Milwaukee Criminal Defense Practice Areas

The Milwaukee criminal defense lawyers of Hart Powell, S.C. have the experience to defend our clients against any charges they are facing. We are well equipped to defend our clients in federal and state courts as well as appellate court appeals.

Federal Charges We Handle:

  • Bank and Mail Fraud: Federal prosecutors have an endless supply of resources and you need someone strong to counter cases from the FBI and DEA.
  • Drug Trafficking and Conspiracies: there is a host of invasive methods the federal agencies will employ against you. You need an experienced attorney to analyze your case thoroughly.
  • Gun Crimes: firearm rights have seen over 20,000 laws and regulations in recent years. It is inevitable that good people will get caught in the confusing web.
  • Internet Sex Crimes: an internet sex crime can destroy your whole life. Your words can be twisted completely out of context and used against you.
  • Medicare and Healthcare Fraud: A trusted and experienced attorney can effectively represent and build an iron case against any kind of healthcare of Medicare fraud.
  • Perjury and Obstruction of Justice: If you are accused of making false statements under oath, you could be facing perjury charges.
  • Pre-Indictment Investigations: Any statement made to federal agencies without legal representation builds a stronger case against you.
  • RICO Conspiracies: Instated to fight against organized crime, the RICO act is used to accuse two or more people of criminal conspiracy.
  • Trade Secrets: potentially breaking a non-disclosure agreement is a serious charge and requires astute legal representation.
  • Trademark and Copyright Infringement: Laws regarding trademarks and copyright infringement are oftentimes vague and confusing.

State Charges We Handle:

  • Armed Robbery: A potential felony conviction carries fines, and years in prison.
  • Domestic Violence Offenses: Domestic violence accusations can ruin reputations, careers, and families.
  • Drug Crimes: An attorney is the only way to combat jail sentences and debilitating fees of a drug charge.
  • DUI/OWI: A DUI conviction can destroy any potential career options and affect your reputation.
  • Fraud: Fraud is so harshly punished even intending to commit fraud can land someone in jail.
  • Homicide and Murder Charges: Homicide and murder charges are complex and near impossible to combat alone.
  • Probation and Parole Revocations: Probation and parole requirements are complicated and a fair trial is crucial to combat any probation or parole revocation.
  • Theft/Burglary: Theft related charges could cost thousands of dollars in fines and up to 20 years in prison.
  • Sex Crimes: Damaging to one’s reputation and family, a sex crime accusation cannot be taken lightly.

If you have been charged with any variety of federal or state crimes, you need an experienced attorney representing you. Remember, speaking with any law enforcement or federal agents can only build a stronger case against you. Make sure you speak with an attorney before making any official statements.

Does It Make Me Look Guilty to Hire An Attorney Immediately Following an Accusation?

Hiring an attorney after being charged with a criminal accusation is vital. You want to make sure you are getting sound legal advice from the beginning of the process. Taking an accusation lightly most often leads to excessive fines or even prison. Federal prosecutors and law enforcement will start building a case against you the moment you are charged. Any statement made after the initial charge is built into the case against you. Having an attorney with you from the beginning can make sure you case stays valid, and your rights are upheld.

Wisconsin Criminal Law

The Wisconsin court system sees a lot of cases each year. In 2016 alone, there were 852,828 cases opened across the state. Of these, there are 122,949 pending a result. These stats were taken from the Wisconsin Court’s public website caseload statistics. As many trials can take up to two or three years to pan out, prosecutors use this to their advantage. Federal agents and law enforcement wait for their suspects to let their guard down before, sometimes illegally, seizing evidence. Hiring an attorney can ensure that your rights and freedom are constantly their priority so you can focus on clearing your name.

It is no mystery that the trial process is difficult. In fact, there is a statistical map of Wisconsin created by the Measures of Justice showcasing the counties of Wisconsin by a percentage of how many felony charges were actually resolved by trial at court. The largest was Grant County, WI, with 5.67% percent of felony charges going all the way to trial. This may surprise many of us who grew up watching shows like Law and Order, which dramatized the criminal justice system. In reality, a lot of cases are settled out of court or just seen before a judge without a jury. Knowing which legal path your charges will be taking is crucial to ensuring that your rights are upheld. Having an experienced attorney help guide your case is the only way to be informed on the changing landscape of justice.

While the client did allow the police to enter his home, resulting in the discovery of the marijuana growth, Craig S. Powell argued that the client’s consent was tainted by one officer’s illegal entry to the client’s enclosed backyard.

  • Gun charge dismissed. Client came to Geoff Misfeldt the day before a plea and sentencing hearing, facing months in jail.

  • Pre-charge investigation saves client from homicide charge. Client was threatened with being charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. Geoff Misfeldt traveled hours to inspect the vehicle and meet with the prosecutor.

