Francis Deisinger, Former MBA President, Appointed to Governor’s Criminal Justice Coordinating Council

Reinhart Attorney Appointed to Governor’s Criminal Justice Coordinating Council

Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren s.c. Shareholder Francis Deisinger has been appointed to the state Criminal Justice Coordinating Council. Deisinger is a member of the Reinhart litigation law practice, and he brings to the council more than 30 years of legal experience. He is also a past president of both the State Bar of Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Bar Association.

Governor Tony Evers on August 22, 2019, signed Executive Order #41, recreating the council first established in 2012 by former Gov. Scott Walker. Evers signed the order for the council so the group can, in part, find, “sound, evidence-based practices that focus our resources on programs that work,” according to a press release from Evers’ office. The council is chaired by state Attorney General Josh Kaul and Department of Corrections Secretary-designee Keven Carr.

“I’m grateful to Gov. Evers for appointing me to the Council to improve public safety and assure fairness to all our citizens by identifying evidence-based practices that will improve the effectiveness, efficiency and impartiality of the criminal justice system throughout the state and at every stage of the process,” Deisinger said. “I look forward to working with the outstanding public servants on the Council who are committed to this goal.”

Deisinger has represented a full spectrum of litigation plaintiffs, defendants, and petitioners over the course of his career. He also served as Reinhart’s corporate counsel and now focuses his practice on fiduciary, trust, estate and donor disputes, and on professional liability matters during which he represents lawyers and law firms.

“Fran is an excellent choice for the Council,” said Reinhart CEO Jerome Janzer. “He is a persuasive advocate with a deep commitment to integrity and fair application of the law. There is no doubt that Fran will make meaningful contributions toward the goals Gov. Evers has set forth.”
