Arbitration & Mediation, Divorce, Family Law, Business Law, Real Estate Law, Construction Law, Personal Injury, Employment Law, Insurance Claims



I formed CCMA SOLUTIONS, LLC (Consultation, Collaboration, Mediation & Arbitration) and mainly focus on Alternative Dispute Resolutions as a Certified Mediator. My 27 years of practice as a lawyer and 12 years as a Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge, along with my Mediation Certification from Northwestern University, give me a unique ability to resolve a multitude of cases fairly and efficiently without having to waste time and money litigating them in court. Although many of my cases are Divorce and Paternity, I have also Mediated a multitude of topics including: Contract disputes, Landlord/Tenant leases, Probate disputes, Real Estate issues, Accidents and Personal Injury cases, Partnerships and Corporate disputes, Customer Complaints, Money Judgments and Human Resource issues are just a few of the areas I have successfully settled through mediation. Mediation works well to settle any type of civil litigation. I have resolved claims that have not yet been filed, cases that are pending and post-judgment motions. Divorce Mediation is cheaper, faster and allows both of you to have an amicable divorce while getting the most input into the final agreement for your judgement of divorce. I can generally help you resolve all of your issues for divorce in on full day of Mediation. Need to resolve a Small Claims Case or a Real Estate dispute then if both parties agree to come to Mediation I can help you both reach an amicable resolution and stay out of court. Litigating any case in court is a lengthy and expensive process that you have no control in the outcome. Mediate don't Litigate your case! Resolve it today with CCMA! View More ›
