Washington County OWI 3rd (2020)
3rd Offense OWI
I was recently represented by Dan Skarie for a 3rd offense OWI, Dan helped bring calm to the absolute chaos of this unfortunate event. Dan was able to coach and guide my family to a resolution that was acceptable considering the circumstances.

Milwaukee County OWI 1st (2020)
My attorney Dan Skarie was worth every penny. Every thing he told me he was going to do for me in our initial consultation he did. I had no idea what to look for in an attorney as this was the first time I’d needed one. Dan and I spoke on the phone and I told him my situation and he let me know how he could help. It was that easy. He was willing to work out a payment plan which also was great.
I cannot recommend Dan highly enough. He was responsive to any question I had and made sure I understood everything. He got it all done for me even with the pandemic going on.
If you need an attorney for your 1st DUI I’d ask for Dan Skarie.

Washington County OWI 5th Offense (2020)
Attorney Skarie is an excellent lawyer. He has an outstanding understanding of the law and his trial skills are second to none. He will fight to no end to get the best deal or in my case an acquittal after trial. Five stars is not enough considering the top notch representation he provides.

Waukesha County OWI 1st Causing Injury (2020)
Hired Attorney Dan Skarie to represent my teenager who was facing serious adult charges, with mandatory jail time. In my opinion, he went above and beyond. He is a very skilled attorney who understands the law and court procedures. He is very thorough and communicative. I felt that he genuinely cared about my daughter, was always encouraging, and he took time to listen and gather plenty of information. Most importantly, in court hearings he was very professional, precise, and did an outstanding job describing her character and the facts and circumstances of the case. He worked hard to get the best possible sentence for her. She was very happy with the results, and as her mother I am very grateful she was not jailed. I highly recommend Attorney Skarie!!

Waukesha County Case No 19-CT-XXX
Dodge County OWI 5th Offense (2020)
Dan told me from the start of my case it would be a true uphill battle. Most people with my offense (5th OWI) face prison time, and more likely than not that’s what I would get. He guided me in the right direction to accomplish tasks that would help me in my case. I worked hard at rehabilitation to prove that this OWI would be my last. The outcome was better than best. Dan’s expertise and knowledge with OWI cases are second to none. I guarantee I could not have found a better attorney given the factors in my case. Beyond his professionalism, he is a very sincere and genuine guy. He made my family and I feel like he had our best interest at heart. When I had doubts, he reassured me we were moving in the right direction. If I had to sum it all up in one word, absolute stud. Thanks again Dan for everything you did for my family and I.

Milwaukee County OWI 2nd Offense (2020)
Could Not Have Found Better Representation
“Working with Dan has been a phenomenal experience from start to finish. I could not have found someone as well versed, communicative, and genuinely a caring person as Dan. Every step of the way, he went above and beyond what I would consider the call of duty. He walked me through every step of the way, was very transparent, and stayed in constant communication with me over the 2.5 year process. Dan fought for me and was always honest and compassionate when it came to my case.
At trial, Dan was a pure professional in the courtroom. Really had a thorough argument for everything that was thrown at him, and never seemed to stumble. I have zero complaints about how Dan handled my case from start to finish. I would say his effort was 110%. His knowledge of the law seemed second to none. Even the science behind it. Dan is a phenomenal attorney and I would recommend him to anyone battling a OWI case. You will not regret your experience.”

Dan was a very informative and helpful attorney. He was able to win and get my dismissed, due to his very knowledgeable work on it. I would strongly recommend putting him on retainer to do your case. Very personable lawyer, also on top of what’s going on with case and relays info to you. His recommendation and thanks are very well deserved!

