Attorney Tom Grieve, recently named a top Wisconsin attorney by Super Lawyers ("Wisconsin Rising Star -2013"), an independent nationally acclaimed attorney rating organization, primarily focuses his practice on criminal defense, traffic, and firearm rights. Tom spent two years representing the State of Wisconsin in criminal court prosecuting cases and prior to that was in the Court of Appeals, District II, where he worked on exclusively criminal matters. He is proud to represent clients throughout the state and nation in their criminal and firearm matters.
