FAQs about Wisconsin Lawyers

What do you call a lawyer who works for free?

A lawyer who works for free is called a pro bono lawyer or attorney. Sometimes lawyers will take on cases for free out of the goodness of their hearts. However, this isn’t often the case. Most pro bono Wisconsin lawyers work for pro bono or legal aid programs.

Do you pay lawyers upfront?

Often lawyers will request money upfront as a retainer fee. This ensures that both the lawyer and their client are serious about entering into a contract and acts as a form of security. Retainer fees can vary from lawyer to lawyer, so it’s best to speak with your local Wisconsin law firm to clarify any questions before fees roll in.

Is Wisconsin a no-tolerance state?

Yes, when it comes to driving under the influence, the state of Wisconsin has a zero tolerance policy. Any traceable amounts of federally restricted medications or substances in the blood—even 1 ng/mL (nanogram per milliliter)—will result in a criminal charge. However, if you have THC prescription, you will often still be charged with driving under the influence, as this is no excuse for affected driving. However, with a valid prescription the charges will be less. Use UpCounsel to help you find Wisconsin attorneys who can help you with your case.
