He took the time to build trust and make sure I was also in the loop and knew what was going on and what the next steps would be.

I was initially hesitant to move forward with a hired attorney for an unfortunate bicycle accident. From the initial meeting until our final settlement, Ed and his entire team did a phenomenal job every step along the way. Ed has a great gift of being able to deliver complicated laws and processes in the most detailed or simplistic manner you choose. He was never “pushy” towards us choosing a particular route; he got us the facts we needed to make a very educated decision that ultimately I feel was a swift and acceptable result. Another quality Ed has is to make sure your significant other is also comfortable throughout the process. This was very important to me because these are critical decision-making moments in a couple’s life and he always made a point to ask if my wife was happy with the communication, results, and service. I would HIGHLY recommend Ed as an attorney for anyone interested in having honest and steadfast communication and service. JOB WELL DONE!

Ed Vopal was very professional and did a great job representing me. He kept me well-informed throughout the whole process. He was very respectful and always answered my questions. I had complete trust in the work he did for my case. His assistant Julie Desotell was also very professional and helpful. I am very satisfied and would highly recommend them.

I retained the Habush Green Bay firm (Attorney Ed Vopal specifically) to help me regarding a car accident. I was very impressed with how Attorney Vopal and the entire Habush staff handled my case. It was handled expeditiously and professionally. I was definitely in good hands and never once second-guessed my decision regarding the firm/counsel that I had retained. I will be recommending not only the Habush firm in general but specifically the Green Bay branch to friends and family in need of the plaintiff’s counsel in the future.
