Reg P. Wydeven
Hoping to follow in his father’s footsteps from a young age, Reg’s practice primarily consists of advising individuals on estate planning, estate settlement and elder law matters. His dad, Dennis, retired from McCarty Law in 2004 and the two worked closely in these areas until that time. As Reg represents clients in matters like guardianship proceedings and long-term care admissions, he feels grateful to be able to offer families thorough legal help in their time of need.
Reg holds an Advanced Care Planning Certified Facilitator certificate, conducted by the Fox Valley ACP Partnership in collaboration with Community Care and Bellin Health.
Reg has been honored as a “Rising Star” for his work in elder law and also received the local “Future 15 Young Professional Award.” He also writes a weekly FYI column for The Post Crescent, which provides legal commentary on a wide array of topics including estate planning, product liability, investments, and unconventional legal news.
