Milwaukee criminal lawyers on both sides are limited to the presentation of relevant evidence. Hire the Shellow Group, we draft individually tailored motions that exclude the evidence that the prosecution wants to use to imprison you and allows your lawyer to present the evidence that helps you.

If a court finds that our client is not competent to strand trial, then the court has to dismiss the charges. The more serious the charge the less likely a court will find a criminal defendant incompetent to proceed. It shouldn’t be that way but it is. Hire the Shellow Group. Our extensive knowledge of psychiatric disease processes regularly intimidates the prosecutions own expert witnesses. Effective cross-examination of the state’s expert witnesses requires extensive preparation and research. Hire a law firm that knows what the state’s experts will say and how to discredit them.

Our Milwaukee Criminal Defense Lawyer will work tirelessly on your case

The Shellow Group prepares a case the way a doctor prepares for potentially life threatening surgery. Preparation takes time. The Shellow Group is a low volume practice where there is enough time and resources to prepare each case. Syndrome and other cases that involve mental health issues require a law firm that reads and understands the learned treatises that form the basis for the expert’s opinion. If the expert opinion is contrary to the defense theory of the case, it is imperative that skilled and sensitive attorneys figure out how to discredit the witnesses’ opinion without engaging in useless and threatening witness examinations filled with bravado as opposed to substance. If you want bravado and hot air, go elsewhere. If you want the witnesses examinations prepared with surgical precision, hire the Shellow Group.
