  • Kirk Obear has litigated over 500 jury trials. Attorney Obear's advocacy has resulted in thousands of jury acquittals, amendments, or dismissals from defense motions filed on behalf of his clients. Every year since 2007, he has been in Wisconsin SuperLawyers®, a distinction reserved for the state's top 5% of attorneys.
  • Nicole A. Muller has been selected as a Rising Star for the third year in a row! Mueller has a strong passion and eternal fire that feeds her drive and pushes her to be a strong and zealous advocate for all her clients.
