Tristan Eagon is a Senior Attorney serving clients in both our Dodgeville and Fort Atkinson Offices. She is a dedicated advocate, committed to finding a solution to any problem put before her. Her reputation as being strong-willed and having a savvy legal mind is why she is viewed as a formidable opponent. Although a fierce litigator, Tristan has a firm understanding of alternative dispute resolution and enjoys conducting mediations by identifying issues and oftentimes finding unique resolutions in matters.
Tristan grew up in the rolling hills of Ohio on her grandparents’ farm. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice with a minor in history at Muskingum University. She successfully became a second-generation law enforcement officer for several years before realizing that her love of the law extended far beyond criminal investigation and attended law school in Lansing, Michigan. Passing both the Michigan and Wisconsin Bar Examination, Tristan relocated to the Madison area which she has gladly called home since 2013. She has taken advance coursework in mediation in both law school and through the University of Wisconsin. She has worked as a defense attorney, prosecutor, and family law attorney – so being well-rounded is an attribute well achieved.
While not working, she loves spending time with her family exploring new parks, taking mini-vacations, and enjoying the occasional motorcycle ride when the weather permits. She also has a love of aviation and dreams of completing her pilot’s license when the time is right. Meanwhile, she serves her community, doats on her daughter, and strives to make at least one person laugh every day.
Tristan gladly accepts anyone who is interested in alternative dispute resolution. She one of about 165 members of the Collaborative Family Law Counsel of Wisconsin (CFLCW) which is a not for profit association of collaborative professionals practicing and promoting collaborative law, an alternative to the traditional court system. Tristan accepts clients for Family Law in Iowa, Dane, Jefferson and Sauk counties and Criminal Matters in Dane and Sauk counties.
