Car accident
Attorney Pemberton made a horrible situation much less painful. The communication was top notch and he was even able to get me max policy payout in a much shorter time than expected.

Personal Injury claim
I was involved in a major automobile accident where I was T-boned at a four-way stop intersection. I live in Wauwatosa and researched several law firms to handle my case. I was not satisfied and expanded my search and contacted William M. Pemberton of Pemberton & England Law Offices, Baraboo, Wisconsin. Attorney Pemberton visited my home to review the details of the accident and explained his approach to handle the case. I was impressed with Attorney Pemberton and retained him. The insurance company was difficult to deal with and presented many difficult hurdles we had to overcome. The claim took two years to settle. I was very pleased with the settlement and was fully satisfied with how Attorney Pemberton resolved the claim. I would recommend Attorney Pemberton to anyone needing personal injury representation

Highest of praise to Attorney Pemberton!
Attorney William Pemberton came highly recommended to me by another attorney. i couldn’t be happier with the results of my case!

Personal Injury
Attorney Pemberton was hired to recover expenses associated with a vehicle accident in which I was injured. His experience and dedication resulted in extremely favorable results, exceeding my expectations. I highly recommend hiring Attorney Pemberton if you find yourself in a similar situation.

Great to Work With
It was wonderful to be represented in my personal injury claim by someone that made me feel like my case mattered to them. There was always great communication (not always easy to find), and even though the insurance company was impossible to deal with and it was over a year before I sought him out, he and his assistant, Michelle B., were wonderful to work with! Because of them, I am pleased with the outcome of the case and happy that it is over.

Custody of my 12 year old son from his addicted mother
William Pemberton changed our lives, my 12 year old sons specifically. My sons mother kept him from me at birth and I had to go through court to get visitation to see my son. This continued throughout the years as I had to prove my worth to the courts that I had the right to raise my child. From the first week of his life, his mother started attaking me, and then calling the police on me. I went to jail many times, I cannot adopt my own grandson because of the claims of child abuse she reported about me. I was found not guilty on all accounts, but could do nothing to stop the damage done to me through the courts. My son went through 11 years of living with his mother part time, who would drop him off at her associates homes and dissappear for days. His mother has had 13 different boyfriends who would move right in with her, she frequently would invite new friends to stay for months on end. My sons mother has been addicted to pain medicine for 15 years now, destroying everyone's life along the way. We finally hired William Pemberton to help us save my son from his mothers actions towards him. William Pemberton was honest about our odds, he stayed with us for a two year battle, and with his tenacity wit and charm, he accomplished the unthinkable. When we started the case I had 50% custody and she had placement, we now have total custody and placement, his mother now has 4hrs a month supervised visits. Thank you Will

Big box retailer
I slipped and fell hard on the floor of a big box retailer. The floor was slipper from some type of clear gel that had spilled on the floor. My back, hip and wrest were injured. I had to have chiropractic services for several months before the pain went away. Mr. Pemberton took care of me and really was concerned about how I was feeling and wanted to make sure I was getting the right care. I was able to talk to Mr. Pemberton directly about my case. I was notified of everything that happened in my case. I was always up to speed on it and I loved that. I have already recommended Mr. Pemberton to several people and will continue to do so.

William Pemberton, Attorney
I was in WI on vacation when I fell at a tourist attraction, and broke my arm. When I returned home (in a different state) I located Mr Pemberton thru a computer search & asked his help in a personal injury case. Mr Pemberton & his staff were very professional, courteous, & interested in helping me. He was able to secure a larger settlement than I had expected. I highly recommend him.

Fantastic Results
Attorney William Pemberton represented me for a car accident I was involved in. The insurance company was trying to pull the cover over my eyes. Attorney Pemberton handled everything from the beginning and more than quadrupled the money I received from the insurance company. In addition, the staff at Pemberton & Englund was fantastic through the whole process. I highly recommend.

Excellent Lawyer!
My first attorney I've hired. I don't feel the uneasy feeling of wondering if he was the right guy, he definitely was a good choice on my part. I highly recommend him.

Excelllent Work !!!!
I had a slip and fall accident as soon as I got into Wisconsin for vacation. As soon as I got home to Illinois my fiancée went searching for a lawyer. I got very lucky to have had a wonderful lawyer. He made sure I knew everything that was going on over 2 years. He kept in contact with me over each thing that was going on. I was so nervous we were going to head for court. Mr. Pemberton called me one day and said lets do a mediation. We met in Wisconsin and inside I was nervous but as soon as I met him he made me feel at ease. I had told him from the beginning it was in his hands. I knew nothing and we got it settled out of court. I am so thankful for him and he was such a nice man. I have met some stuffy lawyers but he made me feel at ease. THANKS WILL !!!!

A Trusted Attorney
I contacted Atty. Pemberton over a year ago due to recommendation by another attorney. It started with what I thought would be a quick divorce that turned into a big circus. I was upfront with Atty. Pemberton as he was upfront with me in telling me of what to expect and did not make false pretenses or broken promises. My divorce took over a year not because of him but because of all the shenanigans that my ex-husband pulled and still trying to pull. It was tough and I thought my attorney would end up giving up on me....he proved me wrong. Atty. Pemberton was not just there to represent me, he was there to be a defender. He may be a young attorney but I have high respects for him....I trust him. I would highly recommend Atty. William Pemberton and his firm to anyone. Atty. Pemberton was not just there to just fight the fight but he was there for me and my children to fight for what's right. He wasn't just there just to make money but he will be there to work on his best for you as his client. He will not fail you as he did not fail me. Be truthful with him and he will be there to back you up. So if you are looking for someone that you can depend on, do not hesitate to give his office a call. Atty. Pemberton and his office will show you the respect that you deserve. I personally would like to thank Kelsey Brinker, paralegal, for all the work and for being a listener at times. Also, thanks to Tonya as well.

Excellent Handling of a Highly Complex Personal-Injury Claim
My wife suffered a severe ankle fracture from a slip-and-fall on parking-lot ice that was not controlled by the defendant even though it was the defendant's unequivocal responsibility to do so. Her treatment and subsequent therapeutic rehabilitation was exacerbated by the fact that she was undergoing chemotherapy treatments for cancer. She underwent a total of 29 treatments. The complexity of the medical bills was staggering, because the costs associated with the personal injury were commingled with the costs associated with the cancer treatments. Attorney William M. Pemberton, with great patience, diligence, and attention-to-detail, sorted through this seemingly never-ending array of medical costs and details and successfully presented the true, defendable facts to the defendant and the defendant’s representatives in a format subsequently believed and accepted by them. As a result, Attorney William M. Pemberton successfully avoided both trial and long-term protracted litigation that may have spanned years. My experience with Attorney William M. Pemberton was in the slip-and-fall, personal-injury-accident specialization of the law. His professional performance was outstanding and very successful. I would recommend him highly.
