Creative and Aggressive Criminal Defense

We Demand Justice. And that means we demand victory. These are not empty words for us - they are words we live by. Demanding justice goes far beyond the court room. It means blocking out significant time to work on your case to allow us to learn every detail about your case and figure out the best plan of attack. It means treating our clients like people, and doing whatever it takes - for however long it takes - to get the best outcome for each client we represent. It means fighting for what's right, even when the fight is hard. Here at Birdsall Law Offices, all of our Wisconsin Criminal Defense Attorneys Demand Justice. If you have been charged with a crime and want a lawyer who will fight and win for you, contact us immediately.

Our demand for justice, rather being illustrated by "experience", "awards", or "certifications", can be seen through the successful outcomes we have achieved for each of our clients. From out right, not guilty verdicts, to dismissals of serious felonies, our Wisconsin Criminal Defense Attorneys have stood up for, among other things, the constitutional rights of their clients and continue to be warriors in pursuing justice.
