Andrew W. R. Nielsen

Attorney brookfield

Wisconsin native Andrew Nielsen focuses on Employment law and commercial transactions. He chose a career in law based on his interest in, as he puts it, helping people “avoid the headaches” and “the mess and expense of litigation” that often come with lack of planning and preparation. Thanks to his experience leading WFJ’s expansion into on-demand legal advice for employers, he has become an expert in all things Employment law.

Outside of WFJ, Andrew keeps busy raising two sons. Also, as a member of the Milwaukee French Immersion Foundation Board, he directs the placement of interns from French-speaking countries who come to the United States to teach at Milwaukee French Immersion School and the Milwaukee School of Languages. As you might have guessed, Andrew can speak a little French.
