Jeff Conen joined Hansen Reynolds LLC in 2020 after a 23-year career as a Milwaukee County Circuit Judge, in which he presided over 400 jury trials in both civil and criminal cases. Prior to serving as a Circuit Judge, Jeff was elected Municipal Judge in the City of Glendale and was in private practice, handling a variety of civil and criminal litigation matters. His extensive background as a judge and experience in private practice gives Jeff the unique ability to see the parties’ needs and interests from a neutral position in a wide variety of legal areas.

Jeff has served on the faculty for the Office of Judicial Education for over 25 years and has taught judges in the areas of evidence, alternative dispute resolution, domestic violence and a variety of civil litigation matters. This, combined with his years on the bench, has given him the foundation needed to consult on effective trial presentation, evidentiary analysis, and jury selection.

Jeff’s practice concentrates on mediations, arbitration, trial and jury consulting, and general civil litigation. He has a passion for finding alternative ways to resolve disputes in a quick and cost effective manner.
