Madison OWI Lawyer & Criminal Defense Attorney

You are legally Not Guilty when Charged with a Crime.  I Will Work Hard to Keep It that Way.

If you’ve been charged with a crime, my role is to protect your rights, oppose the prosecution’s efforts to convict, and work tenaciously in seeking to obtain the best result possible.

If you, your child, or a family member or loved one has been charged with a crime, I understand the uncertainty and anxiety you may be experiencing.  Please call me as soon as possible. It does not cost any more to hire me at the outset of a case than later, so please call me so that I may begin representation immediately.

Criminal charges affect whole families, not just an individual. My representation is focused not only helping clients
with their specific legal issue, but also understanding their unique circumstances, and taking into account how their legal matter also affects other aspects of their lives.
