Mark Frankel

Mediator / Arbitrator & Reserve Judge

Mark Frankel

Mark Frankel would be Wisconsin's most creative judge for the next 20 years. His strong reputation came from the many firsts he made in the courtroom and how different cases were settled. At the time, judicial mediation was not very common or well-known in Wisconsin. However, the mark was known for giving litigants the chance to resolve more minor disputes without going to court or spending a lot of money on it. This made it possible for people who wanted to keep their money and peace of mind to settle with each other informally, without their business being made public.

Mark Frankel, in particular, made sentencing guidelines for all operating under the influence cases in Wisconsin. This was done after a thorough review of the laws showed that it was unfair and unjust to punish everyone the same way since some drunk driving was more severe than others.
