A Wisconsin Criminal Charge Can Ruin Your Life If You Let It!

Defend Your Rights And Freedom With a Top Criminal Defense Lawyer!

If you’ve been arrested, booked, and charged with a crime, you know what a traumatic, difficult and embarrassing thing it is to go through. You never imagined something like this could happen to you. But it’s happened, so you have to face up to and figure out what do do. But can you answer these three questions?

  1. How can I protect my legal rights against these charges?
  2. How do I know what attorney is the best person to defend me?
  3. What might happen to me if I’m convicted, and how will my life change?

These aren’t easy questions to answer, and I’m sure you never thought about a criminal legal defense until now. So it’s natural for you to be apprehensive and fearful about what is going to happen to you.

But I want you to know that I can help you. I’ve been a Wisconsin Criminal Defense Lawyer for over 10 years, and in that time I’ve helped hundreds of people just like you, who face a criminal charge in the Milwaukee, WI area, or anywhere in the state.

I am always up on the latest defense ideas, and current legal thinking. I’m always looking for any new technique or idea I can use to protect the rights of my clients.  Because there is no more important role in our justice system than keeping the system honest.

So I don’t want you to feel like there is nothing you can do to protect yourself and reduce or even eliminate the penalties you are facing. Working together, we can tackle this head on.

You see, I’ve found that even cases that seem hopeless can be won. My experience has taught me that good things can happen if you just keep fighting. An aggressive defense strategy can often yield unexpected wins, or opportunities to plead to significantly reduced charges. Even in cases where you are ready to plead guilty, I’ll fight for the smallest penalty I can get.

What’s The First Step In My Defense?

My defense strategy is to fight every element of the case against you. I will not allow the prosecution to get a conviction if they cannot definitively prove that a)  a crime was committed, and b) that you were the one who committed it.

The DA must establish that:

  • the search against you was entered into lawfully and properly according to police procedures
  • that the arrest procedure was proper and fair
  • that you were advised of your Miranda rights as required by the law
  • that your identification was fair and legal
  • that any chemical tests were properly conducted

I’ll also make sure all evidence and discovery is made available to the defense. Especially any evidence that the DA may have that suggests or proves that you may be innocent.

In truth, there are a tremendous number of legal motions or procedural arguments that a defense attorney may try, depending on the facts of the particular case. But only an experienced criminal defense lawyer will be familiar with many of the more specific and obscure arguments that may help your case.

That’s where I come in. I will use my experience, skill, and knowledge to do whatever it takes to get you every legal advantage to which the defense is entitled.

Now, I am willing to accept a plea if it’s a fair offer, and if it’s in your best interest to settle the case quickly. But since I have extensive Wisconsin jury trial experience, I’ll never let the DA push us into accepting a bad deal. Even when we don’t fight a case at trial, it’s always helpful in a negotiation for the prosecutor to realize we’re not afraid of a fight.

What Can You Do To Help Me?

You see, with my background and experience, I may be able to provide some unique defense options that some lawyers probably wouldn’t consider. Because I’m in Wisconsin Criminal Courts day in and day out, fighting & doing this kind of work. And I’m constantly in contact with the top criminal defense minds in the state in my different legal community leadership roles.

The lawyer down the street who handles a real estate closing one day, and a divorce the next day, simply can’t be knowledgeable about all the arcane details of a complex criminal defense strategy. That’s why you absolutely need an attorney who knows the criminal laws of Wisconsin backward and forward, which is only gained by defending criminal cases every day.

Specifically, here are just a few of the many defense tactics that could be helpful if your case:

  • Charges filed against you have to have been filed promptly, or the case against you could be prejudiced. Delays could mean you wouldn’t get a fair trial, which can be grounds for dismissal. 
  • Evidence against you must be available for independent analysis by the defense. If it isn’t provided, any such evidence should be excluded from the case.
  • In a jury case, the selection process can be very important. I’ll make sure we seat a fair and unbiased, impartial jury to deliberate your case.
  • If you need to testify in court on your own behalf, I’ll prepare you for what we need to communicate to the jury to make sure we get the facts presented in a way that helps your case. And I’ll prepare you for when the DA cross-examines you, so you’ll know what to expect, and be ready for when he may challenge your assertions.

In addition, I promise not just to vigorously defend your legal rights, but to help make the entire process at least a little easier for you. Facing criminal prosecution is difficult enough without feeling like you are in the dark the entire time. I’ll hope to put your mind at ease by explaining every step of the process beforehand and as it is happening.

I could say much more in general about how I defend Wisconsin criminal cases, but I think it’s much more helpful to understand the facts exactly as they apply to you. That’s why I offer an initial phone consultation to all my potential clients, and anyone who needs a little help in deciding what to do next.
