About John A Birdsall

Attorney Biography

In more than 24 years of practice, John Birdsall has earned a reputation as one of Milwaukee and Wisconsin's most trusted criminal defense lawyers. A veteran of more than 230 jury trials, mostly serious felonies, he has an acquittal rate three times the Wisconsin average.

John is a current member of the board of directors and past President of the Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and is also on the board of directors and past Chairman of the Criminal Law Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin. He served as a member of the Wisconsin "Sentencing Commission," which was charged with the development of sentencing guidelines for state judges.

He holds an "AV" rating (the highest available) in Martindale-Hubbel's Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.

His practice is focused exclusively on the defense of the wrongly accused. He has written and lectured broadly on criminal law topics such as warrantless searches, coerced confessions, prison overcrowding, and truth-in-sentencing.

He earned a Bachelor of Arts with Honors from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1986 and a Juris Doctor from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1989 where he was named to the Dean's List. He was formerly associated with Borgelt, Powell, Peterson & Frauen as well as Gonzalez, Saggio, Birdsall & Harlan in Milwaukee
