THOMAS GUELZOW: ATTORNEY
During Tom's third year of law school at Valparaiso University, he found himself a young widower. He and his one year old son were head-residents of the male dorm. His personal experiences have served as a driving force of his work for nearly four decades. He has represented individuals against Goliath corporations, holding them accountable for the faulty design of machinery and/or their conduct that resulted in severe injuries or death to his clients.
Tom's background in the trades has served him well in the practice of law, shaping the focus of his work on personal injuries and product liability litigation. His experiences have given him insight and understanding of construction methods, machine design, and personal experience in the real world of construction work. Tom has used this platform of knowledge to help him investigate, confirm, and document many equipment failures and bring those cases to trial, not only for the benefit his clients, but with the ultimate goal of challenging industries to build better and safer products.
He has also developed a network of experts to aid investigations and provide testimony regarding safer design. The team at Guelzow Law Offices clearly understands the mission Tom has put forth building a solid case for the victims we represent, seeking to prevent similar injuries or deaths in the future where possible, and placing responsibility where it rightfully belongs.
As a litigation attorney, Tom stands as one of the most respected. He has served as President of the Wisconsin Academy of Trial Lawyers, on the Board of Governors of the American Association for Justice, and as Chair of the Litigation Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin. Tom has also taught at the University of Wisconsin Law School and Marquette University Law School numerous times. He has made many speeches and presentations to lawyers across Wisconsin on practicing law through the Wisconsin State Bar Association and the Wisconsin Academy of Trial Lawyers. Without exception, his speaking engagements and published works are to share information and educate the public and his peers regarding liability issues.
Today, Tom enjoys living in the Northwoods. He and his wife, Bambi, have three children and two grandchildren. He is certified as a minister and instructor of Stephen Ministries. As a private pilot with his own plane, Tom not only loves to fly but is also able to respond quickly to any call for help - often flying across the country for consultations, investigations, or representations of clients.
