As a husband, father, and business owner, I understand many of the concerns and perspectives of my estate planning and business clients. Onsager Law Office exists first and foremost to understand the needs and goals of our clients, and then to apply my professional experience and education to best advance our clients' individual goals in light of the law.
My clients benefit from my years of private practice experience in the areas of estate planning (wills and trusts), probate, business, contracts, and intellectual property (trademarks, trade secrets and copyrights). They also benefit from my 16 years of experience as a nonpartisan fiscal and policy analyst for the Wisconsin legislature, in which I provided advice on such matters as the restructuring of state government, group healthcare benefits, retirement benefits, employment relations, and ethics. I believe that my experience uniquely positions me to provide analysis of state and federal law, including the related financial, organizational, relationship, and ethical considerations that so often arise in legal matters. I believe that my experience also uniquely positions me to guide clients through law changes and to assist them in working with government agencies.
I am an active, licensed member of the State Bar of Wisconsin and a member of the Dane Couny Bar Asssociation. I am also admitted to practice law before the federal district courts in Wisconsin.
In my free time you will find me exploring the outdoors with my family. However, my family insists that I do beekeeping alone!
