Robert R. Gagan

Robert R. Gagan’s practice centers on commercial and business litigation, employment disputes, estate planning and municipal and real estate law.  He was recognized as one of the Best Lawyers in America® in both 2018 and 2019 for his work in the area of municipal law.
Bob is committed to the practice of law and has an extensive record of activism and volunteer work at both the state and local levels.  He co-founded the Brown County Free Legal Clinic and is a past President of the State Bar of Wisconsin.  Additional activities include current membership on the District 14 Investigative Committee appointed by the Wisconsin Supreme Court and Board Membership for Casa Alba Melanie, the Hispanic Resource Center in Green Bay.

I’m here to provide level-headed practical advice that will help clients solve their legal concerns. I work hard to anticipate what my client might ask for or need and handle issues before they arise. I enjoy being an attorney because it gives me the opportunity to serve others, both in a professional capacity and also through volunteer service.
