Sometimes lawyers get a bad rap, but that’s never been the case with Hupy &Abraham, SC. Because of their conscientious commitment to the community they serve, Hupy &Abraham Law Offices have earned a reputation in the Milwaukee community for being innovative, giving and community-minded.
It’s not often that we hear of a personal injury law firm sponsoring initiatives such as PEARLS for Teen Girls, breast cancer fundraisers or being the signature sponsor of the Milwaukee Center for Leadership Development Minority Achievers Awards Dinner.
But, these are just a few of the programs and events that Hupy &Abraham have sponsored. And, it doesn’t include initiatives such as donating Thanksgiving meals to more than 100 families, raising money to fight domestic violence or sponsoring scholarships for theWillie D. Davis Scholarship Fund.
Hupy & Abraham has a long and colorful history in the Milwaukee community, and it proudly traces its roots back to Attorney Lloyd Barbee, who started the Milwaukee Public School Integration lawsuit. Apparently, social consciousness and determination to make a difference in the community they serve is at the core of this law firm’s commitment to Milwaukee’s quality of life and its success.
Attorney Michael F. Hupy, a graduate of Marquette University Law School, has practiced personal injury law in the community for more than 40 years. He is a Certified Civil Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, has the highest rating inMartindale-Hubbell and is included in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, is Past President of theWisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, a member of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, a former member of the Wisconsin Academy of Trial Lawyers Board of Directors, a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, selected for inclusion in the first list of Super Lawyers inWisconsin, licensed inWisconsin, in Illinois and an author and lecturer in trial practice.
Attorney Hupy has taken the lead role in giving back to the community, supporting causes fromAmerica’s Second Harvest, to scholarship programs, to child safety fingerprint programs. In December 2008, Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle presented Attorney Hupy with a Certificate of Commendation for his years of leadership in making “The community a better place to live.” This is just one of numerous awards Attorney Hupy has received for his tireless commitment to the community.
Attorney Jason F. Abraham, also a graduate of Marquette University Law School, joined Hupy and Abraham, S.C., in 1993 and progressed to the position of shareholder at the firm in 1999.
He is a Certified Civil Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, a member of the State Bar of Wisconsin, the American Bar Association, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, and theMulti-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
Because of their long-standing commitment to community involvement and giving back, Hupy & Abraham have managed to break some of the unflattering stereotypes sometimes perceived of attorneys.
Their actions speak louder than words ever could and, if those actions could speak, they would clearly say, “We care. We are committed to this community and we will put our money where our heart is to help make Milwaukee a better community!”
Thank you Hupy & Abraham for being a good neighbor, for makingMilwaukee a better place to live, work and raise families, and for your unprecedented corporate citizenry!
