About me

I have been a partner with the firm, focusing my practice primarily on serious personal injury cases caused by motor vehicle accidents, construction site accidents, unsafe premises and medical malpractice.  I have successfully tried numerous jury cases through verdict and has represented clients throughout Wisconsin, as well as in Illinois, Michigan, Florida, and California.
