Summary

Richard focuses his practice on personal injury cases, as well as representing individuals who have been injured at work. In addition to his personal injury practice, Richard also handles labor law matters. Richard represents the Independent Employees Union at Hillshire Farm Company, Inc., the Banta Book Group Maintenance Department, and Local Union 78T: Voith Fabrics. Richard’s working knowledge and understanding of municipal laws and codes along with his trial experience and comfort in the courtroom served him well in his role as the lead prosecutor and Town Attorney for a prominent local municipality for over 20 years.

Richard has handled complex litigation matters in front of both the Wisconsin Supreme Court and Wisconsin Court of Appeals, including oral arguments in front of each court. He was appointed by the Wisconsin Supreme Court to serve three terms on the District Committee of the Office of Lawyer Regulation, which oversees the ethical and professional conduct of all attorneys admitted to practice within the State of Wisconsin.

Richard has consistently been named a Wisconsin “Super Lawyer” for years, placing him in the top 5% of all attorneys in Wisconsin. He was recently honored as one of the Top 100 Litigation Lawyers in the State of Wisconsin by the American Society of Legal Advocates. Fox Cities Magazine rates Richard a “Premium Pick” in personal injury and worker’s compensation law. Richard was recently recognized and honored by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel as one of the “Nation’s Top One Percent of Attorneys.”

Richard is a member of the Wisconsin Association for Justice (formerly the Wisconsin Association of Trial Lawyers) and has been elected to the organization’s Board of Governors. Richard has served WAJ as a Program Committee Chairperson, which allowed him to oversee the Continuing Legal Education Seminars for trial lawyers across the state.
