Trustworthy Milwaukee Criminal Defense Lawyers Protect Your Rights
Aggressive representation for those accused of misdemeanors and felonies
America’s criminal justice system is rooted in the philosophy that the accused is innocent until proven guilty. However, you can be harmed permanently even if you have merely been implicated in criminal conduct. Milwaukee’s Hart Law Office can defend you if you have been arrested or accused of a criminal offense. Our attorneys represent clients in cases involving:
- OWI — Operating a vehicle while intoxicated carries a heavy penalty in Wisconsin, particularly when it’s not your first offense. A driver with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or greater is considered to be legally drunk.
- Drug crimes — Even possessing a small amount of marijuana can expose you to six months in jail for a first offense and a felony charge each time afterward.
- Sex crimes — False accusations of sexual assault can have severe consequences not only in the criminal system but also in your ability to get a job or even live peacefully where you wish.
Our firm has the knowledge and skill necessary to advocate for reduction or dismissal of your charges. With more than 35 years of experience practicing Wisconsin law, we have protected the rights of the accused in trials ranging from traffic offenses to homicide. Our criminal defense lawyers take a proactive approach to case management, building a defense strong enough to withstand rigorous cross-examination.
Protecting individual rights in domestic violence cases
Recently enacted Wisconsin domestic violence laws have expanded what the government can use as evidence when prosecuting individuals charged with domestic abuse. Knowledgeable lawyers are vital so that defendants have a complete picture of what they’ll be facing in court. If you have been accused of this type of crime, Hart Law Office has the experience and ability to protect your right to a fair trial.
Knowledgeable defense counsel for white collar criminal litigation
Crimes of embezzlement and fraud carry stringent punishments even though physical injury is not involved. These cases often turn on complex evidence requiring both sophisticated analysis and a clear presentation in court. Our attorneys have both the knowledge to identify the important information and the trial experience to deliver it in a clear, convincing manner.
Assisting families when children are charged with juvenile crimes
Wisconsin’s juvenile justice system operates within the state’s standard court system. Minors accused of crimes are often released to a parent or guardian and then have their case reviewed by an intake worker, who recommends a course of action. That recommendation may include a deferred prosecution agreement where the child agrees to certain obligations such as counseling, treatment, restitution or community service. If the child honors the terms of the agreement for the prescribed course of time, the charges are not brought. Juvenile records are sealed from the public except for the most serious offenses, but our attorneys can also assist in having juvenile records completely expunged for those over 17 years old who have met the conditions of their dispositional order.
