Verdicts and Published Decisions


As a former Senior Staff Attorney at American Family Mutual Insurance Company, I have experience in personally handling litigation, litigation management, and claims advising. This experience provides me with a unique perspective and knowledge of the insurance business, which allows me to provide value added services to my clients. Specifically, I am mindful of timely and accurate reporting to advance proper claim reserving, severity, and expense considerations.

I have litigated numerous cases throughout Wisconsin and have tried in excess of 20 jury and court trials, including automobile accidents, dog bite injuries, adulterated food injuries, fire losses, and first party property damage cases. In addition, I have briefed, argued, and obtained summary and declaratory judgments in such areas as automobile and homeowners’ insurance coverage, underinsured motorist insurance coverage, contractor governmental immunity, school district immunity, and construction defect matters.
