"I Highly Recommend Mishlove & Stuckert!"


Ries Hansen

I owe a great debt of thanks to Andrew Mishlove. He successfully defended me in an OWI case that endured for more than 6 ½ years in the Wisconsin judicial system, including a detour through the Wisconsin State Supreme Court system, and ultimately led to a showdown in an Ozaukee County criminal court resulting in a not-guilty verdict returned by a 12-member jury in February 2023. I think my experience qualifies me to personally attest to Andrew Mishlove’s reputation as a brilliant trial attorney and one of the best OWI defense lawyers in the entire country... Andrew is an expert in OWI defense. He is incredibly well informed and prepared before a trial. He is approachable, a professional, and serious. Finally, Andrew was always a gentleman in and out of court. He was well liked by the judges, the prosecutor and most importantly, the jury. His courtroom demeaner and ethics were unflappable. I highly recommend Andrew Mishlove. He is worth whatever your future is worth. Ries Hansen
