THE BEST DRUNK DRIVING DEFENSE ATTORNEYS

Drunk driving cases in Wisconsin are serious.  Although your first offense usually does not carry any kind of incarceration, it’s important to fight your charges from the very beginning.  A first-offense drunk driving charge sticks with you for the rest of your life.  And it certainly counts on your record.

Subsequent drunk driving charges are even more important to defend.  Starting with a second offense OWI, convictions lead to time in jail.  And once you hit a fourth offense, it’s a felony.  The fact that your first offense was simply a ticket hurts you more when you get to these offenses.  Judges see your “free chance” as more of a reason to punish you later on.

At Meyer Van Severen, our criminal defense attorneys are always on top of changes in drunk driving, OWI, DUI, and PAC law.  Whether you were illegally stopped by police, illegally arrested after incorrect standardized field sobriety tests, or subject to some other unjust procedure, we’re here to help.  Our criminal defense attorneys are some of the best in Wisconsin, and are here to help you.
