Traffic Violations

We understand that a conviction for even the most minor offense can affect your future. Whether you are a Wisconsin resident or a visitor to our state — we will mount a vigorous defense. Many times we can defend you without requiring your appearance in court.

We have built a "network of knowledge" consisting of professionals with expertise in various industries such as investigation, medical, engineering, vocational and financial experts. We utilize these experts to develop sound cases for our clients. We represent clients in municipal, state and federal courts, including the U.S. Court of Appeals and the Wisconsin Supreme Court.  Over the years our legal team has successfully handled cases pertaining to:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Disobeying traffic signals
  • Drunk Driving (DUI, DWI, OWI)

Disobeying Traffic Signals

At Penegor & Lowenberg we understand that even a minor traffic violation can have future repercussions.  We defend our clients in all traffic matters throughout Wisconsin.

DUI Defense

A DUI or OWI can turn into a very serious offense and can, depending on the circumstances even lead to murder or manslaughter charges.  Defending a drunk driving charge in Wisconsin is a complicated process as other factors have to be considered such as:

  • Previous OWI offenses both municipal and state
  • Driving over the speed limit while intoxicated
  • Children under 16 years of of age in the vehicle 
  • Refusing testing
  • Resisting an officer

We will vigorously defend our clients and investigate that none of your rights have been compromised:

  • Police cannot pull drivers over for no reason. They must have reasonable suspicion of something illegal.
  • The breathalizer machines must be calibrated properly and the officer must be trained in how to operate them.
  • Blood evidence must be carefully handled by police to avoid contamination. We will investigate whether your blood test was accurate and processed correctly. When necessary we will employ experts in blood alcohol analysis to assist in proving cases for our clients.
  • The ability to stand, balance and walk can be affected when undergoing a field sobriety test,  weather conditions, ground conditions, uneven ground, physical disabilities or visual impairments can affect the results. Officers sometimes improperly administer the tests or give unclear instructions to the driver.

Contact our office for an immediate assessment of your case.  If your driving privileges were canceled due to your Wisconsin OWI arrest you only have ten days to respond.
