As a criminal defense and trial attorney, I have represented hundreds of clients and in all stages of criminal proceedings, including jury trial and appeal.  My cases frequently result in reduced charges or dismissed charges.  In addition to an excellent outcome, I strive to ensure that my clients have the best possible experience under the circumstances.  Other practice areas include divorce. 

 

Before opening Poole Law Office PLLC, I clerked in a district attorney's office and began working with the public defender's office. 

 

In addition to my private legal practice, I am currently a Judge Advocate (JAG Officer) in the Army Reserves where I serve as a prosecutor in a brigade.

Knowledgeable and Reasonable
Mr. Poole helped me with my DWI case. He's very knowledgeable and reasonable and helped guide and give clarity to the situation throughout the legal process. He was able to answer my questions in a timely manner and resolve my case with the best possible outcome. I recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a defense attorney.

Highly Recommend
I hired Andrew Poole to represent me in my case. He was very understanding and he did everything he was able to to help me. My case lasted for nearly 3 years and Andrew stayed by my side every step of the way, assuring me that everything will be alright. My case went to trial and in the end I was found not guilty. I can't thank him enough and will forever be grateful!

Awesome Lawyer!
Its always nerve wracking to hire a lawyer. I needed one for a case that was coming up so I talked to several different lawyers some of whom were referrals. Andrew had great reviews and seemed to have a better handle on my situation than the other guys I talked to. On a leap of faith I hired him. He asked for payment up front which I understood but was hesitant about. He worked very hard for me, had great advise and always communicated. It took 18 months because of covid and he never gave up. He finally got my case dismissed against all odds. I couldn't be more happy with his performance!!!

Andrew gave me hope and a result that I never would've expected with my case
Andrew did a great job helping explain all of the legal jargon that the general public wouldn't know. He is very respectful and personable. He was very flexible working with my schedule so we could have a meeting in person. I've never had to hire a lawyer but my experience with Andrew was one I will never forget, because I learned so much in such a quick time. I am glad Andrew was able to take my case to help me along and get through it. If I ever had to hire a lawyer in the future, Andrew would be my first call.

Easy to work with
Andrew doesn't mess around, he is strait to the point and won't sugar coat any of your potential consequences. He puts all options on the table and talks you through to understand the best path to take. He knows the courts and the law extremely well. I made the right choice calling him.

Highly recommended professional service
I found myself In a situation with the Law. Wisconsin law, which is a bit unusual. I was facing multiple charges that could of done some serious damage without the right representation. From the first consultation, Andrew was informative and professional. He carried that professionalism throughout the entire case, not settling until the outcome was favorable and we had reached best case scenario option. I would highly recommended Mr. Poole for anyone who is in need of representation to face the Law head on.

Amazing Lawyer
I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney. He advised me in the right direction while keeping me calm through the entire process. He treats you with respect and without judgment. Without him I would have been sitting in prison for three years, but instead I got my charges reduced, two years probation, and a stay of imposition my felony becoming a misdemeanor with good behavior! Andrew does an awesome job and is very reasonably priced!! Thank you again for everything Andrew wouldn’t be here with out you. Blake Heavirland

Life Saver
Andrew provided wise counsel for a quick and a highly favorable outcome so I could move forward with my life after DUI. He was an indispensable asset during the stressful circumstances I found myself in. Thanks to his efforts, I was able to learn an important lesson from the penalties I received from the court, without the complete destruction my life or livelihood.

Would highly recommend Andrew Poole!
Three months ago had an unfortunate incident and needed legal advice. I had heard great things about Andrew so my husband and I reached out to him for a consultation. I felt Andrew took a vested interest in my case from the start. We hired him to represent my case and we truly couldn’t have made a better decision. He was professional, caring and supportive through the entire process and reached the outcome we had hoped for. If you are looking for an attorney who takes your case seriously and treats you like an individual, I would highly recommend Attorney Andrew Poole.

Andrew Poole put my mind at ease during one of the most difficult times in my life
Andrew is personable, reliable, affordable, realistic, and an expert in his field of work. Upon my fast and free consultation, I decided to hire Andrew to defend my criminal conviction of a DWI at three times the legal limit. I was not familiar at all with the legal system and court procedures when I began, but Andrew guided and thoroughly explained all processes and probablilities that will/may come. In the end, my three count DWI was dropped down to one count DWI by utilizing Andrew’s guidance and advice. I highly recommend Andrew Poole for his expertise to guide anyone through their DWI/DUI or criminal conviction.
