Former Lawyer To Serve 6-Month Jail Term

A former Milwaukee-area lawyer convicted of stealing a-million dollars from clients and his onetime law partner will serve a six month jail term.

Robert Menard pleaded guilty in January to four felony counts of theft and embezzlement.

Menard reportedly took the money from victims who were already hurting because they were worker’s compensation clients who’d been injured on the job.

The longtime attorney was first charged in 2019, and disbarred in 2020. Menard and four of his victims gave emotional testimony during a two-hour sentencing hearing Thursday.
