5.0 stars 73 totalReview Dennis Melowski
First and foremost I would like to give thanks to Attorney Melowski for saving my CDL which in turn allowed me to keep my job. In April of 2015 I was in an auto accident which resulted in a shattered hip, 6 broken ribs and multiple cuts and bruises. When the police arrived, I was asked to do a breathalyzer however could not perform due to broken ribs. Next thing I remember was waking up 3 days later and was told that I refused a blood test and the officer had obtained a court order . This would have been a 2nd OWI if convicted. Because of Attorney Melowski's expertise and all of the guidelines that the police were out of compliance with, Melowski was able to plea bargain both citations which resulted in me keeping my CDL and no alcohol related offenses. One of the things that surprised me the most was that anytime I called his office, he would either personally answer the phone or if he was in court he would call me back within a couple of hours. I would definitely give Melowski 10 stars!!
After searching for an attorney and making numerous phone calls to different lawyers to represent my case for 1st time DUI, I came across Dennis. I had been stopped for failure to yield, resulting in being pulled over and arrested on suspicion of OWI. After receiving my results of BAC of .196, there was no doubt I needed the best. My job was dependent on reputation as well as driving privileges. We talked with Dennis and immediately he had a plan for what was next and what he could do to help. We received the police officer's dashboard camera and began fighting our case that there was no traffic violation committed. We felt we had a legitimate chance of getting the case dropped based upon the evidence. Although I didn't want to lose my license, by keeping the current judge who would suspend them, Dennis felt he would have a better chance of success. His legal opinion always had the best reasoning. Through the whole process, Dennis kept me informed, but never did I have to make a statement or be present for a hearing. He handled everything. We thought the process could take years if it were to be turned over in my favor. I received an email approximately 9 months after the case began that ALL charges were dismissed. It was as if the day had never happened.
Dennis was easy to work with, informative, and assured me he had everything under control. I felt "stress-free" with him in control of my case and was able to look forward to his updates knowing he was getting closer to my desired results. I would recommend him to anyone looking for the best outcome! Although I never got to meet him face to face, I would love to shake his hand and thank him for representing me when I thought I was at my worst. Wouldn't go with anyone else!
After being stopped and ticketed for 1st offense OWI and operating w/Pac I was scared because I have a CDL and drive a semi for a living. Everything in my life was dependent on my drivers license.
I called 8-10 different law offices who all told me the same thing, that the DMV will hold an administrative review and since my BAC was over.08 my license would be suspended for 1 yr. and that I'll loose my job. Then I called Dennis, who informed me that he could get the suspension stayed so my license would be valid and I could stay employed during the process of fighting the charges.
Hiring Dennis was the best thing I did to help my case. He got the charge of 1st offense OWI reduced to inattentive driving and the charge of operating w/Pac was dismissed completely. Nothing alcohol related is on my license, my career and livelihood are secure. I would have lost everything that I had worked for and built over the last 20+ yrs. if not for Dennis Melowski and associates.
Dennis was referred by a friend who is an attorney. He was very easy to talk with. Explained all aspects clearly and in simple language before I engaged him. I knew the potential outcomes. He did not put on a full court press sales pitch. Kept me in constant communication with the process. Handled some of my mundane concerns/questions patiently and with respect. I would highly recommend him.
Was referred by a friend and was told he was the best. He got me the best outcome for my DUI case and made the entire process very easy. The hard work that Dennis and his team did let me keep my job were I need to drive a company vehicle. If you are looking for the best possible outcome, there's no doubt this is the lawyer and team to go with!

I was arrested 10 months ago for DUI, as a CDL holder, this is career ending. I was referred to Dennis Melowski by an owner of a trucking company, who has benefitted from Dennis Melowski services in the past. My case was difficult from the start dealing with a hard judge, an arrogant arresting officer, and a DA who was out for all or nothing, and nothing is what he got, thanks to Dennis. He was able to stay my suspension while negotiating, so I was able to continue driving. He had a subpoena for a family member thrown out so they didn't have to go to court and testify, which was a big relief for my family. So when it came down to trial, Dennis was amazing. From jury selection, to cross examining the DA's witnesses, he was truly remarkable. It is a frightening experience having a jury trial, but Dennis made it bearable, eased my tension, and totally commanded the courtroom, that's where he is exceptional. Needless to say, verdict came back not guilty on the two charges of DUI and BAC over legal limit. Thanks to Dennis and his firm, my life is back to normal.

Attorney Melowski made my citation easy to get through. Even though it was a stressful time he took control and made me feel that he was taking care of everything. He never gave up going after what he wanted to get for me and in the end he got it. His persistance helped me greatly in saving my drivers license and reducing the initial charge. I would recommend Attorney Melowski in a heart beat!

It came down to Dennis and another well-regarded DUI attorney to fight my case and save my job. I was on the fence and contacts my wife's brother-in-law who is a lawyer at a big firm for his advice. He told me to go with Dennis because, in his words, "Dennis Melowski is the MAN." And was he ever right! Although the court process was very slow, I never lost faith because I knew I had Dennis in my corner. After months of legal challenges and plea bargaining, dennis got me a fantastic deal. I avoided a DUI completely and got stuck with just a minor traffic ticket. He saved my job (which would have been irreplaceable) and I cannot say enough good things about him. Like I was told, he is the MAN.

Dennis was referred to me by a Wisconsin attorney as the best OWI attorney in Wisconsin. As a professional in a small town, an OWI conviction could have been very harmful to my reputation. Dennis was able to have the OWI charge reduced to a minor traffic offense, a better-than-expected result, and I never had to appear in court or do anything other than respond to an occasional phone call or email from Dennis. I highly recommend him if you are serious about fighting an alcohol-related charge.

Accidentally took evening medications in AM. Became confused on drive to work. Arrested for OWI. No alcohol or narcotics. No driving citations for 40 yrs. Damaged a traffic sign and my bumper. State still came after me hard. Mr. Melowski diligently pursued this for 1-1/2 yrs, and in the end, got the charge reduced to traffic violations. No OWI. I believe this was a fair outcome for both sides, and the best I could have hoped for. Mr. Melowski is, in my opinion, as skilled and fine an attorney as you'll find. A real pro.
