About me

Kevin Lonergan is the President of the Herrling Clark Law Firm, and he is honored to have been recognized as one of the top lawyers in the state. Kevin was named to the Super Lawyers list of the top 50 lawyers in the state of Wisconsin. In 2015, he had the distinct privilege of being named Wisconsin’s “Trial Lawyer of the Year” by the Wisconsin Association for Justice. As of Kevin’s nomination and selection, only 14 other lawyers had received the same honor in the organization’s almost seventy-year history. He is one of the few lawyers in the State of Wisconsin who have been named to the "Super Lawyer" list (top 5% of all attorneys in the state) each and every year that Super Lawyers have been recognized.

  • Kristen Scheuerman

    I endorse this lawyer. Kevin is an exceptional attorney. I was able to second-chair a wrongful death case with him in early 2014 and his presence in the courtroom and in front of a jury was truly incredible. He is genuine, thoughtful and truly committed to protecting the rights of his clients.
