Hi, I'm Marisabel
I am a respected immigration attorney and former Milwaukee Fire and Police Commissioner who was first elected to the Wisconsin Assembly in 2018 and I'm running for Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge.
I am very driven by equal justice and fair play. I believe when people appear before a judge they don’t care about their cases being labeled “civil” or “criminal.” They care about what they stand to lose – their home, their children, their safety, their freedom. I’m running for judge to ensure our judicial system treats people with respect, compassion, and impartiality so that people understand their rights and obligations in proceedings and get a fair shake. I hope I can count on your vote on April 2, 2024.

Hon. Pedro Colon
Wisconsin Court of Appeals Judge
"When judges win appointments or elections, our sole duty is to uphold the law, which means making unpopular decisions and resisting political trends. Marisabel Cabrera is an outstanding choice for judge, and will uphold the rule of law's strict standard and ensure impartiality prevails. Her background as a criminal defense attorney and expertise in immigration law has instilled within her a profound sense of empathy for her clients, and the diverse communities that make Milwaukee County great. Diversity and fair representation strengthen the bench and elevate Wisconsin justice, and Marisabel stands as a highly vetted and exceptional leader who can provide that much-needed representation."
Rep. Kalan Haywood
State Assembly Assistant Minority Leader
"Rep. Cabrera has been unwavering in her pursuit of justice in both the halls of the State Capitol building and from within our community. She's patient, respectful, and thoughtful when responding to both the public and colleagues and has advocated perspectives to issues not often represented. I am positive that her expertise and lived experience will be a great addition to the Milwaukee County Circuit Court. This is why I'm proud to endorse her candidacy."
Ald. Jose Perez
President of Milwaukee Common Council
"Marisabel Cabrera is a leader that is independent, analytical, and free of undue influence. She has been a champion for the Latino community and Milwaukee. The legitimacy of courts and the decisions they make rely on public trust, and judicial diversity helps improve that trust. Diversity also helps ensure that rulings reflect a wide variety of viewpoints, especially from perspectives and communities that have historically been at a disadvantage in our courts. Marisabel's background as an immigration lawyer would bring vital experience to the court. I have full confidence that Marisabel would make an excellent circuit court judge."
