Helping You Protect Your Driving Privileges

At the law office of David K. Sparr & Associates, S.C., we have been defending people against drunk driving, also known as OWI DUI or DWI, charges for more than 30 years. As a result of our experience, we know the police and court procedures, the prosecutors, and the judges who may be involved in your DWI /DUI case. We work hard to inform clients about the penalties they face when arrested for drunk driving. We always let individuals know when it would be more cost effective for them to handle their own DWI /OWI defense, a possibility with lower-level drunk driving offenses.

Penalties For DUI/DWI

The penalties for drunk driving in Wisconsin can be severe. You will usually face a license suspension or license revocation. Additionally, if you go to trial on a DUI / DWI charge, the chances are very high that you will be convicted. Consequently, our attorneys do everything possible, including negotiating plea bargains, to keep our DWI / OWI clients out of the courtroom and get the offense level reduced.

How An Experienced DWI Lawyer Can Help

Our DWI defense attorneys use many strategies to ensure that you are charged at the lowest possible level. We determine whether the arresting officer had the right to make a traffic stop-in other words, was there "reasonable suspicion"? If the stop is revealed to be an illegal traffic stop, then all charges may be dropped. If the officer did not properly read the form that invokes implied consent, the sobriety tests administered may be inadmissible in court.

Our attorneys also review police reports about the traffic stop, the field sobriety test notes, and police reports about any statements you may have made. If there are inconsistencies or inaccuracies in the police work related to your DWI charge, your attorney may be able to get the charges, and thus the penalties, reduced.

Our drunk driving defense lawyers also help clients gain admission to alcohol counseling or assessment programs before the beginning of formal legal proceedings. We have found that being proactive in this regard can be encouraging to the prosecutor, who then may be inclined to reduce charges or seek lesser penalties. Judges also take this into consideration at sentencing.
