Originally from Los Angeles, California, Attorney Gregory Stratz first visited Milwaukee, Wisconsin to visit Marquette University and immediately fell in love with all that Milwaukee, and the state of Wisconsin, has to offer. However, Attorney Stratz was in no way illusioned into believing that Milwaukee is perfect, and upon graduation from Marquette University, Attorney Stratz dove right in to helping address some of the existing inequities within the city, working for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee in direct service with the youth there. It was there that it became clear that many of the issues facing some citizens in Wisconsin had legal recourse, had the individuals only been aware of their rights. This led to Attorney Stratz pursuing a career in law.
Employment Discrimination Attorney
Attorney Stratz adamantly believes that all people should be able to obtain and continue gainful employment without regard to the color of their skin, nationality, gender, disability, arrest and conviction record, need for leave due to personal or medical circumstances, or any other discriminatory reason. With this belief in mind, he works tirelessly for individuals who have been the victims of discrimination in the workplace, including discrimination for an Employees’ exercised rights to paid or unpaid leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the CARES Act.
Employee Benefits Attorney
Attorney Stratz also helps individuals protect their rights to employer promised benefits including Pensions, Long-Term and Short-Term Disability Insurance, Deferred Compensation Plans (such as a 401(k)), and other benefits promised to employees by employers as a part of their employment. Attorney Stratz has experience with these types of claims, and is a zealous advocate when fighting for your promised benefits.
Attorney Stratz graduated, cum laude, from Marquette University Law School in 2020. While in law school Attorney Stratz served as Senior Comment Editor for the Marquette Law Review, in which he also published a Comment “I had a Lakehouse in Tahoe:” The Legal Ramifications of Tapping Lake Tahoe and how it Affects Homeowners, 103 Marq. L. Rev. 267 (2019).
While attending Marquette University Law School, Attorney Stratz volunteered at the Marquette Volunteer legal clinic. He also worked part-time throughout his time there, both as a research assistant for two professors, and as a law clerk—first with a local personal injury firm, and most recently with Hawks Quindel.
When not in the office, Attorney Stratz can often be found on a basketball court (during the colder months), fishing or golfing (during the warmer months), or spending time with his family and dog.
