OWI Defense

A cultural stigma has become associated with drunk driving that was not present in our society even a decade ago. Public perception categorizes people charged with drunk driving as criminals, even before they have been convicted of any crime. Being arrested for drunk driving, driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), operating while intoxicated (OWI), or operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (OMVWI) can be an unsettling proposition, to say the least. A drunk driving conviction in Wisconsin carries with it heavy penalties, including:

  • A permanent criminal / traffic record
  • Suspension or loss of license
  • Increased insurance rates
  • Community service
  • Possible jail or prison time
  • Alcohol assessment and treatment
  • Probation
  • Vehicle immobilization or forfeiture
  • Serious fines
  • Possible job loss

If you have been arrested or accused of drunk driving, DUI, DWI, OWI, OMVWI, vehicular homicide, or any other alcohol-related criminal offense, you are probably frightened, confused, and concerned about your future and that of your family. The selection of an experienced attorney is the first step towards regaining control of your life.
