Took great care of me during the divorce

Trisha really cares, and took great care of me during the divorce. She's not only a great attorney, but she is also a warm and caring person. My divorce was a heart wrenching life experience and I needed someone that would consider my family and our circumstances and who'd take care of us. We weren't disappointed. Trisha was all that and more.

She helped me think and reason through what I needed

I went through a very difficult and stressful divorce. Trisha represented me and she was helpful, knowledgeable, and compassionate. She helped me think and reason through what I needed, and how to deal with my difficult situation clearly. She was firm in negotiation, but not antagonistic and got results.

I really feel like I know what's expected. I'm in contempt of court for keeping my child. I went to mediation with a lot of questions and didn't hear from her. So having to go and face my Ex was horrible, needless to say it didn't go welll and I needed a sheriff escort to my car on Friday. With all this said I do think she is very nice I just don't feel secure about my court date on May 8th.

Attorney Festerling was diligent in resolving my case as quickly as possible against apposing counsel who was non-responsive, illusive and a bit childish.

Trisha, has been supportive and understanding in my divorce, but I think the support team that works with her could use some improvement.

Slow and Delayed Communication

The response from atty Festerling has been very slow and delayed. Lately, it's typically days before I hear a response and it's usually with me sending a follow up message

I sat down and interviewed Trisha, it was evident she has a great deal of legal knowledge. She discussed her prior experience and displayed her skills to be direct without being harsh or combative.

About Trisha Festerling

Sitting at her desk in fourth grade, Trisha Festerling patiently listened to her guidance counselor talk about various professions. Every week, she would hear about different jobs, but nothing gripped her. Then one day, the counselor talked about being a lawyer. Trisha listened to the ways that lawyers defend and help other people. From that moment on, she was on a mission to pursue law.

In a rural area with small schools, that was easier said than done. But she kept her head down, driven by her desire to be of service to others. Now, she's making her dream a reality as a successful member of the team at Sterling Law Offices.

Trisha's career started in corporate law, but it lacked the one-on-one time that she was passionate about. Slowly but surely, her desire to interact with her clients directly gravitated her towards Family Law.

Working a family law case is where she feels she can really help people through a difficult period in their lives. Divorce and child custody are huge life events that impact people in deeply emotional and long-lasting ways.

Trisha doesn't just defend her clients but empowers them. She helps her clients maintain a strong family while moving constantly forward, even at the worst of times. A divorce case lasts only a short while, and it's important that they're prepared to face their new life at the end of it.

Trisha graduated with honors and Magna Cum Laude from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2001 before earning her law (J.D.) degree from Regent University Law School in 2007.

It was while earning her law degree that Trisha had her first child, and it changed her life forever. It made her understand the importance of family, with children at their center. It's a feeling she remembers when working a case.

When Trisha isn't at work, she enjoys spending time with her three children and appreciating nature. She particularly loves the mountains, and coincidentally met her husband while training to summit a 14,000-foot mountain in Colorado. When she sees a big, majestic mountain in the distance, it still gives her goosebumps.

When she's not hiking or skipping rocks on the beach, you might find Trisha around Milwaukee going to the zoo with her family or at the Milwaukee Public Museum.
