Rated By Super Lawyers Lisa Friedrich


Lisa Friedrich believes that family relationships can and should continue to grow and be protected in whatever new form the family takes after a break-up. Providing these services to clients, educating them in the process and doing so in a compassionate, cost-effective manner is at the forefront of her work. Lisa focuses her practice on family law, including mediation, custody litigation, and divorce and paternity actions. She also assists clients in non-traditional family issues, premarital agreements, wills, health care powers of attorney and residential real estate transactions. Lisa has extensive experience as a mediator of family disputes and is a trained practitioner of collaborative family law, but she is also an effective litigator. She has taught lawyers at continuing legal education courses for the State Bar of Wisconsin and lawyers-to-be at the UW Law School. Lisa joined the firm in 1988, after working for one year as a law clerk for then Dane County Circuit Court Judge Moria Krueger. She became a partner in 1992.
