Wisconsin is a concealed carry state. However, it's against the law to have a gun in your possession in certain circumstances, such as during a traffic stop for drunk driving –– even if you have a concealed carry permit.
Stangl Law Offices has a successful track record defending clients accused of criminal gun or weapons charges either as an independent offense or as an enhancer to another crime.
Murder is one of the most serious crimes that you could be charged with in Wisconsin or anywhere else in the United States. Being convicted of murder carries with it extremely heavy, life-altering consequences. If you are under investigation for a murder charge or have been arrested, it is imperative that you hire a skilled Wisconsin homicide attorney immediately.
Attorney Stangl has successfully defended homicide and attempted homicide cases in Wisconsin. He understands what's at stake for his clients and knows what it takes to obtain a favorable outcome. He will work aggressively to help minimize the penalties or to fight your charges in court.
First, be polite and cooperative. Arguing, struggling or fighting will never make the situation better. Rarely, if ever, is a person able to convince an officer to stop an arrest. Remain silent! Finally, call a lawyer as soon as possible.
More often than you think, innocent people get accused of committing crimes. Also, people who may have committed one crime often get accused (sometimes wrongfully) of committing additional and more serious crimes.
As the accused, you have a constitutional right to counsel. You are always better off having a lawyer learn about the accusation and then discussing it with you to develop a strategy for responding to the charge.

I am a combat veteran of both Afghanistan and Iraq and upon my return to the states in found myself in serious legal trouble, charged with multiple serious felonies which arose out of an alleged domestic situation. I was very scared and troubled by the allegations and began to search for a criminal defense attorney worth experience in defending difficult cases, a winning history and great reputation. I had heard about attorney Stangl and the more that I learned about him the more I was convinced that he was the only defense attorney in wanted to represent me. He is extremely dedicated and tenacious and has a great respect for veterans. For over a year, he fought tirelessly for me. One of my felony cases was dismissed and the other very serious felony charges were amended to misdemeanors. The state wanted me to go to jail and make sure I could never legally possess a firearm again. Pat argued persuasively that I should not have to do any jail and that I should be allowed to have my misdemeanor convictions expunged upon successful completion of my probation. Without pat and his hard work and dedication I would not have an opportunity to start my life over with a clean slate. He is a fantastic attorney and I recommend him highly.
