Wisconsin DUI laws are very strict in an effort to stop people from drinking and driving. This means that you will likely face a difficult battle to prove your innocence if you are wrongfully charged with a DUI. It also means that people who were drinking and driving will have an even harder time. The good news is that we can help you to determine what options you have for your defense.
When you are charged with a DUI, you are facing more than just a fine and incarceration. You are also dealing with the possibility that you won’t be able to drive legally because of a license suspension or revocation. You are also looking at the possibility of higher insurance premiums if you are allowed to drive because a DUI conviction makes you a high risk driver.
On top of those possible penalties, you also face the social and economic penalties that come with a conviction. The social penalties can include people who look on you because of your conviction. The stigma surrounding drunk driving is often considerable. On the economic side, you might have trouble finding suitable housing or employment because many employers and rental agencies rely on background checks to screen applicants.
We understand that things sometimes happen that cause you to do things you wouldn’t normally do. In the case of a DUI charge, you can’t undo the past. Instead, you must focus on the future by getting your defense together and working to present your side of the case. We can help you do that.
