City of Middleton
Consistently provides excellent advice and resources. Is extremely knowledgeable and persuasive. Has tremendous network of contacts and great breadth of firm to provide legal services in which he is not expert. Possesses great respect from his colleagues, City staff and elected officials as well as the general public. Constructive criticism: Could delegate a bit more to other attorneys when his plate is full, and it often is.