Even though the government resisted, the team at Hart Powell, S.C. convinced the Judge to vacate the prison sentence. The Court set restitution at zero, and the client was placed on probation.Details
  • Powell wins extended supervision revocation hearing. Client was on extended supervision for an old drug offense, and was taken into custody based on supposed allegations of sexual assault by his ex-girlfriend’s daughter. The Department of Corrections moved to revoke client’s supervision and send him back to prison for 5 years. Powell contested the allegations at a revocation hearing, and through cross-examination of the Department’s witnesses established that no assault had actually occurred. Client was released from custody and no new charges were filed.Details
  • Probation revocation victory.

Grieve Law is an award-winning Wisconsin criminal defense law firm staffed with ex-prosecutors in multiple offices serving clients from Milwaukee, Waukesha County, Madison, Glendale, Racine, West Bend, Mequon, and elsewhere across Wisconsin. Unlike most other lawyers who say that they do defense work, we are criminal defense attorneys who focus our practice exclusively on defending drunk driving (OWI/DUI) and criminal cases.

Don't trust your life to some general practice lawyer. DUI’s and criminal cases are not something that we do: they are basically everything that we do! Free no-obligation consult with our team of award-winning former state prosecutors for honest answers is just a call away.

We know
because we were prosecutors.

Tom Grieve, the firm's managing attorney and founder, is a former state prosecutor and is not the only ex-prosecutor at the firm. We love hiring attorneys from both sides of the wall to bring as many perspectives to fight your case as aggressively as possible. The State of Wisconsin likes it when you choose the run-of-the-mill fee to plea™ lawyers who don't even know how to analyze and defend cases instead of experienced criminal attorneys:

Drunk driving & Wisconsin OWI defense

Your bad weekend doesn’t make you a bad person. Many alleged Wisconsin first offense OWI drivers believe the cops’ “just a ticket” myth. 99% of 2nd OWI offenders we interact with retain a lawyer. They learned the hard way: every DUI is worth fighting.

Our OWI (DUI, DWI) lawyers have litigated drunk driving cases at trial including:

Our attorneys are not only trained in the same tests as police officers, many of us are actually instructors. The cops must walk the line. If they don’t follow very specific rules, your charge could get dismissed.

Drug Charges: Just say no to fee to plea™ lawyers.

Grieve Law has successfully argued many nuances of Wisconsin drug law, including:

From misdemeanors...

Anyone can see misdemeanors on your Wisconsin criminal record on CCAP. felonies

Nobody wants to check the “convicted felon” box on employment paperwork.

Domestic Violence

Most of our domestic violence clients are two partners looking to drop the charges together. There are often paths to beat domestic violence charges, even when one partner is fabricating a story.

Your Wisconsin Gun Lawyer

Tom Grieve is uniquely qualified to deal with Wisconsin gun charges. He has been published multiple times on various topics in Conceal Carry Magazine, is a lifetime NRA member, avid hunter, gun owner, and keynote speaker for the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) to assist on conceal carry cases, self-defense cases, intoxicated possession of a firearm cases, or if you are looking to restore second amendment rights. Our gun lawyers are experienced in navigating Wisconsin gun laws to get charges reduced or dropped.

Downtown Milwaukee Criminal Defense: Know the costs

In the downtown Milwaukee area, the costs for a criminal defense attorney can vary based upon the charge, the county, and other relevant factors. The total cost of your case is a very real concern and any attorney you work with should be extremely forthcoming with regards to the total cost. Attorneys have a legal obligation to represent a client’s best interest at all times. During a free consultation with Grieve Law, be sure to ask what the projected total cost would be. Our intake attorney will be straightforward and honest with you. 

Will OWI attorneys take installment monthly payments? 

Yes! Our attorneys will work with you in the free consultation to provide you with projected cost as well as an estimate of what your financing options look like. If you choose to proceed with our representation, we accept all forms of payment including, cash, credit, and checks. Grieve Law will work with you to find a payment plan that works best for your budget. Generous payment plans help ensure you have an award-winning defense attorney on your side at a price you can afford. 

Are payment plans available on any type of case?

Regardless of the crime charged, our attorneys will work to ensure a reasonable and affordable payment plan is fit for your case. Our attorneys work with all financial situations to ensure you have your day in court with an experienced defense attorney by your side.

Each case is unique and so are the fees associated with them. Grieve Law works with each client to come to a fair and reasonable payment plan that works for your unique situation. The cost of retaining an attorney with a proven history fails to compare to the cost of fighting the legal system alone.

Our award-winning team of defense attorneys will work with you to find the strongest defense possible in order to get you the best outcome for your case.
