MADISON – Gov. Evers announced today that he is appointing Elizabeth Rohl to the Pierce County Circuit Court. Rohl will fill a vacancy created by the resignation of Judge Joseph Boles.
“Elizabeth Rohl will be a tremendous asset to Pierce County on the bench. She brings a wide range of experience with her and, having grown up in River Falls, she knows the community well,” said Gov. Evers.
Rohl, who lives in River Falls, is an assistant corporation counsel for St. Croix County, where she represents the county in court and performs a variety of transactional work. In this role, she represents the county in involuntary mental commitments, termination of parental rights cases, child support enforcement matters, and public records compliance. Rohl previously was an assistant district attorney and worked in private practice.
“I am extremely pleased that Elizabeth Rohl has been appointed by Gov. Evers to succeed me as Pierce County Circuit Judge,” said Judge Boles. “I am certain that she will serve the citizens of Pierce County with a high degree of dignity, respect for the rule of law, and respect for each and every individual who appears in her court. Elizabeth Rohl is an outstanding choice to serve as circuit judge.”
“I am honored and grateful that Gov. Evers has selected me to fill Judge Boles seat,” said Rohl. “Judge Boles is irreplaceable, but I am looking forward to serving the people of Pierce County and doing my best to live up to that legacy. I am committed to upholding a judicial system that is fair and unbiased and will strive to make a positive impact on our community.”
Rohl graduated from River Falls High School. She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and her law degree from Michigan State University College of Law.
