Testimonials

“Our experience with the Anderson & O’Brien law firm began after I was in a serious automobile accident. We contacted the firm and were put in touch with Attorney Rich Fuller. From that day on, we knew we were in good hands. My injuries were so severe that I had to have two surgeries to fuse my cervical spine. Ultimately our case went to a jury trial. Rich and his team were amazing. They were all thorough, professional, and knowledgeable. Rich included us in every aspect of the case right from the beginning. Rich always had time to explain what was happening or answer any of our many questions. It was clearly important to him that we always knew what was happening and what to expect. His communication was exceptional through ALL stages of the process over the five years we worked with him. We were always a part of the team. I cannot describe how thankful we are to Rich for the personal sacrifices he made in order to help us ultimately win our case.”    E.P.

“Attorney Fuller represented us in a Personal Injury case that took five years to work through the system. In addition to his excellent understanding of the law, he is an effective litigator and was able to secure for us a substantial verdict that will cover future medical expenses. What I found refreshing about our interaction with Attorney Fuller is his demeanor. He always treated us with respect, was candid on expectations, communicated effectively and worked diligently on the case for five years. I would recommend him to anyone involved in a Personal Injury case.”    J.P.

“Attorney Fuller represented me in a Personal Injury case. It was amazing how well Attorney Fuller could identity what were my needs and concerns. I had a motorcycle accident and this resulted in a broken back and back surgery. I remember my first meeting with Attorney Fuller: I was experiencing pain, fear, confusion, and made the statement “I do not know why I am here nor do I know what questions to ask you.” He was so understanding and reassured me he was available to assist me through this experience. He was never pushy-quite the contrary-very understanding and very patient. Our first several meeting were short and sweet as he was aware of the discomfort I felt. Gradually we were able to meet for longer periods of time. He showed compassion with every meeting. He was truly concerned about my health and welfare. He made suggestions but always gave me the option to make the final decisions.
He has professional integrity. He would explain to me what I did not understand until I understood what was being said. I never felt rushed and never felt like I was many of his clients-he treated me individually in a very respectful and professional manner. He is a very patient man. He is a very humble man. He is not the Attorney who is doing this as a job for his personal gain-he is doing this job cause he wants to do what is right. He was always prepared and I never felt I had to review my case with him because he had forgotten who I was. He reviewed the past, dealt with the present and prepared me for the future. Thank you Attorney Fuller.”

“In my case Attorney Fuller and the Anderson Firm demonstrated several skill sets a person in my position needed.  Additionally, Fuller is empathetic and understanding to the situations I was going through for the duration of my case.  He was highly knowledgeable of civil auto accident law and was always timely in keeping me apprised of what was going on, along with creating and filing court documents. If I had questions, he returned my calls personally and answered my long list of questions. If I was not able to communicate with calls, we were able to use email for ease.  The best decision I made, was to seek counsel with Attorney Richard Fuller.  He and his staff were more organized than I in keeping everything straight and fully understood what was needed legally during my recovery and took excellent notes in the details of my individual scenario, and reviewed the boxes and boxes of medical records in detail to prepare for ultimate settlement in this case.  After a five-year battle with opposing counsel and insurances, he never gave up to help me and he and the firm were able to obtain a fair settlement for me. Fuller was also willing to take my case to Jury trial if I wanted to go farther and have a jury decide.  There was no doubt in my mind, he had my best interest at heart, understood my injuries and suffering over the recovery period and dealing with other multiple facets to my case. His prior experience provided much knowledge and from that he provided fair recommendations and was thorough in explaining the processes and what was or was not helpful during all legal processes.  I thank Attorney Fuller and the Anderson Law Firm as well as the detail of their staff in keeping everything straight. Their diligence removed some of the stress I was going through as there was less to worry about and provided me time to focus on me and healing.”  M.L.

“We went to Anderson & O’Brien Law firm after I slipped and fell on some ice outside of a restaurant one winter and seriously fractured my ankle. My ankle had to be surgically repaired with a metal plate and lots of screws. My brother-in-law, who is an attorney in Florida, told us that we needed an attorney and recommended them to us. Fortunately, due to Attorney Fuller’s knowledge and experience we were able to reach a satisfactory settlement out of court. He was very good at explaining everything every step of the way so that we were able to make good decisions on how to proceed through each process. Because of his care and concern, we felt like he was an old family friend and not just our attorney. We are very grateful for all his and his team’s hard work. We would highly recommend him and his firm to anyone who is in need of an attorney.”  C.N.

“I just recently settled my personal injury claim for more than I had expected, without going to trial. My attorney, Rich Fuller, made that happen. Four years ago, I suffered serious injuries that required a 4 hour surgery, 4 days in hospital and then 2 months in a skilled nursing facility, followed by almost a year of recovery at home.
When you’re in the early stages of recovery, it can be hard to think about anything but the pain and getting the help you need right then. A friend visiting in my early days in the nursing home said, “If you decide you want to take legal action against the person who did this, I can recommend a good lawyer who did well for me.” At the time, I wasn’t sure if I wanted a lawyer.
Then I got a letter from the insurance company of the person who caused my injuries, asking me to call them and tell them how I was doing. I was drugged up for pain, and I knew it would not be good to call and probably have my call recorded. I decided instead to contact the lawyer my friend had recommended, Rich Fuller, at Anderson, O’Brien in Stevens Point. Rich visited and listened to my story, and he explained how he could help. It felt good to have Rich on my side. He took care of all the paperwork to start legal action and to answer questions from Medicare and my insurance company. He arranged for video depositions on Zoom and prepared me for the questions I would have to answer. Then he worked with the lawyer for the defendant’s insurance company to set up a mediation session on Zoom. That mediation session did not bring us an acceptable settlement, but several months later, we got another offer, and the negotiations resumed. Rich was a great negotiator, and I was very happy with the amount of the final settlement. We were able to achieve this without going to trial.
Throughout this entire process, I felt that Rich was my partner in our quest for a fair settlement. It was easy and comfortable to work with Rich, and he took care of all the details that would have confused and stressed me out. He listened to my concerns and answered my questions. Without his work on my behalf, I would have had nothing. With his hard work and support, we settled my claim in a way that felt fair, and even generous.
Pursuing a personal injury claim is a daunting process, even more so at a time when you are injured and vulnerable. It’s important to have a lawyer you can trust. Rich Fuller was that for me, and I am delighted to share this testimonial with anyone having to make these difficult decisions.”

Attorney Jacobson joined the firm as an associate in the fall of 2011. Raised in Mosinee, Wisconsin, Brent is a 2002 graduate of Mosinee High School. He went on to graduate with highest honors from business school at Saint Cloud State University in 2006.

Attorney Jacobson concentrates on a unique mix of insurance defense, personal injury and business litigation. Though Brent’s practice routinely leads him to State court, he also handles legal disputes that have placed his clients in Federal courts, either because of the citizenship of the parties or because the issues involved raise questions of federal law. Outside of litigation, Brent has also handled arbitrations and mediation on behalf of business clients under the rules of the American Arbitration Association and the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution.

Brent feels that the greatest enjoyment from practicing law comes from helping a variety of clients find the best possible solution to resolving their legal matters. He is committed to working closely with clients to ensure that their goals are developed into an effective litigation strategy.

” Brent represented my corporation in a lengthy, complicated lawsuit. Having never dealt with any type of lawsuit, I had no idea what to expect. Throughout the entire process Brent kept me well informed about what was happening, why it was happening and what to expect next. He did an excellent job representing me and my corporation, which helped resolve the lawsuit to the satisfaction of all involved. I would highly recommend Brent to anyone needing legal counsel.” TBB
