About Milwaukee, WI

Located near the shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee’s infamous breweries, 100+ locally owned restaurants, and plenty of outdoor activities like kayaking and biking make America’s “Third Coast” a highly desirable area for people to call home. Attractions like the Harley-Davidson Museum and internationally recognized events like Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival that takes place every year in June/July, also make it a tourist destination like no other. However, the same attractions that make Milwaukee a popular destination spot for nearly 23 million tourists every year can also mean more potential for criminal offenses like OWIs, drug charges, gun charges, and other issues that can occur when people are partying or crossing state lines with different laws to adhere to. That’s where we come in. If you were arrested and charged with a criminal offense, we want to help you fight to reduce your charges.
