Private Attorney List

The following list of attorneys, who have experience working with health care issues, was compiled as a courtesy to members of the Wisconsin Medical Society. The Society does not specifically endorse any of the attorneys listed, and the absence of an attorney’s name from this list does not indicate that an attorney is not qualified to handle health care issues. Attorneys are listed in alphabetical order and any specializations noted in italics were provided by the attorneys. Also included on the right are names of law firms and additional, non-legal resources.
