My wife and I have known Mr. Bonneson for 25 years. He represented me when I was a passenger in a minor traffic accident and settled the issue in my favor in a very professional manner. Over the years, we have consulted with him several times at no cost to us. One of those times he was helpful in referring us to an attorney that was an expert in that type of matter.
Mr. Bonneson has been an active volunteer in several community organizations giving freely of his time. One of those organizations was a local Humane Society. We highly recommend consulting with Paul, he will steer you in the right direction.

Mr. Bonneson represented me twice: once in a personal matter and once in a business matter. Each time, I found him knowledgeable about the legal issues and attentive to the facts. He was prompt, professional and courteous as well as efficient and effective. The legal issues were resolved to my satisfaction. His fees were reasonable for the amount of work done.

I have known Paul for many years and he is a very professional and conscientious lawyer. He has appeared in front of me when I was a judge and he was always very courteous, professional and well prepared. I was impressed enough with Paul as a lawyer that I appointed him as my court commissioner while I served on the Waukesha County Bench as a judge. He cares about his client's and his reputation. Very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend Paul.
