May 2019 Archives

Welcome to our new, revised website. Whether you are a past client, friend, or someone just looking for legal help, we appreciate your interest in Hertel Law, S.C. I’m used to saying “we” when it comes to this firm, as we have always provided help to those in need through a team effort. Our paralegals, Sue, Brenda and Arlene are a vital part of how we respond to, communicate with, and plan and prepare for meeting our clients’ needs. In the past, I have had a number of attorneys who have been mentored by and/or worked for or with me, and have always relied on them for covering client cases when I could not. Two former partners, Steve Gibbs and Sarah Harless, have gone on to become Circuit Court Judges, reflecting the quality of reputation this firm has enjoyed. Most recently, I have become a sole practitioner for the first time in my nearly 43 years of practicing law, which means that if you hire this firm, I will be your attorney. As talented and capable as my colleagues have been, I have made a commitment to be the attorney you still want on your side for a long time to come. As I often respond when asked when I’ll retire, I have two responses:

1) When there are no more crimes or injury accidents; or

2) When I finally appear in the 24 Wisconsin counties where I have not yet appeared in their courts.

I greatly enjoy helping people through difficult circumstances and like to think I have made a difference in how I have affected the results in their lives. I intend for that to continue. Just ask our landlord who is negotiating a new lease through mid-2021 at the minimum. Please don’t hesitate to take advantage of our free initial consultations, email us with your concerns, or stop in if you’re a former client and just wish to say hello. Also feel free to look at our revitalized Facebook page as well. It is our goal to provide you the best possible legal representation and advice whether in having to go to trial, or determining a way that it is not necessary in satisfactory mediation or negotiations. We want you to continue to view us as the law firm you still want on your side. Thanks, Harry.

The legal definition of negligence

When a car accident happens, one or more parties may be negligent for its occurrence. However, Wisconsin residents and others should know that negligence is a specific legal term with certain elements that must be fulfilled. For example, it must be shown that there was a duty of care that was violated. It also must be demonstrated that there was a financial loss caused by the negligence of another person or entity.

Optical illusion crosswalk tries to address distracted driving

As summer approaches, the topic of distracted driving is an increasingly important one. The weather is getting better and children are playing outdoors, meaning that drivers need to be especially careful and attentive behind the wheel. Teen drivers, who are some of the most likely to drive distracted, will be spending more time behind the wheel as they work summer jobs and travel.
