Wisconsin Drunk Driving Defense Success Stories
- Village of (withheld) v. Wayne (last name with-held): Driving under the influence of THC (marijuana), Possession of THC, possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Wayne was arrested by the police of this small Wisconsin village (whose name we have withheld to protect Wayne's identity) for driving under the influence of marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Driving under the influence of marijuana carries the same penalties as OWI-alcohol, so it is a serious offense. We have the knowledge and training, however, to contest the laboratory analyses of a marijuana in a person's blood and Attorney Mishlove took that route in this case. After a great deal of research and discussion, the prosecutor agreed to drop the paraphernalia charge and reduce the DUI-drug charge to one of reckless driving . Wayne kept his driver's license.
- County of Milwaukee v. Craig (last name withheld): Milwaukee County. Craig was stopped by a Milwaukee County Deputy sheriff, who alleged that he was speeding and swerving on the freeway. The deputy did field sobriety tests and arrested Craig. Two breath samples were taken, both of which were .086. Attorney Stuckert tried the case to a jury, challenging the deputy’s conclusions and the breath tests results. Craig was found not guilty.
- State of Wisconsin v. Ronald (last name withheld): OWI 3rd offense, Kenosha County. This was a hard-fought case over a number of issues. Attorney Mishlove demanded that the state turn over all of the video evidence in the case, but some of the video was accidentally erased. That became a significant issue. The video from the squad car, however, was available. As sometimes happens, it became apparent that the police report and the squad video did not match. The alleged bad driving described by the officer was not visible on the video. Attornety Mishlove and Attorney Stuckert challenged the lawfulness of the stop. A hearing was held where the officer was cross-examined by Attorney Mishlove. Attorney Stuckert submitted written arguments. The court agreed that the officer did not have a lawful reason to stop Ronald. the case was dismissed.
- State of Wisconsin v. Richard (last name withheld): OWI 2nd offense, Ozaukee County. This was a case where our law firm was brought in as co-counsel with a prominent criminal defense firm. Prior to our involvement in the case, the matter had been to a jury trial, reversed on appeal, and had then gone to a second jury trial, that was also reversed on appeal. We were brought in to assist with the third trial. Attorney Mishlove advised that the theory of defense for the third trial should be a direct attack on the validity of the state’s blood test result (which was different from the previous “blood alcohol curve” defenses). Attorney Stuckert was co-counsel at the third jury trial. Facing a withering attack would promised to be a withering attack on a poorly done blood test, the state elected to drop the blood test and PAC charge altogether, relying only on the officer’s testimony. When the officer, however, was unable to remember key facts, his testimony was stricken. The court directed a verdict in favor of Richard. After six years of fighting, the case was dismissed.
- State of Wisconsin v. Gregory (last name withheld): OWI 3rd offense, Winnebago County. Gregory was involved in a single-car accident when his car slid off the road into a ditch. The driving conditions were especially poor due to the recent snowstorm that evening. After failing to get the car out of the ditch, and having no working cell phones with them, he and the two passengers decided to walk to the place where they planned to stay that evening. Gregory had a bottle whiskey with him and drank a good amount of it during the walk. Officers found Gregory and the two passengers quite drunk walking down a country road in the Town of Winneconnie. Via cross-examination of the State's lab analyst, Attorney Stuckert was able to show the jury how based on the amount of alcohol Gregory had consumed after the accident, it was very likely that Gregory was under the legal limit at the time the vehicle went into the ditch. A twelve-person jury found Gregory Not Guilty. We were able to save him from losing his job and having to endure a long jail sentence.
- State of Wisconsin v. Paul (last name withheld): 3rd offense OWI, Milwaukee County. Paul was stopped for speeding 56 mph in a 30 zone, on the 6th street viaduct near the Harley-Davidson Museum. The police officer noted glossy eyes, an odor of an alcoholic beverage and slurred speech. The officer claimed that Paul failed the three standardized field sobriety tests. Attorney Andrew Mishlove chilled the training and experience of the officer in drunk driving investigation. A hearing was held on whether the police investigation was sufficient to establish probable cause to arrest Paul. Through skillful cross-examination of the officer, Attorney Mishlove discredited his story. The judge found that there was no probable cause for the arrest. Paul was facing a year in jail; but instead, the case was dismissed.
