Our Super Team

On behalf of Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C.

Handling a life altering personal injury is difficult. There’s a lot to manage – from treating your injury, to lost wages from taking time off work, to all your other obligations – the last thing you want to think about is how to handle a lawsuit. Hire a Wisconsin Super Lawyer to take on this burden for you.

What Is a Super Lawyer?

Not everyone can be named a Super Lawyer, in fact, only the top 5% of attorneys make it onto the Super Lawyers list each year. They are selected using a “patented multi-stage selection process (U.S. Pat. No. 8,412,564) to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource when searching for legal counsel.”
