Award Winning Wisconsin

Personal Injury Lawyers

We Are Dedicated to Serving and Protecting our clients and Community

We have a boutique practice that is dedicated only to plaintiffs’ personal injury and insurance litigation

Wisconsin attorneys may focus their practice in any area of Wisconsin law. Many Wisconsin attorneys practicing personal injury law have high-volume practices (“mills”) or general practices where personal injury makes up a low percentage of their experience as lawyers (“dabblers”). Pasternak & Zirgibel S.C. is not a mill and does not dabble. We are experienced and responsive lawyers focused only on plaintiffs’ personal injury and insurance litigation.












Experienced, Responsive Personal Injury Attorneys

Pasternak & Zirgibel’s work is based on a commitment to serving and protecting our clients and community. Together our lawyers have worked over 55 years obtaining first-rate results, which is why our firm is continually held up as being one of Wisconsin’s top personal injury law firms. In addition, unlike many Milwaukee personal injury lawyers, our law firm advertises minimally limiting the number of clients we work with. As a result, our clients work directly with senior partners who are experienced and responsive.