- State of Wisconsin v. Naomi (last name withheld): OWI 3rd offense, Waukesha County. Naomi was stopped by the police and charged with a third offense DUI. She was facing up to one year imprisonment. Attorney Emily Jane Bell successfully argued that there was not enough evidence that Naomi had committed a specific traffic violation or that the officer had proper cause to believe she was driving while impaired. Ms. Bell won the day. The court suppressed the traffic stop and all evidence, and dismissed the case.
- State of Wisconsin v. Nicholas (last name withheld): 2nd offense, Ozaukee County. Nicholas was charged with a second offense DUI, Intoxicated Possession of a Firearm, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and was facing up to 16 months imprisonment. Nicholas was stopped for a traffic violation, taken into custody and questioned. As a result of the questioning, both Nicholas and his car were searched. A gun was found (although Nicholas had a permit). Nicholas was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. Attorney Emily Bell discovered that the officers falsified the order of their police reports, thus making it appear they had read Nicholas his rights, when they had not done so. Under questioning by Attorney Bell, the officers admitted the truth. The court found that the discovery of the gun was due to the unlawful interrogation of Nicolas; and the gun charge was dismissed. The court dismissed the baseless possession of paraphernalia charge because the drug paraphernalia was actually found on the driver of another car. The gun charge was dismissed. The drug paraphernalia charge was dismissed. The DUI is still pending.
- State of Wisconsin v. Joe (last name withheld): OWI 3rd offense, Walworth County. Joe was charged with a third offense drunk driving and was facing a year in jail. This particular county tends to be very hard on persons accused of drunk driving. We investigated and discovered that the second conviction on his record was defective because he did not have a lawyer, did not know his rights, and he was not properly advised of his rights. We had a hotly contested hearing on the matter and we won the issue. The state, however, appealed to the court of appeals! We won that, too. The case was dismissed and re-issued as a first offense charge. Joe is no longer facing a jail sentence and a criminal conviction. We're going to continue to fight the first offense charge, too!
- State v. Gregory (last name withheld): OWI 3rd offense, Winnebago County. In this case, Gregory was the designated driver with two passengers, who had an accident on the way home from a nightclub. Thankfully, no one was hurt. The roads were snow-covered and slippery; and, the weather was bad. Gregory and his passengers decided to walk to shelter. During the long walk, Gregory warmed himself with some bourbon. The police stopped them. Gregory was arrested and faced a long jail sentence. Lauren Stuckert took the case to a jury trial and Gregory was found not guilty.
- State of Wisconsin v. David (last name withheld): 2nd offense driving under the influence of drugs (ambien) , Waukesha County. David was prescribed this medication Ambien by his doctor. One of its side-effects is somnambulism; that is, doing things unconsciously but appearing to be awake, such as sleepwalking or sleep driving. David was sleep driving and hit a tree. This criminal case was reduced to a non-criminal, non-OWI traffic offense of reckless driving.
- State of Wisconsin v. Joseph (last name withheld): Walworth County, 3rd offense charge. Joe was arrested for a third offense DUI and had a blood test result of .282. Facing a year in jail, it seemed like he was going to do a long stretch in custody. We went back into his prior records and discovered that, in one of the cases, the court did not follow the proper procedure when Joe did not have an attorney. A hearing was held and we won. The state appealed to the court of appeals. We won the appeal. Joe’s charge is now reduced to a civil, first offense traffic ticket. He is facing no jail time.
