotiations for a temporary order.
The temporary order that Atty. Christopher Wiesmueller wrote was specific, timely, and detailed, and I appreciated the work.
Atty. Wiesmueller seems very knowledgeable about the law. I felt that his legal advice was excellent.
I do think that his style is confrontational, and wasn't necessarily suited to my case when my estranged spouse and I were largely amicable. His style may be perfect for a criminal case, but not family law.
I felt he was more interested in complaining about the tactics of opposing counsel than he was on my case.
I wasn't aware at the time I retained the firm that Atty. Wiesmueller was publicly reprimanded by the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation on November 1, 2013. This public reprimand also notes a private reprimand from the same office given to Atty. Wiesmueller in 2012. Atty. Wiesmueller has political intentions and had a failed run for city attorney in Waukesha in 2014. His public reprimand also indicates that he's worked extensively with the Republican party.
I believe that Atty. Wiesmueller is an intelligent and knowledgeable attorney. If I were in a criminal situation, I may want him on my side. However, I believe that the public reprimand and the political ambitions would guide me to someone who has a focus solely on the client and not advancing his or her career.

Attorney Wiesmueller combines an extensive knowledge of the law with a genuine desire to help his clients succeed. I've personally seen the care he puts in to his clients' cases and I've seen clients reap the benefits of his hard work.
