DUI and DWI

Michigan DUI/OWI Lawyer - Small fees, BIG results!

- We know your rights and fight for them.

- You won't find more tenacious representation for a more affordable price.

- We find the bias in the police reports to poke holes in the prosecutor's case.

- With Drugged & Drunk Driving charges, most of the evidence comes from the testimony and procedures of the police. Many times, the arresting officer does not follow proper procedure during field sobriety and blood alcohol tests. Charges can be reduced or even dismissed when we bring these missteps to the prosecution.

- Convincing the prosecutor to reduce the charge to a OWVI should always be on the table. Also important is to show that the accused is seeking treatment at AA or taking other steps to kick their bad habit. In other words, the punishment must fit the crime or we will not stand for it.

- We always consider going to trial on a high BAC charge if the prosecutor will not negotiate. There is almost no downside to a trial except the time involved. A jury verdict of anything less than a high BAC could save the defendant money. The fine for a high BAC is $200$700, and the mandatory interlock can cost up to a thousand dollars. In addition, the license sanctions are nearly doubled for a high BAC compared to a conviction for OWI. A lesser conviction also exposes the defendant to only 93 days in jail as opposed to 180 days for a high BAC. This is very important in jurisdictions where the court has a reputation for imposing the maximum penalty for a probation violation.

- If the BAC is close to .17, we always consider a motion to eliminate the high BAC charge. The Datamaster is considered accurate only to plus or minus 5 percent.

- When it comes to controlled substance use, we will be prepared to attack the admission of the scientific evidence. The prosecution must lay a proper foundation to admit the chemical test results. The following are considerations that we will raise regarding the admission of scientific evidence:
- Were proper collection methods followed?
- Was the chain of custody properly handled?
- Were the testing methods based on sound
scientific principle?
- Were proper testing methods followed?
- Is the analyst qualified to testify as to the
results?