- Franklin v. Ven (last name withheld): Ven was involved in a rollover accident, and was found outside of his vehicle, drinking a beer. His breath test result was .27. We won the municipal court trial because the city had difficulty proving the identity of Ven as the driver of the vehicle. The city appealed and demanded a new trial at the circuit court level. We demanded a trial by jury. On the jury trial date, the city was unable to produce witnesses who saw Ven actually driving. The case was amended to a non-alcohol related reckless driving ticket.
- State of Wisconsin v. Rodney (last name withheld): 3rd offense. Rodney was charged with a third offense drunk driving with alleged prior offenses in 1991 and 1999. At Mishlove and Stuckert Attorneys at Law, we always investigate the validity of alleged prior offenses. In this case, even though the DOT records indicated a 1999 conviction in another state, we sought and obtained the original records from the other state. These records indicated that the case was dismissed. The 1999 allegation was dropped. As the 1991 allegation was too old to enhance the present case (10 year lookback for a second offense, lifetime lookback for a third offense), the charge was reduced from a third offense DUI to a non-criminal 1st offense DUI. Rodney avoided a jail sentence.
- State v. Ryan (last name withheld): 6th offense OWI-with marijuana, Door County. This was a difficult and complex case tried by Lauren Stuckert. Ms. Stuckert successfully challenged the method by which blood is tested for the presence of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. There jury returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY. Ryan appeared to be on his way to prison. Instead, he went home.
- State of Wisconsin v. Joseph (last name withheld): Joe was accused of 3rd offense DUI/OWI. The prior convictions were alleged to have occurred in 1993 and 1999. We obtained all of the court records of the 1999 case and discovered that there was absolutely no record that Joe (who was not represented by an attorney) had ever waived his right to counsel. We successfully challenged the legitimacy of the 1999 case. The court ruled that it cannot be used. Since the 1993 case is so old, it cannot be used either. Instead of a 3rd offense and a year in jail, Joe will face only a 1st offense with no jail.
- Village of Little Chute v. John (last name withheld): This case was a originally heard in the municipal court, where the result was a conviction on an OWI and a refusal. We demanded new trials on both charges in circuit court. The matter was tried by Attorney Stuckert to a jury while the refusal was tried simultaneously to the court. Result: Not Guilty of the OWI by jury verdict. Not Guilty of the refusal.
- City of Franklin v. Ven (last name withheld): This OWI/ PAC case was tried to the municipal court by Attorney Mishlove. The police had not taken sufficient steps to identify the person actually arrested as the named defendant. Result: Not Guilty of OWI/PAC.
- State of Wisconsin v. Dal (last name withheld): Criminal reckless driving causing bodily harm. Dal was facing a criminal conviction and jail sentence for allegedly grabbing and jerking the steering wheel of a car in which she was a passenger, causing a serious accident. We fought the case on many grounds. Ultimately the charge was reduced to a non-criminal ticket. Dal avoided a criminal record and a jail sentence.
- State of Wisconsin v. Paul (last name withheld): 3rd offense charge, Waupaca County. Paul was facing a criminal conviction, a long jail sentence, and a long revocation. We fought the case, challenging the legitimacy of an alleged prior conviction. The charge was reduced to a non-criminal first offense DUI. Paul avoided a criminal conviction and a jail sentence. The revocation was reduced.
- State of Wisconsin v. Douglas (last name withheld): 2d offense charge. This case was dismissed because the prosecution failed to preserve critical evidence. Douglas avoided a criminal conviction, revocation and jail sentence.
- State of Wisconsin v. Mark (last name withheld): Criminal OWI with a minor in the vehicle. This case was reduced to a non-criminal charge. Mark avoided a long jail sentence.
- State of Wisconsin v. Sara (last name withheld): Door County 3rd offense. Sara was facing a driver's license revocation and a long jail sentence. We fought the case, arguing that the police officer did not have a legal basis to pull Sara over. The case was dismissed.
