Meet Bill Rettko
Licensed in 1989, I have been practicing law for over 27 years. After serving as an associate and partner at two local Milwaukee firms for over 11 years, I established Rettko Law Offices, S.C., in 2001. During the course of my legal career, I have represented employees and employers who are seeking long-term solutions for complex employment issues.
At my Brookfield office, I draw clients from Milwaukee metro area and throughout the state of Wisconsin. In addition to my extensive legal experience, I use knowledge gained from years spent working in the industries of banking and finance and insurance. Having held positions in these fields, I am familiar with the complicated maze of workplace policies and procedures that regulate worker employment and termination.
My success in litigating on my clients’ behalf is the reason that I have been selected for inclusion in:
- Super Lawyers
- American Institute of Trial Lawyers – Litigator of the Year
- Continental Who’s Who – America’s Top 100 Attorneys
- Top 100 Attorneys of North America
- 10 Best Attorneys by the American Institute of Legal Counsel
- Elite Lawyers of America
- Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum
As a result of my diligent advocacy, I obtained a jury verdict exceeding $4 million for Milwaukee Police Lieutenants and $1.5 million for Town of Beloit employees.
Offering Comprehensive Legal Services In Employment And Labor Law
In addition to my counsel on municipal police matters, I serve my clients in the following capacities:
- Civil rights litigation
- Constitutional issues
- Employment law
- Labor law
- Contract negotiations
- Representation during grievance procedures
Because I consider my service a vocation, I am dedicated to finding the most equitable solution for an employment dispute. I recognize that the choice to engage in a legal conflict with an employer or an employee is not one that is rushed nor is it for the timid.
Many of my clients grapple with the decision to file a claim against an individual or company they’ve respected for years. They recognize that the path to receiving justice is not a smooth one. Once they commit to their claim, they know that I will endeavor to find a satisfactory resolution. My record of success is a testament to my ability to achieve justice for my clients.
