Kirstin R. Mathers

Meet Kristin

Passion for Schools and Local Government

Kirstin Mathers brings her talent as a trusted advisor and litigator representing the interests of local governments and individuals to Attolles Law and is eager to expand her practice in an area she particularly enjoys – School Law.  Kirstin hails from multiple generations of educators and is dedicated to helping schools navigate all aspects of the law surrounding education.

In addition to her work with our School Law and Litigation teams, Kirstin’s practice also focuses on advising other public entities and private employers on all aspects of labor and employment law. Kirstin has extensive experience with myriad laws and regulations surrounding the relationship between an employer and employee and uses this experience to thoughtfully guide clients through complex situations. 

Kirstin seeks to understand her clients and each situation fully, as every client and situation is unique.  While Kirstin is driven to assist clients in preventing issues before they arise, her extensive litigation experience has employers covered should matters become contentious.  Her approach to issues focuses on proactivity – her mission is to help clients resolve issues before they mushroom into overwhelming problems.

Kirstin studied abroad in Madrid, Spain and developed a proficient level in Spanish (and a great love for the language, culture, food, and music) while living there.

Kirstin is a director of the Milwaukee Young Lawyer’s Association and a member of the Wisconsin School Attorney Association, the Council of School Attorneys, the State Bar of Wisconsin, and the Milwaukee Association of Women Lawyers.
