Where Carey comes from:
Carey is a lifelong resident of the area. Carey is the eighth of nine children. Carey’s dad is a veteran and a deacon with the Catholic Church, but he calls his mom the true saint for staying home to raise Carey, his four brothers and four sisters. In 2003, Carey and his wife Amy, a “farm girl” from Wrightstown, WI, moved from Kimberly to Harrison, where they have built their home and raised three daughters.
Carey’s rewarding career:
Carey attended Xavier High School (Appleton), stayed in Wisconsin for college and graduated from Marquette Law School in 1997. He began his career in a local law firm, where he was appointed as Special Prosecutor to handle cases for district attorneys in three surrounding counties. Carey’s current practice focuses on children’s and family law, as well as civil and criminal litigation. Carey serves as a Guardian ad Litem, representing the interests of children in Calumet, Outagamie and Winnebago counties. Carey lives by the saying, “If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life!”
Carey’s love for this community:
As a lawyer, Carey’s job allows him to help troubled youth, families in crisis and those injured – often through no fault of their own. Helping people make it through the most difficult challenges of life is why Carey does what he does. When he is not working, Carey can be found outside camping with his family, bicycling/racing around Lake Winnebago, gardening with his wife and children, or playing with his granddaughter.
Carey as Judge:
Carey will bring the same passion he has for family, work and community to the bench. Calumet County residents can be assured they will get a judge who lives in this county and a judge who will work every day with the same values of citizens who live and work here with him.
