We understand that people make mistakes. If you or someone you knows has recently been charged with an OWI/DUI in Marquette County, Wisconsin, having a knowledgeable and reputable criminal defense attorney is a top priority. Along with drunk driving cases, we can defend you in cases of first time offenses, multiple offenses, Felony OWI, Refusals and McNeely Issues, and cases of OWI’s resulting in injury.
In the state of Wisconsin, a first-third time offender is deemed incapable of driving a motor vehicle if their BAC is above a .08. As in any state the consequences of drunk driving in Wisconsin are serious and depending on previous convictions could result in fines, jail time, a required Ignition Interlock Device, loss of driving privileges, and more. With each offense, the presence of a minor under the age of 16, increases the severity and consequences.
The attorneys at Southworth and Stamman have backgrounds as former prosecutors and know how to expose weaknesses in the state’s case against you. As with any offense in the state, it is vital that you contact a criminal defense attorney before talking to the police, as anything you say can be used against you and as an admission of guilt.
Although a charge of OWI in Wisconsin is a very serious matter, we will defend your Constitutional rights and work towards a reduction in penalties or a case dismissal.
