Our Personal Injury and General Trial Practice

While Wisconsin personal injury law is complicated, having a qualified lawyer by your side can make the process of seeking compensation from negligent parties infinitely easier. Herrick Law Office, S.C. caters to clients’ needs when handling a wide range of personal injury and general trial practice cases. We work quickly to resolve your matter as soon as possible, and we operate on a competitive contingent fee basis or, where appropriate, on a reasonable hourly rate basis. This means you pay no fees or costs unless you collect a settlement or verdict for your personal injuries. On general litigation cases, you are charged a reasonable hourly rate plus out of pocket costs and disbursements incurred in pursuing your case. The way we see it, your case should be handled as quickly and economically as possible, whether on a contingent fee basis or hourly rate basis.

A lawyer from our firm stays with you through the entirety of your claim, and we take cases to the appellate court levels whenever necessary. We work hard to ensure you receive the best possible results and will not hesitate to take a suit to court if it means obtaining a better outcome. That said, many of our cases result in settlements because the opposition knows we do all we can to protect our clients’ rights. We have handled a number of multi-million dollar cases throughout our careers.
