MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers announced the appointment of Israel Ramón as the new Milwaukee County Register of Deeds, replacing John La Fave who resigned effective April 12th.

“Israel Ramón is the kind of principled, organized, and thoughtful leader needed to run the Milwaukee County Register of Deeds Office,” Governor Evers said. “With his deep ties to the community and decades of service in the private sector, often serving some of the most vulnerable populations, I am confident Israel will be an exemplary public servant and is the best candidate to lead the Register’s office.”

Israel Ramón is a litigation attorney with 25 years of experience practicing in Wisconsin State Courts. He is a Partner and Shareholder in Ramón & Medrano S.C. and a supplemental court commissioner for Milwaukee County Circuit Court. In his free time, Ramón volunteers as a consultant for the Mexican Consulate in Chicago, is a pro bono lawyer for the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, established the Voces de la Frontera’s Free Legal Clinic, and has previously served on the executive boards of the Milwaukee LGBT Center and the Spanish Center of Milwaukee.
