Matthiesen, Wickert & Lehrer, S.C., (“MWL’s”) insurance defense attorneys have been a cornerstone of the firm’s litigation practice since the firm was founded in 1990. We excel at the efficient and cost-effective handling of defense matters for self-insured corporations, insurers, reinsurers and their policyholders throughout Wisconsin and across the country. Our defense attorneys’ experience spans the liability spectrum, from complex product liability, construction defect, premises liability, and automobile collisions to civil rights, bad faith, wrongful death, and environmental claims.

MWL is proud to serve as panel counsel for a number of the country’s most respected insurers and reinsurers. Our defense attorneys represent clients, large and small, in complicated arbitration and alternative dispute resolution proceedings. We also defend our national clients and their policyholders in state and federal courts throughout the country.

MWL is devoted to providing the “best defense value” in the Midwest. Lacking the significant overhead with which “larger, downtown firms” are necessarily burdened, we are able to promote efficiency and cost-effectiveness with each file referred to us. Through the use of experienced defense attorneys, low overhead, and qualified insurance legal assistants, MWL is able to provide big city law firm results at a country firm cost, while at all times zealously representing the rights of you and your insureds.

Success does not depend on the size of the law firm; it depends on the quality of the lawyers and the results they produce. MWL is dedicated to providing its clients with the most competent and vigorous defense to its clients from pre-suit demands through trial and appeal.
