Attorney Paul Ksicinski

About Me

A criminal prosecution requires a strong response, and it is not a road that you should travel alone. When it seems as though the weight of the world is on your shoulders, I am honored to be the one of the best criminal defense lawyers to stand with you. Wisconsin Justice David T. Prosser referred to Paul Ksicinski's lawyering as “excellent” and “skillful.” Paul Ksicinski is particularly skilled in instituting complex litigation such as the first challenge to race based traffic stops in Milwaukee County; the first challenge to Milwaukee County In-Custody Intake procedure of shackling all criminal defendants; exposed racial origins of felon disenfranchisement by filing first Wisconsin Voter’s Right Act challenge to felon disenfranchisement and has challenged Wisconsin’s same sex marriage ban. Paul Ksicinski's legal practice has been highlighted by the televising of one of his homicide trials on TRU TV. Learn more at
