The Everson Law Firm Elves are at it again!  This year the attorneys and staff of Team Everson decided to focus our holiday season charitable efforts on our furry, feathered and four-legged friends.  We collected and donated much-needed supplies and made an additional financial donation to Green Bay Campus - Wisconsin Humane Society to help them to continue to do such great work in rescuing, healing and finding fur-ever homes for animals in need and who are lucky enough to receive their care!

LEGAL EXPERTISE

On December 3, 2021, Attorney Brian Anderson gave a presentation at the Wisconsin Defense Counsel Winter Seminar, titled “Three’s Company But Can Feel Like A Crowd: Ethical Challenges When Representing Insurers and Insureds.” The presentation involved discussion of ethical obligations and challenges when representing both an insurance company and an insured party in the same litigation. The Wisconsin Defense Counsel (WDC) is a statewide organization of attorneys dedicated to the defense of Wisconsin citizens and businesses, the maintenance of an equitable civil justice system, and the education of its members.

Charities are in even greater need of our generosity these days. The Everson Law Firm was thrilled to continue our Christmastime tradition of donating to a local charity, the Child Life program at HSHS St. Vincent Hospital. There are many giving elves at Team Everson. From those who donated so generously to those who clearly had a blast shopping for "wish list" toys, we are proud to have you on our team. Child Life can benefit from donations any time of year to learn more click the link below.

For Christmas the past two years, our staff and attorneys raised money and purchased toys for the HSHS St. Vincent Hospital Children’s Hospital Child Life Program. Everson Legal Assistant/Paralegal Julie OBranovich spearheaded the effort as this is a charity close to her heart.  Her son, Kemper, is a former patient at St. Vincent’s Children’s Hospital. Julie, Kemper and their family received wonderful support from the Child Life Program. (Kemper’s doing great!)

Congratulations to

OUR TALENTED ATTORNEY

Brian Anderson

Attorney Brian Anderson, through his involvement with Wisconsin Defense Counsel’s Amicus Committee,  authored an “Amicus Curiae” brief which was submitted to the Wisconsin Supreme Court on a case involving applicability of Wisconsin’s Recreational Immunity statute. An Amicus brief is submitted by someone not a party to the case, but with an interest in the outcome. In Lang v Lions Club of Cudahy, Wisconsin’s Supreme Court agreed with the position of the defendants (as advocated by Attorney Anderson’s and WDC’s Amicus brief) and reversed the Appellate Court, holding the defendants in the case were entitled to recreational immunity and dismissal of the case was warranted.
