Guiding, caring and protecting reflects the family values that Dennis has lived from early childhood. Born on the plains of North Dakota, he was the oldest grandchild on one side of the family, and one of the youngest on the other. With all four grandparents, plenty of uncles and aunts, plus lots of cousins of all ages and two younger siblings, Dennis understood the love and laughter and closeness that family means. With all of his grandparents farmers, Dennis learned quickly what hard work, being frugal and planning ahead for hard times meant.
As an Elder Law attorney today, Dennis continues many of those values, and seeks to serve clients who need trusted guidance through uncertain times. You might not guess it, but Dennis spent a summer after moving to Wisconsin with his family, learning to be a circus performer. That’s right, juggling, walking the tightrope, spinning plates, and walking on a globe. Turns out he wasn’t very good at any of those things. That’s a good thing, because otherwise he would have joined the circus instead of going to law school!
In addition to specializing in Elder Law and Estate Planning, Dennis has been President of a technology company, with customers across the nation. After stepping down from that, he now focuses his energies exclusively on The Elderlaw Firm. Over the years Dennis has gathered a remarkable legal team, who consistently get rave reviews from clients appreciating personalized attention and helpful customer service.
Dennis has been blessed by his wonderful wife Lynne, and two sons. Dennis and Lynne met in 7th grade, but didn’t date until after high school. That’s because while Dennis has always been smart, he hasn’t always been very observant. Fortunately he came around and married Lynne before finishing college. Dennis and Lynne have two sons now grown and away from home (one married). Now their family includes their latest dogs, Bella and Bentley, who are therapy dogs. Bella and Bentley are loved by all, and Lynne takes them to work at her elementary school, and to visit nursing home residents.
