Gov. Tony Evers has named Jack L. Dávila the newest Milwaukee County circuit court judge. Dávila fills a vacancy made by Judge Maxine White’s appointment to the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.
Dávila is a partner at Previant Law Firm and he has represented clients in personal-injury and workers’ compensation cases since 2011.
He also volunteers with Voces de la Frontera Legal Clinic and the Volunteer Legal Clinic at the United Community Center, serving on the board of Voces de la Frontera Action, and acting as a consultant attorney to the Mexican Consulate in Milwaukee.
In a statement, Dávila said he pledges to work hard to ensure everyone who enters his courtroom is treated with dignity and respect, regardless of background.
Dávila is a UW-Madison and Marquette Law School graduate. Before law school, he served in the U.S. Army as a Spanish linguist. Follow @WLJReporter
