Waukesha Drug Crimes Defense Attorneys

New Berlin Drug Charges Defense Lawyers

Criminal Lawyers Help Clients Charged with Drug Possession or Distribution in Brookfield and New Berlin

For more than four decades, the battle against illegal drugs and the illicit use of controlled substances has been a major focus for law enforcement entities at both the federal and state levels. The controversial "War on Drugs" has led to the enactment of strict laws and harsh penalties for those convicted on charges related to illegal drugs. While the public opinion and the general attitude regarding certain substances—such as marijuana—has largely softened in recent years, other drugs such as cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and other opioids still cause serious problems for communities nationwide, including here in southeastern Wisconsin.

At the Waukesha law firm of Bucher, Wolff & Sonderhouse, LLP, we know that just a single conviction on a drug charge could affect your future for many years to come. If you are facing allegations related to illegal drugs or any other controlled substances, our attorneys are ready and willing to help you protect your rights and your best interests.

Muskego Criminal Lawyers for Controlled Substances Charges

Police departments and district attorneys in Wisconsin take a very hard line against illegal drugs, and the state's drug laws are among the strictest in the country. In addition, prosecutors are not afraid to seek the maximum punishment for drug offenders. With this in mind, it is critical to enlist the help of a qualified drug crimes defense lawyer as soon as possible after your arrest.

Attorney Peter Wolff is a former member of the City of Brookfield Police Department where he spent part of his law enforcement career as an undercover officer conducting drug-related surveillance and searches. He and Attorney Ronald Sonderhouse also have more than 40 years of experience helping clients defend against all types of drug charges. With our background, we are equipped to provide the guidance and representation you need.

At Bucher, Wolff & Sonderhouse, LLP, we handle cases involving all types of illegal drugs and controlled substances, including but not limited to:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine
  • Fentanyl
  • Ecstasy/MDMA
  • Prescription drugs

Whether you have been charged with the possession of illegal drugs or you are accused of manufacturing, distributing, or delivering drugs, our team has the knowledge, experience, and resources to help you.

Protecting Your Rights in Menomonee Falls and Oconomowoc

The severity of drug-related charges in Wisconsin will usually depend on the type and amount of the drug in question. In most cases, a first offense for low-level possession is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and $5,000 in fines. A repeat offense is usually a felony, which carries penalties for a conviction of up to 3.5 years in jail and $10,000 in fines. Charges of possession with intent to manufacture, distribute, or deliver, however, are always handled as felonies.

At Bucher, Wolff & Sonderhouse, LLP, we know that there are many possible ways to defend against drug-related charges. In some situations, our attorneys could challenge the legality of a police search or the probable cause on which a warrant was issued. In other situations, we might contest the prosecution's claim that you were knowingly in possession of drugs. The right approach will depend on the unique circumstances of your case, but you can depend on our firm to remain at your side every step of the way.
