In Wisconsin, a fifth OWI (operating while intoxicated) offense is an automatic felony charge.

Aggressive and Zealous Advocates for Repeat Alcohol Offenders
A felony OWI is a difficult charge to walk away from, as the courts are not eager give repeat offenders yet another chance. However, no matter how many prior OWI and/or serious traffic violation offenses you may have, you are always entitled to aggressive advocacy. At the Froelich Law Offices, that is exactly what our clients receive. No matter the situation, we provide clients with the compassionate service they deserve and the zealous representation they need.
The OWI Defense Process
As with every criminal case we handle, our felony OWI defense begins with an exhaustive review and careful investigation of the case against our clients. We look at multiple areas, including:
- Police reports for inaccuracies and lack of consistency
- Determining if there was reasonable suspicion to conduct the stop
- Determining if there was probable cause to arrest
- Determining if profiling took place
- Looking at how you performed in the field sobriety tests
- Studying preliminary breath/Breathalyzer test
- Examining lab and BAC reports
- Examining testing equipment records
- Examining whether Miranda rights were read
- Examining whether the opportunity to call a lawyer was provided
At Froelich Law Offices, we often encourage clients to complete an alcohol program before appearing in court. This not only provides assistance with a potential addiction problem, but also shows the judge that you are aware of your mistake and are taking active measures to prevent it from happening again. In addition, we use carefully executed arguments to show that prison is not always an effective punishment for repeat offenders.
Rest assured, we will do all we can to secure positive results in your case.
