  • Christopher Lambrecht’s Wisconsin Lutheran College experience is one that has stayed with him. From the first time he visited WLC as a college freshman looking to transfer from a large university, Christopher says, he felt welcomed, connected, and comfortable. For Christopher, WLC gave him the chance to learn in an environment where faith was always at the center.

    After transferring to WLC, Christopher began an internship at a nearby law firm and was inspired to pursue a career as an attorney.  He attended Marquette University Law School and discovered his passion for consumer bankruptcy law. In Christopher’s current job at Watton Law Group in Milwaukee, WI, he continues his focus on consumer bankruptcy while potentially moving into new areas.

    Christopher says WLC cemented his faith and gave him a strong foundation for his career. The faith-centric approach, something Christopher implemented into his own life and career, makes him a better attorney, he says. He works with people facing incredible challenges, and he is grateful for an education and faith that also taught him how to empathize. Being a calming and helpful figure for these people is what Christopher finds most rewarding about his job.

    When the stresses of his job become overwhelming, Christopher remembers one of his favorite Bible verses, Romans 12:12: “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” This verse, a source of inspiration and comfort, helps Christopher to keep things in perspective.

    His advice to WLC students is to take advantage of all the resources available. He also encourages people to take seriously the opportunity to study theology at a high level. It is something he applies to all areas of his life, personally and professionally.
