After the City of Milwaukee was pressured by false articles that appeared in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about my company, my staff and myself, I was issued a citation by the Milwaukee Police department for hosting an illegal "ultimate or extreme fighting event," even though the event I promoted, kickboxing, did not meet the criteria defined in the city's ordinance.
Atty Urfer argued successfully on my behalf at the (first) pre trial hearing and won a judgement against the city based on constitutional grounds-selective enforcement. Due to a clerical error, it was recorded as "without prejudice."
Though the city could not "cure" their case against me, and they knew they lost on constitutional grounds, they reissued the citation to me a second time, knowing a constitutional victory can not be cured, regardless of it being recored without prejudice.
At a set of second pre trial hearings, tried by a different asst city atty (with the original city atty sitting by their side, but not telling the court what really happened), Atty Urfer was once again able to successfully score a judgement on my behalf, based on constitutional grounds-selective enforcement-with prejudice.
The city then appealed their loss to the Circuit Court where Atty Urfer was able to secure our third and final victory over the City of Milwaukee, and was also successful in getting the city to pay my legal fees originating from the 2nd citation I was issued.
The judge in that case was so appalled by the city's overall actions in my case, his comments became the basis for a feature article in the same paper by the same writer that started the mess.
As he was scolding the city for their actions, Circuit Court Judge Glenn Yamahiro went so far as to tell the court on record that Atty Urfer is a very skilled and competent litigator, and the city should have been much better prepared for the case.
I highly recommend Atty Gil Urfer, his partner who also assisted on my case Atty Dan Adams, and their law firm Adams Urfer LLC, if you need skilled, competent litigators who are more concerned with working hard for you and preparing a great case instead of billable hours...
Great attorneys who are also great people, that's who Adams Urfer LLC is.
