    Clients Satisfaction is our Number One Priority


We have more jury experience in real estate matters than any-other firm in Wisconsin.  We handle more residential real estate lawsuits than any firm in the state (80% of our practice).  We have more published appellate and supreme court cases regarding residential real estate than any other law firm in Wisconsin.
We are one of the few law firms that offer a contingency fee contract in regard to residential real estate matters.  We know what your case is worth because of our experience.  We know the technical information surrounding problems like foundations, flooding, structural problems, basements, roofs and septic systems.  We are familiar with the specific law regarding residential real estate disputes.




People tend to forget the details of their situation over time.  Most cases are won based upon the details.  Clients who keep the best notes and have the best documentation are the ones who receive the best results.  Every time something happens with regard to your situation, note the date, the time, the persons involved and a brief description of what happened.  Timelines are very useful in explaining your case to a lawyer or a jury.


“A picture is worth a thousand words.”  This is particularly true with regard to real estate and construction disputes.  Before and after pictures can often tell a story that words can’t convey.  Take a few pictures of whatever is going on periodically.  Even if it is with your cell phone.  This is especially true during seasonal changes and changes in the condition of your project.  These pictures can later be sorted out, but if you don’t have them your lawyer will be working at a disadvantage.


If the person on the other side has the ability to e-mail, you should communicate this way to have a record that anyone can track.    This prevents opponents from changing their story or lying about the facts.  Every time something of any consequence happens, confirm it by e-mail.  E-mail threads can make your case extremely bulletproof.  When you see your lawyer, bring all communications with you.
