Criminal Defense

Criminal Law

Anytime you have been arrested you must take the charges you are facing seriously. The first step is to reach out to a Northwoods criminal defense attorney. You should do this before answering any questions posed by law enforcement. What you may not be aware of is the most innocuous question could land you in hot water later.

OUI/DUI/Drug Charges

If you were stopped for any reason, you may be facing drug possession charges or a drunk driving charge. While a first-time offense may not appear to be a big deal, if you do not fight back, you could face steep fines, an increase in your insurance rates, and points against your driving record.

Wisconsin takes drunk driving charges very seriously. A first-time OUI charge could mean you are facing fines over $1,000, a loss of your license for six to twelve months, and steep court costs. You cannot afford to let these charges go unanswered. This is where I can help you. We will discuss the circumstances of your arrest to make sure the stop was legal. If you submitted to a field sobriety test or a breathalyzer test, we will discuss the results. Together, we will work on your defense, so we can achieve the best possible results in court.

I understand a criminal record can have long-term consequences. I have helped residents of Florence, Forest, Marinette, Oconto, and Vilas counties in Wisconsin and Iron and Dickinson counties in Michigan fight back against a variety of criminal charges including:

  • Traffic
  • Misdemeanor
  • Felony
  • License Revocation

If you are arrested and are facing charges in northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, contact Waters Legal Services immediately for help. Let me help you fight back against these charges and protect your future.
