When injured, each of us deserves to recover and adapt free from unnecessary worry.

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.

During law school, Attorney Feltham was recognized for “Best Performance” in UW’s course on Equal Employment. He authored an article on employment discrimination that was selected for publication in the Wisconsin Journal of Law, Gender & Society.
Attorney Feltham received his baccalaureate degree in Political Studies from Bard College in New York, and his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Law. He graduated from law school with a concentration in labor and employment law.
