Don't Let a Drunk Driving Conviction Negatively Affect Your Future

Attorney Michael C. Witt recognizes the life-altering consequences you may suffer if you are charged with drunk driving - drivers' license suspension, jail time, expensive fines and insurance rates and a permanent mark on your criminal record.

Over the course of two decades, our founding lawyer has helped thousands of individuals in Jefferson County and statewide avoid substantial penalties and safeguard their future.

Although common, OWI/DUI charges are often very challenging to overcome. Drawing from more than 20 years of trial experience and gained knowledge of the state drunk driving laws, Michael C. Witt has successfully handled all levels of charges, ranging from first offenses to felony OWI charges.

When you consult with Criminal Defense & Civil Litigation, our attorney will work closely with you to learn about your case and provide a realistic and comprehensive assessment to determine the challenges you are up against. In crafting a strong defense plan, we will:

  • Challenge probable cause law enforcement had for stopping you and ensure your constitutional rights were not violated
  • Challenge the validity and administration of field sobriety tests
  • Challenge the breath machine BAC results
  • Challenge the relationship of the blood test result to your actual alcohol concentration at the time of driving, known as a curve defense
  • Challenge the administration and operation breath machine

The consequences you face depend on the circumstances surrounding your case. Was this your first arrest? Was someone hurt? Often, individuals won't seek legal advice from a defense attorney for their first offense because it is usually not considered a crime in Wisconsin. Regardless of how many drunk driving offenses you have faced before, in order to protect your rights and your freedom, it is crucial to speak to a skilled legal professional.

Michael C. Witt has been trained in the administration of the NHTSA Standardized Field Sobriety Test battery and has completed NHTSA Faculty Development Workshops at the National Judicial College. He has lectured on handling scientific evidence in the context of OWI cases for the past 15 years to legal and judicial audiences. His science background has helped our attorney with the preliminary analysis of varying scientific aspects of the drunk driving cases he handles.
