Brian Laule, Partner at the River Falls-based law firm, Bye, Goff & Rohde won the 2017 Outstanding Young Trial Lawyer Award presented by the Wisconsin Association for Justice (WAJ).
Brian’s practice is exclusively devoted to handling cases on behalf of injured people, and he takes great pride in working with his clients on a personal level and crafting the right strategy for their unique situations. “Our firm does 100% plaintiffs’ personal injury, and Brian is a zealous advocate for his clients. He is fearless in the courtroom and has a presence far beyond his years,” said Steve Goff, Managing Partner at Bye Goff & Rohde.
Brian has tried more than 50 cases to verdict since 2010 and has been named a Rising Star by Wisconsin Super Lawyers every year since 2014. Brian earned his law degree cum laude from the University of Minnesota, where he was an editor of the Minnesota Law Review and a recipient of the Public Service Award for legal work in the community. He lives in Prescott, Wisconsin, with his wife Sarah, and three boys.
This award recognizes a trial lawyer who has shown exceptional dedication to goals set forth by the WAJ, and has upheld them in various ways, including handling a case involving a significant change in the law or a precedent-setting suit, by their support of WAJ through work in the WAJ organization, pro-bono or other volunteerism that benefited injured consumers, or efforts designed to improve and preserve the American civil justice system.
