WAUKESHA — Attorney Timothy J. Andringa, a partner in the Waukesha law firm of Cramer, Multhauf & Hammes, LLP, received the 2017 Robert L. Habush Trial Lawyer of the Year Award along with attorney Al Foeckler of Cannon & Dunphy, S.C. at the Wisconsin Association of Justice meeting held on Dec. 15. Andringa and Foeckler are the 18th recipients of the Award.

The Robert L. Habush Trial Lawyer of the Year Award was created in 2000 to recognize a Wisconsin trial lawyer who has made significant contributions to the trial bar by handling a case involving significant change in the law; prosecuting a precedent-setting or extraordinarily challenging case; or by donating time advocating for injured consumers.

Andringa and Foeckler represented the victims in a lawsuit who were injured and killed when a concrete panel weighing more than 13 tons fell from the facade of the Milwaukee O’Donnell Park garage structure. The panel killed 15-year-old Jared Kellner and severely injured Amy Wosinski and her son, Eric Wosinski. In 2013 a Milwaukee County Circuit Court jury returned a verdict for over $38,000,000 following a multi-week trial.
