President’s Message: WDC Offers Concrete Benefits and Opportunities for All Lawyers

As I begin my term as Wisconsin Defense Counsel President I want to share why I spend so much time and effort supporting the organization. I support WDC because it benefits me personally and professionally, and I firmly believe that membership in WDC has been worth every moment I have spent at conferences and meetings.
