Mark Schroeder received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Luther College in 1980, and his law degree from Marquette University in 1983. He has been an attorney with Consigny Law Firm, S.C. since 1987. A member of the State Bar of Wisconsin, the Rock County Bar Association, and a past member of the Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Association of Justice, Mr. Schroeder is also a past member of the State Bar of Wisconsin Law-Related Education Committee. Mr. Schroeder believes that being an attorney means being a counselor and an advocate for his clients. An attorney must determine the nature and extent of the client’s problems, review with the client the courses of action that can be taken, and design a response best suited to the client’s needs. As an advocate, an attorney must make full use of his or her abilities to pursue the course of action that will obtain the best possible result for the client.
