This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
I had a legal sitution that festered for over five years. Complicating the matter was that I received a judgement in another state and my opponent sought to evade payment in Wisconsin. This mattered little to Mr. Thill. He quickly registered our judgement in Wisconsin and began proceedings. What impressed me the most was that Mr. Thill kept at it no matter what my opponent attempted, tried, or said. Equally impressive was that Mr. Thill kept me informed every step of the way and often asked for my input. If you are in a needs collection situation I would highly reccomend Brian Thill. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Highly Recommended
I had recently had an unfortunate matter involving property and family. Sadly the situation could not be resloved without the need for legal intervention. Attorney Brian Thill provided me with uncompromising professionalism, compassion, and impressive legal knowledge. He always kept me informed, and I never felt as though I was "out of the loop". The outcome of the matter was succsessful One can never really claim a "win" in such a situation, but Attorney Thill did a remarkable job of being able to make myself financially whole, while limiting the harm to the contra party. A fine line which few can walk.
