Anne E. Flinchum

Attorney Anne E. Flinchum is new to the Van Lieshout Law Office. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and graduated from Marquette University Law School in the spring of 2016 (March Madness is a very hard time for her!). Prior to making the move to VLLO, Attorney Flinchum spent more than 5 years with a Creditor’s Rights firm out of Brookfield, Wisconsin, beginning as their law clerk during law school and eventually, working her way up to the Wisconsin State Managing Attorney. After driving back and forth from her home office in Green Bay, WI to Brookfield, WI more times than she can count, she decided to make a move to a smaller firm closer to her home in what she fondly refers to as “Geebz.” She is excited to expand her knowledge and share her experience with the Little Chute community.

Anne enjoys spending her time out of the office with her family, boyfriend, and lifelong friends. She has been to hundreds of concerts (including such bands as Fleetwood Mac, the Rolling Stones, and Neil Young) as music, especially seen live, holds a special place in her heart (“Buy the tickets!”). As a native of Green Bay who grew up about a block away from Lambeau Field, Anne is a huge Packer (/sports) fan, and she can be heard saying, “GPG,” at any time of the year.
