We Wrote the Book on Drunk Driving Defense in Wisconsin
We literally wrote the book on drunk driving defense in Wisconsin.
The very first Wisconsin OWI/DUI attorney's textbook, Wisconsin OWI Defense, 2013, Lawyers & Judges Publishing Company, by Andrew Mishlove and James Nesci, immediately became a must-have book for Wisconsin attorneys. It was widely acclaimed as the most useful resource on defending OWI/DUI cases in Wisconsin.
The new edition, revised and updated with the latest information, was published in May 2020, and it has received great reviews. Mishlove and Nesci's Wisconsin OWI Defense, Second Edition, 2020, is the new must-have resource for any Wisconsin lawyer practicing OWI DUI defense.
In the book, Andrew Mishlove explains much of the extensive knowledge of DUI defense that he has acquired over the last four decades, from the science of breath and blood testing to the art of trial advocacy. Mishlove has forty years of experience in presenting persuasive cases in court proceedings from countless motion hearings to over 400 jury trials. As a graduate of the famed Trial Lawyers College, a member of the Board of Regents of the National College of DUI Defense, and Course Director for the Serious Science courses for lawyers, Andrew Mishlove is recognized nationally as a premier DUI defense attorney. Mishlove and Nesci's Wisconsin textbook for lawyers is the only work of its kind and solidifies Mishlove's position as the go-to lawyer for OWI/DUI defense in Wisconsin.

Defending You Against Serious Charges
DUI with a Minor Passenger
DUI cases become much more serious if a minor under the age of 16 is in the vehicle at the time you are pulled over. The case is escalated to a criminal charge and will involve mandatory jail time. However, the way this law is written is unclear and is argued differently by different prosecutors. Our defense attorneys can fight to ensure that you don't receive a harsher penalty than you deserve under the law.
Marijuana DUI Charge
Wisconsin laws regarding driving while under the influence of marijuana are very strict, and many DUI lawyers do not have a full understanding of the scientific and legal processes involved in these charges. Our criminal defense firm, however, is one of very few in the United States to successfully challenge laboratory results in these cases. Both of our DUI attorneys have advanced knowledge of the chemistry involved in testing for drug levels in the blood and can use this extensively in your defense.
DUI with Vehicular Homicide
In these tragic circumstances, the penalties are severe, including fines of up to $100,000 and a prison sentence of up to 25 years. Additionally, a new law presumes a 5-year minimum period of confinement in prison unless the court finds "compelling reasons" to give less time. Many courts are also now holding that at least a one-year confinement in prison is absolutely mandatory, but this mandate is now under appeal.
DUI with Injury or Great Bodily Harm
If you were involved in an auto accident that caused injuries and you are accused of being impaired by drugs or alcohol during the accident, the consequences could involve significant fines or jail time. When you hire one of our DUI attorneys, they can review the details of your case to ensure that you are being treated fairly under the law. They will represent you in court to eliminate or reduce charges.
