Attorney Peter D. Ploetz will meet with you personally, and discuss your options and objectives in a confidential legal environment, not in a disinterested corporate setting of uncertainty. Informed lawyer-client communication is of primary concern. If you exercise your option to proceed to trial, fees and expenses will be clearly defined. The matter of proceeding to trial will be well thought out with your best interests in mind given the particular facts of the case. A blind, uninformed endeavor of trial for the sake of a trial is not the standard practice at Peter D. Ploetz S.C. Your best interests are. Preparation and a firm understanding of the facts and relevant law is a must. A clearly defined resolution objective is best. Sometimes, in light of the facts of the case, witness difficulties, and/or the defining burden of proof, it is simply not in the client’s best interests to proceed to trial. The stakes are high. A clearly defined resolution objective is best. Minimizing any impact through a reduction of the initial charge might be the most direct, desired approach. Especially with Drunk Driving/OWI charges, if an amendment is not legally possible due to the particular facts of the case, perhaps a focused alternative resolution course of action is wisest, rather than an uncertain, go for broke approach of a jury trial with its expense and resultant consequences. Whatever the scenario, clearly defined fees are set solely to meet the client’s objective in resolving the charge. In other words, at PloetzDefense the retainer fee is suited solely to the client’s objective, nothing else.
