Lori S. Kornblum

I served as a Judge on the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, and am an attorney with more than four decades of experience.   After leaving the Wisconsin Court of Appeals in August 2022, I resumed my law and mediation practice.  I have experience in many areas of law, teaching at both Marquette University Law School and Northeastern University Law School, as well as teaching in the Paralegal department at Milwaukee Area Technical College.  My areas of knowledge are broad and deep, from corporate law and general civil law, to child abuse.  I have been appointed as a Guardian ad Litem in more than 400 cases involving frail and disabled adults, and in numerous family cases involving contentious disputes.

As background, I teach at two law schools, specializing in Child Abuse and in Negotiation and Advocacy.  I also teach in a paralegal program at Milwaukee Area Technical College.   In addition, I have an active law and mediation practice focusing on family cases, guardianship, child abuse, foster care, and issues involving IRIS and disabled adults.
