Prior to my start as a practicing attorney, I graduated Summa cum laude from Princeton University with a bachelor’s degree in Classics and was honored to be chosen by the faculty to address my graduating class in Latin as the Latin Salutatorian of the class of 1999. I then went on to graduate from Yale Law School in 2002.
Today, I have been practicing law for over 20 years. Over the course of my career, I have served as a judicial law clerk to the federal district judge in Green Bay, Wisconsin, I have worked with large civil litigation firms, and I have run my own private practice.
I have argued jury trials and bench trials in both state and federal court. I have been lead counsel, I have been co-counsel, and I have been local counsel. I have handled appeals in the Wisconsin Court of Appeals and the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
At my firm, I offer services as a civil litigation attorney to both plaintiffs and defendants. The majority of my work is with private individuals and small business owners, though I also represent larger businesses as both sole counsel and co-counsel in collaboration with other firms in the area.
This breadth of experience has given me the opportunity to handle civil litigation cases of virtually every type you can imagine. As a result, I am familiar with nearly every situation that could arise in civil law – and if I haven’t already managed a case with a similar subject matter in the past, I am well prepared to use my experiences to navigate the situation with skill and efficiency.
The Benefits Of Working With An Attorney Who Represents Both Plaintiffs & Defendants
While all good lawyers sympathize with their clients to some degree, they are supposed to
maintain a level of detachment for the people they represent. Just as you would not want a hospital patient suffering from the same illness as you as your doctor, a lawyer with too much sympathy
might slip into being too much of an advocate. As a result, this can jeopardize the objectivity that is essential to serving your best interests.
Working as an attorney who represents plaintiffs as well as defendants results in a greater degree of
objectivity. If your lawyer is defending you and has had experience fighting for a plaintiff in a similar
case, he can imagine being the lawyer on the opposite side – or even the judge. This allows him to see
the flaws and weaknesses of a case, as well as its strength. By being able to see both sides, he is in an ideal position to fight for your best interests.
My Experience Representing Clients Outside Of Wisconsin
While a number of our clients are in the Green Bay area, a fair number are not from Green Bay – or even from Wisconsin. Some of our clients are even located outside the country.
We have found there is no real difference in the kind of relationship we have with clients who are five blocks away or 5,000 miles away, especially in this era where most of our communication is electronic. We have local clients with whom we’ve done a lot of work without ever meeting them face to face, and we have had clients from other countries that we’ve met more than once because they have come in to see us or do business in Wisconsin.
Because we live in an era of interstate and international business, you find that sometimes it is easier to find yourself in a business dispute. If you’re in a dispute with somebody who’s located in Wisconsin, you may very well need a Wisconsin lawyer, and because we are a smaller firm, we’re at an advantage. How? Because the odds that we would have a conflict of interest or a close tie to a local business is lower than what they would be with a larger firm that represents a larger number of local businesses. So no matter what situation you are facing, you can be confident that we will be able to help.
With the guidance of a skilled attorney for Civil Law Cases, you can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that we’ll make it look easy.
