Defending You From OWI Charges In Ann Arbor

A drunk driving conviction can mean a suspended or a revoked license, hefty fines and other legal consequences. As a former prosecutor for the city of Ann Arbor in OWI/DUI/DWI cases, I understand what prosecutors are likely to do in these types of situations. I have more than 30 years of legal experience representing clients and know what drunk driving defense arguments to make to protect your rights.

If you have been accused of DUI/drunk driving, it is important that you speak with a Washtenaw County DUI defense lawyer right away. Call 734-274-6567, and I will examine your case and find the best defense for your situation.

Vigorous, Compassionate And Experienced Ann Arbor DUI Defense Attorney

If you have been charged with misdemeanor or felony drunk driving, I can help. In Michigan, OWI convictions can result in court-ordered treatment, jail, loss of license and driving privileges, points on your driving record and substantially increased insurance costs.

I can assist you through the entire court process and guide them through their implied consent and court hearings to ensure that their rights are protected. I also take the time to explain the Michigan OWI law and how it will affect your case and life.

Understanding Drunk Driving Charges

When we sit down to discuss your drunk driving criminal charges (known as OWI in Michigan but by DUI or DWI in many other states), there are a few questions that need to be answered:

  • Was this your first drunk driving offense under this area of the law?
  • What happened to cause the officer to pull you over?
  • What happened after the officer stopped you?
  • What field sobriety tests were given?
  • What statements did you make?
  • How will this change your life?

It is important to understand your rights involving a suspected OWI stop. If there was no probable cause for the stop, your DUI/drunk driving case may be dismissed. Other questions to ask include: Were field sobriety tests or preliminary breath tests administered on the street? Was there a breath test given at the police station? Were you advised of your chemical test rights? Were Miranda warnings given? What was discussed between you and the police?
