Located along the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan at the confluence of three rivers: the Menomonee, the Kinnickinnic, and the Milwaukee, is the city of Milwaukee. It is the largest city in Wisconsin and the 26th most populous city in the United States with a estimated population of more than 605,000. Additionally, it is the county seat of Milwaukee County and the main cultural and economic center of the Milwaukee–Racine–Waukesha Metropolitan Area. Milwaukee is recognized for its museums, fine dining and hotels, professional sports, performing arts, gardens and parks, and Milwaukee County Zoological Gardens.

Milwaukee was once the home to four of the world’s largest breweries (Schlitz, Blatz, Pabst, and Miller), and was the number one beer producing city in the world for several years. Despite the decline in its position as the world’s leading beer producer, one remaining major brewery, Miller Brewing Company remains a key employer by employing over 2,200 of the city’s workers. Twenty-two percent of Milwaukee’s workforce is involved in manufacturing, twenty-seven percent is involved in health care and the fastest-growing segments of the Milwaukee economy are service and managerial jobs. The Milwaukee area is home to the headquarters of American Signal Corporation, Bucyrus International, the Koss Corporation, and Master Lock. In the recent years, Milwaukee has endured significant renovations and additions to the city including the Milwaukee Riverwalk, Miller Park, and Pier Wisconsin, as well as major reconstruction to the Milwaukee Auditorium.

Milwaukee’s history of manufacturing and industry makes asbestos exposure an issue. Workers and loved ones who have been exposed to asbestos may be at risk for developing mesothelioma cancer. We provide information about mesothelioma treatment options in and around Milwaukee at the bottom of this page. Additionally, mesothelioma attorneys may be able to give guidance if you were exposed to asbestos in Milwaukee and then diagnosed with mesothelioma.
