Who We Are, What We Do, and How We Can Help

Our practice is about helping people in the Milwaukee-Waukesha area, in southeast Wisconsin and statewide with legal matters ranging from traffic violations and general criminal defense to real estate transactions and divorce. If you have legal concerns involving any of these issues, or any of our firm’s other practice areas — we’d be happy to help.

Call us contact us online to schedule an initial consultation today.

An *AV-Rated law firm
Our firm is comprised of three very experienced and dedicated attorneys — Robert Courtney, David Molter and Lori Schultz. Mr. Courtney and Mr. Molter have each been practicing law in the state of Wisconsin for more than 25 years, and Ms. Schultz for nearly 20. Together, their demonstrated abilities, criminal and civil litigation skills, knowledge and high ethical standards have earned this firm an AV rating.

What is an AV rating and how exactly do you “earn” one? Simply put, an AV rating is the highest rating a lawyer or law firm can receive. It can only be earned through a confidential, peer-review rating process that considers both legal ability and ethical standards. In other words, it’s what other attorneys and judges think about us.

Here for You in Your Time of Need
Experience, ability and virtually every other professional asset that an attorney can bring to the table matter very little to clients who can’t promptly reach the attorney or get their phone calls returned, or who are left feeling “in the dark” the vast majority of the time.

At Courtney & Molter, we haven’t forgotten that the practice of law is about helping people understand the legal process, their rights, and their options. We take the time to do that. As a result, clients feel more at ease throughout the process and are better able to make good legal decisions as well.

Dear Mr. Molter,

I want to sincerely thank you for helping with my traffic case. I am very pleased. You have an excellent staff.

Dave Molter,

I just wanted to express my gratitude for your help. Thanks to you my record is still solid and my insurance very low. Thanks again.

Dear David Molter:

I wish to thank you for your efforts on my behalf to have a favorable outcome for my traffic violation. I appreciate your prompt and courteous attention to my inquiries and also the support that you gave me during the resolution of the violation. Thank you once again.

To all in your firm,

I appreciate very much all the dedication and time you took on my divorce. I am very impressed with the way you handled all the details. I am very grateful to you and to everyone in your firm who took part. I will highly recommend you. Thank you again.

Dear Mr. Molter,

I just wanted to send you my sincere thanks for helping me with this whole process. By having your help and support, my life has finally gone back to being somewhat normal. I no longer have a huge weight on my chest every morning wondering “what is going to happen today” and it is the best feeling I have had for a while. I don’t know what I would have done without your help and I really cannot express the gratefulness that I have for your time and efforts that you have given me. This has most definitely been an eye opening and life changing experience for me. All in all I really can’t express how thankful and happy I am that you helped me through this terrible mess and pulled me back on my feet and gave me a second chance. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Dear David,

Thanks so much for the great job settling my case. I really appreciate it.

Dear David Molter,

I was very impressed with how you and your office treated me at all times. Much more than I expected. I will definitely keep you in mind for future legal affairs.

Dear Mr. Molter,

I wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank you for representing me in court. It is such a relief to have this matter solved with such a successful outcome. You were of great assistance to me and I will keep you in mind for a referral to others in need. Thank you again!
