Kowalski Family law is clearly the best family law firm in southern wisconsin. My case was a mess and had beeen mishandled by a previous lawyer. My ex had taken me to mediation and was trying to obtain a schedule that would reduce my time with my girls not for any other reason than that she was jelous of the amount of free time i had to spend with them. The GAL was on my exes side for reasons unknown. Upon hiring Kowalski family law the GAL and my exes lawyers outlook changed immediately and we were able to reach a custody agreement almosty exactly like had taken place in the past and I am now spending the maximum amount of time I am able to raising my girls. I cannot thank David, Emily and the rest of the firm enough, I know had I not hired them it would not be the case. Chris 1/3/17
“I was extremely satisfied with my experience with David and his associates. I had a complicated divorce involving custody and an ex that owned his own business. We were met with several surprises and an opposing counsel that was difficult to deal with at times. I always felt that David gave me sound advice and made sure that I understood all of my options. When issues arose he was always quick to respond and I felt that I was in the loop with all communications and documents received. He is highly professional and a great ally to have on your side during what is undoubtedly a difficult time in your life. I feel fully prepared to enter the next phase of my life and know that if the need arose David would be there to help me through any legal issues that would need to be handled.” Lindsay 1/3/17
Exceptional service — “Before starting my case, I consulted with David over the phone. He was very prompt, professional and yet easy to talk to. I choses to hire David because of his demeanor and liked that he got straight down to the facts, which to fast forward would win my case to end a guardianship that was in place. David and his law office associates were all extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and confident in all areas. I had daily contact with Kowalski Family Law which kept me informed about any changes or progress made with in my case. I have absolutely no complaints and would highly recommend the services provided by Kowalski Family Law. Outstanding.” 11/18/16
“I recently hired David Kowalski for my divorce lawyer because he was highly recommended to me by several lawyers. I will now pay it forward and highly recommend him to others. I was extremely pleased with his caring expertise at all times. He clearly has great knowledge of the legal system and was able to explain the issues to me in a way for me to understand. I always felt my position was heard. David Kowalski also has an exceptional team that works with him in his office. They were amazing with all interactions and delightful to work with. I am truly thankful I hired David Kowalski.” Vicki 10/16/16
Highly recommended — “I hired David for a divorce case. He and his team did a great job helping me through the process. They were professional, timely, and responsive. He uses an online service for managing appointments, transferring documents, and billing which made everything very convenient. I highly recommend David and his firm.” Eric 9/18/16
David Kowalski helped me so much — “I had what I believe to be a difficult case and Attorney Kowalski’s understanding of my history, the case and the state statutes led to a big win in court! I am very grateful to Attorney Kowalski and his legal team for their time, effort and organization.” 8/29/16
“David helped us with the current Guardianship we have of our disabled grandson since birth and his birth mother now wants to have custodity back and revoke the guardianship in place. We are his grandparents and have had this child all his life. He was able to help us win the case and the revoke was dismissed and we are currently working on slowly renighting the mother and child providing she can do what the court has ordered. We do plan on having David help us go for grandparents visitation if the birth mother does recieve this child back due to that is the only way we will be able to continue to be part of his life. He was AMAZING and i have referred him to a family already and his law firm made us feel like family as well. H e is a man that truly cares about his cases and its not just a paycheck and helped us get through some difficult times by the support he offered. ” Kari and Phil 5/18/16
Very pleased — “David assisted me with a child support case and I was very pleased with his work. He has a calm demeanor, is smart, knowledgeable about the law, and was willing to push for the things that I felt were important. He’s reasonable and respectful. David and his staff are attentive and I really liked being able to access my information online. I’ve used three attorneys over the years for an unfortunately conflictual divorce, but he is the only one that I would use again.” 4/24/16
David did the impossible for me — “I had everything stacked against me when I tried to move out of state with my son: a past of drug use, an ex who had our son 3 nights every week and was heavily involved, and a recommendation from the court study and GAL that had started out being that I should have supervised visits only with my son (they changed that part later on but they still fought for my ex, and against me). Not to mention that it is very hard to move a child out of state to begin with, without any of that other stuff. But David did it, beating two lawyers and a recommendation that is weighted heavily by the judge (I read that 90% of the time, judges will favor the recommendation). David was always honest with me, and made no promises. But he prepped me well, and based his strategy on how things were going in court, fully prepared but only using what he needed to, as he needed to. His judgment was right on. He was very calm, and focused, and knowledgeable. Furthermore, even in the toughest moments, his calm kept me calm too. I could not have better things to say of David, nor would I have wanted anyone else to be the one fighting for me. He truly beat the odds, and as I quite cheesily told him yesterday, he is my hero. He is the reason my son and I will have better lives now. I would trust him with any case, in any situation. Basically, I trusted him with my life, and he made it better. I will always be grateful.” 3/3/16
Straightforward and fair — “I already have recommended David to several people. His representation was excellent. He never was an ear tickler, telling me what I wanted to hear to prolong the case. When I asked a question he would tell me exactly what to expect and what the system would or would not approve.
