Criminal Defense Attorney in Wisconsin

If you face criminal charges in Wisconsin, the best investment you can make is to hire a highly skilled criminal defense attorney. Your freedom and your future are on the line. Individuals who are convicted may be incarcerated in prison or jail, placed on probation, fined or a combination of both. There are collateral consequences for criminal convictions including loss of 2nd amendment, right to possess firearm, sex offender registration, loss of drivers privilege, and other consequences.

Criminal law crimes include both misdemeanors and felonies. Misdemeanors are usually less severe criminal offenses such as theft, disorderly conduct, and are punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for up to one year and a fine. Felonies are more serious criminal offenses such as murder, sexual assault, delivery of drugs and are usually punishable by at least one year in prison and severe fines.

Pursuing Alternatives to a Conviction

Many people facing criminal charges may be able to avoid conviction, jail/prison time and a criminal record through a deferred prosecution. In this type of disposition, the charge can be eventually dismissed, provided that you stay out of trouble and comply with the other terms of the program.

Not everyone is eligible for these deferred outcomes. If you are eligible and would like this result, we will work with the prosecutor and the court to obtain it for you.
