Why Choose Us?

Criminal Defense Is All We Do

We’re different from other attorneys who dabble. We only take criminal defense cases. We don’t practice in Minnesota, and we refuse contracts to prosecute municipal OWI/DUI cases. 100% of our time is dedicated to defending people in Wisconsin against the power of government. We do one thing so we can do it better than anyone else.

Fewer Cases Means More Attention To Our Clients

Even though we’d like to, our firm does not take every case that comes through our door. We are a low-volume office that gives each of our clients — and their cases — the time and attention they deserve. There is no substitute for taking the time needed to explore every avenue to win a case.

You Get The Whole Team — Not Just One Lawyer

When you bring us onboard, we start to work on your case and help you immediately. We’re responsive, attentive, and compassionate. You will receive the best attorney for your case, who will have a full team to support both lawyer and client.
