Frequently Asked Questions

Employment Claims

Restaurant workers are more vulnerable than most employees to be the subjects of violations, largely due to the way in which they are paid. For instance, tip credit and tip pooling systems, in addition to other practices, often result in restaurant workers receiving less than the minimum wage for their services.
As a restaurant employee, you deserve to make at least minimum wage; thus, if your employer is engaging in practices that deprive you of this right, you can take legal action to fight for the wages which you should be rightfully paid.

Client Testimonials

In the aftermath of a significant life changing “not at fault” motor vehicle accident, there were many times of darkness, confusion, self doubt and feelings of injustice…. feeling as if I were alone in a dark corner.

Attorney Eric Ryberg and the staff at Habush Habush & Rottier were a bright light in that dark corner. A light to show the correct path out of the darkness. A light to illuminate the pathway to justice, fairness, and common sense in a world where it seems more difficult to find truth and benevolence in all of life’s happenings and experiences.

Truth. Justice. Fairness. Common sense. Genuine. These words are at the core of the structural foundation of the expert legal representation I received from Attorney Eric Ryberg and his team on my behalf. They fought for these things relentlessly…never gave up. They never compromised truth. Never compromised the fight for justice, fairness, or common sense. And because of this, they were able to deliver redemption and justice to the very maximum limit allowed by law.

Never give up. Never settle for anything less than the absolute truth. Never settle for anything but absolute justice. Never settle for legal representation from just any law firm.

Choose Habush Habush & Rottier. Choose Eric Ryberg. Experience the light in the darkness. The light that leads to absolute truth. And uncompromised justice. Light up the darkness.

I worked with Benjamin on a car accident case and he truly went above and beyond. He stayed on top of my case for four years. He was incredible and extremely dedicated. I would recommend him to anyone. Benjamin was also responsive, knowledgeable and kept me informed no matter how small the detail. Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® was great and Benjamin is an outstanding, caring and compassionate attorney.

Habush Habush and Rottier/HHR: The very best law firm around for auto accident cases. Period, end of discussion. Please trust me when I say they have your back from start to finish, no matter the time it takes to complete your case. I knew nothing about this law firm prior to my initial consultation other than the fact my father spoke so highly of them; as he eloquently put it they’ve been ranked as the best of the best in law firm surveys. My father said, this top notch caliber law firm is where other attorneys would go for representation or advice, that’s how good they are. My father was right on this advice, thank you dad!

Takes a fraction of time to change someone’s life forever for worse or for better. In my case it was from an auto accident where I found my hero at HHR who helped me beyond words of gratitude on the long road of healing. Believe me it can often feel like a lonely road to walk but with the right support it makes every step of the journey that mush easier to navigate. From my experience HHR vigorously turned over every stone to make it right. I’m not one to drop names but this is my review so I’m going to give credit where credit is due..to the best attorney I know, Eric Ryberg! Please ask for Eric by name and when you meet tell him Brandon from the review suggested his service, and share a smile because you’re in good company.

I wrote this review from from the bottom of my heart from one auto accident victim to another, focus on your recovery and let HHR focus on the rest. Like the Prairie du Sac Dam regulates water flow, HHR will keep you informed in a timely manor about your case with a steady flow of utmost important information. This way you’re informed without being overwhelmed. The best way others can thank me with gratitude for my ‘fatherly advice’ is to share your experience from HHR and together we will ensure that help gets to those involved in an accident. God bless you and your family and full speed ahead on your recovery.

Two of my children were involved in an automobile accident. With people injured both physically and mentally from the ordeal, I knew I needed to get an attorney to represent my kids who clearly were not at fault in this incident. Being new to Wisconsin, I called my attorney friend in Michigan who is a partner in a very high profile international law firm. He did some research for me to find the best attorney’s in Wisconsin based on their record. He recommended Ben Wagner at Habush. Let me tell you, it was the best phone call I could have made!

Rather than believing the marketing hype and advertising in the greater Milwaukee area about another law firm, I trusted an attorney to find the best attorney based on his record for his clients. In the end, Ben delivered! He negotiated a settlement that exceeded our expectations, which at least minimized some of the hardship created from this accident.

I would also like to add, going beyond the settlement itself, is to speak to Ben’s demeanor. You don’t just get a top attorney with Ben, you get a family man that is approachable and easy to talk with who answers all your questions and respects you throughout the process. He is the utmost professional!
