Being accused, investigated, arrested, or charged with a crime is life altering.  All of your fundamental freedoms are put at risk.  The criminal justice system is dehumanizing.  Your freedom, reputation, finances, and future opportunities are threatened.  The consequences can stay with you for the rest of your life.  You are up against the resources and power of the State, of the Government.  We aim to tip that balance of power.

We bring empathy and understanding to the most difficult situations.  We understand the stress of being prosecuted or investigated and bring the hard-earned experience necessary to gather information, objectively consider the evidence, challenge any infringement of your Constitutional rights, and to zealously advocate for your best interest.  We give each and every client the individual attention necessary to achieve their best possible outcome.  You will get our best effort whether you are facing a first offense drunk driving charge, a homicide charge or white collar fraud charges.

Attorney Brophy, who heads our criminal defense practice, has over 15 years of criminal defense experience.  He was previously the Dane County District Attorney and is highly likely to have substantial experience and insight from both defending and prosecuting the same charges you are facing.  Attorney Brophy has earned an exceptional record of victories at trial and favorable settlement terms for his clients.  He enjoys a reputation that has resulted in numerous accolades including the highest AV© Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating for both competence and ethics, listing in The Best Lawyers in America©, inclusion as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer© by The National Trial Lawyers, and other accolades.
