Mayville Officials May Cut Ties With Law Firm

(Mayville) Officials in Mayville apparently may be cutting ties with a law firm that provides services for the city. In an email dated April 22, obtained by open records request, Mayor Rob Boelk wrote to the city clerk’s office (quote) “going forward we will no longer be using attorney Madden/ Vanderloop. If we have outstanding issue [sic] they are working on have them finish up ASAP and refer everything to attorney Hammes in the future.”

For the past three years, Madden Vanderloop S.C. had been tasked with handling municipal court matters for the Mayville Police Department; the firm has had a working relationship with the city for ten years. City officials have not commented on the impetus behind the decision. We do know however that the legal firm recently changed its name to the Madden Law Group following departure of attorney Jeremy Vanderloop, which also occurred on April 22.

In a press release, Patrick Madden said his practice has made several new hires. He says the firm has been on an exciting growth trajectory for several years and this is the next step. Madden says their new structure, along with new technology and management systems, puts the firm in the best position to grow while continuing to provide superior representation to their current and future clients.

It is unclear if the city will be working with the new firm.
