State of Wisconsin v. SJ
The client was charged with Repeated 1st Degree Sexual Assault of a child, an extremely serious felony. Over the course of 18 months, Kirk filed motions which developed the defense against the charges in a way that made it impossible for the prosecutor to proceed.
State v. HW
The arresting officer claimed that HW "failed" three field sobriety tests. An initial review of the police reports seemed to support this notion. However, Kirk filed a motion to suppress based upon the results of an administrative suspension hearing which was held prior to the case going to Circuit Court. Kirk knew from the testimony at the suspension hearing that the officer was not up to snuff.
On Nov. 4, 2013, Attorney John A. Birdsall traveled to Washington D.C. to be admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. Admittance to the bar of the United States Supreme Court is a great honor for any lawyer. John is particularly proud of this accomplishment. While it is rare for a case to reach the United States Supreme Court, this honor is a validation of John's experience and dedication which has made him one of Wisconsin's best criminal defense lawyers. In order to receive this honor, a current member of the Supreme Court Bar must file a motion of nomination and then that motion must be granted by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
