Throughout my 39 years as a personal injury trial lawyer I have also been a dedicated sports fan; I am a season ticket holder to the Milwaukee Brewers, Green Bay Packers, and I attend several Wisconsin Badger games every year. In addition to following most major sports at both the college and professional levels, I am an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction with an admitted soft spot for mysteries and historical fiction. I also play a fair amount of golf during the summer months.
My wife of 42 years, Anita, is a remarkably accomplished woman. Anita is an RN, a psychotherapist, holds natropathic certification`, and is a highly regarded actress in local community theater. Anita remains an indescribably valuable part of every facet of my life, professional as well as personal.
Perhaps my greatest non-work passion is for my 3 (soon to be 4) grandchildren. I am fortunate to have both my sons, their wives, and all our grandchildren right here in Milwaukee so I get to spend a good deal of time with each of them. Being a grandfather is one of life's greatest blessings.
