Our attorneys are trained to investigate complex fact patterns, analyze the law and develop a comprehensive legal strategy to aid your defense. We strive to leave no stone unturned. When analyzing your case, our attorneys always consider the following issues:

Reasonable Suspicion: Law enforcement officers must have reasonable suspicion to suspect criminal activity prior to making any stop or detention decision, since failing to do so may lead to evidence suppression and subsequent lack of prosecutions.

Probable Cause: Probable cause refers to whether there was sufficient evidence that indicated a crime had been committed, justifying an arrest or search. Failure to establish this can result in evidence being excluded and can compromise trial proceedings.

Miranda Rights: Establishing whether and when a person who is being detained should have been informed of their Miranda rights – such as their right to remain silent and the ability to consult with an attorney. Failure to read one’s Miranda rights could have an adverse impact on any statements made by defendants during questioning or trial proceedings.

Warrants: Evaluating whether searches and seizures were conducted legally with valid warrants or an exception was given, since unlawful searches can lead to evidence suppression.

Consent to Search: Examining whether law enforcement obtained valid consent from individuals before conducting searches. Such permission must be freely given; any attempts at coercion could void the admissibility of evidence gathered.

Identification Issues: Evaluating witness identifications to assess their reliability, whether suggestive identification procedures were utilized and any faulty identifications may raise doubts regarding an accused’s guilt.

Chain of Custody: Ensuring evidence has been properly handled, stored, and preserved to preserve its integrity is of utmost importance; any mishandling could lead to its exclusion.

Eyewitness Testimony: Evaluate the accuracy and reliability of eyewitness testimony which may be affected by factors like memory or suggestion.

Constitutional Violations: Spotting potential violations of a defendant’s constitutional rights, such as those protected under the Fourth, Fifth and Eight Amendments.Legal Defenses: Investigating possible legal defenses such as self-defense, duress or entrapment depending on the facts of each case.

Each of these issues requires careful examination and legal analysis by criminal defense attorneys to protect the rights and interests of the accused in Wisconsin criminal cases. Legal arguments related to these issues can significantly impact the outcome of a case, potentially leading to the suppression of evidence or the dismissal of charges.

Expungement, when available, offers those who have been convicted a chance to set some of the worst days of their lives behind them. For many, expungement offers a chance at redemption and improved mental and emotional well-being. It also offers an opportunity to restore access to education, housing, employment and possibly professional licensing opportunities not available to people with criminal records. However, not everybody qualifies for expungement.
