OWI / Drunk driving

Maybe you were at a party, having a good time, and everyone was buying drinks, maybe you were just having one of “those” days. Whatever the reason, you ended up having one too many, got pulled over, and the officer cites you for OWI. Now what?

Drunk driving or Operating While under the Influence has many three-letter abbreviations associated with it, OWI, DWI, DUI, PAC, and BAC are all terms that allude to the catch all term of “drunk driving”.

If this is your first offense, the arresting officer may have said something along the lines of “don’t worry, this is your first DUI, it basically just a traffic ticket…” THIS IS NOT TRUE!!!

Even if this is your first offense, you face significant fines, driver’s license revocation for up to 9 months, expensive Alcohol and Other Drug Assessment classes, you can be required to have expensive Ignition Interlock Device installed in your vehicles, and required to have costly SR-22 high-risk driver’s insurance.

Don’t try to take this charge on alone! Call Kammer Law Office, S.C. and speak to a knowledgeable, skilled attorney that will sit down with you, explain in detail what everything means, go over your specific situation, and will fashion for you the best strategy to approach your case with the goal of getting your charges reduced or even dropped entirely.

Drug Charges

As of January 1, 2020, marijuana is, at the state level, legal to use recreationally in 11 states, including our neighbors to the south, Illinois. But it is still illegal in Wisconsin, and the penalties can be quite severe!

While a first offense possession for marijuana is a misdemeanor with a fine of up to $1,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 6 months, a second offense is a felony and carries a potential penalty of up to 3.5 years imprisonment and/or a fine of up to $10,000! Additionally, driving privileges may be suspended anywhere from 6 months to 5 years, lengthy probation terms, property forfeiture, disqualification from college loans, and mandatory drug treatment programs.

Wisconsin takes marijuana and other drug charges very seriously! Do not make the mistake of believing a judge will go easy on you because marijuana is legal in other states.

If you have been charged with drug related offenses, whether it is marijuana or any other drugs, call the expert attorney’s at Kammer Law, S.C. and speak to them about your charges and tell them exactly what happened so that they may create for you a powerful defense leading to reduced charges, deferred prosecution agreements, as well as getting your charges dropped entirely.

Traffic

With most traffic related offenses, it may very well be true that hiring a lawyer to fight it may be more expensive then just paying the ticket. But it may not always be that cut and dry.

Wisconsin operates on the point system, if you accumulate 12 or more demerit points received by being convicted of moving-traffic violations, within a 12-month period, your drivers license will be suspended requiring you to apply for an occupational driver’s license as well as requiring very expensive SR-22 high-risk driver’s insurance.

Say, for instance, you already have 6 points accumulated, and you receive a ticket for going 20mph over the limit. That ticket is worth 6 demerit points and is worth hiring an attorney to fight so as not to have your driver’s license suspended.

Or it may be that in your case, you were given a ticket for an moving violation that you absolutely did not do, and not only do you wish to fight it to save from paying for it and the points it carries, but also on the principle of the matter, having been ticketed for something you did not do. Then I say it’s worth calling Kammer Law, S.C. and hiring an attorney to fight your ticket for you.

We also handle traffic cases where the client is a professional or commercial driver license holder (CDL). We understand the strict rules that professional and CDL drivers operate under and how even the least punitive ticket given can have drastic effects on their records as well as their livelihood overall.

If you have received a traffic related ticket and wish to fight it, don’t contact just any lawyer, trust the expert attorney’s at Kammer Law, S.C. Call to set up an appointment today.
