2014 Wisconsin Trial Lawyer of the Year
Wausau Attorney Christine Bremer Muggli Receives the Honor
Wausau attorney Christine Bremer Muggli received the Robert L. Habush Trial Lawyer of the Year Award from the Wisconsin Association for Justice (WAJ) at the organization's Annual Dinner on Dec. 3, 2010 in Milwaukee.
The Robert L. Habush Trial Lawyer of the Year Award was bestowed on Bremer Muggli because she has "made an outstanding contribution to the public interest and has demonstrated compassion and commitment to advocacy on behalf of injured consumers," said Paul Gagliardi, WAJ's president in 2010.
Muggli, an attorney with more than 30 years experience, was listed on the Wisconsin Super Lawyers list in 2009 and 2010. She was named an honoree in Wisconsin Law Journal's annual publication, Women in the Law, in 2009.
She graduated magna cum laude from Loyola University in 1975 and received her law degree from Loyola University School of Law in 1978.
Muggli is a past president of WAJ, is on the board of directors for the Wisconsin Civil Justice Education Foundation Inc. and serves as vice chairwoman for the University of Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service Advisory Board.
She was born in Chicago and now resides in Wausau with her husband, Paul. She is the mother of two daughters Hannah and Rachel. She practices primarily in personal injury, accidents, professional malpractice, product liability, and worker's compensation.
WAJ established the Robert L. Habush Trial Award in 2000 to recognize a trial lawyer who has made contributions to the trial bar by handling a case involving a significant change in the law or a precedent-setting suit, or by donating time on a committee or project that benefited injured consumers. The award is named in honor of Robert L. Habush for his years of dedication and commitment to the fight for the rights of accident victims nationwide and for the tremendous time and energy he has devoted to WAJ.
The Wisconsin Association for Justice stands with consumers to promote a fair and effective justice system for every citizen, not just the privileged and wealthy.
