Areas of Practice

Accident & Workplace Injuries General Litigation


I joined the firm as a Partner in August, 2015.  I have been a practicing attorney for over twenty years in both Wisconsin and Illinois.  I have handled litigation matters on a pro hac vice basis in many states, including California, Louisiana, Nevada, New York and North Dakota.  I handle matters ranging from Employment Law, Workers’ Compensation, General Liability defense, Election Law and Landlord – Tenant matters.

I have jury trial experience to verdict and have taken well over 100 Workers’ Compensation cases to hearing in Illinois and Wisconsin.  I have also handled appellate matters before the Wisconsin and Illinois Supreme Courts.

Presently, I serve as a Special Investigator for the Supreme Court of Wisconsin’s Office of Lawyer Regulation.  From 2006-2008, I was a member of the American Bar Association’s House of Delegates, representing the State Bar of Wisconsin.

I am a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation as well as the Wisconsin Law Foundation.  My professional memberships also include the Wisconsin Association of Workers’ Compensation Attorneys, Brown County Bar Association, the St. Thomas More Society of the Diocese of Green Bay and the Federalist Society.

“I am a results oriented attorney, driven by a passion to serve my clients well. I do this by answering their questions, listening to their goals and developing an action plan to meet those goals with attention to containing cost.”