- State of Wisconsin v. Jeffrey (last name withheld): Marathon County 5th offense. In this felony case, Jeffrey was facing a prison sentence that would deprive him of his freedom and career. We challenged the legitimacy of one of the prior convictions, on the grounds that Jeffrey was denied his right to an attorney in the prior case. The charge was reduced to a 4th offense misdemeanor and Jeffrey avoided prison.
- Bayside v. Im (last name withheld): This case was fought on the basis of problems with the chemical test. The charge was reduced to a non-DUI offense. The client's license was saved.
- Kenosha County v. Keith (last name withheld): This case was fought all the way to a jury trial in the circuit court. Attorney Stuckert obtained a verdict of Not Guilty.
- State of Wisconsin v. Pavittar (last name withheld): Milwaukee County, 4th offense. This gentleman was found quite drunk seated in the driver's seat of his car. A citizen witness had reported that the car was driving erratically. A police lieutenant stated that he saw Pav driving the car. Police dispatch records, however, indicated that the lieutenant arrived at the scene five minutes after the car was parked. Other witnesses reported a different driver. Attorney Mishlove tried the case to a jury and Pav was found Not Guilty. We saved him from a long jail sentence and irreparable damage to his family.
- Wauwatosa v. Ajay (last name withheld): Milwaukee County, 1st offense. In this case, a citizen witness called the police to report that the Ajay was driving erratically. The police located Ajay in his garage. We argued that the police entered the private garage unlawfully, without a warrant. The case was reduced to a non-drunk driving charge.
- Pleasant Prairie v. Kelly (last name withheld): Kenosha County, Kelly was an Illinois driver facing a lifetime Illinois license revocation (as Illinois drivers are treated unfairly by that state). The police accused him of weaving, failing field tests and having a breath test result of .12. The police surveillance video, however, showed him appearing normal. More importantly, the video showed that he had gum in his mouth just prior to the breath test and that he was talking on a cell phone while the breath machine was operating. The case was reduced to a non-drunk driving charge.
- Oak Creek v. Gregory (last name withheld): Milwaukee County, 1st offense. Greg was found by the police in his car, which he had driven into a ditch. According to the police, he failed field sobriety tests and had a breath test result over the legal limit. We went to a court trial in the municipal court and lost. Attorney Mishlove objected, however, because the trial was at night and the court building was locked. On appeal, the court held that Greg was denied his right to a trial that was public. The case was dismissed.
- State of Wisconsin v. Keith (last name withheld): Kenosha County, 1st offense, CDL holder. Keith was a truckdriver whose career was at stake in this case. According to the police, he was weaving on the highway, failed his field sobriety tests and had a .12 breath test result. We tried the case to a jury and Keith was found Not Guilty. His career was saved.
- State of Wisconsin v. Dale (last name withheld): Vilas County, 3rd offense OWI charge. Dale drives for a living, as a salesman. A conviction in this case would have resulted in a loss of his career. We set the matter for a jury trial and appeared in court ready to proceed. On the morning of trial the case was reduced to a non-drunk driving charge. Dale's driver's license and career were saved.
- State of Wisconsin v. Daniel (last name withheld): Court of Appeals, District II: This case from Racine County is also mentioned below. The Court of Appeals affirmed the decision of the trial court. Case dismissed.
- State of Wisconsin v. William (last name withheld): Brown County. ,2nd offense OWI charge. William was facing a lifetime revocation of his Illinois license and a jail sentence. The state, however, lost critical video evidence. The case was dismissed.
- State of Wisconsin v. Patricia (last name withheld): Washington County. ,3rd offense OWI charge. Pat lost control of her car and ran into a ditch because she was adjusting her radio. A citizen reported that she was intoxicated. The deputy reported that she had an odor of intoxicants and that she failed field sobriety tests. A preliminary breath test and a blood test were over the limit. We tried the case to a jury, and Pat was found Not Guilty.
- State of Wisconsin v. Alfredo (last name withheld): Milwaukee County. 3rd offense OWI charge. Alfredo was facing a long jail sentence and driver's license revocation. He was found asleep behind the wheel of his running car, and charged with OWI, even though someone else was the driver. We tried the case to a jury and Alfredo was found Not Guilty.
