Frequently Asked Questions
Can a possession of a controlled substance charge be dismissed?

Having a charge dismissed can be highly challenging. However, with the help of a skilled attorney, you may be able to have your charge dismissed. Some law enforcement officers are often overzealous and charge defendants with possession of a controlled substance simply because it was near where they were sitting in a vehicle. However, a knowledgeable attorney may be able to review the evidence and demonstrate the charge should not have been brought in the first place. Any drug charge is a serious matter that requires the help of an attorney who can fight to protect your rights.

Should I plead guilty to a DUI/OWI charge just to get it over with quickly?

Many individuals consider just pleading guilty to a DUI/OWI with the thought of getting it over quickly. However, those charged with DUI/OWI often do not realize that if convicted, the charge can stay on their criminal record for the rest of life. Additionally, 6 points will be assessed on the individual’s driving record. Finally, the defendant may also be required to install an ignition lock device on their vehicle. Therefore, it is in your best interests to hire a skilled lawyer who can work with the prosecution to obtain a possible plea deal.

What are the criminal penalties for possessing child pornography?

Wisconsin law takes a tough stance on individuals accused of possessing, sharing, or downloading child pornography online. If convicted, the defendant will face negative life-altering consequences. The criminal penalties for possessing child pornography include up to 25 years in prison, having to register as a sex offender, a fine of up to $100,000, and being restricted as to where they can work and live. However, with the help of a well-qualified attorney who can build a strong defense on your behalf, you may be able to avoid a conviction.

Can I be forced to leave my home if I have been arrested for domestic violence?

Individuals arrested for domestic violence may find themselves looking for another place to stay. If the judge in the case determines that you are a threat to the victim or your family, they may issue a restraining order that prohibits you from entering the home. The restraining order may also require you to only have supervised visitation with your children and stay a certain distance from the victim. Restraining orders may be temporary or last longer, depending on the situation.

Do I need to hire a lawyer for a misdemeanor charge?

Many individuals mistakenly believe they do not need to hire a lawyer after being charged with a misdemeanor. However, although no law states you must obtain legal representation if charged with a criminal offense such as a misdemeanor, it is in your best interests to do so. Even though a misdemeanor is not as serious as a felony, it still can remain on your criminal record for life. In addition, any sort of criminal record can make it challenging to find employment, obtain housing, or serve in the military.

Do individuals have to serve jail time for their first DUI/OWI?

One of many clients' first questions is whether they face potential jail time when convicted of their first DUI/OWI. Typically, in most instances, the answer is no unless extenuating circumstances may include having a child in the car under the age of 16 or causing an accident or an injury. However, hiring an experienced attorney may help you have the charges dismissed or reduced and avoid a conviction.

What is the statute of limitations to file a personal injury claim in Wisconsin?

Under Wisconsin law, personal injury victims have up to three years from the date the accident occurred to file a claim. However, if you wait and file a claim after the deadline has passed, then, in all likelihood, the case will be thrown out, and you will lose your ability to recover damages. However, there are certain situations where the statute of limitations may be extended, including when the injury victim is a minor or the injury was not reasonably discovered until a later date.

Can the police enter my home without a search warrant?

In most cases, police cannot enter your home without a search warrant unless mitigating circumstances exist. However, often law enforcement officers will try to convince you to allow them to come in and perform a search. They may also tell you that if you have nothing to hide, there should be no reason not to allow them to enter. Nevertheless, it is in your best interests not to allow law enforcement to enter your home without a valid search warrant. The Fourth Amendment protects your right against unreasonable search and seizure.
