Attorney Profile
I take seriously our social responsibility as personal injury lawyers to protect the public by reducing the number of deaths and injuries caused by accidents and our responsibility as members of the community to give back.For many years, we have been a major sponsor of Accident Scene Management which has trained over 10,000 motorcyclists what to do in case in case of an accident before an ambulance arrives.  We have spent a great deal of time, effort and money educating drivers on how important it is to "Watch for Motorcycles," through public service annoucements on television, in full page newspaper ads, and on the radio.  We had a large "Watch for Motorcycles," campaign during the Harley Davidson 105th Anniversary in Milwaukee in 2008.  We have provided child identification kits to the parents of over 8,000 children in Wisconsin.We have supported food bank programs, public television, and programs to help the disabled, such as Disability Resources, Inc. in Abilene, Texas and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in Pittsburgh.  We have, through the service we provide and the results we get for our clients and our public outreach, built probably the largest volume personal injury practice in the State of Wisconsin.
