Joe Troy

Joe Troy is a Shareholder with the Firm. Joe had a long and distinguished career as a Wisconsin Circuit Court Judge and Chief Judge, before returning to private practice with Habush Habush & Rottier in 2007. Joe’s practice is dedicated exclusively to helping people who suffered personal injuries in accidents caused by other people’s carelessness and negligence. He has successfully recovered multi-million-dollar results for his clients in jury trials and settlements, but he has also helped hundreds of people with much smaller claims.

In 2018 he was named Personal Injury Attorney of the Year by Best Lawyers®. In 2004 he was named Wisconsin Trial Judge of the Year by the American Board of Trial Advocates. Joe is Wisconsin’s first attorney to receive these distinctions as both a judge and attorney.  

Joe uses his unique experience as both a judge and attorney to help people who have suffered injuries which disrupt their lives, jeopardize their financial well-being, and impacts the lives of their loved ones.
