Daniel R Skarie
For criminal defendants, the criminal defense attorney is often all that stands between defendants and the incredible prosecutorial power and resources of the government. If you or a family member is accused of a crime, choosing the right criminal defense attorney is the first critical decision to make. Honored to be chosen as his client’s shield against governmental overreach, Dan is acutely aware of the faith and trust each of his client’s places in his skills and abilities as an attorney. From day one, Dan will leave no stone unturned when challenging the evidence against you. Throughout his career as a criminal defense attorney, Attorney Skarie has helped numerous clients beat or dramatically reduce the consequences of a criminal prosecution.
For those charged with crimes, often the criminal court system is frightening and disorientating. Attorney Skarie makes every effort to ensure that his clients understand criminal court procedure, the evidence in their case, the elements of the crime charges, possible defenses, driver’s license penalties, collateral consequences and all other aspects of their case. His goal is to ensure that his clients are always informed and involved in the defense of their case. To that end, Dan provides each client with his personal cell phone number and is available 24/7.
Dan is committed to staying on the cutting edge of criminal defense. He routinely attends local and national seminars dealing in the forensic sciences and trial skills. Furthermore, Attorney Skarie is a proud member of the National College of DUI Defense, DUI Defense Lawyers Association, and the Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
A lifelong resident of Wisconsin, Dan attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for his undergraduate and law school degrees. Dan currently resides in Wauwatosa, WI. When not practicing law, he enjoys relaxing with family and friends, walking his English bulldog Graham, and watching Wisconsin sports teams.
