Cody Elyse Brookhouser-Sisney

“I distill complex legal concepts and complicated facts in order to discern the real issue, then arrive at a common sense answer and resolution for the client.”

Cody focuses her practice on labor and employment law. She advises companies of all sizes through a broad spectrum of labor and employment matters including employment policies, hiring/firing decisions, discipline issues, wage and hour issues and compliance with local, state and federal laws. She is responsive and pragmatic, helping clients understand their legal rights and responsibilities.

She also advocates for clients in federal and state court and administrative proceedings in a wide range of labor and employment matters, such as employment litigation, collective bargaining, contract negotiation, grievance arbitration, and unfair labor practice complaints.

In addition to her law clerk experience at McGrath North, Cody also served as a judicial clerk to the Honorable Chief Justice Patience Drake Roggensack of the Wisconsin Supreme Court during the 2015-2016 term.