Owi Offense (2019)
I am beyond pleased, and can't thank him enough. (2019)
From our first meeting, he was attentive and responded in a timely manner to any concerns I had. He was never judgmental and never made me feel badly about anything, when I already felt bad enough on my own.
I never felt I was bothering him with my concerns. When necessary, he guided me in a way that gave me the confidence I needed when I was very worried and not confident in my abilities to testify on my own behalf…public speaking about personal matters to a room of strangers was a terrifying thought to me. But, he was encouraging and met with me until we were satisfied that I could do it.
We won, and it wouldn’t have been possible without him.
His instincts and intelligence are on point. His researching and understanding of the law are on point. He absolutely knows what he’s doing. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anybody, and I can’t say enough good things about Mr. Skarie and this firm. I am so satisfied with, and grateful for, the outcome.
Owi case (2019)
Highly recommend (2019)
Best Representation (2019)
There wasn’t much to hope for, in my case. The court had clear evidence in their prosecution; I didn’t have much in my defense. But Dan was diligent and thorough, and was able to win the best verdict possible.
He made himself available for questions, and put forth genuine effort for my case.
I would recommend Dan Skarie.
Fantastic Work by Dan and Adrienne (2018)
I highly recommend Dan if you are in a similar OWI situation. Great work and thank you for all that you assisted with.
OWI with a Refusal, OWI dismissed! (2018)
He did a great job questioning the arresting officer and after court explaining to me the importance of everything the officer said and how it would help us on appeal. Dan was able to get the my OWI dismissed upon appeal and we did not have to go to a jury trial! I am still dealing with the ramifications of the Refusal, but Dan and Adrienne have had all the answers and walked me through each step of a very confusing and time consuming process. I cannot thank them enough! I ask a ton of questions, and they continue to be so patient with me and will continue to available for the next year, until my Interlock is removed from my car.
Sidenote: The first lawyer I talked to stated this I had “little to no chance of winning this one” and suggested I plead guilty to the OWI and the Refusal to get six months off of my Occupational.
Best Lawyer (2018)
Dan is extremely professional, courteous and truly went above and beyond the call of duty in getting the best possible result for my situation. I would recommend him to anyone.
2nd DUI Dismissed (2018)
Dan used his impeccable knowledge on the topics of field sobriety tests and blood testing to fight for me and today we were able to have my case dismissed!
I was continually astounded with his determination for me!
An intelligent attorney that will save you from a lot of stress and hardships (2017)
But I thank God and Mr. Skarie because I won’t have to deal with it much longer.
Positive Outcome/Minimum Stress (2017)
It is obvious that he knows the inside/outs of DUI/OWI defense. Hiring Dan made my last couple of months a lot less stressful than expected. I would definitely recommend this Attorney’s services to the next OWI Offender looking for representation.

Knowledgeable, accessible and helpful lawyer (2017)
Knowledgeable OWI Attorney (2017)
Attorney Skarie was very knowledgeable in Wisconsin’s OWI process and was very thorough while helping myself and my wife deal with the circumstance. He was able to guide me step by step through the whole process and answered all of my questions. It was very reassuring that I could reach Attorney Skarie and his secretary at any time, day or night.
I believe that after almost one year of court proceedings, I received a very reasonable sentence in my case. I attest this to the representation that I had through the whole process, Attorney Skarie. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family or friends facing the same kind of predicament.
DUI Assistance (2016)
He worked with me and the prosecuting attorney to reach an agreeable plea deal. I found Dan’s honesty about the plea deal incredibly refreshing. He explained that it was a great offer for my situation and encouraged me to accept it even though he stood to make more money had we taken the case to court.
This made me feel very comfortable that Dan was looking out for his client’s best interest instead of his own. I would recommend Dan to anyone who is facing a DUI charge.
Great Lawyer! (2016)
I am grateful he was able to help me with my situation, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.

I really appreciate Dan’s energy, expertise, and dedication and definitely recommend him to anyone seeking representation for cases similar to mine.

Case Dismissed!!! (2016)
I’m so thankful I hired Dan to represent me – without going to trial, all charges against me have been dismissed. It’s an experience that I never plan on repeating, but if you find yourself having made a poor decision – call Dan, he’ll take the very best care of you! I will always be thankful, and never forget!
Great Lawyer! (2016)
Exceeded All Expectations (2015)
More impressively perhaps, my two OWI’s were wiped from record. Dan always kept be abreast of every detail of my cases, and whenever I needed to contact him, he returns phone calls and e-mails promptly.
Considering the range and number of cases I had Attorney Skarie work on, they were completed in a more than timely fashion and with exceptional results.
