Located along the southwest shore of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is the largest city in Wisconsin. The origins of the name Milwaukee are disputed, either coming from the Algonquian word “Millioke” meaning “good”, “beautiful” and “pleasant land”, or from the Potawatomi or Ojibewe languages meaning “gathering place by the water.”

Also known as the “City of Festivals,” Milwaukee hosts a variety of cultural and musical events each year including Summerfest, the world’s largest musical festival. The Federal Courthouse in downtown Milwaukee located at 517 East Wisconsin Avenue hosts the bankruptcy hearings for Chapter 7 clients residing in the counties of Dodge, Milwaukee, Sheboygan, Ozaukee, Washington, and Waukesha and for Chapter 13 clients residing in the counties of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington, and Waukesha.

The Federal Courthouse was constructed from 1892-99 and was originally used as a United States Post Office, Court and Customs House. The building fills an entire city block between Jackson and Jefferson Streets and is located just three blocks from Lake Michigan. Designed in the style of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, the building notably contains Roman arches, gray granite stones, intricate gargoyles, and a soaring tower. Today, the courthouse is on the national Register of Historic Places and is designated as a Milwaukee City Landmark. Hop on a tour of the courthouse during Doors Open Milwaukee in late September for a rare inside look at the building. Click here for google map directions to the Federal Courthouse.

Head a few blocks east down Wisconsin Avenue to the stunning Milwaukee Art Museum, Discovery World, and Lake Michigan. The art museum, designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, contains a moveable sunscreen with a 217-foot wingspan that opens and closes twice a day.

Milwaukee also houses the impressive Harley-Davidson Museum located in the Menomonee Valley. The museum holds two-stories of exhibits that Geraci Law employees were recently treated to a tour of by Mr. Geraci. Harley-Davidson Motor Company was founded in a small wooden shed in 1903 in Milwaukee and remains an iconic aspect of the city’s culture.

Attorney Lisa Lynn Ellmaurer was born and raised in Milwaukee and has been an attorney at Geraci Law since 2014. She attends the firm’s Chapter 13 341 hearings at both the Milwaukee and Racine sites. While in Milwaukee, Lisa recommends attending a Brewer’s game, kayaking in the Milwaukee River, or spending time at one of the city’s many summer festivals.
