There are many ways that I can challenge the DWI charges against you. I will obtain the best result for you, your life and your family. One of the first things I look at is the set of facts and circumstances surrounding your arrest to see if the police officers followed proper procedure before, during and after your arrest. Many people assume that the police officers who pulled you over did everything properly and according to the law. This is not always true. Officers can and do make mistakes that can cost you your reputation, your job or your family if you don’t have an experienced attorney fighting for you. If the police did not have probable cause to arrest you or stop your vehicle we may be able to get the charges dismissed. Further, I will assess the facts surrounding your case, if there are evidentiary issues, you may want to take your case to trial and make the State prove its case against you beyond a reasonable doubt.

“All I can say is that Justin Schiks saved me from what was a train wreck waiting to happen. I had a different criminal attorney that gave me very bad legal advice and did a plea that I never should have done. I thought my fate was sealed, but Justin said nothing is ever in set stone. He was able to get my plea reduced; resulting in dramatically reduced my sentence. ”
