We Fight Felony and Misdemeanor charges

Our Appleton criminal defense attorneys defend felony charges from Class A to Class I. Class A felonies are one of the most serious crimes you can be charged with and if convicted you could face life in prison. Our attorneys also defend against misdemeanors from Class A to Class U which, while less serious, can still result in $10,000 in fines and 9 months in jail. Conviction of a felony or misdemeanor can also result in forfeiture of your second amendment right. Don’t wait. Contact us today for a free consultation.

I talked to a lot of different law firms and the attorneys at Grieve Law were the best. They knew all the answers to my questions and were always very professional. Best part was they got me out of my offense. I would highly recommend Grieve Law.

I must say I am very thankful Grieve Law was introduced into my life. I had Attorney Julia Westley represent me in a case for a WI OWI charge. Among all the work she did for me, what meant to me the most is she never doubted my word against the arresting officer's. Over the one year the case had been ongoing, she was able to get the charge dropped from a 3rd offense, to a 2nd offense, to the case being dismissed altogether. I am quite certain if I would have worked with a public defender, I would have been encouraged to plea guilty and accept the prosecutor's offer, which was basically agreeing to serve almost the maximum amount of jail time for a 2nd OWI offense (learn more about 2nd OWI Wisconsin penalties). Although the last 10 months have been beyond stressful, without Julia's hard work on my case, her honesty with me, and the thorough explanations she provided to me about my options and the possible resulting outcomes, I can say with almost complete certainty things would have turned out a lot differently; it is amazing what a conclusion can be when you have someone fighting for you from the very start all the way up until the end. I highly recommend Grieve Law and Attorney Westley.
