About me

I have focused my practice on family law cases since 1999. Having litigated family law matters throughout the State ofWisconsin, I represent clients in divorce, legal separation, annulment, paternity, child support, maintenance (alimony), grandparent visitation, post-judgment and other family law matters. 

I received a bachelor of science degree with honors from theUniversityofWisconsin-La Crosse, studying psychology and mass communications. Committed to issues involving child victims of domestic abuse, I interned as a child advocate at New Horizon's Shelter for Battered Women and Children.

After studying and interning as a law clerk inEdinburgh,Scotland, I attended the University of Wisconsin Law School and studied law inCambridge,England. I received my juris doctor in 1999 from the University of Wisconsin Law School.

I emphasize a cooperative approach to all family law matters and work closely with my clients, opposing attorneys, and related professionals to effectively represent my client's interests and best achieve their goals.  By focusing my practice on family law matters, I believe that I am most successful at staying current with the law and legal trends to protect my clients and provide excellent legal representation.

  • Rebecca Millenbach

    You are not going to find an attorney more passionate about her work than Alison. She is a class "A" lawyer who works with her clients to detail realistic objectives and create a plan for accomplishing those objectives. She strives to work cooperatively with opposing counsel to settle cases, but yet is not afraid to litigate. If you are looking for a stong partner to help you through your divorce, I highly recommend Alison.
