Welcome To My Blog

My name is Rudy Kuss, and I am a Shareholder with Stevens & Kuss, S.C. in Brookfield, Wisconsin.  Our law firm primarily represents homeowners who have purchased defective property and homeowners who are experiencing problems with their newly-constructed home or a home improvement project. We pursue claims against sellers, real estate agents, home inspectors, developers, builders, contractors, and material suppliers.

I was born in Milwaukee and grew up in Wauwatosa. After graduating from Wauwatosa East High School in 1994, I attended the University of Wisconsin on an Evans Scholarship. I remained active in the Evans Scholars House, marched in the University of Wisconsin Marching Band, and graduated with a BBA from the Wisconsin School of Business in 1998. I moved back to the Milwaukee area and worked in sales for Northwestern Mutual Life, New Horizons Computer Learning Center, and Substance Abuse Management, Inc. before enrolling at Marquette Law School in the fall of 2002. I graduated from Marquette Law School in 2005 and started working as an associate for Attorney Daniel W. Stevens soon after. Attorney Stevens and I formed Stevens & Kuss, S.C. in January of 2012.

My wife and I purchased a home in Grafton the summer before I enrolled in law school, and we still live there with our son, daughter, and cat. 

I will share my residential real estate law experience and the lessons that I have learned from this experience through this blog, and I hope that this blog will become a resource for aspiring homeowners, real estate professionals and attorneys.
