I meet with clients at my Appleton or Green Bay offices and can meet by video conference if you are unable to travel. If you have a smart phone, tablet or computer we can easily meet by video to save you valuable travel time and we can communicate as if we were together in person.

I have lived in Wisconsin since 1991 and lam a huge Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers fan. I enjoy boating in the summers, baking, and spending time with my family.

Very Happy
Trish explained very clearly everything from the beginning about how my case would be handled and it did. It went as well if not better since during Covid the system was backlogged and courts were extremely behind. I would seek legal representation from Trish again if needed. Highly recommend her I couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

Patricia did a fantastic job handling my case. She first tried to get insurance company to pay without being hired. She kept me up to date on everything happening. Always returned phone call and emails. Was by far my best experience with a lawyer.

Thankful
Happily we were referred to Trish, and how grateful we are! Our case certainly wouldn’t be considered a large one, but from the very beginning she immersed herself into it and brought our case to a very satisfactory conclusion, the results being even better than we expected. Trish is a real professional. If you want the best, she’s it. Dale

Workman’s Comp Case
Patricia Sandoz was extremely proficient and easy to work with. She explained every step of the process as she worked diligently through my case. I could never have accomplished the excellent results that she helped me get.

Workers Comp
Workers comp is difficult to understand and process. Trish does a great job explaining the laws, and how the WC process works. She always set aside enough time where you never felt rushed and was available to talk to if we had questions or concerns. We are thankful we had hired Trish and would recommend her to anyone who had been hurt at work.

Not afraid to dig in
I hired Trish to help me with a workmans comp case that was turned down by an insurance company. After going through all the legal issues that were put in front of us, I sure am glad i had Trish explain it all so it made sense. The case was very frustrating to me, but she had my back and settled me down. I enjoyed working with Trish and Kieth very much and would recommend them to anyone. I was satisfied with our settlement, and liked the way she fought for me. Pleasant to work with, I enjoyed all of our talks about everything, she cares.

Working with Trish
Working with Trish was a great experience. She was easy to talk to and also talked to you so that you knew exactly what was going to happen. She kept you up to date on what was happening. Made this uneasy part in my life go more smoothly. She cares about her clients and what happens to them.

Great experience!
I hired Trish for my Social Security case. From day one Trish was very thorough and explained what to expect. She helped me every step of the way understand my Social Security case. If I had questions, she had the answers.

Review with working with Patricia
Working together was great, Patricia made it very easy and comfortable. Was always speaking out for my best interest, and kept me updated. Always hard working and fighting for my future and not just the payout; she wanted to make sure that I was taken care of. I would recommend her services to all my friends and family.

Representative of Motor Vehicle Injury Case
Mrs. Sandoz was very educated in the process for an injury claim. She kept me informed over the two(plus) year time period of my case. Her knowledge and calm demeanor helped to win our case in mediation, but was prepared to go to court if need be. Her negotiation skills helped me get more than we expected. I am more than comfortable with the results and would recommend her to anyone.