He and his staff had great timely communication.” Laura 2/18/16
“David was an excellent lawyer throughout my divorce! He provided me the advice and service I needed throughout my divorce to an aggressive military member. He ensured I was safe and knew what my rights were.” 1/29/16

A sharp attorney who will fight and have your back — “I had a difficult case involving international law and child custody. Attorney David Kowalski really did his homework! He worked through all the intricate details between Wisconsin and European divorce and custody laws to grant me my rights. When things got stressful and over whelming for me, he kept cool and talked me through all the details. He made me feel safe and confident. He explained exactly how court hearings would go. After understanding my views he did much of the talking and said things in a strong, eloquent, confident, very knowledgeable way. He fought hard for my best interests. He always kept me informed and was readily available to talk when ever I needed him. I could tell that he really cared about my case and wanted the best for me. This was a difficult situation for both parties, and he understood that. I trusted David Kowalski, he truly had my back, I was happy with the results and I would highly recommend him. He will always be my number one attorney of choice!” 9/8/15
Outstanding service — “Mr. Kowalski is easily the best attorney I have had the pleasure of working with. His attention to detail and professionalism easily sets him above his peers, not only in Baraboo, but Wisconsin as a whole. If you were to hire him, he will be gracious and understanding of your situation, and work very hard to achieve the best outcome. His staff is on the same level. I strongly encourage hiring The Kowalski team, especially in family law matters.” Tiffany 8/12/15
Great representation — “Mr. Kowalski is exactly what I needed during my divorce. I started with a female lawyer who was more into mud slinging and getting into arguments. When I didn’t like the results of the temporary hearing someone mentioned finding a new attorney. I went online and found Mr. Kowalski. I liked what I read about him and figured I’d give it a try. I am beyond happy with his representation and how he handles everything. I loved how he tried hard to make sure the process was smooth and less expensive than needed. At the same time he is willing to do whatever it takes to get what’s fair. He is very level headed and will help you see what is the best course of action. He listens to what your needs are but will also tell you when something isn’t worth pursuing. My divorce ended up being very long and messy but in the end I received what was fair and best for our child. Soon after my divorce I used him when I filed a restraining order and having him there made all the difference. I recommend him to anyone who is in need of family services, and have had two people hire him. If you are looking for great representation definitely go with Mr. Kowalski. ” Lilianne 8/11/15
Needed a closer — “I had been working with a lawyer from a different firm throughout most of my two year divorce case who wasn’t very experienced or responsive to my calls and emails. When I ran into some major setbacks trying to sell my marital home, my lawyer just wasn’t getting things done. I called David out of a recommendation from a friend and he made the transition super smooth for me. He got me into a hearing immediately to allow me to finish the sale and scheduled my final hearings with the judge to finish my divorce; something my previous lawyer had told me wasn’t possible yet. He handled things much more efficiently and effectively and was extremely responsive to the myriad of questions I still had about my case. I would always receive a call or email from David the same day. He was even available several times during the holiday weekend before my final hearing to make sure we were on the same page. I feel like David was able to get me to my final hearing sooner and with a better outcome for me compared to the lawyer I was working with previously. He’s extremely knowledgeable and personable and I really enjoyed working with him.” Liz 7/20/15

“I highly recommend Mr. Kowalski. Not only did he helped me prevail in my case, He kept me informed in every way, whether it be the court process, billing, correspondence etc. He was sensitive to my financial limitations during the entire process informing me of my options that helped keep my costs down.. Mr. Kowalski is very professional and personable. He helped keep me grounded during this very emotional time.” Tonja 2/11/15
