James P. Burnett

Of Counsel


I have practiced primarily in the Calumet County area since 1976. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 1973 and Marquette University Law School in 1976.

Since 1976, I have concentrated my practice on civil litigation, both personal injury and commercial/business litigation. I have represented various municipalities for many years as well as banks.

I have tried cases throughout the Fox River Valley in the State Courts as well as in the Eastern District of Wisconsin Federal Court.

My practice specializes in litigation with an emphasis on personal injury. I enjoy an AV rating for ethical standards and legal ability in litigation which is the highest rating available by Martindale-Hubbell.

Together with my wife, Kathy, I live in New Holstein. We have three children and six grandchildren.

There is significant enjoyment and a sense of accomplishment in obtaining a good result for clients in civil disputes.
