Where do I begin and how do I thank a legal team that forever altered the course of my life? It is difficult to put into words what Aaron Halstead and Matt Robles did for me and how they successfully closed a very difficult and negative chapter in my life. I was wrongfully terminated sixteen days after returning to work from a serious worker’s compensation injury by my employer of over ten years, and I had no idea if there were any legal options available to me. After doing all that I could with my former employer to rectify the termination and be reinstated, I was left in a situation that I didn’t know if things would ever be made right. After researching worker’s compensation attorneys in Madison, I decided to call their office, present the facts, and inquire if I even had a case. They promptly reviewed the information, accepted my case, and began working diligently on my behalf. Thirteen and a half months after first walking into their office, I received notification from the DWD that I had won my worker’s compensation hearing, and that the Judge ordered my former company to pay me a year’s wages. We went through two hearings in the process, and I can’t say enough great things about their legal strategy, preparation, and determination to win for me. Aaron and Matt are not only fantastic attorneys, but they are wonderful people who will fight for the truth. Their paralegal, Armando Veizaga, also helped in my case, and he was a tremendous asset to their team. Many thanks to this great group of skilled and compassionate people who truly changed the course of my life.

I was recently discharged from employment after 34 years of service. I didn't know where to turn and Aaron was recommended to me. I don't live near Madison, and thought I would need to travel to his office. I was pleasantly surprised that everything could be handled by phone and email. He listened to the details of my concerns, he responded to my emails promptly and followed up if necessary with phone calls. He was honest and showed concern for me, without leading me to believe there was a huge settlement awaiting me. Once informing me of what to expect, he went to work to get me a settlement beyond what I could have hoped for. I would recommend him to people in a similar situation. I am very appreciative of the work he did for me.

I found Aaron very considerate and answered all my questions promptly. If I didn't understand something he took time to explain it. I felt confident with Aaron representing me as he made lemonade out of lemons. I highly recommend Aaron and his staff.

Let me first say that this is the man I will be recommending to anyone and everyone. Mr. Halstead and his team were very upfront, friendly and professional. They were only a phone call away if i needed them, communications was very important to me and it was never a problem getting in touch with him if I had any questions or concerns about my case. Excellent work.

Aaron Halstead settled to a high level of satisfaction two Worker's Compensation claims for me in the past six years. I was impressed by the level of expertise that was shown. My questions were always answered promptly and in language that I, a non-lawyer, could understand. If any of my co-workers ever need an attorney, I would not hesitate to recommend Aaron. In addition, he is well-assisted by paralegal, Armando Veizaga.

Aaron Halstead has worked as my attorney for both a workers compensation case and a safety violation case (related to the workers compensation case) for over four years. I would highly recommend him and Armando Veizaga( his paralegal) to deal with workers compensation insurance companies, their attorneys and their supposedly "independent medical doctors". Yes, insurance companies will hire certain doctors to evaluate and/or review medical records reflecting treatment provided by your medical doctors. This is for the purpose of having the “independent” medical doctor (once again paid by the insurance company) give a second medical opinion on you. You can guess how the medical report will be written.
I would contact their office sooner vs later to find out if you should even speak with an employee of the workers compensation insurance company. Aaron and Armando will not be able to help you medically, but will do a great job of making sure you get medical help and try to minimize the influence the insurance company has regarding treatment and eventually compensation.

Aaron was veracious, efficient, and completely worthy of my entrust to spend billable time on what was important. Unlike my experience with others, I did not get billed for any research time used for himself to become more educated in order to give advice and counsel--- he already knew what was needed. That is how it should be.

I cannot say enough positive things about Aaron. Not only is he knowledgeable, but he is timely, helpful, compassionate and reliable. With no previous experience to the legal system, he shattered all stereotypes that I had of attorneys. He was very easy to work with and kept me informed and educated along the way. I would highly recommend his services. I couldn't be more appreciative of Aaron's help.

I came to Aaron Halstead because I was concerned that I was about to be terminated unfairly. His appraisal of my situation was honest and practical: we talked through potential strategies for proactively addressing my concerns, including his helping me to put pressure on my employer to do what is fair. His intervention appears to be succeeding, as I am negotiating a redefinition of my position that will hopefully bring about what's best for everyone.
Aaron’s representation is very fair. More than once he has recommended *not* taking an action as it would cost extra money and wasn't warranted. At his suggestion we have worked mostly by e-mail, to keep costs down. His e-mails are thoughtfully considered, down to earth, and helpful.
It is a great relief to have a strong and expert person in my corner, who genuinely has my interests at heart.

Aaron is extremely professional, returns phone calls and e-mails immediately. He is very quick to respond, and explains things in a way that are easy to understand. He continuously kept me updated on the entire process. Without his help and expertise I would have been out of work and had no other options.
