Defending your rights.

In the United States, you are innocent until proven guilty. Although you may be facing criminal charges, you still have constitutional rights that protect you from government overreach and unfair prosecution. My job as a criminal defense attorney is to protect those rights and build the strongest possible defense.

Criminal Defense Services

The law office of Austin J. Milks handles a variety of criminal matters, including traffic citations, DUIs and other misdemeanor crimes. Use the tabs below to learn more about my services.

Janesville Criminal Defense

Criminal allegations in Wisconsin, even Class C misdemeanors, are serious and can lead to harsh fines and possible jail time. If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges, I recognize that you are likely going through one of the most stressful and challenging times of your life. As a Janesville criminal defense attorney, my goal is to put you and your family at ease, knowing that your case will be in capable hands. Some of the types of cases I represent include:

  • Underage drinking
  • Theft
  • Drug possession
  • Trespassing
  • Vandalism
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Assault and battery

If you have been charged with a crime, protect your future by calling our office today to speak with a criminal defense attorney. Together, we’ll look at the facts of your case and outline the best possible defense for you.

Janesville DUI Defense

In Wisconsin, is it illegal for a person to operate a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) by drugs or alcohol. This include driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or higher, while under the influence of any substance that impairs driving ability, or with any restricted controlled substances that can be detected in blood.

Criminal penalties for DUI/OWI vary depending on the number of prior offenses, and may include the revocation of your license, fines, jail time and mandatory community service. In addition, you will be required to undergo a mandatory drug and alcohol evaluation. Drivers under 21 years old who are caught driving with a BAC greater than .0% but less than .08% face a three-month license suspension and $200 fine.

Though it is unlikely that your OWI/DUI case will be completely dismissed, Wisconsin law allows for OWI charges to be reduced. In some cases, judges may issue hardship licenses for travel related to work, school, or treatment purposes.

If you have been charged with OWI/DUI in Janesville, WI, call our office today for a consultation. Together, we will look at the facts of your case and determine the best strategy for your defense.

Janesville Traffic Violation Attorney

Many drivers cited with a traffic violation choose to simply pay the fine rather than fight it in court. However, this often leads to increased insurance premiums and points on an otherwise stellar driving record, putting them at risk of losing their license if future traffic violations are committed. 

Before you pay your Janesville traffic ticket, call my office. For years, I have been helping Janesville residents fight traffic tickets, as well as out-of-state drivers. Some of the traffic violations I handle include:

  • Speeding
  • Driving with a revoked or suspended license
  • Reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Speeding in a school zone
  • Speeding in a construction zone

If you have received a traffic citation, contact my office today.

Protecting your future.

Most criminal defense attorneys focus on the past - where you were, what you did, who you were with. While those questions are important, I also want to know about your future.

Good criminal defense is really about protecting your future and giving you the best shot to put your criminal charges behind you so you can move forward with your life.

what to expect

It all starts with a phone call.

If you have been charged with a crime, DUI or traffic offense, you may not know where to turn. In fact, you may believe that you don't need a criminal defense lawyer, or that hiring a lawyer is too expensive. I encourage you to pick up the phone and give our office a call. The consultation is free, and it is the first step to dealing with, and overcoming, your criminal charges.
