Milwaukee Child Abuse Attorneys
Facing Accusations? We're Here to Help.
If you've been charged with a child abuse offense, it's important that
you exercise your rights immediately. First, invoke your Fifth Amendment
protections and politely decline to provide any statements to law enforcement
officials. Anything you say at the beginning of your case, especially
during the arrest process and initial questioning, can profoundly affect
the outcome. Next, exercise your right to have an attorney represent you.
A skilled lawyer can provide advice and guidance on how to proceed, and
they will know how to work toward a favorable outcome on your behalf.

friends. That is why we are sensitive to your situation. We will sit down
with you, one-on-one, to learn about who you are as a person and the events

that there are two sides to every story, and sometimes a child abuse report
can stem from another person's nefarious intentions. We're here to provide
a compelling defense to fight your charges.

Child Abuse Charges We Defend Against in Milwaukee
Wisconsin has various laws concerning causing harm to a child. They include
offenses that involve physical abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, neglect.
These crimes can either be charged as misdemeanors and felonies. Because
a child or children might have been injured or hurt as a result of abusive
conduct, the State prosecutes these crimes to the full extent of the law.
The prosecution may seek severe penalties for a person found guilty of
an offense, which could mean a lengthy prison sentence and hefty fines.
Recognizing the substantial impacts a child abuse charge and conviction
can have on your life, our team will aggressively fight for you and will
go up against even the toughest opponents to protect your rights and freedoms.
We provide legal representation for various child abuse crimes, including:
Physical abuse: Either intentionally or recklessly causing bodily harm to a child is a
serious offense. Depending on the circumstances, it can be charged as
a Class I, H, F, E, or C felony. In Wisconsin, failing to stop another
person from physically abusing a child is also an offense, and can bring
either Class H or F felony charges.
Mental abuse: If a person harms the mental well-being of a child, or fails to report
someone engaging in such conduct, they could be charged with a Class F felony.
Sexual assault: Depending on their age, having sex with a child can be charged as a Class
C, B, or A felony.
Abandonment: Intentionally leaving a child anywhere that could result in harm to them
is a Class G felony offense.
Neglect: A person who does not provide necessities to a child, including care,
food, clothing, medical care, or shelter, can be charged with either a
Class A misdemeanor or a Class I, H, G, F, or D felony.
