Biography: Aaron Nelson graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison Law School in 1996. After graduation, Aaron immediately began working with Doar, Drill & Skow defending people accused of crimes. Aaron handled hundreds of cases and had plenty of early success in jury trials. After several years learning the art of criminal defense from Criminal Defense Attorney Donald Fast, Aaron moved to Hudson in 2001 and started his own criminal defense practice at Estreen & Ogland. While his success in front of the jury continued, the benefits of being with the region's top litigation firm drew Aaron back to Doar, Drill & Skow. In 2005, Aaron returned to Doar, Drill & Skow and continues to focus on successfully defending people accused of crimes and drunk driving.In Aaron Nelson's over 15 years as a Criminal Defense Trial Lawyer, he has litigated more than 50 trials including: First Degree Intentional Homicide, First and Second Degree Sexual Assault, Arson, Armed Robbery, Robbery, Possession of Child Pornography, Battery, Felony Theft, Possession of THC (Marijuana), Methamphetamine, and Cocaine, Disorderly Conduct, Criminal and Civil OWI's, and Civil Mental Health Commitments. In addition to the numerous outright "Not Guilty" verdicts, other trials have resulted in cases being dismissed during the trial and some have resulted in convictions on lesser included crimes rather than the original, more serious charge. In addition, Aaron Nelson has also had significant success in representing clients at motion and suppression hearings, which resulted in significant evidence being suppressed and the case then being dismissed or significantly reduced. At these hearings, Aaron Nelson has persuaded the judge that evidence needed to be suppressed (and therefore not admitted into evidence at trial) because the police violated his client's constitutional rights by conducting an illegal search and seizure (violated his 4th Amendment rights) and/or violated his 5th/6th Amendment rights.Aaron Nelson has been recognized by his peers as a "Super Lawyer" and has won Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers' prestigious Martin Hanson Advocate's Prize as well as the David Niblack Award. Aaron is also one of a select few private attorneys in St. Croix, Polk, Pierce, or Dunn County certified by the Wisconsin State Public Defender to represent people charged with a Class A Felony: Intentional Homicide.
