Personal Profile:

After law school I served as a federal clerk for one year.  Before joining the law firm of Herrick & Hart, S.C., I practiced for six years in Durand, Wisconsin. Since beginning my legal practice, I have focused it on helping injured people obtain just compensation for injuries caused by others not being careful and assisting people accused of a crime through the criminal justice process.
