Madison Criminal Defense Law

Exceptional trial attorneys. Exceptional experience. Exceptional knowledge.

Exceptional results.

Not all lawyers have the same level of experience, expertise, judgment or skill. Just because a lawyer holds a law license does not mean that he or she is well-equipped to handle a serious case. Hiring a Wisconsin attorney is a decision that can affect your entire life. Before you do so, you should ask a lot of questions, like:

  • How many trials have you handled in the past year?
  • What was the last trial you handled?
  • What were the results of that trial?

Choosing an attorney with a record of success in cases similar to yours is the best way to ensure that he or she has the experience and in-depth knowledge to achieve the best possible results for you.

Why Trial Skills Matter

In criminal proceedings, the proper oral advocacy skills in an attorney can make the difference between exoneration and conviction, between liberty and incarceration. In family court, a prepared lawyer can help secure the best interests of your children and preserve the financial assets you have worked years to earn and save.
