About

I do primarily family mediation and am currently on the mediation panel for the Milwaukee County Family Division. My services generally include the place for the mediation, as well as a minimum of 2 hours for the session. If more time or sessions are needed, we can schedule at mutually convenient times and dates. I believe I have an ability to listen respectfully to all sides and to keep the parties talking about the real issues that separate them. Often, people identify one complaint when actually it is something totally different that bothers them. I have been in the practice of law for 45 years and most of that time has been spent as a family lawyer. So, I believe that I bring to the table a skill set that enables me to act as a true mediator in helping people reach a place of comfort. I can't say specifically what people like about my style because I don't ask, but more than 80% of my mediations end in an agreement between the parties. I have had attorneys who represent parties who are mediating tell me afterward that they don't know how I got the parties to agree, but they do. I think the fact that I do not lean one way or the other, that I treat both parties as adults, and that I listen and make sure that all sides have as much chance as they need to articulate their concerns, are some of the qualities that litigants like in me.

About

Top Notch Education and Experience. I have never allowed challenges stand in the way of me getting to where I want to go. In 1997, I graduated magna cum laude from UCLA with a degree in Philosophy. During my time at UCLA I was married, had a baby, and commuted two and a half hours per day to attend school. I then decided to attend the University of Michigan Law School. I believe I was the only person in my class who had a child; and for a large portion of my first year I attended school while single parenting my son while my husband was still in Los Angeles. I do not shy away from hard work. In 2000, I earned my juris doctorate from the University of Michigan Law School with the Book Award for the highest exam grade in employment relations. I chose Milwaukee as my home and the place where I wanted to raise my son and Michael, Best and Friedrich, LLP as the firm where I learned how to practice law. I have never regretted that decision. I am still great friends with many of my mentors from my time at Michael Best, even when we are facing each other on opposing sides in the courtroom. I believe that attorneys should be able to go toe-to-toe in the courtroom to represent their clients well while also going to have a beer afterwards. My philosophy is clients are human beings, not legal matters. While my style in the courtroom is very much the large firm style. Be thoroughly prepared and professional at all times while still being aggressive when my client needs that. I have developed into a practitioner that views my clients holistically as persons, not just a "legal matter." I take the time to talk to potential clients over the phone, free of charge, to find out the nature of the legal issue. I do this to determine, before you spend any money, whether I believe I can help you. From that initial telephone call on, I listen to what you have to say in order to determine the best strategy that meets your goals. If I do believe that I can assist you in achieving your goal, I schedule an office consult that lasts longer than a normal initial consult. I need to know all of the facts thoroughly in order to properly advise you with regard to strategy. As a result, there is generally a charge for this initial meeting. I believe we need to come up with an informed game-plan before you can make any decision with regard to moving forward with a matter and paying an initial retainer. Straight-Shooter. I believe in being candid at all times with my clients. It is important to me that my clients and I are a good fit and are on the same page with regard to the representation. I'm not interested in telling you what you want to hear to get a retainer and to only then tell you the "truth" about your matter. If I do not believe it is worth it to you to spend money on a matter, I will tell you that outright. A large portion of my clients come to me after an unpleasant experience elsewhere. After I have taken the time to get to know you, your legal matter, and what you are seeking, I work with you to develop a strategy that makes the most sense for you and your situation. It is from there that I build my services around meeting your goals. I don't jump when opposing counsel says to "jump". I don't push papers around to rack up a client's bill. Opposing counsel may not like that, but you are my client, not the other attorney. When I do billable work, it is because I'm moving my client's case forward in the direction that he or she wants. A Maverick Personality that is Pragmatic. Very little intimidates me. I naturally gravitate to the "David" side of the "David and Goliath" battle. I'm comfortable going against large corporations with teams of attorneys, the Government, and people that believe they are more important than the rest of us, and I know from experience how to handle those types of cases. Outside the Box Fee Structures. I work with my clients with regard to attorney's fees and costs, but I'm a pragmatist, not a push over or unwise business person. I do not provide free legal services. I'm not a non-profit organization, nor am I a volunteer. Rarely will it make business sense for me to take a case entirely on a contingency basis. If you are not willing to put your own finances at risk for you legal matter, then I don't believe you should expect someone else to do so. However, I am at times willing to share that risk with my clients with strong cases where there is a fee-shifting provision under the law. Again, I listen to you, and try to find a solution that makes sense for both of us. I pride myself on attempting to deliver exception services at a cost that is less than what it would cost you for the same type of service across town. I encourage open communication between me and my clients. I do not want you to feel like I'm hitting that timer every time you call me. I do not want a situation where a client is avoiding telling me something or seeking my advice regarding an evolving matter because of fees. As a result, I exercise flexibility in my billing practices to bill for communications in a way that makes sense to both me and you while encouraging open communication. I'm not the type of attorney that always requires a large retainer up front that just sits in a client trust account. However, I do maintain a very firm practice of requiring my clients to pay their invoices on time through a credit or debit card. If a client fails to pay as promised, then I do promptly withdraw from the representation. This policy is necessary in order to employ the flexibility I utilize with regard to the amount that I bill each of my clients. If this philosophy resonates with you, then I invite you to contact me and we can discuss your matter further.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does an immigration attorney do?

