Operating While Under the Influence of Alcohol or Intoxicants,
also know as OWI, DUI, DWI, Operating While Intoxicated
A drunk-driving charge can happen to anyone. You can be charged with drunk-driving even if you were NOT drunk.
Most people charged with drunk-driving are normal, hardworking citizens who are worried about their reputation, how they are going to get around and keep their license, and certainly upset about the possibility of jail time.
We are sympathetic to your concerns and understand how circumstances sometimes put people in the wrong place at the wrong time. We know your reputation, your job, and your freedom may be at stake and we can help.
It is important that you hire an attorney as early as possible to advise you on what you could be doing from "DAY ONE" to start building your OWI defense and getting you in position for the best possible outcome in your case. This may include preserving vital evidence, substituting against particular judges or filing motions to suppress evidence if the police stepped over the line. Or this may include getting you into the best position for sentencing by exploring early treatment options and advising you on how to deal with the Department of Transportation and your license to drive.
Make sure that you have an experienced drunk driving attorney to advise you and protect your rights before you go to court.
In Wisconsin, the only time you can have a say in which judge hears your case is BEFORE you enter a plea. This is an important right that you lose if you don't use it - often at the very first court appearance.
Our OWI team investigate every fact about your drunk driving arrest to determine whether the police had the right to stop you, whether there was enough evidence to arrest you and whether the scientific evidence they want to use against you will stand up in court.
