Car Accident
My local attorney recommended Attorney Ralph Tease at Habush, Habush and Rottier S.C. after I was injured in an automobile accident. Attorney Tease, along with Paralegal Lisa Karcz, deserves a 5 star legal representation that made a difficult experience as painless as possible. Attorney Tease exceeded my expectation and handled my case with expertise. They are very courteous and kind. They kept in contact with me during the time it took to settle with the insurance companies. I would recommend Habush, Habush & Rottier S.C, to anyone who is in need of a lawyer. I will use them in the future should the need arise.

Vehicle Accident
I was recommended to Attorney Tease through a friend of mine after I was in a car accident. Attorney Tease was very helpful in all aspects of my complex case. There were multiple insurance companies including Workers Compensation involved. I was extremely happy with the communication throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Attorney Tease.

Professional from start to finish
I would recommend to anyone in need of legal representation. Attorney Tease and his paralegal Lisa Karcz managed everything for me with the insurance companies so I could focus on recovery from my injury. No doubt in my mind they fought to protect me now and in the future.

Thank you Ralph and Lisa
Ralph took our complicated auto accident case. He uncovered facts that were indisputable. He and his staff were extremely compassionate, communicative and professional throughout the process. We were able to recover the maximum policy limits without the need for a painful and prolonged jury trial. We felt he had our family’s best interest in mind and are grateful to have had him representing us.

Grateful beyond words!
I was in an automobile accident in December 2013 and a family friend recommended I contact Attorney Ralph Tease. Best advice I was given! Ralph and his staff made the process of paying medical bills and keeping track of everything extremely easy to handle as they took care of this, while I took care of my rehabilitation. Ralph continually communicated with me throughout the process. Ralph has a very compassionate nature about him, and although soft spoken is very knowledgeable and thorough. I'm extremely pleased with the settlement he was able to obtain for me without having to go to court. I’m grateful to him beyond words.

Very helpful and professional
I was injured in a boating accident in Florida. Ralph and his staff were extremely competent and professional. Because the accident happened in a different state and on the water, there were many considerations for Ralph to research. Some of these included liability limits based upon the state and whether the accident happened on a state or federally controlled waterway. I suspect that a lesser lawyer would not have the knowledge to investigate these things. Ralph dealt with the insurance company skillfully and got a very fair settlement. I was highly satisfied with him.

Pedestrian Accident
After being involved in a Pedestrian Accident a co-worker suggested that I call Ralph Tease. In a very stressful time for me Ralph was there to handle of the details. Ralph was there for me every step of the way. He helped negotiate a fair settlement with the Driver's Insurance Company without having to take the matter to court. I highly recommend Ralph.

Review for Ralph Tease
Ralph was wonderful to work with. As it turned out, my case took a number of years to settle and he did his best to keep me informed along the way. He always took the time to explain the details of the process I needed to go through and gave me a realistic assessment of the facts and value of my case. Ralph is a very courteous and respectful person and that made this process much more bearable. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Heaven Sent
After being struct by a vehicle on my morning run, bills started piling up and debt collectors started calling and the drivers insurance company wouldn't pay a single bill... Ralph did an amazing job of getting the bills taken care of and allowing me to focus on my rehabilitation and getting my life back together. As we progressed to the end of the case Ralph negotiated a great settlement and we didn't even have to go to court.

Ralph was very quick to respond and resolved all issues. Through out the process, he kept me informed. He fought for me, and I'm happy to say the end result was in my favor. I would highly recommend Mr. Tease as he is a very professional, compassionate, and thorough attorney. I was extremely satisfied with the end result! He worked hard for me, and I know he'll do the same for you and your family.

Family Personal Injury case
I never expected to need a Personal Injury attorney, however, when the need arose, Ralph came highly recommended, and understandably so. He went above and beyond when dealing with a very sensitive situation, and a wide variety of personalities and ages within the family affected. The most critical of family members were pleased with Ralph and his staff. Their responsiveness, professionalism, dedication and knowledge are second to none!

representation in accident injury
Ralph represented my wife and I, when I was injured in an accident that took place on highway 41 near Green Bay, Wisconsin. Not only did he do an outstanding job handling the claim, but he continues to contact me on a personal level to see how everyone involved is doing! It's not often after a case is settled, that an attorney takes the time to see how his client is fairing after a life-changing accident. However, Ralph has been that kind of attorney/person/friend, who is willing to take that extra step to make sure things are going in the right direction. It's because of the countless emails and personal contact, that I feel inclined to write this review. Thank you Mr. Ralph Tease for being a truly great professional!

Attorney Ralph Tease Personal Injury Recommendation
I'm writing this review of Attorney Ralph Tease to help other people that might have been in a personal injury case who need guidance on which attorney to choose to protect themself. I have known Ralph ever since high school and have known him to be of the highest moral, ethical and professional character. I have also retained him to represent me in a personal injury case. I was involved in a car accident in the year 2000, in Green Bay, WI. While in traffic, I was stopped at a red light (with a car in front of me also stopped), when a pick up truck traveling at a high rate of speed, rear ended me at approximately 30 miles per hour, pushing my car in to the car in front of me, thus causing a pinball effect. That is when my nightmare began. After my hospital stay, over the next 3 years and many doctor visits, I ended up with 2 surgeries to my neck, resulting in 2 fusions. I also received a bulged disc in my lower back. 10 years later I am still experiencing pain in my lower back due to this accident. My first phone call after the accident was to Attorney Ralph Tease asking for his help. Ralph immediately got involved. Ralph settled my case out of court, for what I believe to be the maximum amount of damages (money) that I could receive for this accident. The whole experience, once you are in an accident, is literally a nightmare with the insurance companies, not wanting to pay out to a victim. Ralph protected me and my family from these insurance vultures not wanting to pay anything, in a case, where their client was 100% at fault. The bottom line is, if you are looking for a lawyer with integrity, that will fight for every dime that is owed to you, and more, Ralph Tease is your guy. His personality is mild and compassionate. He is a deep thinker, very smart and will do everything in his power to make sure that you are protected and that you will get the largest settlement available from any insurance company. If you're in trouble and you need help in a personal injury case, visit with Ralph and you will know immediately that he is your guy.
