 – from David N. in St. Francis, WI

Question Details:

I live in Illinois but have several outstanding fines, and maybe even a warrant, in Wisconsin. Does it matter which state I hire my lawyer in?

Family Law Attorney Response:

You need an attorney who practices in the state where the offenses occurred.

While some attorneys are licensed to practice in multiple states, you want to choose an advocate who has a deep understanding of local ordinances and institutions. Wisconsin circuit courts operate differently from Illinois courts, and traffic laws can vary by municipality.

Going local will not only help save you time and money, but is also likely to improve the outcome of situation.

As for the offenses, you need to choose a Wisconsin lawyer as quickly as possible — warrants reach across state lines. Give us a call or complete the case evaluation form.
