Hammett, Bellin & Oswald, LLC, is an experienced multi-practice law firm based in Appleton, Wisconsin. Our firm helps clients work through personal injury, criminal defense, business, and family law issues.
When you are suffering from an injury after an accident, you are likely facing significant expenses like medical bills and inconvenient changes to your day-to-day life. You might also have to take a leave of absence from work to recover, costing you both in wages and advancement opportunities. You have the right to seek compensation for these expenses through a personal injury claim. A personal injury claim is an insurance claim that can help you get the money you need to cover all of your needs after an injury caused by another party's negligence.
Being charged with a criminal offense can be intimidating. Do not let this fear paralyze you – you can defend your case with help from a competent criminal defense attorney. Defending against a criminal charge requires evidence and an extensive knowledge of the laws applicable to a case. Our team is prepared to handle any criminal charge from a high-level felony to a misdemeanor.
When you are facing a criminal charge, you can be facing life-changing penalties like jail time, high fines, and the loss of certain liberties. Defending your case requires the development of a custom legal strategy, which can potentially involve seeking help through a diversion program. Work with our team to determine the best way to defend against your charge. An effective legal defense strategy can mean the difference between being convicted and serving life-changing penalties or having your charge dismissed or downgraded.
In many ways, working through family law issues like divorce, asserting parental rights, determining child custody arrangements, and interacting with the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families can be more stressful than working through other types of legal issues because these rulings can change your relationships with your children, your former partner, and other members of your family. When you need representation in one of these legal areas, you need to work with a lawyer who can handle your case with compassion and work to reach a fair, beneficial agreement that meets all involved parties' needs.
When you are injured because of another party's negligence, you can suffer financially as well as physically and emotionally. Instead of allowing an injury to bankrupt you and your family, consider filing a personal injury claim to seek compensation for your damages. Our team of experienced personal injury lawyers works with clients in Neenah, Appleton, The Village of Fox Crossing, and other parts of Winnebago County to help them seek the compensation they need to cover their injury-related expenses.
We help clients who have been injured in car accidents, truck accidents, slips and falls, dog bites, and many other types of accident seek compensation for their damages. We also work with individuals who have lost loved ones in accidents to seek compensation through wrongful death claims.
Business law is a broad legal area, encompassing employment law, contract disputes, issues related to ownership and intellectual property, and consumer rights. When you are facing a business dispute, whether you are a business owner, employee, shareholder, or a consumer, it is important that you work with an attorney who not only understands the applicable state and federal laws, but understands the human aspect of your case to represent your interests and protect your rights. Examples of cases that fall into this category include OSHA violations, fraud allegations, contract breaches, and business incorporation.
If you are in need of legal guidance through a personal injury claim, a divorce or family-related legal matter, or a criminal charge, work with one of the experienced lawyers at Hammett, Bellin & Oswald, LLC. We can answer your questions and analyze your case to determine the most effective way to proceed, no matter which type of legal issue you are currently facing.
