Knowing that he was facing a huge challenge, Kirk took on a case with not just one, but two chemical test results far above the legal limit. A breath test showed an alcohol concentration of .27, and a blood test showed an alcohol concentration of .28.
In a Northern County in Wisconsin, our client was arrested after allegedly striking a pedestrian on the side of a rural road. Our forensic analysis of the evidence and months of investigation revealed that it was impossible that our client was the cause of the death.
On the last day possible to request a refusal hearing, a client called Kirk advising him that he didn't know what to do or how to respond to the notice. Kirk quickly sprang into action and made sure that the refusal hearing request was filed at the last minute.
Our client was accused of a violent assault of a woman, which allegedly resulted in her arm and hand being broken in 13 different places. The Obear team went to work to investigate the background and history of the complaining witness, and also interviewed all of the tenants in the apartment building where the assault was said to have happened.
When KQ's family came to Kirk Obear and Associates, they were devastated having just learned that their son had been accused of sexual assault of a minor. Kirk went quickly to work to investigate and develop evidence in KQ's favor. Dedicating many late nights and weekends to the case, Kirk put together a case file that put the prosecution in a position to be unwilling to proceed on the charges.
State v. RC
A client who knew he was in for trouble came to the Obear firm seeking help. He was on his Third OWI, and his test result was way up there. Fortunately for RC, the team went into action and investigated the case from the get-go. Kirik and Charlie established conclusive evidence that the prosecutor would not be able to prove that RC was impaired at the time that he was driving and had an accident.
State v. BF
Yet another successful jury verdict from Attorney Kirk Obear. Kirk secured Not Guilty verdicts on all counts in an OWI Second offense case in which the prosecution came in to the trial with guns ablazin'. Anticipating that Kirk knows his stuff, the prosecution brought in an "expert" witness to help bolster the case.
State of Wisconsin v. SJ
The client was charged with Repeated 1st Degree Sexual Assault of a child, an extremely serious felony. Over the course of 18 months, Kirk filed motions which developed the defense against the charges in a way that made it impossible for the prosecutor to proceed.
State v. HW
The arresting officer claimed that HW "failed" three field sobriety tests. An initial review of the police reports seemed to support this notion. However, Kirk filed a motion to suppress based upon the results of an administrative suspension hearing which was held prior to the case going to Circuit Court. Kirk knew from the testimony at the suspension hearing that the officer was not up to snuff.
City v. SA
Sometimes clients are referred to our office because the stakes are high and the outcome of the trial could permanently effect a person's livelihood. That was the case when SA was referred to our office from a prominent Illinois attorney who knew that this case would require special attention for two reasons: SA had an Illinois license; and SA had a commercial driver's license.
