Gov. Scott Walker on Friday appointed a partner from Foley & Lardner LLP to the Waukesha County bench, according to a news release.
Michael Aprahamian will replace Donald Hassin Jr., who retired Sept. 30 after 20 years as a judge. Hassin retired in the middle of his term, so Aprahamian will have to run for election in April.
At Foley & Lardner, Aprahamian handles litigation and appellate work for insurance matters, according to the firm’s website. He is also in charge of ethics training for the firm and serves on the Wisconsin Judicial Commission.
Aprahamian graduated from Yale University Law School in 1992. After graduation, he clerked for Senior 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Richard Cudahy, according to the news release.
