Criminal Defense Lawyers in La Crosse

Good citizens make mistakes that lead to encounters with law enforcement. Police officers also make mistakes, and sometimes the result is a criminal charge or citation that must be vigorously challenged. If you or a family member has been arrested or come under investigation, working with the right defense attorney may be pivotal for your future. In this era of readily available background checks, it is more important than ever to make certain you understand all potential repercussions of a ticket or criminal conviction. Even if you are confident that jail time is not a possibility, every decision counts — and a qualified lawyer at our firm will help you make the best possible choices.


Our Leading Criminal Defense Attorneys:

OWI and DWI Charges, Misdemeanor, Felony, Juvenile and Traffic Defense

Our criminal defense team at Bosshard | Parke Ltd. includes a former prosecutor and several attorneys with extensive trial experience in Wisconsin’s municipal and state courts.

We are well-equipped to provide strategic defense representation if you are facing, for example:

  • A charge of operating a vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicant (OWI; sometimes called DWI or DUI), which carries harsh, life-altering penalties even for a basic first offense
  • Drug possession charges and even more serious charges of intent to deliver, sale of a controlled substance, manufacture or trafficking
  • A shoplifting or other theft charge
  • One or more traffic citations that may put your driver’s license and livelihood at risk or, at a minimum, cause a costly increase in your insurance rates
