About Trisha Festerling
Trisha’s passion for law sparked in middle school, and she never let go of that drive to pursue a career in the law. She has a servant’s heart, and she found being a lawyer allows her to have a direct access to help people.
Prior to joining Sterling Law Offices, Attorney Festerling worked as a domestic litigator out of Milwaukee, WI for the national law firm Cordell & Cordell. In 2013 Trisha was nominated by her peers as a Rising Star and was later the winner of the 2013 Rising Star Award from Super Lawyers. Only 5% of attorneys, nationally, win this award.
Trisha has always been competitive and showed this off in college. At UWM, she competed as part of the Division 1 track team for two years (before leaving the US to study abroad).
Trisha earned a B.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2001, graduating with academic honors and Magna Cum Laude. She later earned her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Regent University School of Law in 2007.
During law school she competed in the Moot Court Board and participated in the 2006 National Constitution Moot Court Competition, where she was earned 6th place. She was also part of the James Kent American Inns of Court.
When Trisha is outside of the workplace, she is with family. She spends time reading, hiking, and skipping rocks on the beach. She enjoys going to the zoo with family as well as the Milwaukee Public Museum.
Trisha says, “As a lawyer, I am often a buffer between pain and reasonableness. When I have the opportunity to alleviate someone’s worries, to relieve the stress in life by explaining the basics of the law, I have done what I have been called to do. The result has been personal satisfaction that I am not sure could have been achieved doing anything else.”
