A Personal View:

Howard has been practicing law for over 30 years. His practice includes family law, employment law, labor law, healthcare law and corporate law. He practices before state and federal courts and administrative agencies in Wisconsin. In addition to litigation practice, he also acts as a mediator In assisting litigants in resolving complex disputes. 

 

Often referred to as “The best divorce attorney north of Milwaukee,” Howard takes great pride in practicing family law. “I like family law because it is really about taking care of people; people who are often in difficult situations. A divorce demands someone who listens, someone who solves problems and someone who can be passionate, yet objective. Attorneys often forget how people feel. To be a successful attorney, you have to be respectful of people’s feelings. I do not see cases, I see people.“

 

Howard believes the most important part of being a good attorney is listening. He advocates for his clients 100% of the time and can count on one hand the number of employment law cases which he has lost or mediation efforts that were unsuccessful.

 

Howard has been recognized as one of the top attorneys in the Fox Valley. His litigation philosophy is simple. “I strive for attention to detail, preparation and a commitment to excellence.“ This philosophy has resulted in Howard’s high standing among clients and his peers.

A Personal View:

Attorney Stacie L. Dobbe, a Wisconsin licensed attorney, began her career as a human resources professional with a focus on benefits and retirement plans. Wanting to focus more on how to ensure a client’s legacy and family are protected, Stacie transitioned exclusively to Estate Planning, Trust Settlement, and Probate matters. Stacie believes that “life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” She believes that preparation is key in all aspects of life. The best-laid plans can go awry. Life and health are uncertain and proper preparation will help ease this uncertainty.


Stacie is a Kentucky native. She served thirteen years in the United States Navy as an Intelligence Specialist, both Active and Reserve duty, where she was one of the first 50 women assigned to a Pacific Fleet Aircraft carrier, supported Operation Southern Watch, and was deployed in 2003 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.


Stacie has lived in Wisconsin for more than a decade. She is a Southern girl at heart but has embraced the frozen tundra, although not so much the frozen part. She is a huge Kentucky Wildcat fan, “bleeding blue” in all aspects… basketball, football, and the Kentucky Derby. She has adopted the Packers, Brewers and Badger Football, but her husband is still trying to convert her into a Badger Basketball fan.  She loves camping on summer weekends, reading, cooking, baking and entertaining.  She loves music and attends as many concerts as she can. She loves to travel, which is a product of her time in the Navy.


Stacie is a member of the State Bar of Wisconsin. She also is active in her church family, Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, and holds various board positions within the Fox Valley.


Stacie is blessed with a wonderful and very busy family. Her husband Jeremy, a Waupaca native, is also a Wisconsin attorney. Stacie has two very active boys and her two dogs, Kylo Ren and Dixie Rey, complete her busy family.
