Oconomowoc criminal defense attorney community supervision

The attitude surrounding marijuana and its use in the United States has changed drastically in the past 50 years. In just the past four months, four different states have passed laws decriminalizing cannabis, allowing for the use and possession of marijuana without fear of penalty. Many lawmakers from a couple of other states -- including Wisconsin -- are also hopeful that they can pass similar laws in the coming months. However, for the time being, marijuana is still illegal to possess, sell or grow in Wisconsin. While the severity of possession charges has lessened in some Wisconsin cities recently, the sale of marijuana still remains highly illegal and can result in serious consequences.

Cannabis Possession and Consequences for Selling

In the state of Wisconsin, laws relating to marijuana are relatively strict. Many states across the country have at least legalized the medicinal use of marijuana, but marijuana still remains fully illegal in Wisconsin. Only cannabidiol (CBD) is legal for medicinal use with a doctor’s recommendation.

Waukesha County family law attorney parenting plan

One of the most important aspects of any divorce involving children is creating your parenting plan to outline certain agreements that you and your spouse have made concerning the children. In Wisconsin, once you have entered a court order detailing things such as child support and parenting time, that order is legally binding and requires cooperation from both spouses. It can be extremely frustrating when your ex does not abide by the terms of the agreement that you have. However, as a court order, there are certain steps that you can take to combat noncompliance from your ex.  

Filing a Motion to Enforce Physical Placement Orders in Wisconsin

Any parent can file a motion to have their physical placement orders enforced in Wisconsin, as long as certain conditions are met. In your motion to the court, you must state your name and show that you have been awarded periods of physical placement of your child, the name of your child’s other parent and that you have had one or more periods of physical placement denied or substantially interfered with by the other parent. Once you have filed the motion with the court, you must then serve the motion to the other parent.

Waukesha County Attorneys for underage OWI

We can all remember the times when we were teenagers. Finally being able to drive meant finally being able to have more independence from your parents, but it also meant taking on more responsibility than ever before. Operating a vehicle while you are under the influence (OWI) of drugs or alcohol is not only highly irresponsible, but it is also highly illegal. In Wisconsin, underage offenders who are caught driving while they are intoxicated face a variety of penalties that could potentially become serious. Being charged with a crime does not necessarily mean you will be convicted of one, but a Wisconsin criminal defense lawyer can help make sure you are not.

Wisconsin’s “Not a Drop” Law

One of the most important pieces of evidence in any OWI case is the driver’s BAC or blood-alcohol concentration. For drivers who are over the age of 21, the legal BAC limit is 0.08. In most states, the legal BAC limit for drivers under the age of 21 is set at a much lower threshold and Wisconsin is no exception. Wisconsin’s underage OWI law, also known as their “Not a Drop” law, states that the legal BAC limit for those under the age of 21 is 0.00, or no amount of alcohol.

Waukesha County family law attorney high-asset divorce

Even though a divorce, for most people, is an emotional and often painful process, it is important to remember that it is first and foremost a legal process. Much of the divorce process is used to untangle the complicated web of finances that many couples find themselves in. Even so, it can be overwhelming for the average person to sort through compiled financial data, especially in the case of high-asset divorces. Divorces involving expensive or large assets can often also result in conflict, increasing the risk that spouses will be uncooperative with one another. Forensic accountants are often hired in high-asset divorces to analyze the couple’s financial records and in turn, ensure the property and debt division process is fair and balanced.

Some people do not realize the value that a forensic accountant can bring to a contested divorce, but there are various ways in which a forensic accountant can be helpful:

Waukesha County criminal defense attorney OWI

In most states, driving or operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is strictly forbidden and results in a criminal charge. Wisconsin, however, is unique in the fact that it is the only state to still classify a first-offense OWI as a driving offense, rather than a criminal offense. Instead of jail time as a punishment, a first-time OWI offender typically only faces around $735 in fines, a six- to nine-month driver’s license revocation, and a potential requirement for an ignition interlock device (IID) on their vehicles. However, charges can escalate quickly in OWI cases. Under certain circumstances, operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) can result in felony charges.

Fourth or Greater OWI Offense

If the OWI offense is your fourth or greater OWI offense, it will automatically be charged as a felony offense. A fourth OWI is charged as a Class H felony, which carries a possible jail sentence of 60 days to six years, a two- to three-year driver’s license revocation, and an IID requirement for vehicles. Charges for further offenses can range from Class G felonies to Class E felonies, for 10th or greater offenses.
