Our Mission: ”To empower, educate, and defend those charged with criminal offenses in Wisconsin and achieve the best possible outcome for their case.”Tracey Wood

In The News

An Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) charge, is a criminal offense that can haunt you for the rest of your life if not properly taken care of. While your case might feel hopeless, it is important to know that even the most serious charges can still be reduced or dismissed. There is hope for any case, no matter how severe. At Tracey Wood and Associates, we believe that you should be able to tell your side of the story without fear.

OWI Defenses

Educating yourself is the best thing you can do for your case, besides working with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Your best hope of fighting back comes from a strong defense. A well thought out defense strategy could mean the difference between prison time and walking away cleared of all charges. Here are some common OWI offenses:

  • No probable cause for arrest
  • Improper stop by police
  • No Miranda warnings
  • Officer did not follow proper sobriety test protocol
  • Challenging the officer’s testimony about your behavior
  • Improper testing or storage of blood alcohol samples
  • Medical conditions you may have
  • Improper interrogation
  • Inappropriate communication with you during arrest
  • Using a witness who saw things differently
  • Offering a valid explanation for your appearance or behavior