Immigration lawyers help their clients through all phases of the immigration process. Experts on immigration law, they are legally qualified to represent U.S. citizens, permanent residents or undocumented immigrants. Immigration lawyers also provide assistance to visitors here on student, work or travel visas, and can represent clients who may have an expired visa or who have overstayed their visa.

You can hire an immigration lawyer to assist you with petitioning for renewing a permanent resident or green card, navigating the naturalization process, submitting an employee-based petition for a work visa, filing a petition for a family member, or representing you or a loved one who is facing detention or deportation, as well as replacing, extending or changing a current visa, green card or work permit. The immigration process is highly complex, with multiple hearings, paperwork and requirements. Hiring a legal expert to represent you can help you make your best effort in the process. When researching immigration lawyers, it is very important to verify their qualifications and find a reputable attorney. Read reviews and verify that the immigration lawyer is licensed by your state before paying any fees.

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer fights on your behalf if you’ve been injured physically, psychologically, economically or in reputation. This injury may be the result of neglect or malicious intent of another person, or it could be at the hands of a business, government or other entity. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law, which is the law of civil wrongs like car accidents, company wrongdoing, unlawful imprisonment and more.

To become qualified to be a personal injury lawyer in the United States, a person must earn a bachelor’s degree, followed by a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from a law school. Most states then require the person to pass the bar exam to become licensed to practice law. Unlike many attorneys who require a retainer, personal injury lawyers often work on contingency fees. This means that in lieu of payment upfront, they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement in case of a win.

What should you look for in a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer will advocate for your legal rights if you’ve been hurt in an accident at work or in daily life, have suffered from medical malpractice, or are struggling to have your insurance carrier cover your needs. It may be helpful to talk with two or three lawyers before selecting one. When looking for a personal injury lawyer, research their reviews and make sure former clients have had good experiences with them. Next, make sure the personal injury lawyer has experience and proven success winning cases similar to yours. Confirm that the lawyer is licensed to provide services in your state. When you find a qualified personal injury lawyer with whom you want to work, freely discuss payment and fees before any work begins. Most lawyers offer a free consultation to learn what your case is about and explain their rates. Personal injury attorneys typically receive a percentage of your settlement (called a contingency fee), so they are paid after the trial or case is complete. Keep in mind that some attorneys have fees that you must pay even if you don’t win your trial. It’s important to understand these details before work begins so you don’t have any unhappy surprises later. Lastly, it’s wise to choose a personal injury lawyer that you have confidence in and with whom you can communicate openly and honestly.

How do you find a good immigration lawyer?

Research is key to finding a good immigration lawyer. The immigration process can be overwhelming and complex, so a trustworthy advocate is critical. When you have identified several eligible candidates, verify their immigration law license to protect yourself and your finances. Once you have a set of licensed immigration lawyers in mind, choose one based on these considerations:

  • Mutual respect: You want an immigration lawyer who treats you and your family with kindness and consideration. You’ll do the same for them.
  • Availability: Before hiring, note if they have responded promptly to your emails and calls. You don’t want to hire someone you have to chase around.
  • Proven success: Read former client reviews and research their success rate with cases similar to yours.
  • Transparent rates: Ask directly about what their rates are, how they bill, and what they estimate your legal fees will be. Ask if they will sign a fee agreement, and get receipts for all fees paid.
  • Verify who will handle your case: Sometimes junior lawyers work on firm cases. This is okay, as long as you have discussed it and are comfortable with it. When junior lawyers or paralegals are working on your case, ask if the hourly rate is lower.
  • Be wary of anyone who promises you specific results: No case is certain, and the immigration lawyer should be honest about what you can expect.

How much does an immigration lawyer cost?

Immigration lawyers are experts in the nuances of the highly complex United States immigration system. They help clients of all backgrounds petition for immigration status and become U.S. citizens, and can represent clients who are facing deportation or detention. Nationally, the cost people pay for immigration lawyers averages $500-$1,010. The services you need will have a huge effect on your costs. For routines cases, such as applying for a travel visa, an immigration lawyer may be able to confidently quote you a set price, while more open-ended cases may be billed at an hourly rate of $200-$500, or more, depending on the reputation and experience of the firm and lawyer. Before hiring an immigration lawyer, ask what their plan for your case is and what expected costs may be. Many immigration lawyers work from retainers, and request a set amount of money upfront from which to work. For example, a lawyer who charges $300 per hour may estimate $4,000 for a standard family-based immigration case, the common process in which a U.S. citizen petitions for permanent residency for their spouse, fiancee or family members.
