My birth on the south side of Chicago in 1948 puts me smack dab in the middle of the Boomer generation.  My family moved to a small Wisconsin town in 1963, making high school difficult because the other kids had all grown up together, knowing nothing of city kids from Chicago.  After entering the University of Wisconsin-Madison, life improved.  College life agreed with me, so much so I tried to do too much, leading to dropping out.  With the Vietnam War raging, enlistment in the Air Force was preferable to the draft and in 1971 I was honorably discharged, having served overseas in Greenland.  Finally earning my UW degree in 1974, a foray into local politics was unproductive and so I was admitted to law school at Santa Clara University in California.  This was the smartest move I ever made since I found a passion for the legal writing I’ve been doing for the past 35 years.When I’m not writing briefs, I like to get to UW football games, cheering the alma mater, and take trips around the golden West.

Law school at Santa Clara University helped me learn legal writing was my forte.  Since graduation, and then admission to the California Bar in 1982, my practice has been almost exclusively limited to appeals and my success rate is better than average.  Of my 40 victories, the most impressive are: Monroe County DHS v. Kelli B., 2004 WI 48, 271 Wis.2d 51, 678 N.W.2d 831 (incestuous parenthood statute held unconstitutional as applied to mother whose children were product of repeated assaults by her father) and State v. Lewis, 2004 WI App 211, 277 Wis.2d 446, 690 N.W.2d 668 (life sentence reversed with directions to dismiss).  I appeared before the California Supreme Court in In re David Roy Bakke (1986), 42 Cal.3d 84, 227 Cal.Rptr. 663, 720 P.2d 11 and was successful in part for my client in Pereira v. U.S. Postal Service (9thCir.1991), 942 F.2d 577.Besides my California license, I am admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeals for the 7th and 9thCircuits, the U.S. District Courts for the Northern District of California and the Eastern and Western Districts of Wisconsin and all the courts of Wisconsin.I love my work and look forward to writing the briefs for your appeal.
