Effective DUI Attorney in Oakland County

DUI cases are among the most common criminal charges, which is why we study every aspect of local driving and substance laws. If you are arrested for impaired driving, our DUI attorney team will examine the circumstances under which you were stopped, making sure the officer had probable cause. We will also scrutinize the breathalyzer or field test used to determine that you were impaired, as these methods are not as accurate as they seem. If we find that the officer didn’t have cause to stop you or that their evidence was faulty, we will argue to dismiss the case. Even if we can’t get the case thrown out, we will work to minimize jail time and keep your driving privileges.

Charged with Possession? Hire an Experienced Attorney!

Possessing controlled substances is a crime, but that doesn’t mean police can search you for them under any circumstances. If you are charged with possession, our team will examine how the police learned you had the substance; at the first sign of an unlawful search, we will demand that the case be dismissed. We will also argue against excessive sentencing, making sure that if you are convicted, the punishment fits the crime.
