While I am relatively new to Wisconsin, I bring years of professional experience to my role as an associate attorney at J. Kippa Law. I have both civil and criminal litigation in my background, but vastly prefer the world of criminal law. My primary experience is as a prosecutor. I am licensed in several states and began my career in Virginia as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney in City of Norfolk where I worked for 8 and ½ years. During my time there, I obtained successful results in a wide variety of felony cases, including homicides, armed robberies, sexual assaults and drug trafficking. I recently relocated to the Fox Valley area and was fortunate to work as an Assistant District Attorney in Outagamie County. In this role, I assisted law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of high level, felony drug trafficking cases. I also served as a member of the Outagamie County Drug Court. I am confident in my ability to translate my litigation skills and knowledge of the criminal justice system into thoughtful, competent representation for those who need it most. I am proud to share Jeff’s commitment to compassionate interaction, consistent communication and individually driven results.