- Town of Brookfield v. Thomas (last name withheld): Waukesha County. Thomas was an Illinois driver facing a one-year to life Illinois license revocation if he was convicted of this offense. The police testified that he was driving recklessly, almost caused an accident, appeared drunk and failed field sobriety tests. Because he did not consent to a breath test, there was no test result. The video recording of the incident was not consistent with the police testimony. We tried the case to a jury, and Thomas was found Not Guilty.
- State of Wisconsin v. Jason (last name withheld): Winnebago County, Wisconsin 4th Offense OWI Charge: Jason used his truck to shove and disable the car of a dangerously drunk driver. Jason and the other driver were both charged with an OWI. We argued that his actions were justified in order to prevent a real danger of serious injury to other people. We tried the case to a jury, and Jason was found Not Guilty.
- County of Milwaukee v. James (last name withheld): This gentleman was an Illinois driver, facing a lifetime revocation of his Illinois driver's license if he was convicted in Wisconsin. It was a hard-fought case. When it finally came to trial, the prosecution could not proceed. The case was dismissed.
- Butler v. Levarn (last Name withheld): This case was hard-fought and actually went to trial several times. At one point a conviction was reversed by the court of appeals. At the final trial, the prosecution failed to prove that the blood was properly drawn from the defendant and transported to the laboratory. The charge was reduced to a non-DUI charge.
- Oak Creek v. Christopher (last name withheld): Christopher was a gentleman from out-of-state with a good job that required extensive traveling. An alcohol-related driving conviction would have ruined his career. Christopher was reported to the police by a citizen witness. The witness reported that he was an intoxicated driver in the drive-through of a fast-food restaurant. He was located and arrested by the police in the parking lot of the restaurant. The citizen witness proved to be an unreliable witness. The charge was reduced to a non- DUI charge, with no driver's license revocation. Christopher's career was saved.
- State of Wisconsin v. Bruce (last name withheld): Walworth County, Wisconsin. While being represented by a different lawyer, Bruce pled guilty to a felony fifth offense drunk driving in 2004. He served 21 months in prison and was on parole (now called extended supervision). When he was arrested again in 2009, he called Attorney Mishlove. Because of the recent arrest, Bruce, was ordered to serve another 15 months in prison on the old, 2004, felony charge. Attorney Mishlove successfully argued that the 2004 case should really have been a fourth rather than a fifth offense, so he had already done more than the maximum sentence. Bruce's charge was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor and he was immediately released from prison.
- State of Wisconsin v. Paul (last name withheld): Winnebago County third offense charge. Paul was a 45 year old truck driver facing a third offense drunk driving charge. His career was on the line (not to mention a long jail sentence). Paul was found passed out behind the wheel of his running vehicle at a truck stop. Attorney Mishlove tried the case to a jury and Paul was found Not Guilty.
- State of Wisconsin v. Gene (last name withheld): Walworth County third offense charge. Gene was charged in Walworth County, Wisconsin with third offense drunken driving. We were convinced that it should have been charged as a first offense. The judge, however, didn't see it that way and Gene was facing up to one year in jail. We were very confident that we could win an appeal; but, it turned out that an appeal was unnecessary. We tried the case to a jury, and Gene was found Not Guilty.
- City of South Milwaukee v. Justin (last name withheld): Justin was arrested by the City of South Milwaukee police. He declined to give a breath sample and was also charged with refusal to submit to the test. We successfully argued that Justin was never properly advised of his rights regarding the chemical test, so he did not legally refuse the test. Both the refusal and the drunken driving were dismissed.
- State of Wisconsin v. Daniel (last name withheld): Racine County circuit court, third offense OWI charge. Daniel was arrested in 2006 for this case. The matter was delayed time after time, so that the state could provide an undamaged copy of the arrest video. Eventually the judge dismissed the case, but the court of appeals reinstated the matter. Recently, there was a series of hearings and arguments about why the video was not properly produced. Surprisingly, it was discovered that the state had an undamaged copy all along. Case dismissed.
