Our Lawyers

Areas of Specialization

Medical Malpractice & Healthcare

Lawsuits against physicians, hospitals, nurses, pharmacists and healthcare providers are all too common. These actions challenge the reputation, experience and integrity of the providers involved.

Appellate Advocacy

Cases do not always end after trial. At LKG, our experienced attorneys have handled appeals at all level of the Federal and State Court Systems including all of Wisconsin’s Court of Appeals, Wisconsin Supreme Court, United States Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit and the United States Supreme Court

Municipal & Local Government

LKG has long represented municipal and county government and governmental agencies throughout the State of Wisconsin. With a significant governmental practice, LKG has been involved in defending police officers, firefighters, prison guards, jails, county operated medical and nursing facilities.

Dentistry & Oral Surgery

The dental sciences are a separate area of medicine practiced by professionals with individualized training and degrees. Too often, lawyers who work on general health care matters contend they are competent to defend dental professionals and, yet, their experience in this practice area is virtually nonexistent.

Licensing & Agency Reviews

Not all legal issues involve a lawsuit. In fact, many times the most serious legal ramifications involving professionals, especially in the medical and dental arena, are attacks on their licensure to practice. Through their representation of health care professionals, the lawyers at LKG are intricately involved.

Nursing Home & Assisted Living

Although similar and often intertwined with medical malpractice cases, the defense of nursing home and other assisted living facilities involves separate statutory requirements and issues that are exclusive to this medical setting.

Professional Liability & Services

Any profession offering advice or services to a client has exposure to liability. At LKG, handling professional liability is what we do. In addition to medical professionals, the attorneys at LKG have represented clients in other professional matters such as real estate brokers, lawyers, insurance agents, architects, engineers, IT professionals, and computer web and system developers.

Healthcare Policy & Corporate Services

Behind the scenes, healthcare groups, practitioners and clinics need advice on establishing appropriate policies, procedures and/or general advice on legal issues. In these situations, it is best to turn to lawyers that know the complete cycle of healthcare related legal ramifications.

Personal Injury

If you are injured in an automobile accident or due to the negligence of another, turn to the lawyers who know both sides of the law. LKG’s defense orientation provides their lawyers with the perspective of knowing the ways to effectively prosecute an injury claim. Having the insight of understanding how cases are defended, LKG can proficiently maneuver and combat the obstacles to reimbursement for your injury.

Although best known for the defense of medical malpractice lawsuits, LKG attorneys have successfully represented all professions against allegations of negligence, breach of contract, and other perceived errors or omissions.
