At Hartley Pecora Law Offices, LLC, we provide expert criminal defense for individuals who have been formally charged or otherwise accused of all types of state or federal felonies, misdemeanors, municipal law violations, and probation/parole violations. Our experienced criminal defense attorneys are driven to aggressively defend the rights of our clients. Our Firm consists of Attorneys who have handled thousands of cases throughout their careers. We appear regularly in courtrooms throughout Southeastern Wisconsin, including Milwaukee County, Waukesha County, Racine County, Kenosha County, Washington County and Ozaukee County. We know how the criminal justice system works, the judges and prosecutors involved, and can greatly assist you in defending your case.

An aggressive defense of your case typically starts early in the proceedings including pre-charging conferences and bail hearings. After charges are filed, we examine the facts of the case and oftentimes file pretrial motions challenging such things as an unlawful arrest, an unlawful search, an improperly obtained confession, or otherwise confront weaknesses in the prosecution's case. These motions are typically resolved prior to trial and, if successful, may result in the dismissal of charges.

In the event that pretrial motions or a successful plea bargain does not successfully result in the resolution of the case our attorneys are always prepared to aggressively pursue the defense of our clients at jury trial.  We have litigated dozens of charges through the jury trial process including acquittals of such charges as attempted homicide, sexual assault, drug distribution, battery to law enforcement, recklessly endangering safety, battery, and disorderly conduct.
