APPEALS ATTORNEYS: Attorneys displaying the Appeals icon represent people who have already been convicted of a drunk driving (or related) offense, and want to appeal the conviction or sentence.
Drunk driving cases are heard in Wisconsin Circuit or Municipal courts, either of which is referred to as a lower court to the Court of Appeals.
The Wisconsin Court of Appeals is an intermediate court, and the Wisconsin Supreme Court is the highest court in the state.
Administrative hearings, while termed "hearings" are not held in Circuit Courts; rather, they are held at the administrative office of the administrative judge. Administrative hearings review only one aspect of a drunk driving offense: the driver's license of the person accused. The administrative hearing is completely separate from the judicial hearing in the circuit court, and the results of the administrative hearing do not affect the judicial hearing.
