Since graduating from University of Wisconsin Law School eight years ago, Truscenialyn Brooks-Williams has built herself a reputation for bringing diverse attorneys together and diligently representing her clients.

Her primary expertise is in patent litigation, along with working with labor and employment issues such as breach of contract, independent-contractor rights and non-compete clauses. One of her most notable triumphs over the years resulted in a $7.5 million jury verdict enforcing two of U.S. Water Service’s patents.

“Truscenialyn Brooks-Williams’ reputation precedes her across the Wisconsin legal community — and particularly in the city of Madison — for all the right reasons,” said Alexander Lodge, a lawyer at Foley & Lardner and fellow 2019 Up and Coming Lawyer award-winner. “Truscenialyn brings her exuberant drive to every facet of her professional and community work in Wisconsin’s legal community.”

Brooks-Williams regularly works pro bono as a zealous advocate for those needing legal representation. One of her most noteworthy pro bono cases included working to gain freedom for a wrongfully convicted felon. She also finds time to give back by organizing donation drives, working as a board member for the entrepreneurial group Doyenne and serving two terms on the State Bar of Wisconsin’s Board of Governors.

Brooks-Williams recently accepted a position as an associate at Chicago-based Stowell & Friedman, a firm dealing with employees’ civil rights, and will begin her new role there in November.

“I enjoy labor and employment because it allows me to help those who are experiencing discrimination in the workplace,” Brooks-Williams said. “I enjoy General Commercial Litigation because it allows me to be an in-court advocate for my client and allows me to engage in litigation, which is my favorite aspect of the practice. I see serving the community by providing legal services as both an honor and a privilege.”
