Were You Charged With OWI?

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

Defense Strategies Make The Difference

We are 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 the case. If you are wondering what happens after being arrested on suspicion of OWI, we can answer your questions.

Do You Face Multiple OWI Charges?

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