About Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C.

Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C. is a full-service law firm founded in 1943. Much has changed since then, but, throughout, there remains a notable constant: WHD's commitment to the success of each client.

In today’s fast-paced world where time means money, experience alone is not enough. WHD’s experience, combined with its approach to providing legal services, supports its goal of client success.

WHD’s Experience

Just as experience is important in other types of business, legal experience is an essential component in our ability to deliver effective and efficient services. With more than 150 professionals, WHD offers clients the legal experience necessary to provide the technical, yet practical, advice that every client deserves.

We also recognize that legal experience alone is not enough to effectively and efficiently represent clients given today’s social and business conditions. For that reason, many of our attorneys have gone beyond the study of law and have earned graduate degrees in a wide variety of fields including engineering, medicine, business, technology, tax, political science and dispute resolution.

In addition to years of legal experience and the diversity of educational pursuits, we understand that real-world experience is often a valuable tool in identifying and implementing practical solutions for clients. Prior to practicing law, many WHD attorneys worked in a variety of industries including technology, insurance, government, engineering, medicine, human relations, education, telecommunications, finance, construction and non-profit organizations. These extensive and diverse skills and perspectives allow us to create practical business solutions for virtually any legal challenge.

WHD’s Approach

Our approach includes a thorough understanding of each client’s operations, objectives and expectations together with an uncompromised commitment to service.

At WHD, we assemble the appropriate team of expertise and experience to meet the client’s individual needs. Our approach is dedicated not only to understanding the client’s needs, but also to serving those needs promptly and appropriately. As part of this commitment, WHD’s attorneys understand the importance of accessibility and, through multiple avenues of communication, they remain available 24/7 to help support the ultimate commitment of the firm—the success of our clients.

Appropriately serving and servicing our clients requires a team effort. Through technology, WHD can easily tap the experiences and resources found in each of our offices. In addition, the firm remains staffed in a way that ensures that the client’s needs remain paramount. WHD’s administration and support staff routinely collaborate with its attorneys to ensure that the focus of the entire firm remains where it belongs—on the client.

Our Business Structure

Our organizational structure, which includes a chief executive and board of directors, mirrors that of our clients. This allows us to understand the issues and concerns they face in their business environments.
