Osseo lawyer named new Buffalo County DA

Madison (WQOW) – Governor Scott Walker appointed Thomas Bilski as the new Buffalo County District Attorney. Bilski will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Buffalo County DA Thomas Clark who was recently elected as judge.

"I am pleased to appoint Thomas Bilski to be the next district attorney in Buffalo County,” Walker said. “Bilski is a distinguished attorney and individual whose legal experience, professionalism, and commitment to justice give me confidence that he will serve the citizens of Buffalo County well.”

For the past 29 years, Thomas Bilski has been practicing law at his Osseo-based firm, Bilski & Associates, LLC. He focused on criminal defense law, representing clients in a vast array of felony and misdemeanor matters in the Buffalo County courthouse. Bilski also serves the citizens of Trempealeau County as a court commissioner.

Bilski previously served as president and vice-president of the Tri-County Bar Association. In addition to his legal experience, Bilski volunteered as a Mayo Trustee on the board of Osseo’s Mayo hospital and clinic.

Retiring Buffalo County district attorney and newly elected Judge Thomas Clark supported the appointment.

“Mr. Bilski’s skill set will prove to be a great asset to those involved in the Buffalo County criminal justice system. His excellent analytical skills will greatly assist law enforcement and the judiciary in investigation, charging and resolving complex criminal cases. His wide-ranging experience and knowledge base will be very important in his leadership role in the Buffalo County criminal justice system.”

Bilski earned his Juris Doctor degree from William Mitchell College of Law and his undergraduate degree from The University of Minnesota. He resides in Strum with his wife, Deborah. They have four adult children.
