Jeremy P. Levinson, 1969-2020

Halling & Cayo is saddened by the loss of our colleague, Jeremy Levinson, after his battle with a long illness. Jeremy was a bold advocate and a strong  partner. He was a graduate of UMass Amherst and the University of Wisconsin Law School, where he served on law review and moot court. Following graduation, he was a judicial law clerk for the Hon. John Reynolds (E.D. Wis.) and then went into private practice.

He joined our law firm in 2012, where he was a leader in political and election law, serving clients ranging from first-time candidates in local races to those in statewide office. He was also skilled in civil litigation and the defense of regulated professionals. His sharp wit and intellect served his clients well in the courtroom and out.

Jeremy was a man devoted to his family,  his adopted hometown of Milwaukee, and to the legal profession. He was a lover of nature, and spent his free time enjoying the outdoors with his family and his camera.

His passing is a loss to our community and our firm.
