Criminal Defense

criminal-defense-attorney-green-bay-jonathan-olsonBeing arrested and charged with a criminal offense is a life-changing experience. Your reputation suffers and, depending on the nature of the offense, you may lose your job just based on the charges. If you are a parent in the process of divorce, custody and visitation may become issues.

The prosecution has an arsenal of resources at its disposal and more criminal defendants are convicted than are acquitted at trial. If convicted, you most likely will lose your freedom for weeks, months, years or even the rest of your life. Hefty fines are often imposed as well as orders for restitution. With so much at risk, you need the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney with a track record of success.

At Jonathan Olson & Associates in Green Bay, WI, we take each case seriously. We listen nonjudgmentally and compassionately to your side of the story. We obtain all police and investigative reports and conduct our own investigation. If consultants or experts are needed, we know who to call.

Our goal at all times is only to work on behalf of your best interest. If that means negotiating with the prosecution for reduced charges or lesser penalties, we are good negotiators. If going to trial is a better choice, we will proudly stand by your side and zealously put the prosecution’s evidence to rigorous testing.

Do not speak to anyone about your case until you call us. Do not answer questions posed by law enforcement, do not talk to your family or friends, do not talk to a cell mate or anyone with whom you are imprisoned. Inmates have a reputation for turning on each other and your words in confidence may be twisted and used against you.