- State of Wisconsin v. Scott (last name withheld): Scott was arrested after crashing his car into a neighbor’s garage, after leaving the neighbor's house. Unfortunately, Scott was impaired by alcohol, and was charged with drunken driving. The charge was dismissed because we successfully argued that he never actually operated the car on a public roadway.
- State of Wisconsin v. Sean (last name withheld): Last year, Sean hired an inexperienced lawyer, pled guilty to third offense OWI and was sentenced to jail. He did have two prior OWI convictions. We looked at the prior convictions and quickly realized that neither one of them should have been counted. In a recent hearing, Sean's case was reduced from a third offense to a first offense.
- City of Waukesha v. Patrick (last name withheld): OWI and Refusal. Not Guilty finding on both counts after trial.
- City of Milwaukee v. Chad (last name withheld): OWI, Hit and Run and Refusal. All charges dismissed on defendant's motion at trial.
- Village of Jackson v. George (last name withheld): George is a 46-year-old truck driver who had never been in trouble before in his life. But this charge would have cost him his career. We were able to get the charge reduced to reckless driving. George is still a truck driver.
- Kenosha County v. David (last name withheld): David was an Illinois driver facing a lifetime Illinois driver’s license revocation. The prosecutor refused to negotiate, so we went to trial. They were unable to properly present their evidence, so they had to reduce the charge to reckless driving.

Client Review: I hired attorney Mishlove to fight a DUI involving a blood test. i fought the charges at a 12 man jury , Attorney Mishlove not only is an excellent trial attorney. He also knows blood alcohol science. His knowledge in this field won me a not guilty verdict. All 12 jurors were convinced of my innocence. In something as serious as DUI , hire the best.
Lawyer Comment: This blood test case resulted in a not guilty verdict, due to possible contamination of the blood sample.
SOMETIMES YOU JUST DON’T KNOW HOW LUCKY YOU CAN BE!
Client Review: Taking into consideration the embarrassing nature of being charged with a DUI and then not being able to focus on the importance of selecting an attorney to represent you...........What an uncomfortable situation! I was referred to Atty Mishlove by a friend who is an attorney in another state. His words were "why not go with the best?" "you deserve the best representation possible."
Lawyer's Comment: Cynthia's case was dismissed.
Reduced My First Offense
Client: Name Withheld
Client Review: I'm an Illinois resident that got pulled over just before the border in Wisconsin. Andrew did an excellent job getting my charge reduced (which isn't easy in Wisconsin) and preventing me from having to go through the nightmare of dealing with the elevated penalties Illinois applies to its drivers when they receive a DUI in Wisconsin. Would highly recommend.
Lawyer's Comment: This case was reduced to a non-DUI charge.
My Perfect Lawyer
Client Review: Andrew Mishlove could be the best DWI lawyer in Wisconsin. I was pushed to make a deal in my pending situation. I told my lawyer that the deal was unacceptable. He told me that he went to a seminar that was hosted by Andrew, and that his expertise would be needed to defend my case. I used both lawyers together and it was the best decision I could have made in this situation. Andrew was incredible, to say the least! His expertise was crucial to getting my case dismissed. His knowledge of DWI Law is a step above any attorney that your friend, co-worker, or relative may refer you. I can not express in words how much Andrew has helped me & family through. Thank you, Andrew!
Lawyer's Comment: Mitch's case was dismissed when it was discovered that the police had covered up the loss of evidence in this mistaken case of Wisconsin drunk driving.
Who's in Your Corner, Fighting for You?
Client Review: Thank You, Andrew and Sarah !!!! I really appreciate your genuine interest in my well being, as well as interpreting the facts related to the stop, and defending me in my DUI case. I have really taken a hard look at my past drinking patterns, and will continue working to assure I will never make this mistake again.
