Your Advocate After A DWI Arrest
You thought you were fine to drive yourself home. The flashing red and blue lights in your rear-view mirror indicated otherwise. Now you’re facing DWI charges, a criminal offense. Who would’ve ever thought it could happen to you?
The reality is that it can happen to anyone. Fortunately, you do not have to go to the courthouse alone. I firmly believe you are innocent until proven guilty. I also know you have options to protect your rights and driving privileges. We can talk about them in a free consultation by phone or in person.
The DWI Process From Start To Finish
When you are charged with a DWI, you will be scheduled for an initial court date (your arraignment) where the judge will review your case and formally charge you with drunk driving, legally known as “operating while intoxicated” in Michigan. Then you will have a second court appearance to hear your sentence.
My advocacy starts from the minute you retain me and ends when your case does. I will examine all the evidence in your case to determine whether:
- Police had probable cause to pull you over in the first place
- Any blood alcohol readings were impaired by machine error, medications you take or other factors
- Your rights were upheld throughout your traffic stop and criminal processing
My investigation will help me in negotiating the best possible outcome for you. In the best-case scenarios, this could result in dropped charges or a lesser charge of impaired driving or a moving violation. Even when it seems like the cards are stacked against you, I will do my utmost to minimize the consequences you face.
I am known to prosecutors and judges in our local courts for my diligence, respectful representation and commitment to protecting my clients’ rights and interests.

You may think hiring a lawyer is too expensive for one little DWI charge. Think again. Even a first-time DWI carries serious penalties, including heavy fines, license suspension and even jail time, though going to jail is rare for first-time offenders — especially those who retain an attorney.
The costs of a conviction are not worth skimping on your defense. I maintain highly competitive and affordable rates for DWI defense for this reason. I will also be upfront with you about the costs of my services so you know what to expect.
