Wage & Hour Litigator
Since joining Hawks Quindel as a law clerk, Attorney Gerloff has been actively involved in wage and hour disputes, and in assisting clients in obtaining the wages they fairly earned. Her work involves matters such as recovery of unpaid minimum wages, compensation for off the clock work, and rectifying improper classifications that resulted in previously unpaid overtime wages.
Social Security Disability Attorney

She is committed to supporting her clients during some of the most challenging periods of their lives and works hard to achieve the best possible outcomes.
At the young age of twelve, Attorney Gerloff knew she wanted to dedicate her professional life to the law, and helping those in need. She volunteered with her hometown’s Teen Court program throughout middle school and high school, where she worked in restorative justice programs designed to aid troubled youths in learning from their mistakes, by offering alternatives to monetary fines.
Before law school, Attorney Gerloff continued to gain experience in legal service to others. During undergrad, she interned with a general practice firm in Jefferson, Wisconsin, assisting in representation of individuals in family, personal injury, and landlord-tenant disputes. Between undergrad and law school, she worked at a debtor’s bankruptcy firm in Milwaukee.
During law school, Attorney Gerloff continued to seek opportunities to help the underrepresented. As a member of the law school’s Frank J.

In her second year of law school, Attorney Gerloff joined Hawks Quindel as a law clerk, where she then devoted her second and third years of law school to working on numerous worker’s compensation, employment, and wage and hour disputes. Now as an attorney, she brings her years of practical experience and dedication to serve and advocate for her clients.
Outside of the office, Attorney Gerloff spends time outdoors, including camping with her family, attending music concerts ranging from classical to electronic, and doing arts and crafts — especially painting.