Lawyer's Comment: Ed's case was dismissed.
Mr. Mishlove is a great attorney
Client Review: He was able to inform us of how the law works and informed us "do not plea guilty to the DUI charge." He was able to have charge dismissed and get us a misdemeanor, which helped my husband keep his license and save us from having to pay costly insurance payments down the road.
Lawyer Comment: Andrea’s Wisconsin OWI case was dismissed.
From felony to a misdemeanor
Client Review: Because of the knowledge and expertise of Mr. Mishlove, my felony 5th D.U.I. was reduced to a misdemeanor 4th. In addition, he argued for the minimum sentence for a 4th offense and we won. I had a few factors working to my benefit in the case, but without Mr. Mishlove the outcome would not have been possible. I would highly recommend his service for a D.U.I./ O.W.I. case.
Got the job done
Client Review: Andrew and his firm we compassionate, respectful and most of all effective. They were able to take my case and point out all of the unjust and invalid evidence. Gaining me a Dismissed verdict. Well Done!!!
Client Review: Mishlove law office staff very understanding about my problem and kept me informed every step of the way during the process. Andrew gave great advice and very understanding to my needs. If you have an OWI or any traffic offence you would want Andrew Mishlove fighting in you corner.
Lawyer's Comment: Terry's WI OWI case was dismissed.
Adam (last name with-held on this website)
Client: Name Withheld
Client Review: Great lawyer, I am still in the middle of my case but it is looking very optimistic. He did a great job of looking at every detail and finding the best way to fight my case.
Lawyer's Comment: Adam's case was dismissed on December 28, 2009, after the court had ruled that he was illegally stopped by the police.
Endorsment from client: Mark (last name withheld on this website) Antioch (IL)
Client Review: After working with Andrew, I have to say that he is one of the most competent people I have ever met. His attention to every detail and skill in the courtroom is unsurpassed. As a former client of his, I have nothing but praise and if you are in need of representation, you can do no better.
Lawyer's Comment: Mark's Wisconsin drunk driving charge was reduced to reckless driving.
He works for you
Client Review: Andrew Mishlove's swagger was the first thing I noticed about him. He is a very confident man, and with his knowledge of laws and rights he has defending down to a science. I would recommend this attorney to anyone seeking DWI defense in the entire state of Wisconsin and I appreciate his efforts for me and my family more than I ever could of dreamed. Andrew Mishlove is not just an attorney, but a friend because he takes all cases as if it were his own flesh and blood he is defending.
Lawyer Comment: This case was won because the WI OWI prosecution was unable to show that the blood was correctly drawn by a qualified person.
Client Review: Attorney Mishlove handled my case extremely well. Shawano County has a definite reputation as not being "pro defendant", especially in DUI cases. Most lawyers will not even consider taking cases in this county and if they do, they feel they have lost before the case even starts. Plea bargains are virtually non-existent. Attorney Mishlove was able to win my case when against very high odds. Attorney Mishlove's knowledge of DUI laws was evident throughout the whole process. His extensive knowledge of sobriety tests, test guidelines, laws, and administration of the tests was clearly demonstrated, and quite crucial in my case. His courtroom presence, delivery, and cross examination was incredible, and resulted in me winning my case. Attorney Mishlove's staff is A1 and always provided me with assistance and guidance, and put me in touch with Attorney Mishlove whenever I requested.
Lawyer Comment: This was a blood test case, where we believed that the field sobriety tests and the blood test were improperly done. The prosecution would not budge, so we went to a jury trial. The verdict was NOT GUILTY on all counts.
Client: Name Withheld
Client Review: Extremely knowledgeable on Case law and immediately responsive to questions via email and or phone. I am also an attorney in another state and have never dealt with any attorney of his stature. He does not offer false hope nor is he negative. Andrew is extremely matter of fact and the go to guy for DUI law defense in Wisconsin.
Lawyer's Comment: A successful appeal in this case established that entrapment is a proper defense in a Wisconsin OWI case.
