Wirth + Baynard was created in 2022 by merging two respected, experienced, and successful Milwaukee law firms, Gunta Law Offices, S.C. and Schmidt & Wirth. Founding partners Joseph Wirth and Jasmyne Baynard created this modern law firm with the goal of providing the highest quality legal representation, promoting diversity, and serving the needs of our clients for years to come.
Gunta Law Offices was founded in 1991 by Attorney Gregg Gunta who has been passionate in his goal of representing municipalities and their employees—specifically first responders & police officers. Since that time, the attorneys at Gunta Law Offices have successfully handled hundreds of cases supported by the firm’s expertise and commitment to its municipal, commercial and individual clients. The attorneys at Gunta Law Offices have in-depth experience handling complex litigation and transactional matters to successful conclusions.
Schmidt & Wirth was the latest iteration of a firm that was founded more than 50 years ago and consistently provided high quality legal representation and litigation services to insurance companies, municipalities, businesses, and individuals.
With more than 80 years combined legal experience, Wirth + Baynard represents clients in all of the civil courthouses of our state, in administrative courts, in the federal district courts, and in both state and federal courts of appeal.
Our consistent objective is to provide skilled and experienced counsel in a responsive and cost-efficient manner. While we are well-known for our abilities in successfully handling litigation, our firm members are also frequently asked to provide analysis, recommendations, and supervision of pre-suit matters to help mitigate consequences and, whenever feasible, resolve disputes without litigation.
Our attorneys have been rated by accreditation sources, and recognized by clients, as possessing the highest degree of legal skill and ethical standards.
