One of the Best

Jerry handled thousands of personal injury claims and tried hundreds of cases to verdict or decision. He had an extensive win record in the appellate courts in Wisconsin. He truly was a “trial lawyer’s lawyer”. He was known throughout Wisconsin as “one of the best”.

Jerry recently passed away and practiced law until the very end. He taught Attorney Myska and Attorney Welch about the practice of law, the importance of treating clients like family, and how to stand up to the so-called “bullies” in the courtroom. His legacy continues through Attorneys Myska and Welch. Myska and Welch never back down from insurance companies when standing up for clients. They’re tough as nails in the courtroom.
