Attorney Kurt F. Ellison Smiling in Black Suit and Dark Tie

I am a Wausau native who previously practiced litigation in the Fox Valley area at a well-respected private practice firm. I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Madison and Marquette University Law School.  During Law School, I served as a judicial intern for a United States District Court Judge as well as for the Honorable Diane Sykes of the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. In addition, I served as a member of the editorial board of the Marquette Law Review and was a research assistant for Dean Joseph Kearney.
