Fax: (608) 340-3070

With twenty-plus years in practice, Jesse Leichsenring has represented men and woman in contested divorce proceedings, custody/placement cases, guardianships, and protective services cases. In addition to Guardian ad Litem work across several counties, he has prosecuted/defended termination of parental rights cases for Adams County, and has done the same, in addition to CHIPS cases and mental commitments, for Sauk County.

Jesse attended Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa where he double majored in Political Science and German language. He spent the entirety of his junior year studying at the Fredrich Schiller Universität in Jena, Germany.

Upon graduating, Jesse spent the next three years at Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, graduating with an international law concentration before sitting for the Wisconsin Bar Exam. After 8 years with a small firm in Wisconsin Dells, Jesse formed his own firm, also in Wisconsin Dells. After a three-year stint in southern Louisiana (don’t do that), Jesse returned to Wisconsin in 2018.

In his own private practice, he dealt with family law, criminal, corporation formation and upkeep, landlord/tenant lawsuits, and Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcy proceedings, as well as estate planning and probate. He also served a four-year term as the Municipal Judge for the city of Wisconsin Dells. His vast experience enables him to develop out-of-the-box strategies to assist families in finding the best solutions and settlements for their individual situations. When needed, zealous representation and strong courtroom advocacy are hallmarks of his style in both Family and Criminal cases. In his spare time Jesse enjoys long distance biking through the Baraboo Bluffs, live sporting events, and evening concerts. He is happy to be back in Baraboo, the area he spent nearly 15 years of his 20 years in practice.
