Criminal Defense For Misdemeanors And Felonies In Dane County
Our criminal defense lawyers represent clients facing criminal charges for misdemeanors and felonies, including those accused of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Our attorneys are passionate about protecting your constitutional rights. We take any criminal charges against you seriously and will investigate your case to understand all the evidence. We will make sure you understand all of the charges you are facing and explain everything that is happening with your court case so that you can make informed decisions when it comes to the legal strategy for your case. We will negotiate on your behalf and represent you at trial if necessary.
Protecting Your Constitutional Rights
Our criminal defense attorneys are passionate about protecting and preserving your constitutional rights in a criminal case. Everyone has a constitutional right to remain silent – meaning you do not have to answer police questions regarding your conduct.
If an officer asks for your identifying information such as your name and address, you should provide this information. However, beyond this basic information, you do not have to discuss any particular situation with a police officer. In addition, here are other rights that our attorneys would like you to know about:
- You have the right to hire an attorney: You can demand that the police stop talking to you until your attorney is present. All you have to do is simply state that you want an attorney and tell them you are exercising your right to remain silent.
- Police have the right to lie: Under the laws, police officers do not have to tell you the truth. They are allowed to lie to you in order to obtain information about their case and the result is that this can be damaging and harmful to you and your case.
- You have the right to a hearing: If you are arrested in Dane County, and you are not released, you should have your first court appearance within 72 hours of your arrest.
If criminal charges have been filed against you and a warrant was issued for your arrest, our attorneys can help you try to resolve the warrant issue without you having to be arrested. It is possible to remove and resolve the warrant without you having to spend time in jail.
Decades Of Negotiation And Litigation Experience
When choosing a criminal defense attorney, it is important to choose a lawyer who has experience trying cases before a jury, but it is equally important to choose an attorney who is skilled at negotiating plea agreements and settling criminal cases. Our firm has attorneys with decades of experience and who are skilled at both settling criminal cases on terms that are favorable to our clients and winning criminal cases that are tried before a jury.
