Areas of Practice

Divorce & Family Issues Wills, Trusts, and Estate Plans


Abby D. KnopsI am an Appleton native who is proud to practice law in my hometown due to the strong sense of community throughout the region. I possess a dedicated work ethic I learned while growing up in the Fox Valley. My decision to focus on Family Law enables me to act as a committed advocate for my clients who often seek my representation while involved in confusing and stressful situations. My role as an attorney is to ensure my clients receive a fair and just outcome to their case as I guide them through the legal process and keep them fully informed at all times. I recognize that the legal system can be confusing, so I strive to make certain my clients fully understand and are involved in each step of their case. Family Law often involves strong emotional issues and I feel I can make a difference for my clients by achieving positive outcomes to difficult situations. I possess excellent listening skills and am detailed in my approach to the legal system.

I focus my practice on all forms of Family Law, including divorce/legal separation, child custody and placement, child support, maintenance, property division, paternity, premarital agreements, name changes, stepparent adoptions and termination of parental rights.  I also handle guardianships (minor and adult) and basic estate planning such as Wills, Powers of Attorney for Healthcare and Finances, and Living Wills.  I am a Shareholder at Menn Law Firm, and have been with the firm since graduating from law school in 2007.

“I don’t stop advocating on behalf of my clients until the job is completely done. When it is, it is personally satisfying that I helped someone through difficult times and changed their lives.”
