Top 20 Workers Compensation and Employment Law
Hynes & Kuhn, S.C.
850 Elm Grove Rd.
Elm Grove, WI 53122
Jeff Hynes, the firm's managing shareholder, has been practicing in the field of labor and employment law for over 30 years. Mr. Hynes has worked, and represented employees in both the private and public sectors, and takes the view that most if not all work place disputes and challenges are amenable to resolution, IF the employer has the "resolve" and professionalism to communicate and negotiation in a constructive manner. However, where a negotiated resolution is not feasible, the firm will not hesitate to proceed with the filing of appropriate administrative agency complaints, and/or litigation in the state or federal courts.
Attorney Hynes has an outstanding reputation with his peers, as well as his adversaries. His credentials include being listed as one of Milwaukee's "Best Lawyers" (Milwaukee Magazine, 1999), being identified as a Wisconsin Super Lawyer in Labor and Employment Law (Law in Politics/SuperLawyers 2005-2013) and being identified as one of "Wisconsin's Top Rated Lawyers" (Legal Leaders' 2013). Attorney Hynes is also the longstanding President/Co-Chair of the Wisconsin Employment Lawyers Association (1993 to present), a member of the National Employment Lawyers Association, and serves on the Board of Directors for the Labor and Employment Section of the Wisconsin State Bar Association.
Attorney Hynes graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1981 with distinction, Phi Beta Kappa, with a B.S. in Economics. He obtained his Juris Doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Law School in 1984. Jeff was raised, attended high school, and resides in the Milwaukee Metropolitan area. Because of these roots, Attorney Hynes can often provide clients with useful insights about Wisconsin employers, particularly those in the Southeastern part of the state.
