Continued Success for the Milwaukee YMCA’s Driver License Restoration Project

For 5 years, the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee has been conducting the Driver’s License Restoration Project, with the latest edition held on June 21. This event is spearheaded by Attorney John A. Birdsall who volunteers on the YMCA Urban Campus Board. Three times a year, attorney Birdsall and other volunteer lawyers from the Milwaukee area (most recently with attorneys from Michael Best & Friedrich LLP) take the time to meet with individuals with suspended licenses in an effort to restore their driving record. These sessions are designed to help people understand their driving record and arm them with the information to restore their driver’s license. In most cases these situations are successful and these individuals are able to restore their suspended licenses. In more complex cases, individuals are referred to Hon. James Gramling at the Center for Driver’s License Recovery and Employability. For more information about the Driver’s License Restoration Project, check out the links in the text above.



The State Bar of Wisconsin – A Day With the Experts in Criminal Defense

The State Bar of Wisconsin’s Pinnacle Program and program director, attorney John A. Birdsall, will present a CLE seminar focused on criminal defense. “A Day with the Experts in Criminal Defense” seminar will take place Friday, June 13, 2014 in Madison, WI.

CLE events are designed to further legal education and hone your expertise as an attorney. John A. Birdsall is proud to be a part of this seminar and continue his personal tradition of education.


About the Seminar

The prosecution can seem pretty intimidating in a criminal case – with a virtual army of police, investigators, forensic scientists, and medical experts arrayed against your client. On the other hand, as in football or chess, these’s an equal and opposite defense to every prosecutorial move. This CLE seminar will further your understanding of criminal defense and hone your skills as a defense attorney.

Along with John A. Birdsall and the panel of criminal defense experts, you’ll

  • Unlock the mysteries of a typical DNA report as well as the laboratory procedures, technical language, and the strengths and weaknesses of the conclusions
  • Be aware of the common problems with the eyewitness identification and learn how to challenge the reliability of eyewitnesses
  • Recognize the contributing factors to unreliable child forensic interviews and learn specific methods to challenge the prosecutor’s experts
  • Learn the risk factors leading to false (and not so false) confessions, how to analyze them, and how to challenge them in court

How To Choose A Lawyer:
So you have been charged with a criminal offense. How do you choose a lawyer? This is not like choosing a lawyer for your divorce or choosing someone to make out a will for you. This is a serious decision with your life and your liberty at stake. There is four points that you mainly want to focus on. The first point is you want someone that specializes in criminal law. Not somebody that is a general practitioner. Not somebody that splits their practice into multiple areas. This is a highly specialized area of law. So whether your case is a drug crime, a sex crime or an OWI; the law is so complicated that you have to specialize if you want competent representation. The second thing that you want to focus on is whether or not the attorney has a track record of success. You want to know whether or not they have had serious jury trials. Specifically, you want to know that they have had trials in your area with the type of crime that you are charged with. You should check them out and do not be afraid to ask them questions. The third thing that you want to focus on is whether or not they are aggressive. A lot of lawyers will say they are aggressive. You have to use your own judgment of whether or not they are actually going to be aggressive. By aggressive, I mean someone who will literally interview every prosecution witness against you. They should provide you with all the evidence so you can make the decision about how to handle your case. They should follow up developing their own witnesses and doing their own investigation. That is the only way that you are going to be able to go to the prosecutor and ask them to dismiss a case. You must bring something to the table. The only way that you are going to win at trial is if you can bring something to the jury. Otherwise, all that will be left is the cop’s story as well as all the witnesses that the state or federal court has brought against you. The final thing to pay attention to is cost. Obviously this is going to cost some money. Don’t make the mistake of going to a cut-rate lawyer. There is a lot of them out there and what you are largely going to end up with is just a warm body next to you in court. If you have been saving for a rainy day, I assure you when you have been charged with a crime, it is raining. Be very careful about this decision and think about these four factors.
