Sarvan Singh Jr.
Late one afternoon, shortly after Sarvan Singh arrived back in his office at the State Public Defender's Office in Kenosha, his phone rang. On the other end was Dennis Melowski. "I've seen you in court. I want you to come work with me." Since that phone call, back in 2007, Sarvan has been working and fighting alongside Dennis, defending everyday people charged with drunk driving or other serious criminal traffic offenses. Sarvan has now developed a reputation for being one of the most dedicated and effective DUI defense attorneys in Wisconsin.
A staunch and deeply committed defender of the accused, Sarvan took a job with the Wisconsin State Public Defender's Office right after graduating from Marquette University Law School, turning down much more lucrative opportunities at large, corporate firms. While at the Public Defender's office, Sarvan was well-regarded as a fierce, sharp and resourceful lawyer. His reputation began to grow so much that potential clients would seek him out specifically to defend their case, a truly rare occurrence in the thankless world of public defender work. But Sarvan's devotion to tireless advocacy on behalf of his clients primed him for the work he now does with the firm.
With DUI defense now his primary area of practice, Sarvan has successfully resolved dozens of DUI cases throughout the state, obtaining a remarkable number of outstanding results for his clients. These results have come in the form of jury trial victories, dismissals, drastically reduced charges, and exceptional sentences that most lawyers lack the skill and creativity to even imagine. His skills as a trial lawyer and thorough researcher have earned him professional recognition as one of the most formidable drunk driving defense attorneys in Wisconsin. In acknowledgment of that reputation, Sarvan has been named in Milwaukee Magazine as one of Wisconsin's top lawyers in the field of drunk driving defense for the past several years. Sarvan has also been a sought-after speaker at legal seminars throughout Wisconsin focusing on drunk driving and traffic law. In fact, Sarvan is a frequent source of advice and strategy to lawyers throughout Wisconsin on how to effectively defend DUI cases. A sampling of what Sarvan has been able to accomplish for his clients can be found in our Real Results Tracker.
