Frequently Asked Questions

Wisconsin Criminal Attorneys | Wisconsin Criminal Defense

Q: If I'm guilty of the offense, do I need to hire a lawyer?

A: Absolutely. Regardless of whether you are guilty or innocent, it is important that your rights are protected and that someone gives you proper guidance and support both in and out of court. If you are guilty, our skilled defense attorneys can advocate on your behalf and obtain the best possible disposition of your case. This may mean less jail time, less probation, or a lower fine. In addition, many times we can negotiate for lesser charges or the dismissal of charges on your behalf depending on the facts of your case.

Q: How much do you cost and what forms of payment do you accept?

A: Our legal fees vary depending on the nature and complexity of each individual case. We will be happy to give you a quote once we learn more about the case. In addition, we generally charge flat fees to handle cases, rather than billing our clients by the hour. We accept virtually all forms of payment: check, cash, credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express), or money order.

Q: If I hire you, can you guarantee the outcome?

A: No. No one can guarantee the outcome of any criminal case. However, we can give you an honest assessment of your situation and tell you what will likely happen in your case based upon our extensive experience and knowledge handling criminal cases.

Q: I have not been charged with a crime yet, but the police would like to question me. What should I do?

A: Contact us to discuss your options. Our firm offers pre-charging representation to people in this situation. It is vital that you consult with an attorney prior to speaking with the police in order to ensure your rights are protected.
