About me

Peter J. Prusinski is your zealous advocate for criminal defense.

Mr. Prusinski focuses 70% of his practice on criminal law and drunk-driving matters, and is not afraid to take your case to a jury trial.

He is a member of the Wisconsin and Marathon County Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Mr. Prusinski brings his knowledge of immigration law and consequences to the field of criminal defense to aid those in particulary difficult situations where one may face deportation, inadmissibility, or ineligibility for legal permanent residence or citizenship because of criminal allegations.

Mr. Prusinski also has civil litigation and trial experience. He has handled and been involved in numerous civil matters over the years at Crooks, Low & Connell, S.C., including but not limited to: bench trials, personal injury claims and jury trials, temporary restraining orders and injunctions, contested child custody and placement matters, landlord and tenant evictions, and even small claims trials.