Very helpful and knowledgeable — “David was so helpful to my husband and I during a custody battle with my daughter’s father that sprung out of nowhere. I needed a good lawyer, fast. We were so lucky to have found David when we did. His prompt responsiveness, friendly attitude, reasonable price, and knowledge of the facts took such a huge weight off of my shoulders. He will be our family lawyer for any issues that may arise in the future.” Jordan 2/10/15
There are good ones out there — “I have been working with Mr. Kowalski for the past month. Such a sigh of relief to work with someone that knows what he is doing and I feel totally confident with him being straight forward and making the most of my money. I too had a bad experience with another attorney in the past that left me broke before we even got started and wasted precious time. Mr. Kowalski has restored my faith in being able to trust that he is working for the best possible outcome.” 9/28/14
“Attorney David Kowalski was helpful and professional; he was able to provide legal counsel and attend court while I lived in another state. I greatly appreciated that I did not have to appear in court in person. He kept me informed at all times which greatly alleviated my biggest fears and worries. He was honest about possible outcomes and about the whole process. I felt that he listened to my concerns and then was able to provide me with the information to address those concerns.” Catherine 9/16/14
Great family law attorney — “David is a very aggressive lawyer that helped me get additional placement of my child as well as child support with the additional placement.

Wonderful help — “David has been a wonderful lawyer to work with during my divorce. Aside from the more obvious positive qualities of being knowledgeable and trustworthy, David provided so much more during the process. He was responsive to any emails and phone calls, returning them in reasonable amounts of time. The best quality David possesses is his ability to understand concerns, cut through the emotion, and provide sound legal advice that best suited myself and my children. He has a way of discerning what is most important and focusing on accomplishing those tasks.” 8/1/14
Trustworthy and knowledgeable — “David helped me complete a difficult divorce involving child placement. Before I was referred to David I worked with a different attorney, making me much more aware of how wonderful an attorney David is!
Any concern I had was addressed promptly and with careful consideration. David worked to resolve my divorce as quickly as possible while keeping my son’s and my own best interest at the forefront. I trusted David’s advice and expertise and was always glad to have followed it.
David is an excellent lawyer and I would recommend him in good faith to anyone.” Anna 4/28/14
Professional and trustworthy — “Attorney Kowalski handled my divorce this past year. He was very professional, honest and easy to work with. We were able to come to a mutually agreed upon marital settlement agreement that was fair to me, and most importantly in the best interest of my children.
I had all questions answered immediately and was always kept up to date on everything I needed to know. Attorney Kowalski was always on top of things, keeping them moving forward even when the other side was not responding.
I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs representation in a family case!” Lindsey 1/22/14

I would recommend David to my friends. Mark 11/4/13
A client for life — “I tried treading water through my divorce process for almost a year before I called on Dave to represent me. I could have saved myself a lot of time and stress if I had made that phone call sooner. Dave worked to get the maximum legal protection for my son in regards to a custody/placement arrangement. I appreciate Dave’s outright regard for the well-being of me and my son.” K.W. 10/18/13
Highly recommended –“David represented me off and on for several years during my divorce and child custody/placement hearings. He was very knowledgeable of family law and made me well aware of my options throughout these emotionally challenging times. He was an excellent advocate for both myself and my daughter. ” Allison.
