Milwaukee Divorce Attorney Family Law

A divorce, child custody case or other family law case does not always have to be a traumatic, combative experience. Even when the issues are complex, your future is at stake and emotions are running high, I will work hard to protect your legal rights while avoiding unnecessary conflict and stress.

As a skilled Milwaukee Family Lawyer, my goal is to resolve matters quickly and to save clients the trauma of litigation. But I will vigorously defend your rights in court when needed. My Firm provides quality legal guidance to clients throughout Wisconsin in the following family law practice areas: Divorce, Child Custody and Placement, Child Support, Maintenance (Alimony), Pension Disputes, Property Division, Dividing Debts, Visitation, Protective Orders, Adoption, Family Mediation, Paternity, Motions to Modify, Relocation, Family Law Appeals, Other Post-Judgment Actions.

I have practiced in the area of family law for over 34 years. During that time I have been involved in hundreds of family law cases, including appeals. I have a reputation for looking out for my clients' best interests. I handle each case personally, with the assistance of my office staff, and attend all court appearances with clients. I listen carefully to my clients, respond promptly to clients? phone calls, keep my clients informed of the legal process and my professional services at all times, and provide straight answers to clients' questions.

I am aware of the stress and emotion involved in family law cases, especially those involving children. I do not treat clients as files, but rather as human beings who deserve the utmost respect, compassion, and my best efforts at resolving their legal situations.

I realize that your time is as valuable as my time, and I respect that accordingly. I attempt to resolve legal issues as cost-effectively as possible, but at all times stand up for my clients' best interests. I use my best efforts and legal expertise to resolve all legal issues without trial, but if that cannot be accomplished, I am an experienced and skilled litigator. I treat my clients with empathy and compassion in the midst of what is normally a very emotional and stressful time.
