Attorney Profile

Family law matters often take an emotional and financial toll. As a partner at Axley Brynelson, LLP, Kathryn Grigg provides experienced, compassionate representation for those who are going through the stress of a divorce in the Madison, Wisconsin, metropolitan area. Her education includes a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Juris Doctor from the University of Wisconsin Law School, and she is admitted to practice in Wisconsin and before the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin.

Understanding that conflict increases the strain of an already difficult time, Ms. Grigg offers her services as a collaborative divorce attorney to assist those who wish to minimize the strife typically associated with the end of the marital relationship. She holds memberships with the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin, Inc., the State Bar of Wisconsin, the Waukesha Bar Association, the Dane County Bar Association and the Legal Association for Women.

Many couples may worry that personal assets will become marital property that would be divided in the event of a divorce. In other cases, spouses who forego a promising career to stay home with the children may want to ensure that they will be financially secure if the relationship ends. Ms. Grigg assists with drafting prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that fulfill these and other needs. 

Ms. Grigg is skilled in helping clients protect their business interests and minimize exposure for paying support. She has extensive experience representing self-employed clients and analyzing complex assets and income structures. Ms. Grigg’s approach blends empathy with client education. She believes that clients who understand the legal process and the laws are in a better position to shape the outcome and attain favorable results.

In addition to her experience with complex asset division and spousal support in divorce, Ms. Grigg assists parents with custody matters such as the development of parenting plans, relocation and modification, and child support. She also accepts clients who are dealing with same-sex relationship issues, grandparent and third-party visitation rights, and the establishment of paternity. When couples do not wish to divorce, Ms. Grigg may be able to assist them with legal separation or annulment.
