Milwaukee OWI Defense Attorney

Caught driving under the influence? Call (414) 375-0797 Immediately!

OWI, or drunk driving in the state of Wisconsin, consists of operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher. To determine if you are violating the legal limits of blood alcohol concentration, police officers will use field sobriety tests as well as chemical tests. An individual who has a previous drunk driving conviction however, is prohibited from driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.02%. Also, under the Zero Tolerance Law, anyone under the age of 21 is prohibited from driving with any trace of alcohol in their systems. It is also illegal in the state of Wisconsin to drive while under the influence with a minor in the vehicle.

If you are convicted of an OWI for a second time or repeated offense then it is mandatory to have an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) implanted into your vehicle. This device makes it so that the car will not start if you have a certain level of alcohol in your system. For a repeated OWI offense you be incarcerated anywhere from 5 days to 6 months and have to pay a fine anywhere from $300 to $1,100. Even further, your licenses with be suspended for a year or so and your car will either be immobilized or have to have the IDD system installed.

Drunk Driving Laws in Wisconsin

Have you been arrested for or charged with OWI in or around Milwaukee? In Wisconsin, drunk driving is called OWI, or operating a motor vehicle while under the influence. The influencing factor may be alcohol, illegal drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, legal prescription drugs, or over-the-counter drugs which could cause impaired driving. I can help you fight these charges and work to avoid the inhibiting penalties that are connected with them.

By being given a driver's license in Wisconsin, you have given your implied consent to be tested for sobriety if stopped by a police officer. Penalties for OWI drunk driving include driver's license suspension, possible jail time, fines, and court costs and the penalties become more severe with each offense. By consulting with me, Jason, from the Law Offices of Jason D. Baltz, we can determine how best to proceed and actively resist an OWI or drunk driving conviction. I can help minimize the charges and consequences you may be facing with tough criminal defense and proactive legal counsel. If you or someone you know has been charged with OWI in Milwaukee, or in the counties of Waukesha, Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Jefferson, Dane, or Ozaukee, please contact me for legal assistance.
