Criminal Defense

There is a lot at stake when you have been charged with a crime. Depending on the seriousness of the alleged offense, you may face fines, probation or time in prison. There are also significant collateral consequences to consider. For example, a permanent record could mean difficulty gaining employment or housing in the future, cause the loss of professional licenses and even impact child custody rights after a divorce.

With so much on the line, you need to carefully consider whom you will hire to defend you. The right legal representation could mean the difference between your freedom and a very difficult future.

At Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C., our lawyers help clients address a range of felony and misdemeanor charges throughout Wisconsin, ranging in severity from traffic violations to murder and homicide.

Resolving Your Criminal Charges

We have an extremely successful track record of obtaining reduced charges and dropped/dismissed charges. This means that many of our clients who were originally charged with felonies avoided felony conviction, and those who were originally charged with misdemeanors walked away without any type of criminal record.

While our attorneys are skilled in obtaining these results, it is important to note that there are no guarantees in the criminal justice system. We cannot guarantee results, but we can guarantee that we will do everything in our legal power to help you mitigate the consequences of your charge.

As your case proceeds, we will help you weigh the risk of trial versus accepting a plea deal. Backed by decades of experience, we understand what constitutes a fair deal and when to fight at trial. The decision, however, will always be up to you. If you advance to trial and the results are unsatisfactory, we are also qualified to help you review your appellate rights.
