Client Testimonials

I highly recommend the team at Habush, Habush and Rottier — and especially Chris Duesing at their Lake Geneva office. Chris did a great job representing me in settling a complicated personal injury case that involved two insurance companies, Medicare, and other parties. The case was handled in a professional manner, and the staff never came across as high-pressure ambulance chasers. They also did a great job communicating with me by phone and email so I always knew where my case stood.

Christopher Duesing is an excellent attorney with Habush Habush and Rottier that displayed caring and compassion towards me and my situation. He was very informative, returned calls in a timely manner, and was very up-front with me about my injury case and what the outcome could be. He gathered all the information concerning the case and presented it to the insurance company to come up with a settlement. He listened to my concerns and understood. He was able to fulfill his obligation in closing my case to the best of his ability, which I was satisfied with. His staff was terrific also. I would recommend him to anyone!
