justice-statueMADISON — Gov. Tony Evers announced Tuesday that he is appointing Tricia Walker to the Fond du Lac County Circuit Court. The appointment fills a vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Gary R. Sharpe.

tony-evers“Tricia Walker has dedicated her career to respecting the rule of law, treating everyone fairly, and upholding constitutional rights,” said Gov. Evers. “She is deeply engaged in and committed to her community, and will serve the folks in Fond du Lac County well.” 

Walker has her own law firm where she represents clients in a wide variety of matters, including criminal defense, family law, guardianships, evictions, and estate planning. She is a board member for Campbellsport Theater Board and Mahala’s Hope, a substance use recovery facility. She is a past board member for the Campbellsport Library. Walker also donates her time as a volunteer attorney with the Fond du Lac Pro Se Legal Clinic, which provides legal advice to unrepresented people in family law disputes.

“I am pleased to hear Governor Evers has appointed Attorney Tricia Walker to replace me as judge in Fond du Lac County Circuit Court Branch IV. I believe Tricia Walker will be an excellent Judge,” said Judge Sharpe. “She has appeared before me countless times and I am consistently impressed with her preparation, presentation, and underlying knowledge. She has an excellent sense of fairness and grasp of the law. She will bring uncompromising ethics and a judicial demeanor to the position. Branch IV is left in good hands.”

“I am honored that Governor Evers has chosen me to serve Fond du Lac County as a circuit court judge,” said Walker. “I am profoundly aware that judges can permanently affect the direction of people’s lives and families. As a result, I am committed to serving as a fair and conscientious judge. I look forward to serving Fond du Lac County.”

Walker is a graduate of Marquette Law School and the University of Wisconsin – Platteville and will be the third Asian-American to ever serve as a state court judge in Wisconsin.
