Attorney Profile

Michael Higgins, Principal

Dane County, Wisconsin divorce and family law attorney offering a range of services to clients

For 15 years, I have been privileged to represent clients throughout Dane, Iowa and Sauk counties with their family law and divorce issues. My commitment to the area’s families and individuals has assisted them to obtain the best solution to their legal problems at the lowest cost possible. Many years ago, I decided to open my own firm to have a more direct impact on personal service to clients and keeping fees as low as possible. Every case that I work on comes with a unique set of challenges, and I can take the time to listen to my clients and formulate a strategy that gives each individual client the best chance for a successful outcome tailored to each client's needs.

A focus on divorce and family law issues with personal attention to each client

I have dedicated my practice to the areas of divorce and family law, involving cases that involve child custody, child support, property division, post-divorce placement and custody modifications, and paternity. I also provide clients with general counsel if they choose a do-it-yourself divorce. Whether an issue can be addressed through amicable negotiation and mediation or requires aggressive litigation, I am fully prepared to provide clients with effective representation and the individual attention that is the basis for success.
