About Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C.

Founded in 1943, Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C. has grown into a full-service law firm with four offices in Illinois and Wisconsin. Although rooted in the Midwest, WHD has received national recognition. LexisNexis® Martindale-Hubbell® named WHD to its inaugural Top Ranked Law Firms list and The National Journal included the firm on its "Midsize Hotlist."

The firm has eschewed the traditional partnership model of many law firms in favor of a corporate structure. WHD has a (non-attorney) chief executive, a board of directors and vice presidents.
