In addition to legal advice, at Davis & Kuelthau we believe our role in helping clients avoid legal issues before they begin is just as important as navigating them through the issues once they’ve started.

In addition to seminars, newsletters, and alerts we offer resources to our clients through onsite training programs for Human Resources professionals, Wage and Benefits data for school districts in Northeast Wisconsin, and more.
