Mr. Dineen exclusively practices in the area of drunk driving criminal defense, and his record of defense success has led to recognition throughout the state.

After completing his undergraduate education at Lawrence University in 2007, Mr. Dineen then went on to attend Ave Maria School of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2010. While in law school, he served as an intern with the Office of the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
