Do I Need a Lawyer?
Hiring a lawyer for your OWI (operating while intoxicated) case is essential to keeping your license. First, make certain you choose a qualified lawyer. OWI cases, also known as DUI or driving under the influence, are complex, and some lawyers are not skilled or experienced in fighting them, even if they handle many guilty pleas. You should seriously consider choosing an attorney who has been consistently successful at fighting cases like yours.
We Will Build Your Defense
Our attorneys will build the defense for your DUI charge in order to prevent your license being revoked, possible penalties, and conviction. Often those convicted of driving while intoxicated can prevent suspension by agreeing to install an interlock device and follow other suspension protocols. Your lawyer will review all possible defenses:
Drunk driving arrests in Wisconsin often result in a blood sample being taken to determine your blood alcohol level, but testing errors do happen frequently. It takes a skilled, experienced defense attorney to review not only the one-page government lab report, but also the hundreds of pages of underlying lab records, in order to determine whether a retest of the blood sample is a good idea. A retest might clear you, but if it is done in the wrong way, it might result in a conviction or a suspension of your driver's license.
Any arrest must be based on probable cause. If your motor vehicle was stopped for a traffic violation, the stop must be based on probable cause. A good DUI lawyer knows that the the tests performed on you must meet certain guidelines, so looking a qualified lawyer reviews the police reports, the video tapes, the radio traffic between the squad car and the dispatch. At Mishlove and Stuckert, we have the same training as the police in standardized field sobriety testing, so we know how to find police errors.
Your DUI lawyer will explain all of the different kinds of hearings that may take place, including: the initial appearance and bail hearing, the pretrial conference, any motion hearing, a court trial, a jury trial, a refusal hearing, an administrative hearing, an appeal from municipal court or an appeal to the appeals court. These are the basic hearings; there are others.
5-Star Reviews From Milwaukee, West Bend, Waukesha, and Oshkosh, WI, Clients
We were reluctant to hire Mr Mishlove due to his high fee, however, looking back, it was one of the best decisions we have made. 1st OWI reduced to reckless driving. An absolute life changer and we are so deeply grateful for the expertise and knowledge that this law firm has provided. Everyone at this firm was kind, respectful and hard working. We were kept informed of the proceedings as they were happening and our questions were answered promptly, even after hours. I cannot put into words how much Andrew Mishlove has helped us through the impossible. He is worth every penny of his fee! Best lawyer hands down! Regards!View on Google
I had the unfortunate experience of having to go through my first DUI. After explaining my case to Andrew he came up with a great game plan for my case. He ended up getting my breathalyzer results dropped due to the officers not following proper procedures. It was very impressive how he turned the case around on the prosecutor and won over the judge! This was a huge win for me due to having to drive other peoples cars for a living. I highly recommend Mishlove & Stuckert!View on Google
