As a former municipal judge I have overseen all sorts of cases across the years. Be it real estate, criminal litigation or property ownership I have made decisions and thought critically about all the things that can tip a case verdict that hangs in the balance. It was no easy task, and there were even times when it brought great stress to my life, but the lessons I have learned have helped me to establish what I believe to be an honest and efficient firm of law under my own wings. No longer sitting in the judge’s seat, I operate Duren Law Offices and also deal with personal clients in my own time. As a private legal advisor I have often wondered what connections can truly be made between cases, if any. In this article I review some of these critical thoughts for the casual reader and entry level follower of legislation.

Many legal advisors and attorneys make the mistake of applying the same modes of thinking to different cases expecting to see the results continue in a uniform manner. Such is the danger of specialised, individual attorneys that claim to be experts in a single field. In my personal experience as a judge and attorney I have found consistently that flexible, renewed thinking is most beneficial when approaching new cases. Experience is highly important and the education that one has received is invaluable, but putting them practice in new scenarios is an entirely different matter and requires real integrity.

The team that I have assembled over at Duren Law Offices has helped me to defend these values in the world of legal advice and action. Holding close the idea that we must be innovative at every turn has enabled me to create an environment for creative thinkers that can adapt to any case no matter the field. Hence why over at Duren Law Offices we observe a great deal of legal fields, many of which were overseen by myself personally as a district judge. From personal injury to property deeds the ethics remain the same for each client. Dedication to the case and and clarity of communication. Connecting cases together is difficult, as is the same with legal fields, but after practicing many different cases for a range of clients one realises that solid ethical foundations and tenets of practice are essential to maintaining integrity.

Christopher Duren founded Duren Law Offices and has helped the company continue to grow through the years. The company was founded in 2007 and operated in Wisconsin. They specialize in many fields of litigation, which is reassuring to any clients in need of legal assistance.

Real Estate Law is one of the fields Duren Law specializes in. The sub categories include residential sales and purchases, for sale by owner, condominium association formation that include commercial sales and purchases, land contracts, deeds, easements, leases, and 1031 tax-free exchanges. Duren Law helps buyers and sellers draft the offer to purchase documents, review the title documents and attend the closing. They also have relationships with lenders, real estate agents and appraisers to help clients with all of their real estate needs.

Many people seek legal help when starting a new company. Duren Law has this covered. They can help with starting a business, forming a corporation or Limited Liability Company (LLC), drafting business contracts and agreements, non-competition agreements, stock purchase agreements, debt collection, construction liens and the sale and purchase of businesses. Duren Law can help clients with all of their business legal needs so they can get on with running their business.

Unfortunately many people must deal with divorce and family law. Duren Law specializes in divorce, child custody, child support, post-divorce modification, paternity, contempt, adoption, pre-marital agreements, domestic abuse restraining orders, mediation and adoption. Whenever children are involved, it is their philosophy that it is best for everyone involved for the parents to cooperate and come to a mutual agreement regarding custody and placement of their children. However, when compromise cannot be achieved, Duren Law will provide clients with experienced and aggressive representation inside and outside of the courtroom at every stage of the family law case. They help clients get on with their lives by helping them pursue all of their parental rights.

Duren Law also specializes in estate planning and wills. They can help with last will and testament, trusts, power of attorney for health care, living will, durable power of attorney for finances, living trusts, guardianship and probate. Duren Law will meet with the client and ensure that all of their specific desires and wishes are addressed and put into writing for the client and their heirs.
