Happy Client!
Paul was my attorney for my divorce which turned into a long custody battle over my daughter. I truly believe most attorneys would have given up on my case and not followed through. Paul not only followed through to the end but he went above and beyond in every manner. I feel he truly cared about the outcome for my daughter and he fought for her. He became a friend and someone I still trust. He really impressed me with his intelligence and ways of presenting the facts to the Judge to let the truth be seen. Not only have I hired him for other things, but I have referred him to anyone looking for a GREAT attorney. He's not like other attorneys I've dealt with, he truly has a passion for helping others! I am very thankful to have had him represent me.

Family Law
I contacted Paul Polacek early March 2017 about my family case which my ex-wife was trying to move jurisdiction from California to Wisconsin just to make things hard on me and take our 9yr old son away. I was shocked, very frustrated and stressed until I called Paul he listened to my story extensively then with no hesitation he said " I will do everything I can to bring your son back and I take this case as my personal matter/fight." His statement made me feel complete ease, comfort, assurance and right away I knew I was in good hands. Paul was my miracle attorney and savior. He delivered everyday, every step and never tired in handling my case. Paul was extremely professional and driven to get the results I needed. Paul is my hero because he saved me lots of money, headaches and most of all won the case. I cannot say enough thanks and no words can fully describe his kindness, resoluteness, toughness,intellect and mastery in Wisconsin Law. Paul brought me peace and security which I needed desperately. I was truly honored to have Paul as my attorney and a friend. All I can say to anyone who reads this is that Paul Polacek is an exceptional attorney and if you happen to hire Paul believe me when I tell you that Paul Polacek has your back and cares to bring justice swiftly to you. My case was returned back to California jurisdiction and both legal and physical custody that was maintained as it was. The case my ex-wife opened in Wisconsin fell apart utterly and all her negative ambitions were doomed by Paul's expertise and experience. Today 13 July 2017 my case was closed and dismissed from the Columbia County Courts WI. Thank you Paul Polacek for being my brother through this ordeal and may God bless you in everything you do and may God bring you success as you did for me. Thanks Paul !

Not happy
I retained Paul Polacek to represent me in an accident case. He was slow to respond to any corresponance. He let the statutes of limitations (3years) run out on my case. I retained another attorney who said I should sue for malpractice , which I did. The court has ruled a summary judgement in my favor. I am awaiting jury trial for determination of damages. Unfortunately Paul Polacek does not carry malpractice insurance.
