J. Steven House represents clients accused of crimes or traffic violations throughout Wisconsin. He graduated with honors, magna cum laude, from the University of Illinois College of Law in 1999 and began legal practice with the Knox County Public Defender's Community Law Office in Knoxville, Tennessee where he worked in the Misdemeanor, Felony, DUI and Trial divisions as well as handling appeals. In 2006 Steven began private practice in Wisconsin while still handling appellate matters in Tennessee.
    
Steven House handled drunk driving cases exclusively for several years as well as working for small law firms which focused on impaired driving defense. This intensive focus on impaired driving offenses provided the experience necessary to obtain numerous dismissals, reductions and amendments of drunk driving charges to lower level offenses. During this time he became intimately familiar with the nationally standardized field sobriety tests and the numerous factors that can lead to false results from those as well as blood alcohol tests.  
    
As a private attorney, Steven House persuaded a state supreme court to overturn a jury verdict convicting a client of felony aggravated assault and aggravated reckless endangerment stemming from an attempted "suicide by police officer." This appellate success was followed by successfully petitioning  the Wisconsin Supreme Court in 2010 to review the decision of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals in State vs. Janet A. Conner, 2009 WI App 143, challenging the jury instructions as well as the trial and appellate courts' interpretation of the aggravated stalking law. Recent appellate successes include overturning the conviction of a client on three counts of distributing a schedule 2 narcotic to a police informant, obtaining a new trial in Jefferson County, and suppression of evidence obtained by search warrant in the appeal of a burglary conviction in Rock County.
    
The House Law Office continues to focus solely on criminal and traffic defense at the trial and appellate levels with an emphasis on impaired driving and drug offenses. In hiring Steven House you will have an attorney who cares about his clients, is passionate about civil liberties, and who understands that the law is an ever changing field that requires persistent study. You will also have an attorney who will personally handle your case rather than passing it on to a junior assistant to review and draft motions or even appear in court with you.

Key Benefits of Hiring a Truck Accident Attorney
As the frequency and severity of motor vehicle accidents continues to increase in the United States, the incidence of truck accidents is on the rise, as well. In fact, trucks are more vulnerable to accidents than other vehicles on the road for many reasons. Every year, more than 5,000 people in the U.S. will die as a result of truck collisions. The number of severe truck accidents and related deaths rises year over year, which has become a significant public safety concern. These types of accidents often involve larger trucks.
What to Do if You Have Been Involved in an Auto Accident
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, any injuries that the accident causes may be considered personal injuries under the law. If someone else is at fault for causing the accident, that person may be liable for your injuries and for providing compensation to you. Auto accidents involve legal complexities and require the victim to prove the at-fault driver’s negligence to win a case. As a victim, you must have sufficient evidence that demonstrates the other driver’s fault.
Depression’s Subtle Warning Signs
While mental health is at the forefront of discussion in the United States because of the current climate, people often fail to notice the most subtle signs of diagnosis and do not seek appropriate treatment in a timely fashion. The symptoms of depression or other common mental health issues may be readily apparent to an expert, but the average person may ignore them or not even realize their presence.
