Your Hometown Law Office: Providing Personalized Legal Support Right at Home

We are a hometown law office with deep ties to the Fox Valley.

As the years have passed, Appleton and the Fox Cities have grown, and so has our firm. With 17 lawyers joined by a professional support staff, we now offer more than 200 years of combined experience. We still hold firm to our founder’s belief in providing high-quality legal representation with a personal touch.

Personal Injury

If you’ve suffered a serious injury or the sudden loss of a loved one, it can have significant effects on you and your family. Besides physical pain and suffering from a personal injury, you may also face unpaid medical bills, ongoing treatment costs, and potential disability impacting your income. It’s essential to explore options for financial compensation in such situations.

If you or a family member have been injured by a negligent driver, property owner, or trucking company, or have been bitten by a dog, our lawyers are here to offer the legal assistance you need.

Losing a loved one due to negligence, dangerous products, auto accidents, or recklessness is emotionally and financially devastating. If you’ve experienced such a loss, a wrongful death lawsuit might be the best way to seek maximum compensation for your family.

Divorce is a complex process involving legal, financial, and emotional aspects. It’s vital to have an attorney who can protect your rights and advocate for your financial security and children’s well-being.

Our goal is to negotiate a favorable divorce settlement, and if needed, represent you in court.

Wills, Trusts, & Probate

Planning for your family’s financial security is crucial. Our estate planning attorneys can help you create wills and trusts to secure the future for your loved ones after your passing. We also provide assistance with powers of attorney, healthcare directives, and business succession planning. Our team represents executors and trustees in probate and estate administration cases. With our support, you can protect your family’s future and ensure your wishes are carried out as intended.

For a business, it’s essential to protect yourself from liability and establish a solid foundation for success.

Paula is very knowledgeable and kept my interests foremost in the divorce. While the divorce was amicable, Paula made sure I avoided pitfalls and reminded my ex-wife that even though the three of us met, Paula represented me. Paula was concise in our meetings and kept the process flowing smoothly. Without hesitation, I would recommend her to others.

Kelly was very helpful and knowledgeable when it came to my divorce. I was really going through a tough time and she helped me fight for what I believed in.
