Divorce and Family Law | DeWitt LLP Law Firm

When faced with a legal issue that impacts your family, you need first-rate legal representation. That’s exactly what you will get at DeWitt.  Our family law attorneys are consistently named by local, state, and national organizations as the best in their respective fields. Whether you are seeking advice on an impending divorce, a dispute over custody and placement of children, a child support or maintenance issue, or need guidance through an upcoming adoption, our attorneys have the experience you need.

Family law matters often address important personal issues such as child custody and placement, adoption, and dissolution of long-term relationships. We know that these areas present more than just legal issues for our clients—they are often life-changing personal events. No matter what the circumstance, we will represent you with expertise, sensitivity, care, and respect.

We provide a wide variety of services covering family law issues including divorce, paternity, child placement and custody, child support and maintenance, adoption, surrogacy, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, guardianships (for children and for adults), nursing home issues, and more. Our reputation often encourages favorable resolutions to these sensitive issues for our clients without the need for litigation or a trial, but, when necessary, we have the experience, the skills, and the tenacity you need for effective litigation in the courtroom.

Our family law team also offers services and resources which smaller firms simply can’t provide, such as access to in-house tax attorneys, bankruptcy attorneys, business attorneys, and estate planners as appropriate. For clients with substantial financial issues or complex business interests, this experience and access assures that issues such as tax consequences, preservation of business interests, intellectual property rights, and more are addressed properly and efficiently, without the need and added expense of hiring multiple firms to get your legal needs met.

Our family law attorneys in Madison, Brookfield and Minneapolis have state-wide practices throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin and have represented clients throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota and in the Court of Appeals and Supreme Courts of both Minnesota and Wisconsin.
