DUI Defense From The Prosecutor Who Trained The Police

When you step into a courtroom to face a drunk driving charge, you want to put your best foot forward.

Prosecutors only know you from what they see on paper. Your BAC, whether you are a repeat offender and the details of your traffic stop.

I know — because I used to be a prosecutor in Ann Arbor.

For more than a decade, I worked on DUI cases, reviewed them for charges and tried them in court. I was the prosecutor assigned to sobriety court, which officials created to help repeat drunk driving offenders get treatment for addiction. This means I know how to help you build up your defense and take the steps necessary to show a judge you are dedicated to making a change.

I trained the police on how to legally administer drunk driving tests. I understand the technical requirements in Michigan law, so if there are any holes in the investigation, I can craft an argument to ask to the judge to reduce the charge.

Basically, I have an insider perspective on what is most important to your DUI case.

That way, you can step into the courtroom confident you did all you could to appear in the best possible manner.

What If A Driver Refused The Chemical Test?

If you refused the police officer's request for a chemical test, you can lose your drivers' license for a year.

However, to prevent the loss of your license, your attorney must request the hearing within 14 days. Timeliness in this matter is crucial.
