Meet Attorney Eric Pitsch

A Word From Our Attorney

My name is Eric Pitsch. I am a Wisconsin native and a compassionate attorney who believes in hard work. Prior to establishing Pitsch Law Offices, LLC, in Appleton, I honed my legal skills in courtrooms with Hinshaw & Culbertson and other firms. In 2013, I was selected for inclusion in Rising Star list published in Wisconsin Super Lawyers. Approximately 2 percent of attorneys across the nation receive this honor.

As a gun shop owner, I take a firm stance when it comes to protecting and upholding our constitutional rights. As a former prosecutor, I know how your opponent will prepare their case and am able to anticipate the challenges they will make.

It is important for you to know that I have the knowledge and the experience necessary to protect your rights, but I don't spend a lot of my time telling you about my qualifications. I spend my time showing you.

When you become my client, you will know that I have your back. You will know that I will not stop until we have done everything we can to exhaust your legal options and get you the best outcome possible. You never have to call me and ask how your case is going, because I keep you informed throughout the process.

In addition, I always conduct my own comprehensive investigation, talking to witnesses personally and getting copies of all tests, surveillance video and any other evidence that could become a factor in your case. Many other lawyers do not take the time to do this or don't know exactly what to look for in the information.
