The Milwaukee County Circuit Court is the largest circuit court in the state of Wisconsin. The court consists of 47 branches and has 22 court commissioners. There are nearly 150,000 case filings annually in the court. The court comprises the First Judicial District of the State of Wisconsin. The Chief Judge is Jeffrey Kremers, the Clerk of Circuit Court is John Barrett and the District Court Administrator is Bruce Harvey.

The work of the court is done in five separate divisions: felony, misdemeanor/traffic, civil (including probate and small claims) and family and children's. Judges rotate from one division to another every three to four years; about one-quarter of the judges rotate each year.[1]

Currently, 13 judges are assigned to the felony division, 8 to the misdemeanor division, 12 to the civil division, 6 to the family division and 8 to the children's division.[2]
