If you are looking for an attorney that is really good at becoming friends with the opposition attorney and being well liked by the judge for his charisma around fellow colleagues versus truly fighting for your best interests, then Eric Zaeske is for you. In addition to that, he nickle and dines you for every second of reading emails, phone calls (even when you leave a voicemail with the receptionist). I assure you there are better attorney's that look out for your interests as he is focused only on his own.

11 years ago we hired Eric to help us through a family law situation. Things could not have gone better for us back then, with Eric on our side. So a decade later, when we found ourselves needing family law representation again, we knew exactly who to call, without hesitation!
As a seasoned attorney, Eric has a sixth sense for when, where and how hard to push. He has a very strategic tactical approach that lends for achieving overall goals. Not unlike a game of chess, Eric knows what move to make and at what moment. What’s more, he is completely transparent with this approach – his strategies were always thoroughly communicated ahead of time to us.
Our case is fairly complicated and sometimes Eric doesn’t know the answer to one of our questions (it is rare, but it does happen). As a well-respected attorney, with a significant reach across Metro Milwaukee, Eric has vast & diverse network of resources to tap. Ultimately, this network of Eric’s has saved us a lot of money.
I find Eric to be responsive, honest (even though sometimes I don’t want to hear it) and objective. He doesn’t tell you what you want to hear rather what will likely occur based on his experiences. In emotionally charged situations, this guidance is invaluable!
On a personal note, I feel obligated to point out how many times I have called Eric’s office, upset and he’s been more than a lawyer. His listened and then responded appropriately. He certainly talks through the legal implications but more importantly has never discounted my feelings.
Eric has also worked intentionally to mitigate our bill. Our case has been in & out of courtrooms, going on 14 months now. That’s not cheap. But Eric has been very candid about where he is making financial concessions on our statement. Again, this further demonstrates to us Eric’s commitment to our success. Hiring a lawyer is expensive, period. Spend wisely & do it right the first time.

I hired Eric to represent me in an unwanted divorce. He did an excellent job in presenting options to me, spoke from extensive experience on what his suggestions were, and ultimately let me decide what was best for my own situation. And he represented that decision.
Eric kept me informed throughout the entire process on what to expect, what challenges were worth fighting vs. those that were not.
Though I may not have gone along with what all of his recommendations (i.e. child support/placement arrangement), he supported and negotiated for me/my children to the very end to get what the best outcome for me/my family could be. And he got it. 100%.
Considering this was a situation I didn't ask for, and he had to represent me with that stance in the court of law -- Eric did everything he could to protect me, my children's interests, my livelihood and well-being....without compromising one iota on standards or morals.
I would be remiss if I didn't also mention Eric's para-legal, Erin, who definitely deserves more than a 'mention'! She is proficient, thorough, knowledgeable, and efficient! She knew what was going on through the duration of the case, and was able to answer questions handily that I asked.
I would recommend Eric and his team without hesitation to handle any family law matter. He's knowledgeable, experienced, compassionate and fair. He's my first call, and referral, in the event of another family court matter.
