DUI, Criminal Defense Lawyer and Former City Prosecutor Located in Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County

Have you, a loved one or friend been arrested for a DUI or other crime?  Are you laying awake at night scared you're going to jail or prison?  Embarrassed?  Afraid you're going to lose your license, reputation, job, car, or family?  Is your spouse or parent angry with you?  Are you confused about what happens in court?  Do you know your legal rights?  Do you think you may have an alcohol or substance abuse problem or another issue you aren't sure how to work out?  Then, you are at the right spot.  I can help.

Since 1987, I, Stacey M. Washington, have been protecting the rights of and giving clients peace of mind with focused, one-on-one legal services. I get results. I previously prosecuted DUI and general criminal cases for the City of Ann Arbor.  I now provide representation in the areas of DUI/DWI/OWI and general criminal law with particular emphasis on DUI cases.  I focus primarily on taking and handling DUI cases because of my passion for helping my DUI clients resolve potentially devastating and life altering problems.  I teach attorneys across the country about how to effectively defend DUI cases.

I believe in educating my clients about their cases, taking time to honestly answer clients' questions and by keeping them informed. I make every effort to promptly respond to my clients.  My compassionate legal care puts people at ease and relieves their stress, while my thorough, experienced and vigorous representation achieves results.

My approach to client advocacy: My legal representation is thorough and appropriately assertive.  It is tailored to each client's rights, needs and goals. Trials can be time consuming, unpredictable, expensive and emotionally demanding so I make every effort to resolve a matter through negotiation first.  I have significant trial experience and vigorously work to protect my clients' rights.  But, I recommend trial only as a last resort, when negotiation will not work or the evidence and law make trial appropriate.  You will NEVER be pressured to enter a guilty plea but you will be given sufficient information to make informed decisions.  While I can't guarantee a particular result, I can guarantee that I will be a dedicated, thorough, and assertive advocate for you.  I will never make a promise to you that I cannot keep.  I WILL do what needs to be done to protect your rights.  You can count on me to be in your corner until the case is over.
