Our practice is devoted exclusively to Divorce and Family Law matters. As attorneys, we are committed to protecting and vigorously asserting the rights of our clients.
However, we also recognize that personal family issues can often be emotionally challenging for everyone involved, including children. We have chosen to concentrate specifically on this area of the law, believing that our experience in this field allows us to be especially helpful, understanding and supportive at this difficult time.
We will be happy to assist you on any of the issues outlined in this site. Please call our office at (920) 432-5500 to set up an appointment to discuss your case.
Oftentimes, when couples have decided that their marriage is over, they are also able to agree on all the important issues that need to be addressed in order to proceed with a divorce. In addition, couples often seek the most economical way to accomplish that goal.

In recent years, the decision was made to focus exclusively on the area of Family Law, believing that clients benefit most from a law firm where the lawyers concentrate all their efforts on a specific area of practice. Family Law issues are often accompanied by significant stress and turmoil. Realizing this, an effort has been made to provide a friendly and comfortable atmosphere, right down to the cozy fireplace in the foyer. Most of our clients have been referred here, word of mouth, by past clients. That trust is greatly appreciated and valued. Based on years of experience, reputation, and their unique situation, Rich and Cathy Strong are committed to providing excellent legal services for their clients in a professional, yet helpful and supportive manner. In addition, we are a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business with an A+ rating.
Outside of the office, Rich is an avid swimmer, golfer, and cross-country skier. He has completed ten American Birkebeiner ski races in Cable, Wisconsin, and plans to do more. Cathy prefers to cheer him on from the sidelines! In summer, both Rich and Cathy enjoy boating, as well as get-togethers with family and friends.

My search for a reputable attorney to represent me in the pursuit of child custody began with my individual family therapist; she highly recommended the law firm of Strong and Strong.
Rich Strong and his experienced team were very effective in representing me in my custody case. Trustworthy professionals that get results; what more can you ask for in legal representation? I highly recommend them too! - Steve F.

Strong and Strong Attorneys handled a custody and stepparent adoption for us. When we made the initial call we desperately needed them to go to work on our case immediately. That is exactly what they did. Because of their superior knowledge of the law and the legal process we felt quite comfortable during a very difficult time. We were kept well informed throughout the duration of our lengthy case, which concluded with the perfect "story book ending." We could not have been happier. - Michael & Mary L.
