Patrick Fiedler’s diverse legal career includes service as the United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, 18 years as a Dane County Circuit Judge, and President of the State Bar of Wisconsin. As a lawyer, he has tried over 60 jury trials, and as a judge he has presided over more than 150 juries. Since returning to the private practice of law in late 2011, he has served as a mediator and arbitrator in over 200 different cases. Additionally, he has represented numerous individuals in both civil and criminal cases as a trial lawyer. Patrick also has served as an independent investigator for both public entities and private organizations. As a mediator, Patrick’s practice is to: “Prepare, listen and then evaluate.” At trial, his practice is to: “Focus on the issues from a jury’s perspective. Then present your case accordingly.”

To date, Patrick has mediated or arbitrated cases involving § 1983 claims, police misconduct, personal injury, products liability, attorney malpractice, accounting malpractice, errors and omissions insurance, various issues relating to insurance coverage, construction disputes, breakups of law firms and accounting firms, attorney theft, condemnation (eminent domain), trust and estate disputes, fraudulent sales, vehicle warranties, home warranties, open records law, theft of funds, employment, employee theft, wage and salary, business disputes, loan disputes, land contracts, discrimination, nuisance, defamation, property development, land disputes, home remediation,  contracts (real estate and other contracts), commercial foreclosures, air pollution, and condominium disputes.
