Our History

In 1978, Richard Rechlicz, seeing an opportunity to establish a law practice, located in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, on the corner of Main and Water. Rick quickly established an emphasis on real estate, corporate and probate law but attracted a number of cases involving litigation. As a result, William Ladewig agreed to do his litigation work for him out of his downtown practice. It was quickly apparent to both that there was a need for their services in the area and that they functioned well together.

In 1980, Bill Ladewig joined Rick Rechlicz full time in Menomonee Falls, although they maintained an office on Oklahoma Avenue for three years to provide service to Milwaukee clients previously represented.
