About Me

Married and 5 children

As the previous District Attorney of Waukesha County, WI I handled virtually every criminal case you can imagine from police executions, murders, sex assault, robbery, narcotics, corrpution, traffic, DWI, open records/meetings, elections and numerous other areas. I ran for Attorney General of Wisconsin in 2006 and was unsuccessful and left the DIstrict Attorney's office, entering into private practice.  I was the recepient of numerous state and federal awards and citations during my service as District Attorney and continue my involvement in the community today.
