OWI 1st Offense City of Wauwatosa Municipal Court Reduced to Reckless Driving

Updated: Mar 12

Long, difficult case. Case started in Wauwatosa Municipal Court. After consultation with client, Attorney Dan Skarie strategically decided to bypass Municipal Court and proceed to Milwaukee County Circuit Court. Leading up to trial, both parties engaged in significant pretrial litigation, involving the use of expert witnesses and Daubert hearings challenging the experts proposed testimony.

Eventually, over two years after the client was arrested and accused of drunk driving, Dan was able to convince the prosecution to amend the case from drunk driving to reckless driving without the need for a trial. Client was ecstatic.
