Attorney Philip J. Ohrtmann is an associate attorney at Watton Law Group’s Wisconsin branch. A dedicated advocate for his clients, he assists individuals and families who are facing extremely difficult financial problems, utilizing federal bankruptcy codes to help them find the solutions they need to move forward. He is driven by a long-standing desire to help others and finds value in being able to assist his clients with an array of debt relief and related matters every day.

In his practice, Attorney Ohrtmann believes that the most important thing is a high attention to detail. Bankruptcy codes provide means of relief for individuals, families, and businesses facing significant debts—but these laws can be extremely complex. With his thorough understanding of applicable statutes, as well as his attention to detail, Attorney Ohrtmann is able to boil down convoluted laws into specific, actionable steps for his clients. Because every situation is different, he takes the big picture of bankruptcy law and narrows it down to meet each individual’s unique needs.

Attorney Ohrtmann is also extremely empathetic when it comes to helping people who are up against serious financial challenges. He recognizes how good people can find themselves in difficult situations, often as a result of factors outside of their control. Attorney Ohrtmann’s goal is to ease his clients’ stress and take the weight off their shoulders through education, innovation, and optimism. He firmly believes that every financial problem—no matter how large or complex—has a solution. He strives to find those solutions for his clients and help them regain financial control.

Attorney Ohrtmann was born and raised in a small town in Northwest Illinois. He moved to Milwaukee, WI to receive his undergraduate education at Marquette University, majoring in economics. Upon relocating, he discovered his love for the city and remained there to complete his legal studies at Marquette University Law School. Currently, he is admitted to practice in the state courts of Wisconsin, as well as the federal courts in the Eastern and Western Districts of Wisconsin.

In his free time, Attorney Ohrtmann enjoys spending time outdoors, hiking, and traveling.
