Representing Individuals and Families Throughout The Milwaukee Area



Resolving Family Law Disputes For Over 35 Years

You may have accepted the reality that your marriage is near its end. However, you may not know how to begin the legal process that will dissolve your marriage bond. When difficult decisions need to be made that will affect your family’s future, it is wise to work with a knowledgeable lawyer.

Since 1983, I have assisted hundreds of individuals and families in the Milwaukee Metropolitan area who were struggling with difficult and life changing family law matters. When you work with me, you will receive the attentive and insightful legal advice you need at a life-changing time.

Work With An Attorney Who Has Been Recognized For High Achievement

Over the course of my career, I have made it a goal to treat my clients with respect and fairness, to seek out common sense solutions and to resolve disputes effectively. My client-centered focus and ability to achieve cost-effective results are no small part of the reason that I have received an AV Preeminent rating through Martindale-Hubbell* since 1995, and that I have been named as a “Super Lawyer”, which represents the top 5% of the lawyers serving the Milwaukee Metropolitan Area.

I view every client as a potential referral source for my practice. When my representation has concluded I will want you to feel that I cared about you and your legal matter, that you were treated fairly and with respect, that I obtained the best possible result for you and that the fees charged to accomplish that result were fair and appropriate under all of the circumstances. Rest assured that I will take the time necessary to listen and understand the circumstances surrounding your legal matter and will use all of my experience and resources to arrive at an effective legal strategy.

Qualified To Handle A Variety Of Issues

My comprehensive family law services include:

  • All aspects of divorce, separation proceedings including: Negotiation of property division and spousal maintenance (Called Alimony in some states).
  • Negotiating child support
  • Negotiating child custody agreements
  • Negotiating child placement or “visitation”.
  • Modifying child support, child custody and spousal maintenance orders in post judgment matters
  • Meditation of divorce or other family law matters

I am qualified to resolve family law disputes in Wisconsin using a variety of approaches. Most cases can be resolved via negotiation and finalized as an uncontested divorce. Despite best efforts to resolve cases by agreement, circumstances may require that the matter be presented to the court in a trial. Either way I will be with you as your advocate from beginning to end.

Mediation: An Alternative To Traditional Divorce

Many persons grappling with the potential for a divorce in their life’s circumstances have discovered that Mediation, (where my services would be retained to serve as a neutral third party to facilitate a resolution of their issues) is a much better way to solve the issues. Mediation is non-adversarial, and ultimately the agreements reached in mediation are jointly forged by the parties with the Mediator informing the parties and facilitating the implementation of their agreements. Because the mediator is jointly retained, the parties save money by sharing the mediator’s expense. The process is usually more cost effective than traditional divorce avenues and involves a higher level of confidentiality and control of the outcome.

I am ready to provide my services in any direction that is best suited to the needs of my clients. You can rest assured that I will explore all options before recommending a course of action.
