A veteran of the service industry, Jamie has served in a number of leadership roles throughout his career.  At Ruder Ware, he’s responsible for all administrative aspects of the firm.

His aim is to handle and oversee firm operations thereby freeing the attorneys to do what they do best – providing high level service to clients.

A math major and physics minor turned actuary by training, Jamie takes an analytical approach to the financial aspects of firm management.  He heads the administrative leadership team working to improve their efficiencies and establish policies and procedures to ensure consistency and success within firm departments.

A self-described family man, Jamie is the proud father of three boys.  When he’s not firing up his handmade outdoor pizza oven, he and his wife are exploring Wisconsin back roads on their Harley.
