Attorney Jody L. Usow
Milwaukee Area Divorce, Family Law and Criminal Defense Lawyer
Before you speak to police or other law enforcement about any allegation of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) you are entitled to speak to a lawyer. Don't lose this important opportunity, seek legal counsel BEFORE you speak to law enforcement.
A DUI conviction can have potentially life-altering consequences. DUI convictions can affect your financial future, your family life, your employment, and in some cases your criminal record.
If you lose your license as a result of a DUI conviction you may not be able to perform your job, pick up your children from an ex-spouse for scheduled placement and many other daily functions that have a critical impact on both your self-worth and your net-worth.
If you have been charged with DUI, an experienced criminal-defense lawyer can help your protect your legal rights and help keep your life on track.
Keep in mind that, in Wisconsin, a DUI charge can include the consumption of alcohol or drugs, whether prescribed or not. For example, if you are under the influence of a sleep aid, such as Ambien, while driving you could potentially be charged with DUI, even if you have not consumed alcohol.
To discuss your legal rights and all of the options available to you in a DUI or OWI matter, contact Attorney Jody Usow at (414) 272-7800.
