Charged with a Serious Traffic Crime?
Depending on the nature and severity of the offense, traffic crimes can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies in Wisconsin. If convicted, you could lose the right to drive and face serious fines and jail time.
Our Wisconsin criminal defense attorneys can represent you in cases involving many types of criminal traffic offenses, including:
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Vehicular homicide
- Reckless driving
- Driving on a suspended or revoked license
Understanding Wisconsin's DUI Laws
“Driving under the influence” is a particularly serious offense that is aggressively prosecuted in Wisconsin. You can be charged with DUI if your driving ability is impaired by a controlled substance and/or your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) meets or exceeds 0.08%.
Even if your BAC is below the legal limit, a law enforcement officer can still arrest you for DUI if they determine your driving has been compromised by drugs or alcohol.
Let Us Fight Your Wisconsin DUI Charges
A first-time offender could face hundreds of dollars of fines, a nine-month license revocation, and drug and alcohol counseling, if convicted. Repeat offenders will face even stiffer penalties, including potentially years of prison time.
Our team knows how to handle DUI cases and can provide you with the representation you need when facing these charges. We are ready to go to trial and will explore every possible legal strategy that can help secure a favorable outcome.
