Paul Ksicinski was awarded the Wisconsin Public Defender Performance Recognition Award in recognition of his consistent outstanding performance in client advocacy. The Public Defender Office recognized him for his persistence, leadership and attention to detail with a Certificate of Appreciation for helping the office to be better equipped to argue issues in the area of identity, expert witnesses, and motions in limine.

Evidence professor Stephen P. Hurley of the University of Wisconsin–Madison Law School has adapted Paul Ksicinski’s other acts outline for his lectures. A post written by Paul Ksicinski was recently featured on Professor Berman's Sentencing Law and Policy Blog. The piece was centered on the topic of Apprendi's limitation on using a juvenile conviction as a predicate offense for a prosecution in the adult system. Justice David T. Prosser praised Paul Ksicinski's legal abilities, calling them "excellent" and "skillful." His expert cross-examination skills have been praised by the 1st District Court of Appeals.

Paul Ksicinski is an expert litigator, and he filed the first case challenging racial profiling in traffic stops in Milwaukee County. He was the first to question the practice of shackling all criminal offenders during intake at the Milwaukee County Jail. He has challenged the constitutionality of Wisconsin's same-sex marriage law and was the first to file a challenge under the Wisconsin Voter's Right Act, revealing the racial basis of felon disenfranchisement.

Both the broadcasting of one of Paul Ksicinski's homicide trials on TRU TV and the acquittal of homicide and sexual assault charges against a man who was mentally handicapped have brought attention to the attorney's practice in recent years.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
