Madison, WI – Attorney Diane Schlipper officially announced that she is running for Judge in Dane  County Circuit Court Branch 3, which is an open seat due to an upcoming retirement.  

Diane grew up in a small town in the midwest and was the first person in her family to graduate from  college. Before she became an attorney, Diane was a social worker for 10 years, serving children and  families impacted by addiction, trauma and mental health issues. She graduated from the University of  Wisconsin Law School and has over 10 years of experience as a trial attorney. 

Among professionals in the criminal justice system, she has earned the reputation as being someone  who is compassionate and dedicated to protecting crime victims, while also safeguarding the rights of  defendants. She has prosecuted a wide range of cases, including human trafficking, child exploitation,  

and homicide. Whether Diane is working with survivor advocacy groups or those supporting reentry  initiatives, she remains dedicated to the mission of public service and the goal of achieving a just  outcome for the community as a whole. 

When not in the courtroom, Diane gives back to her community by volunteering and participating in  charity events. She and her husband have completed numerous Ironman competitions and enjoy  competitive cycling. Given Diane’s love of the outdoors, she values our state’s natural resources and  supports environmental protection initiatives so future generations can enjoy all that makes Wisconsin  an amazing place to live. 

The General Election is April 5, 2022, and if there are more than two candidates for Branch 3, a primary  election will be held February 15, 2022. For more information about Diane, please go to her campaign  website:
