Personal Injury and Accidents

For over 130 years, the law firm of Cross Jenks Mercer and Maffei LLP has represented the victims of accidents in claims for recovery for personal injuries. The fact that the law firm also represents some of Wisconsin's largest insurers makes the firm uniquely qualified to insure that our clients get full and fair compensation and that it happens as quickly as possible.

Our firm cannot take on new clients with cases against current insurance company clients but if your case involves a claim against a company we do not represent, CJMM can provide you expert and compassionate representation that is equal to that of any other law firm – anywhere.


A personal injury claim requires a lawyer with specialized skills. Your attorney must know how to properly value your claim, and if necessary, how to successfully take your case to trial. Our work over the past century successfully representing our clients proves that the lawyers at Cross, Jenks Mercer and Maffei LLP are skilled at both.


Determining the value of your claim is critically important. While no one can provide you with an exact number, an accurate value range must be established for your case. Value the claim too low, and you will receive a settlement less than you deserve. Value a claim too high, and you may be looking at years of unnecessary delay, a costly trial and a result that is still less than you deserve.


With Cross Jenks Mercer & Maffei LLP, you can be assured that your case will be valued by experienced lawyers with a track record of success.

Sometimes, an insurance company will refuse to pay the fair value of your claim. When that happens, you need skilled trial lawyers on your side. The team of personal injury attorneys at CJMM is led by Wayne Maffei, the only Board Certified Civil Trial Specialist in Sauk County. Attorney Maffei has obtained the highest rating by Martindale-Hubbell, an international attorney rating service, and has been named a SuperLawyer by Law and Politics and Milwaukee Magazine for ten years running, a distinction awarded only to the top 5% of Wisconsin Lawyers as rated by other lawyers, judges and independent review and evaluation.

If you are involved in an accident you need to know that your case will be handled and evaluated by skilled and experienced attorneys. Call for an appointment as soon as possible after the accident.
