Kevin Lonergan is recognized within the legal community for handling complex litigation matters for clients with catastrophic injuries and for clients who have lost loved ones. Although most cases settle, he has a reputation for trying cases and has had a high percentage of cases where the ultimate jury verdicts far exceeded the insurance companies’ pre-trial offers of settlement. Kevin has handled many million and multi-million dollar cases.
Kevin has been honored to have been recognized as one of the state’s top lawyers by a number of organizations. Kevin was named as one of the top 10 lawyers in the state of Wisconsin in the state-wide magazine Super Lawyers list. He had previously been named as one of the top 50 lawyers for several years, and he is only one of a few lawyers in the state who have been named to the Super Lawyers list (top 5% of all attorneys in the state) each and every year that the Super Lawyers have been recognized. He had the distinct privilege of being named Wisconsin’s “Trial Lawyer of the Year” by the Wisconsin Association for Justice in December 2014. As of the time of Kevin’s nomination and selection, only 14 other lawyers had received the same honor in the organization’s almost seventy-year history.
In addition to being named Wisconsin’s Trial Lawyer of the Year, Kevin is rated 10 out of 10 by AVVO, he has previously been named the top personal injury and products liability lawyer in the Fox Cities area, and he has also been rated one of the top trial lawyers nationally. He is a board-certified civil trial specialist accredited by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and has also received the highest possible national ratings for legal ability and ethics by an international rating service. Kevin has been named a “Fellow” of the Wisconsin Law Foundation, an honor bestowed on only 2-1/2% of all practicing lawyers.
