White collar crimes such as fraud, money laundering, or securities and antitrust violations, bear severe punishment and a conviction for these types of charges can affect the rest of your life. These criminal investigations tend to be lengthy and complex, and a defendant may undergo a thorough sweep of their financial records.

By Raymond Dall’Osto, Brianna Meyer, and Jason Luczak

Milwaukee property tax assessment attorney

By Attorney Chris Strohbehn

I represent retailers and other taxpayers across the state challenging their property taxes. The municipalities hire lawyers to defend them in court, and political figures speak out in the court of public opinion against them. They are often chastised for exercising their constitutional and statutory rights to challenge their taxes. Every taxpayer has these same fundamental rights. When those taxpayer challenges upset the status quo, you see “dark store” referendums across the state and proposed legislation designed to make their taxpayer challenges procedurally and substantively more difficult. The common refrain along the way is that these taxpayers are “not paying their fair share” and are “causing other taxpayers to have to pay more.” But who is really to blame?

Milwaukee, WI criminal law attorney for expungement

By Ray Dall’Osto

After passing the Wisconsin Assembly earlier this year as A.B. 33, the Wisconsin Senate adjourned this year’s legislative session, without taking action to approve the parallel bipartisan expungement bill pending before it, S.B. 39. The proposed expungement reform bill, which has long been supported by the State Bar of Wisconsin and was favorably considered in previous years and legislative sessions, would change state law involving getting a criminal record expunged. If passed by the Senate and signed by Governor Evers, the expungement reform bill will significantly help alleviate the negative impact a criminal record can have on individuals seeking employment, housing, volunteer work, and in other areas where the stigma of a conviction can pose a roadblock, even in cases where the crime was nonviolent, a misdemeanor or lower-class felony, and/or committed many years ago.

Wisconsin is known for its long, relentless winters. Wisconsinites experience more than 30 snowstorms each year, forcing us to adapt to work, play, and drive in harsh conditions. To those who are no strangers to the snow, driving in inclement weather is normal, but accidents still happen. If you have been in a collision, understanding the factors surrounding liability for a winter weather car accident claims can prepare you for how to proceed.

Determining Liability

Rain or shine, drivers are expected to follow safe driving laws. When winter weather hits, it is important to take extra precautions by taking it slow, allowing extra travel time, and remembering that sudden braking and steering can cause loss of vehicle control. Not all car accidents cause life-altering injuries, but property damage is likely to occur in even the most minor fender benders.

Often, these issues can be solved through honest, open communication. However, sometimes a dispute can turn severe and ugly very quickly, which is when an experienced commercial litigation attorney can help. How a business is set up can also come into play.

Talking the Issues Out

First and foremost, successful business partnerships are based on the ability to communicate, at no time is this more important then when there is a disagreement between partners.
