A divorce, child custody and other family law cases can be full of conflict and emotionally painful. I will represent you to help mitigate the emotional turmoil and defend your rights. Family relationships can be complex. I will work hard to protect your legal rights while avoiding unnecessary 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

  • 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 it 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.

I also have substantial expertise in the areas of criminal law, personal injury, real estate, and have been involved in litigation in numerous areas of law, including court trials and jury trials. I litigated State of Wisconsin v. Tucker, the second case involving DNA litigated in Wisconsin. I have lectured on the use of DNA evidence and permanent injunctions. I appeared on the Fox News Network Program "Hannity & Colmes."
