Why be a criminal defense lawyer? Series on Careers

Attorney Nate Dineen was not ready to hit the real world when he decided to apply for law school, but it put him on the path to be one of Wisconsin’s top lawyers. Dineen currently practices family, real estate, personal injury, and criminal law as a partner of Vanden Heuvel and Dineen, S.C., which has offices in the Milwaukee, Fox Cities, and Door County areas. The nuances and specificity of some criminal law aspects attracted Dineen to the field, leading him to take advanced courses in standardized field sobriety and blood testing for drunk driving cases. Dineen says he never expected how much science he would use in his cases.



Named a Wisconsin Law Journal’s Up and Coming Super Lawyer in 2013, Dineen says his work is rewarding because of the help and expertise he is able to provide in a person’s darkest hours.
