DUI Lawyers / OWI Lawyers

If you have been charged with drunk driving in Southeastern Wisconsin, then you need a team of lawyers that will mount a vigorous DUI defense (driving under the influence) or OWI defense (operating while intoxicated). The team at Rizzo & Diersen represents Wisconsin residents and out-of-state drivers charged with DUI or OWI in Wisconsin. In Wisconsin, the prohibited BAC (Blood / Breath Alcohol Concentration) level for OWI is 0.08 percent BAC.

A guilty verdict related to drunk driving in Wisconsin has serious consequences. A first offense DUI conviction results in an automatic six to nine-month driver’s license revocation. Also, Ignition Interlock Devices (IIDs) will be required for first-time and repeat offenders at or above a 0.15 blood alcohol level. Trust the DUI Attorneys at Rizzo & Diersen to protect your rights. To schedule a free consultation with experienced Wisconsin DUI defense lawyers, contact Rizzo & Diersen today.

Felony DUI Charges / Felony OWI Charges

Since July 1, 2010, anyone charged with a fourth OWI in a five-year period may be charged with felony OWI. Any OWI offense that has resulted in a significant injury or death will also be charged as a felony.

If you are facing felony OWI or felony DUI charges, your freedom is at stake. A felony drunk driving conviction could lead to a significant period of incarceration, probation, court-ordered alcohol treatment, driver’s license revocation, and other adverse DUI penalties.
