Meet Our Founder – Joshua T. Keleske
“Put your clients first and everything else will take care of itself.”
Those were the words of advice that Joshua received from his late grandfather, Earle L. Christ, an attorney and sole practitioner in Joshua’s hometown for more than 50 years, when he was admitted to The State Bar of Wisconsin in 1999. They also serve as the foundation for how Joshua practices law today. Joshua T. Keleske, P.L. was ultimately formed to fulfill Joshua’s dream of following in the footsteps of his grandfather. Joshua’s grandfather was instrumental in teaching him old-fashioned professionalism and a commitment to providing skilled legal counsel. Joshua can counsel you through your estate planning and corporate transactions with the confidence and expertise clients seek. With almost twenty-five years of real world experience, he knows how to bring many time and money-saving solutions to your planning concerns.
