  • Robert P Christensen

    I have had the privilege of attending a number of trial skills seminars over the years sponsored by the American Association for Justice and the International Society of Primerus Law Firms where Paul Scoptur was a teaching and presenting member of the faculty. I have heard and seen him lecture and conduct break out skills sessions on jury selection, cross examination and deposition skills. It speaks to Paul’s experience and expertise as a trial lawyer that many of us seek him out for case evaluations and trial preparation advice. Paul and his Milwaukee based Aiken & Scoptur, S.C. law firm is highly regarded throughout the country as a pre-eminent Plaintiff’s trial firm having achieved numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements.

    Paul Scoptur is without question one of the finest personal injury attorneys in Wisconsin. He has received about all the honors and professional recognition an attorney can aspire to. He is also a good human being who believes in what he is doing—helping people hold wrong-doers accountable. The thing about Paul that jumps out at me is how he invented strategies and tactics in litigation that other accomplished attorneys now use, all over the United States. It takes creativity, persistence, and guts to put yourself out there and recommend to established lawyers that there are better ways to do things. I have personally adopted several of Paul’s techniques in my own practice, and I see the positive results for my clients. If you are looking for a top lawyer for a serious case in Wisconsin, I encourage you to talk with Paul. You will not be disappointed.
