Eric P. Pitsch

About me

I am a graduate of Appleton East High School, a local that has been around the Fox Valley area and Wisconsin his entire life. I have studied extensively, including over seas at Oxford University - Magdalen College and in Florence, Italy as well.


Beyond that, I am just the average guy who likes to hunt, fish and golf as much as possible. I enjoy traveling, reading, writing, watching the Packers and Brewers. I own a law firm in Appleton, Wisconsin and teach for Cardinal Stritch University on the side here at the local tech.


I'm an approachable guy who is relaxed and enjoys helping people. I volunteer my time and assist people in the local community on a regular basis. I make time for my clients at nights and on weekends because I know that times are tough in this economy and people are busy working during the days and have difficult time taking off to visit with their attorney.


Please feel free to contact me if you need assistance.
