There’s a reason we’ve been in business for over 100 years.

Since 1895, families and businesses throughout Greater Milwaukee have relied on Petrie + Stocking to solve a variety of complex legal challenges. Today, we focus on five core areas of law: Estates + Trusts, Real Estate Law, Labor + Employment Law, Business + Commercial Law, and Litigation. Small businesses continue to count on our seasoned attorneys for a full range of legal needs, from formation through transactions, governance and succession planning. From start to finish, we treat every client the way we would want to be treated – with respect, responsiveness and honesty at all times. Because our experience matters. But your experience matters more.

Although our counseling and careful drafting of contracts, trusts and policies helps our clients avoid litigation, there are times when resorting to the courts is inevitable. When litigation becomes necessary or unavoidable we have the skills and experience to protect the interests of our clients.
