Criminal law is generally governed by both Federal and State Statutes, and crimes are clasified as either misdeamenors or felonies. A crime is defined in Wisconsin Statute Section 939.12 as "conduct prohibited by state law and punishable by fine or imprisonment or both. Conduct punishable only by a forfeiture is not a crime."  A Misdemeanor is defined in section 939.51 as a crime which is punishable by a jail term for less than a year, while a Felony is defined in Sections 939.60 & 973.02 as a crime punishable by imprisionment in the Wisconsin State Prisons, for a period exceeding one year.  The court process is similar for both with some notable differences.

As your defense attorney, we will assess the charge(s) pending against you, defend you, protect your legal rights from being violated, seek to have your charges dismissed or reduced (depending on the facts of your case), and guide you through the process as your advocate and defender.
