TRAVIS YANG

ATTORNEY

Tel: 920-645-6232  | tyang@mgwlawwi.com

Attorney Travis L. Yang is an Associate Attorney with Mayer, Graff & Wallace, LLP. Travis grew up in Sheboygan and attended Sheboygan North High School, and his immediate and extended family still reside there today.

 

Travis went on to attend UW-Whitewater and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. After finishing college, he worked in the legal department of a Madison-based nonprofit for almost three years, where he was exposed to the practice of law and saw how law could positively affect individuals and organizations. This experience, and the people he worked with, drove him to pursue his legal studies at Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee.

 

At Marquette, Travis was involved with the Asian Law Students Association, served on the executive board of the Marquette Benefits and Social Welfare Law Review, and participated in the National Appellate Advocacy Competition moot court program. His team competed in Boston and earned an award for the 3rd-best legal writing brief. 

 

Travis’ work experience includes internships with Justice Shirley S. Abrahamson in the Wisconsin Supreme Court and Judge William E. Duffin in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin. He clerked for law firms in Madison and Waukesha, as well. These experiences greatly enhanced his classroom learning and helped prepare him for the practice of law. 

 

After earning his law degree from Marquette in May 2019, Travis joined a Manitowoc law firm specializing in representing insurance companies and other litigation matters. He is excited to join the MGW team and fight for the rights of his clients.

 

Apart from work, Travis enjoys traveling and spending time with friends and family. He is always on the lookout for new places to explore and new foods to try. Travis is of Hmong descent and a fluent Hmong speaker and writer.
