Were You Charged with a Felony?
A felony is the most serious type of crime, but there are varying degrees of severity. In Wisconsin, the most serious felonies are Class A felonies. These offenses include first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree sexual assault of a child younger than 13, and other serious allegations. There are also much less serious felonies that can still be penalized with years in prison.
When you’re facing any felony charge, it’s essential to have legal counsel you can trust on your side. We at West & Dunn cultivate such trust with our clients through personalized representation. This means we invest time in making sure we understand the details of your legal situation and carefully map out a legal strategy that can optimize the potential outcomes.
Defending Clients Accused of DUI/OWI
Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) laws in Wisconsin are similar to Driving Under the Influence (DUI) laws in other states.
The legal blood alcohol concentration limit for an adult 21 years old and older is 0.08% and 0% for a younger person. If you are accused of exceeding these limits, you can face jail time, steep fines, and a lengthy or even permanent loss of your driving privileges. With dedicated legal support, however, you can minimize or even avoid such penalties.
We Can Defend Against Drug Possession Charges
Drug crimes are some of the most severely penalized offenses in Wisconsin with many being felonies. First-time offenders might get lighter sentences in the event of a conviction, but they’re still likely to face punishing fines and lengthy jail time. If you’re on your third strike for a drug possession charge, you may even be facing life imprisonment.
We at West & Dunn take all of our clients’ cases seriously, responding to their charges with aggressive and proactive legal defense strategies. If you are facing charges for a drug-related crime such as possession, you want someone firm and resolute on your team, like one of our Manitowoc criminal defense lawyers.
