If you’re facing a DUI charge, you undoubtedly have lots of questions and concerns. You want real-world answers that simplify things, not complicate them.
The last thing you need is more anxiety.
A drinking and driving (OWI) charge is serious, but it is also very manageable, especially anywhere here, in the Greater-Detroit area (meaning anywhere in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, or the surrounding counties).
Probably more than any other time in your life, you need expert help and clear solutions. As you look for a Michigan DUI lawyer, your goal is to find someone who knows exactly what to do, and how to make things better in your case.
You need a lawyer who can make as much of this go away as possible, and who you can trust to look out for your well-being.
You deserve to breathe easier, knowing that your lawyer is doing everything to protect you from all the potential negative consequences of the DUI charge, including loss or restriction of your driving privileges, the impact to your record, and your ability to move forward without this single instance of bad judgment holding you back.
We can bring relief and produce the very best outcome in this stressful situation
You already know that a DUI can reach into almost every area of your life, and affect you on many different levels.
Now it’s time to talk about solutions, not more problems. Fear-based marketing tactics don’t help you, and, instead, offer solutions to problems you don’t have.
Almost without exception, first-time DUI offenders in the Greater-Detroit area DON’T go to jail.
In fact, most people facing a 2nd offense can avoid getting locked up, as well.
On the other hand, always remember that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. There’s more to being a good Michigan DUI lawyer than just sounding good and charging a lot.
As the client, you have to know that your lawyer is being honest with you, and telling you what you need to hear, not just what you want to hear.
We are those lawyers
Your drinking history, overall relationship to alcohol, and what you were doing before and around the time of your arrest will be closely examined by the court system as you move through the DUI process.
This happens in every case, because the law requires a thorough alcohol and substance abuse screening before any penalties are decided.
These findings, more than anything else, will determine what actually happens to you, and this is where, as Michigan DUI lawyers, we provide an unequaled advantage.
I have special, post-graduate level training in addiction studies, and speak the language of both the clinician and the lawyer.
If you’re facing a DUI charge, no lawyer can protect you from being treated like you have, or are at risk to develop a drinking problem, better than me and my team.
However, if your relationship to alcohol has grown troublesome in some way, my team and I make sure you get directed to the kind of counseling and help that’s a good fit for you, instead of just standing by and watching as you get forced though whatever treatment program some court assigns.
In other words, we can help you avoid the burden and frustration of unnecessary classes, counseling and/or treatment.
We will help you at every step and guide you smoothly through the DUI process
We will ensure that we produce the very best outcome possible in your case.
If you don’t have a problem with alcohol, then all that clinical and legal training will be put to use to to make it clear to the court that your drinking is not problematic, and that you don't pose any risk beyond this one DUI incident.
If you are struggling with your drinking, then we can help make sure you don’t waste your time and money being crammed into the wrong kind of one-size-fits-all program.
When I walk into the courtroom, I have the confidence - backed by the formal, clinical education - of knowing that I understand more about the development, diagnosis and treatment of alcohol problems, and the many ways people recover from them, than anyone else there.
This kind of specialized learning takes years and tens of thousands of dollars, but the return on that investment means that I can protect you like no other lawyer.
For example, it's almost automatic to think "AA" when the subject of counseling or treatment comes up, but the fact is, AA doesn't work for most people. Peer reviewed studies show that it has a success rate of between 5 and 10 percent, meaning that it WON'T WORK for at least 90% of people.
If your lawyer doesn't understand that, then how can he or she even try to protect you from being ordered to attend meetings?
Welcome to my world
Sometimes, things look worse than they are, and being caught up in a drunk driving case is a prime example of not making a good first impression.
We need to fix that.
Doing so requires showing how this incident is truly out-of-character for you, because every single person standing before the court for a DUI will promises that it won’t happen again.
We need to make the Judge believe that in your case, and not hammer you with long, difficult probation that includes all kinds of classes, counseling and testing.
Always remember: Success in a DUI case is best measured by what DOES NOT happen to You.
All of the opinion, talk and theory in the world doesn’t mean a thing unless it directly translates into making your situation better. We will use our expertise to have a real, positive impact on your case.
No one can protect you more than me and my team, and no one will work harder to do that. We will analyze and examine all the evidence and facts in your case and do everything possible to make your situation better so that you don’t have to worry about it.
