What to do if you’ve been accused of over-celebrating during Super Bowl

One of the biggest nights for DUI charges is Super Bowl Sunday. What starts out as a drink or two can often turn into many more either in celebration of or frustration with the final score. Maybe you’re still working through the fact that Green Bay is not in it this year. 

Regardless of the “why,” if you are pulled over and arrested for an OWI charge, the question is “now what?” The answer is to get yourself a DUI/ OWI defense lawyer immediately.

Mullen, Schlough & Associates S.C., specialize in DUI/ OWI cases and represent drivers arrested and charged with a DUI or OWI in Chippewa Falls, Chippewa County, Eau Claire County, Dunn County and Barron County. They are experts in Wisconsin OWI laws and will assist you with setting up a defense argument for DUI/ OWI crimes that you can present in court.

A criminal offense is determined when the individual’s blood alcohol content is above the lawful level range of 0.05% and 0.08%. If the level is 0.12%, there is even an aggravated classification in specific jurisdictions. Either way, an individual can be sentenced and should secure a DUI/OWI defense attorney as soon as the driver is accused of driving while impaired.

An OWI defense lawyer is responsible for clearly explaining the DUI charges to a driver and recommending the best plan to follow. The DWI law firm should organize details and handle the administrative procedures involved to make sure that nothing falls through the cracks and so the client can feel at ease. 

A DUI/ OWI defense lawyer has a responsibility to help you defend your rights and status against any proof the prosecution may anticipate introducing. 


  • You may not have to plead guilty and get a large number of these charges dropped or reduced early in the process
  • Your DWI attorney may file a motion to overthrow his or her client’s statements if arrested or suggest a plea bargain or sentence bargain
  • Your criminal law attorney may even schedule an evidentiary hearing in order to reveal the evidence the persecution holds against his/her client

When conducting the cross-examination, it is crucial to gather all the proof available at the time of arrest so they have the option to compare with the witness’ testimony. When arguing DUI/ OWI cases and criminal offense, the state and prosecution can always prove a defendant guilty.  The state witness is testifying on direct assessment by the prosecutor but the DUI/ OWI defense lawyer focuses on the questions being posed so as to counter the prosecution’s argument. 

The court process for a DUI offense can be very long for this type of conviction.  If you are accused of driving under the influence (DUI) and operating while intoxicated (OWI) crimes, you may have to endure many hearings beginning with the Department of Motor Vehicles and concluding with a final hearing at the County or State Court.

DUI / OWI defense lawyers should have a great understanding of their particular state’s drunk driving laws. Our OWI criminal defense attorneys have expertise in Wisconsin DUI laws and help our clients understand their rights and options while assisting their negotiations with prosecution. Hiring a defense law firm such as Mullen, Schlough & Associates S.C. means you will have highly organized OWI specialists with competent critical thinking skills on your side to best assess your best options.

Over 1.4 million drivers have been arrested for a DUI (driving under the influence), DWI (driving while intoxicated) or an OWI (operating while intoxicated with drugs, alcohol or medication), according to the F.B.I.  We can help you if you are one of these statistics.
