Wisconsin Is Tough On Drunk Drivers: Get A Tough Legal Defense
Wisconsin law is tough on people accused of drunk driving. If convicted, you could pay heavy fines, lose your driver’s license and even spend time behind bars. To defend against these harsh penalties, it is important to quickly seek help from an experienced lawyer.
At the Law Offices of Christy M. Hall, LLC, in Racine, aggressive criminal defense representation is available. Attorney Christy M. Hall has been defending people against drunk driving charges — whether labeled operating while intoxicated (OWI) or driving under the influence (DUI) — for more than 20 years. She also handles other alcohol-related criminal charges, including driving on a revoked license, vehicular assault and vehicular homicide.
Act Quickly To Preserve Driving Your Privileges
Following a drunk driving arrest, a person only has a 10-day window before the state Department of Motor Vehicles will take action to suspend his or her driver’s license. That is why it is important to seek legal help as soon as possible, especially for commercial truck drivers or anyone who needs to drive to earn a living.
Christy M. Hall can help you take the steps needed to protect your driving privileges. She can also answer your questions about the process and your rights.
Pleading Guilty Should Be The Last Resort
Many people automatically plead guilty to drunk driving, especially if the results of a blood or breath test show that they are above the legal limit. However, these tests are not foolproof, and pleading guilty should be the last resort. You may be surprised at the options available to you for either minimizing the charges or getting them dismissed altogether.
All avenues of defense will be explored. Christy M. Hall will thoroughly investigate the original police stop and determine if officers followed the law. If she finds anything suspicious such as the officers not having probable cause to make a traffic stop or if there were problems with the tests, she will use this evidence in an attempt to mitigate the potential consequences.
