Mary E. Triggiano is the Director of the Andrew Center for Restorative Justice and Adjunct Professor of Law at Marquette University Law School. She teaches Restorative Justice and the Restorative Justice Clinical Program.

Prior to joining Marquette University Law School, she was the Chief Judge for District 1 Circuit Court. Governor Jim Doyle appointed her to the bench in 2004. She was assigned first to the Children's Division from August 2004 to August 2009. It was there that she became interested in restorative justice, participating in Justice Janine Geske’s restorative justice circles at Green Bay Correctional Institution. She was next assigned to the Domestic Violence Court, later returning to Children’s Court where she led the Family Drug Treatment Court and created the Healthy Infant Court, the first of its kind in Wisconsin.

She was a Deputy Chief Judge for Chief Judge Maxine White for over four years until becoming Chief Judge in February 2020. As Chief Judge, she worked tirelessly with justice system partners to navigate and recover from the pandemic’s tremendous impact and its aftermath.

Prior to becoming a judge, she served as managing attorney for Legal Action of Wisconsin from 1994-2004. She also was an associate attorney in the litigation department at Reinhart Boerner from 1988 to 1994.

She is a long-time member and past president of the Association for Women Lawyers. She also is a member of the State Bar of Wisconsin, Milwaukee Bar Association, the Wisconsin Association of African American Lawyers and the National Council on Juvenile & Family Court Judges. During her tenure as a judge, she sat on a variety of committees and boards.
