OWI Lawyers Janesville, WI

Attorney Philip J. Brehm Is Committed to Protecting Your Driving Privileges

If you’ve been arrested for an OWI in Wisconsin, you’ll need a lawyer right away. Not many people are aware that their driving privileges can be administratively suspended by the Wisconsin DOT (Department of Transportation) even before they are charged with OWI (Operating While Intoxicated). Furthermore, time is of the essence. Typically, you have only 10 days to request a hearing to challenge this automatic license suspension.

Philip J. Brehm, has defended hundreds of people charged with drunk driving throughout Southern Wisconsin. Additionally, he will represent you in your hearing with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation against an OWI charge.

Wisconsin Drunk Driving Penalties

In Wisconsin, drunk driving is known as OWI (Operating While Intoxicated). However, many people still refer to the charge of OWI as DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) or DUI (Driving Under The Influence). No matter the label, these are very serious charges. Those charged with OWI can face:

  • License suspension
  • Fines
  • Jail time
  • Higher insurance premiums
  • Mandatory IID (Ignition Interlock Device) Use

Most people who lose their driving privileges will attempt to drive illegally. However, if you are caught driving on a revoked or suspended license, you might face even more serious penalties such as operating while suspended (OWS) or operating after revocation (OAR).
