February 5, 2015: OWI-1st/PAC-1st (with .20 breath test result) Reduced to Reckless Driving in Milwaukee County

This was an amazing result in a case with some very difficult facts. Initially stopped for multiple traffic violations by a veteran police officer (a lieutenant, no less), our client, DP, proceeded to fail the roadside field sobriety tests and blew a .20 on the breath test done at the police department. When all was said and done, things were looking very bleak for DP. But as an out-of-state resident who traveled extensively for his job, DP simply could not have a drunk driving conviction on his record. It would have ruined him professionally. He had to do everything he could to prevent that from happening. After extensive research, DP turned to our firm to save his career. After slugging it out in court for more than a year, Attorneys Singh and Melowski ultimately did enough damage to the prosecutor's case to negotiate a very favorable outcome, due primarily to deficiencies in the breath test machine they were able to expose. Under the terms of the deal, DP completely avoided a drunk driving conviction by having that charge reduced to Reckless Driving. DP never lost his license for even a single day and suffered no employment repercussions. He couldn't have been happier with the result. DP was so happy, in fact, that he posted a glowing review of our work in his case on the independent lawyer rating website The review is titled "Amazing Results" and can be read by clicking the following link:
