Michigan DUI Simplified

If you’re facing a DUI charge anywhere in the Detroit-area (meaning anywhere in Oakland, Macomb or Wayne County), 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.

Probably more than any other time in your life, you need expert help and clear solutions. As you look for a 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 a DUI charge, including loss of or restrictions on your driving privileges, the impact to your criminal and driving record, and your ability to move forward in life without this single instance of bad judgment holding you back.

We Can Bring Relief and Produce the Best Outcome in This Stressful Situation

You already know that a DUI has tentacles that reach into almost every area of your life, and affects you on many different levels. Now it’s time to talk about solutions, not more problems. 

Fear-based marketing tactics don’t help you in any way, and, at best, 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 DUI lawyer than just sounding good. 

As the client, you have to know that your lawyer is being honest with you, and not just telling you what you want to hear.

We are Those Lawyers

Your drinking history, overall relationship to alcohol, and what you were doing 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 law requires a thorough inquiry into these things before any penalties are decided. 

These findings, more than anything else, will determine what actually happens to you, and this is where, as a Michigan DUI lawyer, I provide an unequaled advantage.

I have special 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 shuffled through the system and treated like you do have, or are at risk to develop a drinking problem nearly as well as me.

If your relationship to alcohol has grown troublesome, my team and I can make sure it isn’t perceived as any worse than it actually is and make sure you get directed to the kind of counseling and help that’s a good fit for you, rather than just stand by as you get forced though whatever treatment program the court assigns. 

In other words, we can help you avoid the burden and frustration of classes, counseling and/or treatment that isn’t necessary or right for you.

We Will Help You at Every Step and Guide You Smoothly Through the DUI Process

We can produce the very best outcome possible in your case: If you don’t have a problem with alcohol, then I will use my specific clinical and legal training to make clear that your drinking is not excessively risky or problematic, 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 education, of knowing that I understand more about the development, diagnosis and treatment of alcohol problem 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 in ways like no other lawyer.

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. Remember, every single person standing before the court for a DUI promises it won’t happen again. 

We need to make the Judge believe that in your case.

Always Remember, Success in a DUI Case is Determined Primarily 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 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. 

It’s our job to make sure we put this situation behind you without turning your life upside down. 

It’s your job to make sure that you have found the lawyer who can do that for you. 

Now you have.

That’s DUI Simplified.
