I am a personal injury attorney.  I would like to represent you in your claim for personal injuries.  If you have been injured in a car accident or other accident, I will represent you on a 1/3 contingent fee basis.  In other words, you do not pay me unless I win your case or settle out of court.

In personal injury cases, I try to reach a fair settlement as soon as possible.  However, if I cannot reach an agreement with the insurance company, I am prepared to file a lawsuit and conduct a jury trial.  I have extensive jury experience and I am very persuasive with juries.

I started practicing law in Black River Falls, Wisconsin in 1978.  I was District Attorney for Jackson County in 1981 and 1982.  In January 1983,  I opened my own law office.  I will be here practicing law for many years in the office I bought after my term as prosecuting attorney.

My experience as Boy Scoutmaster, President of the Lutheran Church Council and President of the Youth Hockey Association gives me good standing in the community.  I am able to talk to a wide variety of people.

I was pleased to help a woman collect her share of the VIOXX settlement fund.  Despite the lack of pharmecuticaI records, she is enjoying a nice settlement.  

I am also engaged in the general practice of law.  I can help you on a variety of cases including worker's compensation, social security claims, real estate, taxes, probate, bankruptcy, Indian law, and other legal matters.

In 2008, I represented 2 persons who were charged with felonies and were found NOT GUILTY by juries.

Worker's Compensation, Social Security Claims, Taxes, Bankruptcy, Indian Law
