Criminal Defense

There is no such thing as a minor criminal charge in the state of Wisconsin. Offenses that might seem like "no big deal"—such as shoplifting, low-level drug possession, or vandalism—can quickly become a big deal when formal charges are filed. Suddenly, you could be facing jail time and expensive fines, even if it is your first offense. The lawyers at Wolff & Sonderhouse, LLP have the knowledge, experience, and resources to help you build an aggressive, responsible defense against a wide range of misdemeanor and felony charges.

OWI

OWI – Operating While Intoxicated

In some states, a drunk driving charge is called DUI—short for "driving under the influence." Here in Wisconsin, we call it "operating while intoxicated," or OWI. Regardless of the name or abbreviation, the reality is that drunk driving charges carry serious criminal penalties and administrative consequences. That is why it is so important to have a qualified OWI defense from Wolff & Sonderhouse, LLP on your side. Our lawyers have vast experience and an impressive history of success in OWI cases, and we are ready to put our proven approach to work on your behalf.

Violence

Domestic Violence

If you have been arrested and charged with a domestic violence offense, it may feel as if the whole world has turned against you. Too often, domestic violence suspects are presumed to be guilty even before any evidence has been presented. At Wolff & Sonderhouse, LLP, we believe that all defendants are innocent until proven guilty through due process of law. We understand what is at stake when you have been charged with domestic abuse, and we will do everything possible to help you.

Family

Family Law

At Wolff & Sonderhouse, LLP, we also assist individuals and families dealing with divorce and child-related matters. Our attorneys know that family disputes can quickly become contentious and bitter, leaving behind broken hearts and devastated children. We work hard on behalf of our clients to develop creative, legally sound solutions that protect their best interests and those of their children. When necessary, we are also equipped to advocate for our clients at trial as well.

testimonials
  • Divorce Attorney Sonderhouse really took the time to listen to me and the concerns I had for my family. The divorce was very difficult for me and my children, his concern and compassion made the process easier. When it came time, he fought for me and the result could not have been better.

    - Becky M., Muskego, WI

  • I was charged with my second offense drunk driving. My first attorney wanted me to plead guilty to the offense. I went to Wolff & Sonderhouse for a second opinion, and I ended up hiring them. They charged less than my first attorney, and the case got dismissed!

    - Debby V., Elm Grove, Wisconsin

  • I was arrested for my third OWI. The defense attorneys at Wolff & Sonderhouse looked at my past record and were able to get it reduced to a first offense. I avoided a criminal conviction and did not have to serve any time in jail.

    - Diana M., Waukesha, Wisconsin

  • Attorney Peter Wolff took the time to really look at the facts of my case. He not only used his extensive experience to determine my culpability, but he also took the time to figure out how to minimize the impact of the crime on me, my employment, and my family.

    - Tom R., Brookfield, Wisconsin

  • The Attorneys at Wolff & Sonderhouse not only know the law, they know the Court System. They got me into a diversion program and were able to avoid a criminal conviction.
