Biography

Renee developed her fastidious work ethic from her agricultural upbringing in Dubuque County, Iowa. Her sharp analytical mind initially drew her to study health sciences, but ultimately she pursued a law degree after seeing the legal profession as an opportunity to have greater impact. Her attributes are well-suited to the practice of law and have translated into a successful legal career. Attorney Read was previously a member of a general practice law firm in Janesville, where she was able to establish a strong foundation in multiple areas of law; that expansive knowledge and background continues to benefit her and her clients in the specialized practice she has today. Renee relocated to the Fox Cities and joined Remley & Sensenbrenner in 2010, and has since become a shareholder.

Numerous organizations have recognized Renee for her leadership and professional excellence. She was chosen as a Wisconsin Rising Star four years in a row by SuperLawyers Magazine (2015-2018), and has received distinction from Attorney & Practice Magazine, American Society of Legal Advocates, American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, and the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys. Attorney Read serves on the State Bar of Wisconsin Leadership Development Committee and was elected in 2019 to the Bar Board of Governors for which she also acts as the liaison to the Dispute Resolution Section Board. Renee is also heavily involved in her community, and deservedly received the Fox Cities Future 15 Award in 2013.
