Representing Wisconsin Individuals Facing Prosecution
If you or a loved one has recently been charged with a criminal offense, it is vital that you find a lawyer who can thoroughly investigate what happened and prepare a strong defense. For instance, if you are facing prosecution for a drug offense, it is possible that law enforcement has not followed required procedures in seizing evidence that it plans to use against you. To search your home or you, police usually must have a valid warrant and probable cause. If an unlawful search or seizure occurred, this may be a violation of your constitutional rights. With the help of a capable attorney, like William J. Reddin, you may be able to argue that evidence unlawfully obtained cannot be introduced at trial.
Many crimes, such as most white collar offenses, require that a defendant had a specific mental state when he or she committed the crime. If you did not intend to carry out the relevant conduct, you may have a defense that you lacked the state of mind necessary to be held liable. For example, you might have been charged with bank fraud because you were an employee of a corporation that allegedly committed an illegal action. Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to argue that you lacked any knowledge that the fraud was occurring and could not reasonably have been expected to be aware of it. This is only one of the countless ways that a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer may be able to help you.
Tenacious Support When Marriages Dissolve
In addition to defending people facing prosecution, we also know how to assist individuals in challenging family law issues. Terese J. Singer has two decades of experience in guiding clients through the complicated processes of divorce and child custody.
Dissolving a marriage in Wisconsin can be an amicable or contentious process, depending on the past history and future goals of the spouses involved. In a “default divorce,” the two parties can file a marital settlement agreement that resolves issues such as property division, alimony, and even matters affecting their children. After 120 days, the proceeding will be finalized.
If the parties cannot easily reach an agreement, a full hearing before a judge may be required to untangle disputes regarding income, assets, and the best interests of any children whom the spouses share. These proceedings will typically require both individuals to reveal a great deal of information regarding their income and lifestyles. When children are involved, a judge must carefully analyze what parenting structure would be in their best interests before making a determination regarding support and custody. Usually divided between the parents, custody consists of physical and legal components. While physical placement refers to the right to spend time with a child, legal custody refers to the right to make crucial decisions regarding the child’s upbringing. Our lawyers are committed to helping clients find a resolution to divorce that is comprehensive, efficient, and as durable as possible.
