Timely, Quality & Cost-Effective Legal Services

axley2015-6Axley is a full-service law firm with two Wisconsin offices (Madison & Waukesha) and more than 50 practicing attorneys. Named the #1 Law Firm by InBusiness Magazine‘s Executive Choice awards for the past three years running, Axley provides exceptional legal services to a wide array of clients from individuals and small business owners to multinational corporations.

The firm was founded in 1885 in Madison, Wisconsin on a simple philosophy of hard work, loyalty and aggressive representation. In that sense, the firm has changed very little in the last century and a quarter.

Six generations later, the business of law is more complex, more sophisticated, more nuanced than ever before – and the Axley team of legal specialists mirrors the challenges of the day. But, the foundational approach to client relationships and tangible results remains strongly intact.

At Axley, we always believed:

  • In looking at every situation from multiple angles, and so we value teamwork
  • That our clients are our partners, and so we sit on the same side of the desk with you
  • That ideas and solutions can be communicated in everyday language, and so we converse with a minimum of legalese
  • In the power of community, and so we stay supportive and involved in the issues and causes that affect us all

“Advocacy” is a word often overused in the legal environment, but here at Axley law firm, it’s a word that still carries weight in our client relationships. Any law firm can stand at your side, but it takes an aggressive, responsive, creative approach to be a true advocate, to design uncommon solutions to common issues and to get the results our clients need.

Our dedication to exceeding client expectations and furthering innovation in the legal field is evident in a variety of unique alternative fee arrangements. We also maintain a complimentary client portal – a virtual storage space where clients can access documents 24/7. In addition, we make it a priority to respond to all emails we receive within a 24-business-hour time frame.
