DUI Charges are Serious. Don’t Rollover, We Wont!

“We thought I was going to prison…Huber and probation let me still live my life.”

“I was on my 4th OWI within 5 years with a severely high BAC and was looking at prison time.  Even the morning of my sentencing date we thought I was going to prison.  With your hard work the judge decided on Huber with probation.  I just wanted to give you a huge thank you for your hard work.  Since then I have graduated college, bought a condo, got a new job and have been sober 3 and a half years now.  I get off probation in 2 weeks.  If I would of went to prison my life would of went completely backwards and with getting Huber and probation it let me still live my life to try and move forward and succeed in life.  Thanks again for all of your hard work.”

“The penalty for OWI is severe…but for me they were minimized because of the services of Attorney Nathan Dineen. “

“If you are looking for warm and fuzzy, look for someone else. If you want someone who is straight to the point, knowledgeable of OWI laws, how the system works, and wants to beat the court, Mr. Dineen is your guy. He is up front and honest. There are no surprises. OWI is what he does and he knew everything there was to know as we navigated Milwaukee County’s court system together. He was responsible for me getting a minimum sentence. I spent a few hours in the House of Corrections, and while talking to both other inmates and corrections officers alike, I repeatedly heard, “You must have had a great lawyer.” It was at that moment that I realized how much Attorney Nathan J. Dineen had truly helped me. The penalty for OWI is severe. It is expensive, stressful, and time consuming. There is no way around those facts, but for me they were minimized because of his services.”

The Best Counsel Available! Period.

In the state of Wisconsin, there is no one as knowledgeable and experienced in the processes of collecting and testing blood and the requirements of the law. Our trust in his abilities was well founded; he was honest and not hesitant to fight for the best possible outcome.

Saved My CDL and My Job!

Nate saved me. Its as simple as that. I made a bad call and nate got me out of it. We took it to trial and the prosecutor caved. I would recommend him to anyone. True professional. He handled everything from A – Z. Couldn’t be happier with him.

Highly Recommended DUI Attorney!

Fought my case aggressively and ended up saving my license. He was with me every step of the way and was always available to answer my questions. I would recommend him to anyone in the same unfortunate situation I was in.

“A Real Fighter! My Job Was On The Line & Attorney Dineen Came Through! Not Guilty!”

“I highly recommend Attorney Dineen. From the very start he was down to earth, respectful, and on top of everything. My job as a traveling salesman was on the line so I needed the very best. I meet with a few attorneys but chose Mr. Dineen because his knowledge and experience was unparalleled. He is definitely not cheap but in my case he was worth every penny. After a day long trial my case resulted in a Not Guilty verdict! I would highly recommend Attorney Dineen to anyone who needs or wants to fight their DUI charge!”

“Case Dismissed!”

My poor judgment put me right in the middle of a nightmare – it was the most humiliating experience of my life. I was charged with a DUI and several road violations. I’m so thankful I hired Dan to represent me – without going to trial, all charges against me have been dismissed. It’s an experience that I never plan on repeating, but if you find yourself having made a poor decision – call Dan, he’ll take the very best care of you! I will always be thankful, and never forget!
