Practice/Organization Description

I genuinely believe that the value of life comes from service to others. My service to the community has been very broad in scope. I have served as a member of the Oconomowoc school board, the Oconomowoc Hospital Foundation, and as a trustee of St. Jerome’s Catholic Church. I created a foundation for the Oconomowoc Rotary. I set up a non-profit corporation which provides medical services in Haiti. I have coached soccer for the Oconomowoc Soccer Association and Lake Country United. Currently, I am President of the Village of Lac La Belle. I am a legal advisor to St. Jerome’s Catholic Church and Holy Hill, and run a free legal clinic.

It is my passion and dedication that have powered my law career. As founder and president of the firm, I have created and nurtured an organization that is dedicated to the service of our clients. I require respect and dignity for everyone. I insist that every attorney and assistant obtain the training and continuing education necessary for the highest level of assistance to our clients. I practice what I preach. I travel annually to seminars all over the country. I arrange for twice-monthly teleconferences for our attorneys and the financial planners/CPAs who are our strategic partners. I emphasize active listening so that our team understands the range and depth of our clients’ needs. I provide client education so that they are empowered to meet the unique and unexpected challenges of life. My aim is to provide my clients with peace of mind. In the end, I want our clients to be satisfied with their choice of our firm as their personal, family attorneys.
