Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&A

I have worked in family law exclusively for about 15 years. Four years ago, I started Kowalski Family Law specifically to combine my experience in the quality and resources of large firms with the personal attention and manageable legal fees of a smaller firm.

Throughout my career, I have represented clients of diverse financial, ethnic, social, and cultural backgrounds.  Experience gained through participation in hundreds of court hearings allows me to serve my clients across the entire spectrum of family issues..

I routinely lecture on family and child-related topics at seminars sponsored by the State Bar of Wisconsin and other legal organizations.  For example, in 2010, I was Wisconsin’s representative to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers Community Property Symposium in Seattle.  From 2015-2017, I was named by my peers as a Rising Star by SuperLawyers, a lawyer review publication. I served as an adjunct professor on a variety of legal topics, including family law, criminal law, and legal research.  

Activity and service in the legal community is also important to me.  I served on the board of the State Bar of Wisconsin Children and the Law Section and Family Law Section.  Membership through the American Inns of Court provides me an excellent opportunity to stay on top of current legal developments and engage with respected colleagues and judges.

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. What papers do I file to get a OFP added to my divorce?
A: It is possible to obtain a sort of "no contact" order in the divorce, but it is somewhat different than a restraining order. I recommend that you speak with a divorce lawyer to ensure the statements added to your divorce judgment accomplish what you wish.
Q. what can I do if my wife will not give me the taxes from the last 3 years as I have requested for our divorce
A: You can request the information through the formal discovery process, which is written questions and requests for documents that your wife must answer and provide. You may also request that the judge order her to provide them to you if you have a conference in the near future.
