Start with an Attorney Working for Your Best Interests

Being charged with a crime is traumatic. But being charged with a crime is not the same thing as being guilty of it. You have the right to a strong legal defense, and everyone should be prepared by knowing the basics of criminal law services. Regardless of the severity of the accusation, the Waukesha criminal defense lawyers at Wolff & Sonderhouse will always work for your best interests.

At Wolff & Sonderhouse, we know each case is unique. Every client deserves a criminal defense attorney who will take the time to fully understand the specific situation and then mount the strongest possible defense. Our expertise is versatile in a range of criminal law services.

Bail & Criminal Defense

The purpose of bail is to assure the accused person will appear in court. Bail is not punishment. The trial has not happened. There has been no conviction. Our defense attorneys at Wolff & Sonderhouse know the various considerations used to determine bail. We will be sure to understand your financial situation. Our Waukesha criminal defense attorneys will negotiate for a bail which reasonably ensures your presence at trial. We seek to avoid an excessively large bail which might harm your family's ability to meet basic living expenses.

Violent Crimes in Milwaukee

At Wolff & Sonderhouse LLP, we defend clients against many different charges involving violent crimes such as arson, assault, battery, burglary, car-jacking, homicide, kidnapping, manslaughter, murder, robbery, and sexual offenses. Many of these are "three-strike" offenses. The third conviction can mean permanent loss of your freedom. When it gets this serious, you need the best criminal defense attorney you can get - like the experienced and proven criminal defense attorneys from Wolff & Sonderhouse who understand your Constitutional rights.

White Collar Crime Lawyers

White collar crimes aren't violent, but they are very serious. They are usually committed by people with good reputations who appear to be honest and responsible. White collar crime is getting much more attention from prosecutors. Potential losses can be staggering. The public needs to be protected against such losses. The accused person also needs the protection of a strong defense. At Wolff & Sonderhouse, our Waukesha criminal defense attorneys and white collar crime lawyers know these cases are often very complex. They may involve accounting practices or bank practices. Computer and internet crimes are also becoming more common, as is corporate fraud, insurance and health care fraud, money laundering, and RICO violations.

Theft Defense Attorney

Taking property which does not belong to you is a crime, no matter what the circumstances. The amount of property stolen - and the manner in which you were accused of stealing it - will affect the seriousness of the charge against you. These crimes range from obtaining property under false pretense, larceny, burglary, or embezzlement. Theft defense can also include grand theft auto, dealing in stolen property, or cashing bad checks.

At the law firm of Wolff & Sonderhouse, our theft defense attorneys effectively handle all types of criminal matters, including domestic violence, drug/narcotic violations, DUI / OWI, firearms & other weapons, juvenile crime, sexual offenses, theft/burglary, violent offenses, and white collar crime.
