Milwaukee County criminal defense attorney OWI

Being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in Wisconsin carries stiff penalties regardless of the situation. However, operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) with a child in the car can incur even harsher penalties. Drunk driving is estimated to cause over one-third of traffic fatalities in Wisconsin. Sadly, many intoxicated driving accident victims are children. Because of this, Wisconsin has instituted enhanced penalties for OWI offenders who have a child under the age of 16 in the vehicle.  

OWI With a Minor Passenger in Wisconsin

The severity of the penalties someone faces for drunk driving varies significantly depending on the driver’s history. First-time OWI offenses usually only result in civil penalties. The offender must pay a fine and cannot drive for a license revocation period of up to nine months. However, if a driver has been charged with OWI in the past and is arrested for a second or subsequent OWI, he or she may face criminal consequences.

Walworth County criminal defense attorney domestic violence

Domestic violence involves physical or psychological abuse against a former or current family member, romantic partner, or household member. Wisconsin takes accusations of domestic violence or abuse very seriously. There is not a crime specifically called “domestic violence,” but battery, assault, sexual assault, and other crimes often fall under the category of domestic violence. If you have been arrested for alleged violence against a spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend, ex-romantic partner, child, or roommate, do not take these charges casually. Your career, reputation, and even your freedom could be on the line.

Do Not Make Statements to the Police Without Your Attorney

You have a Constitutional right to refuse police questioning and ask for your lawyer. It is important to take advantage of this right. Whatever the circumstances of your arrest, the ordeal was most likely traumatic. You may have gotten into a physical altercation with another person and been injured. You may have been accused of things you did not actually do. Experiences like these leave a person in a heightened emotional state. You could easily say things to the police during questioning that you do not mean and end up worsening your situation because of it. Remember, any statements that you make to police can be used against you during criminal proceedings. It is best to remain silent and wait for your attorney.

Waukesha County divorce attorney property division

The joining of two lives through marriage also involves the joining of the spouses’ finances. Determining how to divide marital property is often one of the key issues in a Wisconsin divorce. Disputes about property division during divorce can escalate and become contentious and complex. If you are considering divorce, it is important to know how property division is handled according to Wisconsin law.

Wisconsin Family Courts Follow “Community Property” Laws

Each state handles property division during divorce slightly differently. Wisconsin is a community property state. Property and funds accumulated during the marriage are owned by the “marital estate” and are subject to division during divorce. Spouses have an equal right to marital property in a community property state. Even if only one spouse’s name is on the title to an asset, both spouses have an equal right to that asset. It is also crucial to remember that the word “property” in this context refers to assets as well as debts.

Racine County personal injury attorney car accident

Everyone knows that it is dangerous to text and drive. Unfortunately, this does not stop millions of drivers from using their phones while driving. Using a cell phone, tablet, GPS, or other electronic devices behind the wheel is the most dangerous form of distracted driving because it takes your hands, eyes, and attention away from driving. If you or a loved one were injured in a distracted driving accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages through a personal injury claim.  

Study Shows that Distracted Driving Is On the Rise

A study conducted by Zendrive shows that distracted driving is a much greater problem than previously realized. It is also a problem that is increasing in severity. According to the data compiled, individuals use their cell phones while driving an average of 88 out of 100 trips. Distracted driving often involves cell phones and other portable electronic devices; however, non-device distractions can be just as dangerous. Eating, drinking, grooming, and other activities may lead to severe and even deadly distracted driving accidents.

Domestic violence affects the lives of millions of Americas. Whether you have been a victim of domestic violence or abuse or you have been accused of abusing someone, it is important to know about your rights and responsibilities regarding restraining orders. A restraining order is a type of court order called an injunction. For example, this legally enforceable order may prohibit an individual from contacting or coming within a certain distance of you and/or your children.  

Domestic Violence and Abuse

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 10 million men and women are the victims of physical abuse at the hands of a romantic partner every year in the United States. Both males and females can be victims or perpetrators of domestic violence. Physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse can happen to people of all income levels and lifestyles. A restraining order prevents an alleged abuser from continuing to abuse or harass someone. Violating the terms of a restraining order is a misdemeanor offense in Wisconsin, punishable by up to nine months in jail and fines of up to $10,000.
