When injured, each of us deserves to recover and adapt free from unnecessary worry. Attorney Feltham is committed to providing compassionate, confident representation to clients living with the aftermath of an injury. The law cannot undue physical harm, but Attorney Feltham will work tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcomes, so that individuals can move on.

Outside of work, Attorney Feltham loves being with his spouse and young children.


Attorney Feltham has dedicated his professional life to fighting for workers’ rights. He decided to pursue a legal career while representing coworkers as a union shop steward at his workplace. Before law school, he worked as a labor and community organizer in New York City, and volunteered at a nonprofit legal clinic in Berkeley, California.

Attorney Feltham joined Hawks Quindel, S.C., in 2018, after serving as a Staff Attorney in the Dane County Courthouse. As a Staff Attorney, he honed his legal research and writing expertise by drafting judicial decisions on legal disputes, ranging from pro se prisoner litigation to multimillion dollar corporate contract clashes.

During his time at the University of Wisconsin Law School, Attorney Feltham gained valuable practical experience – experience that he continues to rely upon. As a member of UW Law’s Neighborhood Law Clinic, he represented clients dealing with personal tragedy, fighting workplace discrimination, and standing up to wrongful evictions. He has been tested in the courtroom, having tried a case in front of a jury as a clinical law student, and second-chaired a criminal jury trial as a clerk. He also draws upon his experience as an intern at the Department of Workforce Development’s Equal Rights Division, where he conducted employment discrimination investigations and drafted decisions for the Equal Rights Division’s Administrative Law Judges.

I really don’t know how to put this in words to express how happy, satisfied, and really just overwhelmed with a sense of justice being handed out on my behalf. This big corporate work comp insurer treated me wrong, but before I decided to give up, I contacted Hawks Quindel Law Firm. It was the best decision I’ve made in a long time.

I met with Attorney Jakob Feltham, and right off the top I had a good feeling about this guy. He seemed genuinely concerned and compassionate about my situation, and when I met the rest of the team who would also be dealing with my case, I really felt more optimistic about my legal situation. Taking on these giant insurance corporations can be very intimidating, but I had an amazing team of lawyers on my side, and I came out on top. Without going on and on about how great this law firm is, I can only tell you this: Jakob Feltham is a top notch attorney. Without any hesitation, and without any doubt, I can promise you that Jakob Feltham and Hawks Quindel will go to bat for you with everything they’ve  got. You don’t need to be wealthy to afford them, because they don’t get paid until you get paid. Most importantly, they will fight for your rights and see that you receive justice. Do yourself a favor and contact Jakob Feltham at Hawks Quindel.
