About me

Theresa Laughlin received her undergraduate degree and her J.D. with honoros from the University of Wisconsin - Madison.  She was admitted to the State Bar of Wisconsin in 1995 and has tried cases throughout the state, including Marathon, Lincoln, Oneida, Langlade, Dane, and Milwaukee counties.  After gaining experience at a few firms in Wisconsin, Theresa decided to join the dedicated legal team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. in 2008.  Since then, she has focused her practice on claims involving motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, and product liability claims.

    Theresa Laughlin is a very detailed, caring and compassionate attorney. She is very responsive and well liked by her clients and other lawyers in the community. She is one of only 5 female Board Certified Trial Attorneys in the State of Wisconsin. As a result, the insurance companies know that she is not afraid to go to trial. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a personal injury attorney.
