    I had the opportunity to appear with Paul on a panel regarding agricultural issues at a State Bar of Wisconsin conference. It was easy to see that Paul is a very experienced litigator. Paul is personable and knows how to present himself well to a group. I wouldn't hesitate to refer any client of mine to Paul.
