I was in an accident and was arrested for an OWI. I have never been in any legal trouble before and I was extremely concerned about what those particular charges would mean for my career. Anthony advised me immediately as to what I needed to do and what his role was in reducing the potential charges. During the DMV hearing, he was able to build a case based on inconsistencies detected in the police report, which lead to maintaining my valid driver's license. Anthony excelled in his representation of my case during the entire OWI process. He was very committed to keeping me informed and ultimately lead to a reduction from an OWI to a reckless driving ticket. Anthony is the most capable and accomplished lawyer I could have chosen to represent me and I would highly recommend him to anyone in any legal matter that they may encounter.

Tony was a very helpful lawyer. He knows his stuff and advocates for his clients. We beat an owi case, which was a huge relief. He kept me informed of the process throughout as I was not very aware of the laws or the process of fighting an owi through the court system. I would highly recommend him. Thanks.

I have worked with several attorneys over several mishaps throughout my teens into my twenties, and have sadly been a client of over 7 different lawyers in my past, ranging from high payed to public defenders, and even federal defenders.
By far Tony has been the most knowledgeable, competent, and personable of them all. His attention to detail, and frequent return communication with me regarding my many persistant questions, concerns, and sometimes incoherent ramblings at times, was above and beyond at gave me a level of comfort and confidence I've never before experienced.
Long story short, he had secured beyond what i thought the best outcome could be in my OWI case, and with a professional ease and confidence I havent seen before. I would easily and quickly recommend him to both friends and family, knowing they would receive the best legal council available.

If you need someone that not only knows the law but also knows the people in the law on both your side and the courts side, Anthony Cotton IS THE MAN !!!!!
He knew the people that would help me and the people of the court that were trying to nail me for an accident I did not cause.
His cost was much less than was originally proposed by other law offices and saved me money and time.
I highly recommend Anthony (Tony) Cotton.
Just relax and let Tony take your problem in hand.
Thank You ! Don

I was on felony paper for battery intimidation of a victim. I absconded for 7 years. I called other attorneys and they didn't give me much hope. I consulted with Tony and he gave me hope. He didn't sugar coat anything, he's straight to the point. He covers all angles and all the what ifs... He dots every eye and crosses every T. I ended up with a sweet deal. 9 months with good time and work release. I did community service and was able to get out in a little over 4 months.. With "NO" probation. I'm more than pleased If you need a great attorney call Tony.

As the Title states, "The Best Damn Criminal Defense Attorney In Wisconsin" Tony was referred to me by a friend, that utilized his services and had outstanding results. I caught a 5th. OWI case, my first attorney was so incompetent that he lost my cash bail, as I was in the County Jail on a probation violation and the only thing that came out of his vocal cords was "You are going to prison" I immediately terminated his services and hired another attorney from that area. The only thing this attorney did was buy me time by filing motions, but the recommendation was still prison from the A.D.A, needless to say, that was $2,5000 flushed right down the toilet, along with a worthless private PSI that I got hoodwinked into spending $2,200 on, so I terminated his services and hired Mr. Cotton and his firm. When I first met with Tony and an associate of his, I felt a sense of relief, as Tony used terminology that his predecessors did not, he told me to relax and that they are experts at being "creative" He reviewed my case and agreed to take it on, it wasn't cheap, but it was a hell of a lot less than losing a 60k a year job as a salaried manager, well worth the initial investment. Tony was able to resolve the matter in 7 months to an agreement the was amicable and agreeable to all parties involved, which his two predecessors couldn't do in a combined time of 2 1/2 years. His professionalism, creativity and communication skills are second to none. To make a long story short, I received house arrest, probation and a nominal fine and that my friends, in my book, is what is called; "Being Creative" I'm now in the comfort of my own home, going to work everyday, eating home cooked meals (It beats processed turkey in prison, that isn't fit for consumption by animal) and kicking back enjoying my 55" flat screen television, along with cable and all of the pay channels. "Riddle me this folks" Can you get that in prison? The answer is HELL TO THE NO! He is a "Super Attorney" and should be flying into a courtroom with a cape and an "S" on his shirt! Well, that's my review of Anthony Cotton, so if you get yourself into a bind, call the "Man with the plan"

From the first time I talked to Tony, I knew he was the right lawyer for me. I was facing a 2nd owi charge in Waukesha County and he went above and beyond. He was very prompt with responses, He was able to take my sentence from 60+ days in Huber to 5 days. Excellent to work with.

I am one of the few people in the position of getting to endorse Tony as both a client and a fellow lawyer. When I got accused of a crime by an over-aggressive DA, there was only one attorney i could call, Tony Cotton. Thanks to Tony, I was never charged with any crime. I know that there are at least two other Attorneys who have called Tony when they got into trouble too and there is a really good reason for that. Tony is in the upper echelon of our profession. His bedside manner is informative and direct, but with the tone of a friend. His courtroom and negotiation presence are convincing and inviting. Oh, and he really knows his stuff, running circles around DA's in legal arguments they never saw coming. If you hire him, its like hiring the A-Team.

Tony handled a particularly challenging case for my family member. She was charged with one of the largest marijuana cases in Wisconsin history. This was exacerbated by the fact that both the Wisconsin Circuit Court and the Eastern District Court were prosecuting her simultaneously. Tony represented her in both matters and was the right lawyer for the job. From the initial consultation all the way through the completion of the case Tony demonstrated his legal knowledge, creativity, and determination to get the best results on her case. Ultimately, he was successful in getting the State case dismissed and the Federal case reduced to time served.
I highly recommend Tony to anyone, but especially those with difficult cases who need someone who thoroughly understands criminal law and will fight to ensure the best possible result!
