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 litigation practice on labor and employment law. She advises companies and businesses of all sizes on a broad spectrum of labor and employment issues, including employee handbooks, employment policies and procedures, 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 as well as administrative proceedings in a wide range of labor and employment matters, such as employment litigation, EEOC and DOL investigations, ALJ hearings, collective bargaining, contract negotiation, grievance arbitration, and unfair labor practice complaints.

Cody earned her Juris Doctor, with High Distinction, from the University of Iowa College of Law.  After law school, she served as a judicial clerk to the Honorable Chief Justice Patience Drake Roggensack of the Wisconsin Supreme Court during the 2015-2016 term.
