A firm with decades of experience at divorce, child custody, real estate and bankruptcy

Our practice has served Appleton and the Fox Cities area for more than seven decades. Our family law, probate, divorce, real estate, and bankruptcy attorneys are well versed in a range of legal subjects, including:

  • Divorce can be a complicated process; you should have a divorce lawyer who understands the challenges of Wisconsin’s marital property statute. Our firm’s divorce lawyers have more than 75 years of experience helping friends and neighbors through difficult times.
  • Maintenance formerly known as “alimony” or “spousal support”, is a court order that requires one former spouse to provide monetary support for the other. A court determination that maintenance is necessary is very specific to a particular case. As your family law attorney, we can help ensure your maintenance amount is fair.
  • Child custody and child support are critical issues to every parent. If you are concerned you may be facing a serious dispute over child support or custody, we will be your family law attorney and fight on your behalf.
  • Wills and Probate A properly drafted will eases the probate process, reduces the chances of litigation between your heirs and ensures that your estate goes to the proper recipients. We can tailor your will to your needs.
  • Real Estate As your real estate attorney, we are well versed in all aspects of residential. If you are considering buying or selling a home, or need help with a deed, lease or easement, we can guide you through the requirements.
  • Bankruptcy may understandably be a frightening prospect to you, but it is a process that helps many people rebuild their finances and move forward with their lives. Our bankruptcy attorneys work with our clients to develop a plan that restores them to financial health.

Our attorneys enjoy helping clients improve their lives. Let our experience work for you.
