Biography

My practice emphasizes personal injury, medical and legal malpractice, bad faith insurance claims and business litigation.

I have extensive litigation experience in the State and Federal Courts of Wisconsin and have practiced in many courts outside Wisconsin. Prior to becoming an attorney, I was a pharmacist for five years.

I love to golf. I'm practicing as much as I can because some day, you never know, I might be playing on the senior tour. My wife and I have three grown children and two  young granddaughters who have become the newest additions to our family.
