Bakke Norman Welcomes Attorney Jeffrey A. Cormell

Bakke Norman Law Office is pleased to announce Attorney Jeffrey A. Cormell of Hayward has joined the firm. Mr. Cormell will continue to represent clients in Civil Litigation, Family Law and Criminal Law matters from Bakke Norman's new office located at 10576 Main Street, Hayward. In addition to litigation, Mr. Cormell has vast experience in Federal Indian Law matters, and in recent years specialized in tribal hemp operations. He was an integral part of creating Wisconsin's industrial hemp law, Act 100, and lobbied for inclusion of Tribal Nations in the industrial hemp section of the 2018 Federal Farm Bill. His expertise is aimed at all levels of the cannabis industry including dealing with state and federal legislators and regulatory agencies.

Bakke Norman's managing shareholder Tom Schumacher notes: "Jeff's experience in tribal law and his specialized knowledge of the emerging areas of hemp and CBD is a natural fit with Bakke Norman's existing team of business and litigation attorneys. The addition of the Hayward office provides our firm the ability to better represent new and existing clients in Northwest Wisconsin." Mr. Cormell will also be available to meet with clients at Bakke Norman's offices in New Richmond, Menomonie and Baldwin.
