A Name You
Can Trust TM
David P. Werley
David decided to become an attorney while working in the health insurance industry, where he worked for nine years. It was during his legal education where he discovered his passion for understanding how the law impacts everyday people going through the most difficult moments of their lives.
Blue collar in his communication and approach, David prides himself on explaining complex laws in ways that non-lawyers can understand. David's inherent personality of helping others, combined with his intense advocacy for the same, made his landing spot in family law and personal injury a perfect match.
David's experience as guardian ad litem, representing the children's interests in family law cases, allow him to inform his clients on likely outcomes in their cases. David encourages his clients to take reasonable positions in family law matters, but also reminds his clients no matter how reasonable his position is, he has little power over how reasonable the other side decides to be. It is when the opposing party becomes unreasonably that he wears the hat of fierce litigator, vigorously advocating for his client's position.
Outside of work, David enjoys his free time by coaching kids' soccer teams, camping with his family, slaying grilled foods, and like everyone else in this neck of the woods, cheering on the Packers. David is always open for recommendations on nachos as well, as he is well-known for being a nacho connoisseur.
