“I became a lawyer so that I could help people solve their problems.  I enjoy being the advocate and spokesperson for people who feel they are not being heard. It is gratifying to bring peace and resolution to the lives of those that may be struggling with issues they cannot handle on their own. I am proud to do it effectively and efficiently.”

When he is not litigating cases, he is active in his community. Jamie is a video host/correspondent of a cable TV and internet show called “Western Wisconsin Journal.” He has served in volunteer and leadership roles in his church, school district and other local service organizations and is currently serving as President of the Hudson School Board.
