Vote Zach Whitney

for Milwaukee County Circuit Court - Branch 5

Tuesday, February 18 and Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Dear Neighbor,

I'm Zach Whitney and I'm asking for your vote to serve our community on the Milwaukee County Circuit Court.


I'm a person with strong values who strives for justice. Milwaukee is my home where my family and I love visiting our parks and attending a wide array of cultural offerings. I'm a resident of the Jackson Park neighborhood, where I live with my wife Madeline, and our two children Harvey and Frankie, both students at Milwaukee Public Schools.


I've been fighting for justice in the Milwaukee County Circuit Courts for over fifteen years. I spent eight years as a Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney, where I focused on prosecuting gun violence and domestic violence. I witnessed how violence tears families and neighborhoods apart. It was hard, emotional work, which shaped my commitment to justice. It is a public service of which I'm proud. It helped me understand that our judicial system can only work when both sides are represented equally and diligently.

Like others attempting to provide for their families, my time serving Milwaukee County was cut short by Act 10, which compelled me to leave public service. Since entering private practice, I've focused on commercial and business litigation. For the last seven years, I've been privileged to represent a wide variety of clients, including many small businesses. It's been an honor to help "main street" navigate the complexities of our civil court system.

My background as a trial attorney is vast and my knowledge of our courts is deep. I'm running for Branch 5 of the Circuit Court because the people of Milwaukee County deserve to have my insight and progressive voice on the bench. Milwaukee County residents have the right to elect a member of our community, who has the experience, commitment to justice, and work ethic, to serve as our judge.

- Zach
