EXPERIENCED LOCAL COUNSEL WITH A PROVEN TRACK RECORD
People come to our firm when they need attorneys who have the time to listen, create a customized solution and work with them closely throughout the settlement and litigation process. Clients meet directly with one of our three attorneys, not with an assistant, paralegal or junior attorney. Unlike many firms, an attorney will handle your case from start to finish. At Gergen, Gergen & Pretto, S.C. we strive to ensure every client and every case gets the attention they deserve.
Our attorneys value frequent communication with you. We will not leave you in the dark about your case. We have a long history of success in court and will talk you through the process from start to finish. Having had success in court yields better settlement offers and constant communication yields better client relationships.
We know how to meet your legal needs with personal attention and care. If you need home or hospital visits for personal injury, civil and estate planning cases, we will come to you. We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you won’t pay attorney’s fees unless we are successful. We are here to help you. Give us a call.

What Our Clients Have to Say
“Dawn has brought light to a very difficult and sometimes painful situation for our family. Navigating the courts can be overwhelming. With Dawn’s knowledge and dedication to our case, she has made our situation much easier. Anytime I needed, I was able to reach Dawn and she always offered assistance. Additionally, the Gergen, Gergen & Pretto, S. C., staff is always pleasant and willing to help. I appreciate all they do.”
Wanda, Personal Injury Client
“When I had my car accident, I was lost. I had no idea where to start. I contacted and hired Robert Pretto. He helped me navigate the uncharted territory and did so with the right combination of professionalism and a "go get-um" attitude. I was very thankful I made the choice to have Robert Pretto on my side.”
"Before I met with Dawn, I felt like I had hit bottom with my divorce and battling for custody of my daughter and unborn son. If it was not for her and her proficiency, I would not be where I am at today. She believed in me and gave me the willpower to fight for what I believed in for myself and my children. Each time I see Dawn, she brings a positive experience and it has helped me relax in the courtroom, knowing she knows all the intricate details of my case. "
Peter Andrews, Business Attorney
"Attorney Pretto is a diligent and responsive advocate. Although our clients disagreed about the merits of a particular case, because of the way Attorney Pretto approached the litigation, we were able to reach a good result for both sides."
Anonymous, Car Accident Victim
“I hired Robert Pretto to represent me in my Personal Injury Claim as a result of an auto accident. It was a difficult time for me, and Robert Pretto made my fears diminish. He took control and made me feel very comfortable going through all this. He answered all questions I had with expertise and extreme knowledge . . . and always very reassuring and always available to talk. I would recommend Mr. Pretto, for a job well done with a very caring attitude. I am so grateful to him.”
Robert Kasieta, Personal Injury Attorney
"I endorse this lawyer. Bob is a fine lawyer who serves his personal injury clients very well."
Amanda, Former Client
“I hired Mr. Preto approximately four years ago. Mr. Pretto was ready to help from the first phone call. I had many questions and needed the information to get started. Mr. Pretto was easy to contact with any question or concern. He was a very thorough man to work with. Without Mr. Pretto, I wouldn’t have had the outcome that I had and it would have been a very different situation. I am blessed to have met and worked with Mr. Robert Pretto. Thank you, Mr. Pretto, for your time and commitment to my case.”
Tom, Personal Injury Client
“I hired Bob Pretto for a traffic accident in which the other motorist failed to yield at an intersection. Bob was very professional and drove from Madison to come to my home in Juneau County the day after the accident. He advised me to keep all receipts and to make a daily log. He would even do every other day checks on me to see how I was doing, or if I had any questions for him. All said and done, a job well done. Bob is always at the top of my contact list under the letter A, for an A+ and my attorney.”
“Going to court is scary. It is reassuring to work with someone like Dawn who is confident and knowledgeable in the law and the process. Working with an attorney familiar with the Dodge County court system was helpful in our case.”
