Traffic and OWI Defense
It’s often a stressful experience to get pulled over by a police officer or state trooper. You may wonder what you did wrong — and think that you were doing everything right and still end up with a ticket or worse.
You may even find yourself in the scary situation of being charged with driving under the influence because an officer or another driver on the road thought they saw you driving in a way that indicated you were impaired, or thought they smelled alcohol on you when they pulled you over.You may not have been impaired at all. Anyone can make a mistake in their observations, especially at night in the dark when most DUI arrests happen.
You may take a breath test and get a false positive reading for any number of reasons, or lack the motor coordination to perform roadside field sobriety tests for reasons other than being drunk.When you’re charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, or OWI, in Michigan, you can face very serious consequences even if it’s the first time you’ve ever been charged with any kind of criminal offense. Even a first offense for OWI is a misdemeanor in Michigan, and under some circumstances OWI can be a felony. The possible consequences you may experience if you’re convicted can include:
A jail or prison sentence
Loss of your driver’s license
Loss of use of your vehicle
Loss of your job if you drive for work in any capacity
Points on your driver’s license
Increases in your car insurance premiums
A permanent criminal record that can’t be expunged
If you’ve been charged with OWI, that can be a frightening experience that fills you with uncertainty. You may be afraid of going to jail or losing your driver’s license or your job. You need a good DUI lawyer on your side, who will fight for you in court and make every effort to get your charge dismissed or your penalties reduced so that you can continue on with your life, be there for your family, and move forward in your job or career.
