Fighting OWI Charges In Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, operating while intoxicated is charged when a person is found to be operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or greater. The charge is often called DUI or DWI in other states.

If you have been charged with OWI in Eau Claire or anywhere in Wisconsin, I can defend your rights in criminal proceedings as well as in the administrative process of protecting your driver's license.

I am well-versed in successful OWI defense strategies, including challenging:

  • The stop
  • The arrest
  • Field sobriety test results
  • Blood and breath test results

The consequences of an OWI conviction are severe. Your driver's license will be suspended. You may be required to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. You could face probation or jail time.

Police may make it sound like they have an open-and-shut case against you. This is not reason to despair. A skilled criminal defense lawyer can use the law to expose weaknesses in their case.

Do You Face Multiple OWI Charges?

An OWI charge is that much more severe when you have prior convictions on your record. I can examine your record to determine if a prior conviction can be disregarded, thus reducing the potential penalties you face for the present charge.
