My husband reached out to Terry Polish for a lemon law issue on our new 2023 Truck. It's been in the shop more than out in the last 10 mo and overqualified for WI Lemon Law. We have lost thousands of dollars on cx vacations, gas bringing it in numerous times, transmission rebuilt 4x, etc. When Terry called, we were eager to ask questions, look to him for advice , and see what our options were. He was rude, told us he needed to see reports which we could easily send him- but just asked based off of the dates, money, and documentation we DID already send- wanted his thoughts or any emotion at all on what to do. It's been so stressful. He refused to answer us, just said he wants manufacture reports, and when my husband asked if he thought we had a case- he literally said " if you don't want to send the reports, that's fine" my husband was like "what?" We CAN send them but just wanted to talk to you as a person based on what initiated this and get your thoughts." ????????!!!! He then said " I don't want your case" and hung up on us! I don't even have a response at this moment and have no idea why he was so rude and unprofessional to us when we are the "client" calling for help! Unbelievable. We called a different lawyer, we're treated with respect and compassion for all we have been through, and we're treated very professionally. Do not go to this Terry Polich. I've never been treated like that in my life and can honestly say I have no idea what the heck just happened or why!

I am very happy that I hired Andrew Hysell of LawtonCates to represent me in the sales of my gas stations and convenience stores. My stores were family-owned for three generations and a great deal was at stake—both personal and financial. Selling gas stations and convenience stores is highly complex, involving a variety of legal, regulatory and commercial factors. Andrew and his firm had the capacity to address each one. During such a complex sales process, there is a steady stream of challenges that can threaten the deal if not properly resolved. Andrew represented my interests effectively while simultaneously finding opportunities for building consensus to keep us moving forward. Based on my experience with LawtonCates, I highly recommend Andrew’s representation for complex business transactions.

I highly recommend Dixon Gahnz and LawtonCates for all of your legal needs. Dixon took the time to listen to our case and provided guidance to us every step of the way. He always made sure he listened to our concerns while explaining the process, strategies and options we had moving forward. We always felt he had our best interests in mind. We will never go anywhere else.
