About Theresa

Learn Theresa’s areas of practice.

Theresa Laughlin joined the firm in 2008 after working as an advocate for injured people since completing law school.  Her practice focuses on claims involving motor vehicle accidents, dog bites, falls, medical malpractice, and other personal injuries.

Theresa’s representation of plaintiffs in trial courts across Wisconsin earned her certification as a Civil Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. She is one of only eight women in Wisconsin who currently carry this distinction. Theresa is active in the Wisconsin Association for Justice, currently serving on its Board of Directors and frequently speaking at seminars. She has also been recognized as a Super Lawyer since 2014, and was named to the Top 25 Women Wisconsin Super Lawyers list 2016-2017.  She is also a Fellow with the Wisconsin Law Foundation, which recognizes lawyers who are known by their peers for high achievements in the profession and outstanding contributions for the advancement and improvement of the administration of justice in the State of Wisconsin. 

Theresa is on the Board of Directors of the Central Wisconsin Children’s Theater and volunteers at Chism Trail Ranch in Merrill.  She was previously on the board at the Montessori School of Wausau and a PTO co-president at Stettin Elementary School. 

Theresa graduated with her B.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1992 and in 1995 she received her J.D. A native of Wausau, Theresa is an avid, albeit beginning, downhill skier who will often visit Granite Peak for a couple runs over her lunch break. She enjoys gardening, reading, theater, horseback riding, travel, and the many recreational opportunities available on the lakes of Wisconsin’s Northwoods. Most of all, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two daughters, two dogs, and three horses.

Great Attorney
Theresa was a great attorney. She was always responsive to my questions no matter how many or how odd they may have been. I would recomend Theresa to anyone who has a personal injury case. She treats you more like she is your friend than your attorney.

Great Experience
Professional and kind. Explained the whole process to me and was able to get a fair settlement for my claim. It was nice to have someone give me such great service when my claim was not the 6 or 7 figure "ad worthy" claim. Knowing a little about the process, I suspect those are rare.

opposing counsel
I've defended several personal injury cases with Theresa as the plaintiff's counsel. She is a fantastic attorney who is knowledgeable and trustworthy. I would recommend Theresa to anyone with a potential PI case.

Great Experience considering I was Injured
Theresa represented me for a injury from a car accident. I was hesitant to make an injury claim as I had heard that the process could be difficult and my injury was tolerable on most days. I ended up calling Habush Habush and Rottier after seeing an ad on a particularily painful day. She was cleasr in her explanation of the process, honest and realistic in what I should expect, kept me informed and was patient and kind. I would send my closest family to her, but hope I won't need to.
