Wisconsin's Best Criminal Defense Attorneys

Being accused of a criminal offense is the last thing people think about and can have serious repercussions. If you've been arrested or charged with a crime or are being investigated for a crime, having a law firm that's experienced, skilled, and respected behind you can be the difference in your case. There's simply too much on the line in these situations not to have the very best attorneys working for you. You'll find those attorneys at Kim & LaVoy, S.C. We're a criminal defense firm. In other words, 100% of our practice is dedicated to drunk driving and criminal defense. No case is too big or too small for our firm to handle. Our attorneys have handled everything from traffic citations to homicides. Whatever your legal issue may be, you can feel confident that our firm has the necessary experience and skill to help you.

For the seventh year in a row, Attorneys Julius Kim and Jonathan A. LaVoy were recognized in Milwaukee Magazine as two of Wisconsin's best criminal defense attorneys in an annual survey of judges, prosecutors and lawyers from across the state.

A Former Prosecutor's Perspective

One of our firm's greatest strengths is the experience that attorney Julius Kim brings. As a former Assistant District Attorney for Milwaukee County who prosecuted a wide variety of crimes, he provides a unique perspective that benefits all of our clients. With his experience, our attorneys have greater insight into a prosecutor's strategies and concerns during the investigatory phase of a case, as well as during plea negotiations and trials.

Honest Case Assessments and Straightforward Answers

At our law firm, you'll receive an honest assessment of your case and straightforward answers to your questions. We believe that's the only way people can make good decisions about their case and the only way to practice law. Creating false hopes or unrealistic expectations doesn't serve anyone. If your case is better off being resolved through the plea negotiation process, we'll tell you that. On the other hand, if there are legal challenges that can be raised or proof problems in your case, our attorneys are among the best in the state at putting the prosecution to their burden of proof and zealously litigating cases.
