A Drunk Driving Charge Involving A Death Requires Experienced Legal Representation

One decision can change a life — or several lives. If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident in which someone was killed and authorities have charged you with driving while intoxicated, you may face charges of vehicular homicide or vehicular manslaughter. You could face up to 25 years in prison — or 40 years if you had a prior drunk driving conviction on your record when the fatal accident occurred. You also risk losing your driver's license for up to five years.

The attorney you hire to defend you in such a serious case will likely have a significant impact on the outcome. At the law office of Christopher T. Van Wagner in Madison, I have represented hundreds of individuals in a wide range of drunk driving cases, including cases involving serious accidents.

Assertive OWI Defense From A Former Prosecutor

Not only have I defended a number of operating while intoxicated (OWI) cases, but my previous work as a state and federal prosecutor provides me with a clear understanding of the complexities involved in OWI homicide cases.

Enlisting the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer such as myself sooner rather than later is in your best interest. I will review every aspect of your arrest to determine if law enforcement authorities violated your constitutional rights or made mistakes in administering a roadside test or determining your blood alcohol content (BAC).

A Knowledgeable Attorney Who Is Committed To Your Best Interests

Often, circumstances warrant reduced charges, a suspended sentence or alternative sentencing. I welcome the opportunity to review the facts of your case during a free consultation. I will provide a candid assessment of what you might expect and recommend an effective course of action.
