Felony Attorney | Felony Representation in Wisconsin

Attorney John Paul Marchan is an experienced criminal defense lawyer and has successfully fought for felony charges of all types. The Law Offices of John Paul Marchan offers a free initial consultation to go over your case and answer your questions and discuss our fees.

Every criminal case begins with a police investigation. After the investigation, a suspect may be arrested and/or interrogated. In this situation, the interrogaters  will use the tactics that they are trained in to get statements or an admission of guilt from the suspect, even if the allegations are denied. The accused should not talk to the police before consulting with an expert criminal defense lawyer.

Avoidance of Conviction and a Prison Sentence

If someone is charged with a felony, it does not automatically mean that the person will end up with a felony on their record or that a prison sentence will be imposed. In fact, in the US, more than 90% of all criminal cases get resolved by plea bargain without actually going to trial. Getting an expert criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible to provide sound legal advice should be your top priority in order to avoid making irreversible mistakes.
