About Dan Exner

From the very beginning of his career, Attorney Dan Exner has been passionate about family law and its related areas. This is why he chose to focus on it exclusively as part of the Sterling Law Offices team. For him, being a lawyer isn’t only his livelihood but a chance to help members of his community in their time of need.

Any family law action, be it divorce or child custody or adoption is potentially one of the most stressful and draining periods of a person’s life. It’s Dan’s belief that having a seasoned, objective voice to help share the burden of someone’s emotional turmoil can make all the difference both for the client and in the courtroom.

No two divorce, child custody or adoption cases are ever the same. Each case presents a unique set of obstacles and challenges that can’t be tackled using a “one size fits all” approach. Yet, this is exactly what many lawyers attempt to do and the ones who are hurt are families and individuals going through these hard times. As a result, Dan believes focused and individualized attention on a case is the best way to achieve positive results. This means listening to the needs of each client and customizing the approach to the case accordingly on a person-by-person basis.

Before joining the Sterling Law Offices team, Dan worked as a domestic litigator with the national law firm Cordell & Cordell in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Since 2011, he has worked with well over 220 clients in divorce, child custody and other family law cases. His experience and dedication to helping others earned him a Rising Star Award, which was awarded by his peers for excellence in his field in 2014.

Graduating with a B.A. degree in Political Science and Theatre & Drama from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2008, Dan then moved to law, earning a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Marquette University School of Law in 2011.
