New Clerk of District Court

Monday, May 11, 2020

On May 11, 2020, Gina Colletti was sworn in as the clerk of court for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, succeeding Stephen C. Dries after he was selected to serve as a magistrate judge for the district. Gina graduated from Marquette University with a degree in psychology, and holds a paralegal certification from Milwaukee Area Technical College. She began her career in the law by serving as a legal assistant and paralegal for Horizons Law Group in Brookfield, Wisconsin. She spent almost five years as a trustee assistant and paralegal to then-bankruptcy lawyer and Chapter 7 trustee (now Waukesha County Circuit Court judge) Michael P. Maxwell. When Judge Maxwell took the bench, Gina joined O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman, Dejong and Laing, working there as a legal assistant from 2015 to 2017. She gained federal experience when she worked as a case administrator for United States District Court Judge Lynn Adelman from March 2017 to March 2018. She left that position when she was elected clerk of the circuit court for Waukesha County, where she served for over two years before returning to the district court as its new clerk. While Gina returns to the federal court at a challenging time, she brings a wealth of knowledge, ideas and experience. The court looks forward to the future under Clerk Colletti’s leadership.
