“In my 32 years of law enforcement service I have never seen a judicial candidate as well qualified as Laura Lau. With her 16 years on the bench she is the best qualified candidate in this election.  Her judicial philosophy is exactly what we need in Waukesha County and I am proud to support her.” Eric Severson

Waukesha County Sheriff

“I support Laura Lau as Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge because she brings with her an unparalleled level of experience based on her work in the courtroom as an attorney and Circuit Court Commissioner. She currently presides over cases in all the different court divisions and is very familiar with the issues that arise in these cases daily. Laura Lau will make a quick and smooth transition to Judge.” Sue Opper

Former Waukesha County GOP Chairman

“Waukesha County has a proud history of having a strong and dedicated judiciary. The community relies on law enforcement and the judiciary to keep the community safe. There is a clear choice between candidates for Circuit Court Judge on April 3rd. Laura Lau has been serving Waukesha County as a Circuit Court Commissioner for 16 years. She has the wisdom, intellect and experience we need to address the challenges our county continues to face.  She has dedicated her life to serving the people of Waukesha County and will be a credit to our community as our next Circuit Court Judge.” Margaret Farrow

Laura Lau has my vote for Circuit Judge. She possesses actual experience in our courts both as an attorney and a long time Commissioner. From her Commissioner rulings, I know she respects the Rule of Law, and understands our community values. Laura has a strong family background in Waukesha County. She is a scholar of the law, editing a publication that I refer to on a regular basis. She has earned our support!Michael Bohren

Wauksha County Circuit Court Judge

“What other candidate can provide approximately 16 years experience as a Circuit Court Commissioner in Waukesha County.  A vote for Laura will give us Waukesha county citizens the most skilled/caring Circuit Court Judge Ever.” Carol J. Lombardi

Former City of Waukesha Mayor 1998-2006

“I am endorsing Laura Lau for many good reasons: as a judicial court commissioner she already has 16 years’ experience of judicial decision making; she has a deep commitment to the Waukesha County community that goes far beyond the doors of the courthouse; and she has the temperament and legal knowledge that we expect of our judges.” Judge Ralph M. Ramirez

“Laura Lau es una persona de muestra comunidad muy competente, respetada y con mucha experiencia.  Tengo el honor de personalmente apoyar su candidature para Juez de Tribunal del Circuito.” Anselmo Villareal

“Qualified! Experienced! Dedicated! I have known Commissioner Lau for over twenty-five years.  As a practicing attorney I have appeared before her many times.  As a Court Commissioner, Laura exhibits strong legal skills, enthusiasm, energy and outstanding work ethic.  Just as important is Laura’s ability to get along with people.  She is polite, sincere and respectful of individuals.  She has common sense, the legal skills and good instincts that will serve her well as a circuit court judge.  It is my honor and privilege to endorse and support Laura Lau, the best qualified candidate for Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge of Waukesha County.” Arnold A. Moncada, Jr.

Former Waukesha County Sheriff

“Peace and order in society requires all levels of the Justice System to work in harmony with each other.  It demands individuals committed to serving others.  People with integrity and a value system that holds themselves accountable to doing the right thing even when it isn’t easy or personally beneficial to themselves.

Commissioner Laura Lau is one of those people.  With 16 years experience and over 20,000 hearings in the judicial system she has proven herself to be someone who can fairly and justly navigate the daily pressures of the court system.  Her experience gives her the credentials and credibility to be Circuit Court Judge.

This is why I endorse Commissioner Laura Lau for Circuit Court Judge.” Police Chief Tom Czarnecki

“Anyone concerned with the societal problems we face understand the need for…truth and justice…law and order.  A positive step is to elect judges who believe this is the course to follow…that’s why my vote for Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge is…Laura Lau.” Phil Lee

“I am endorsing Commissioner Laura Lau for the position of Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge and I urge others to support her for this important position in our courts. I have known Commissioner Lau for over twenty years, first when I was a practicing lawyer, then when I was a trial court judge and now as a Court of Appeals judge.

Commissioner Lau has always been well prepared and committed to the rule of law in her rulings and decisions. Over the last 16 years in her courtroom, Commissioner Lau has always been hard working, well prepared and respectful of all parties and their counsel that appear before her.  Her ethics and integrity are beyond reproach.  If elected to the bench on April 3, I know that her courtroom will be run efficiently, impartially and fairly.  Commissioner Lau has all of the qualities that will make a fine judge:  intelligence, common sense, integrity and honesty.  Waukesha County is lucky to have such a well-qualified candidate and I urge others to vote for her on April 3.”

Paul Reilly

Appeals Court Judge

“Laura Lau believes people should be accountable for their actions. I know this because as a Waukesha County Court Commissioner for 16 years she has been very consistent. That is a lot of proof right here where it counts. Someone who has seen how quickly the growth of Waukesha County has challenged our case loads and judicial needs.

Laura has the legal experience, capabilities and proven commitment to our community we all seek in a circuit court judge. Judges are an integral part of the stitching that holds our judicial process and community together. If they don’t take the time to understand the circumstances and nuances of the cases that come before them, it can have a negative effect to our county.

Laura has lived, worked, and dedicated herself to the betterment of our greater community. She knows our values and what we expect in impartially carrying out the rule of law. Please visit LauForJudge.com to see why Laura Lau has earned my vote on April 3.”

Paul Decker

Waukesha County Board Chair

“Commissioner Lau has lived in Waukesha County for her entire life and knows the interests of its citizens and has the demonstrated judicial toughness to make tough decisions which have and will keep our community safe.” Judge William Domina
