Milwaukee Criminal Traffic Defense Lawyers

When the Charges Are Far More Serious Than Speeding

At Courtney & Molter, our attorneys advise drivers who face criminal charges related to motor vehicle operations. While we help local and out-of-state motorists about their options for resolving speeding tickets and other moving violations, we also represent people who are charged with misdemeanors or even felonies related to drunk driving, hit-and-run accidents or other serious offenses.

To learn how the counsel of an experienced defense attorney can help expand your options toward a favorable resolution of traffic-related criminal charges, contact Courtney & Moulter in Milwaukee. Our law firm holds the AV rating* under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review system, and our attorneys are widely known for our experience and understanding of effective defense strategies in Wisconsin criminal traffic cases.

Our work for clients facing serious traffic charges starts immediately. The defense attorneys of Courtney & Molter can give you a good idea of your options based on such factors as the punishment range for your formal charge, where you were arrested, your previous driving record, and the charging practices specific to the community where your case will be determined.

The objective is to identify and pursue opportunities to minimize your exposure to punishment across the range of criminal consequences: jail time, license suspension or revocation, fines and other penalties. If you’re charged with a felony, we work toward reducing it to a misdemeanor. If you’re charged with a misdemeanor, we try to keep the case in traffic court. Because we have handled so many of these cases over the years, we have a good sense for the compromise potential of many specific criminal traffic charges, and we can advise and represent you accordingly.
