Record of Success

At Hawks Quindel, we define success as a satisfied client.

We commit to providing you timely information and support throughout our work together. You shouldn’t have to call your lawyer five times to get a response and at Hawks Quindel, you won’t. We strive to communicate with each client on a regular basis. Whether it’s with our quarterly newsletter, an email update, a phone call or a letter, we want you to know what work we are doing on your behalf.

We volunteer at local area legal clinics, serve on community boards, work on pro bono cases and provide support to groups who advance causes like voting access rights, paid sick and safe days for employees, and union organizing, among others.

Rick Badger

Executive Director, AFSCME WI Council 40

Attorney Shapiro was sensitive to my needs and kept me on track with what needed to be done in my post-divorce case. Her guidance was helpful throughout this difficult process and she handled opposing counsel with the right amount of professional “toughness” that represented my best interests. The case was completed in a timely manner and I was thrilled with the outcome.
Ann Balistreri

Post-Judgment Client, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Attorneys and staff returned calls promptly and got answers for me when I had a lot of questions. They made me feel relaxed and comfortable in a really difficult situation and made me realize that I was doing the right thing for myself. I was able to stand up for my own rights knowing they were there to help.
Theresa Wawrzyniak

Employment Discrimination Client, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

HQ attorneys listen to clients’ issues and assess their situations realistically. They keep clients updated and involve them as needed. They negotiated a fair settlement for me and I avoided going to court. I recommend HQ to anyone who needs legal advice regarding their job or who is considering a legal action against an employer.
