If You are Arrested and Charged with OWI, DUI, DWI, DWVI, or Plain old Drunk Driving
If you are charged with OWI, we will look at all the facts. For instance, did the police have probable cause to pull you over, what roadside Field Sobriety Tests were given and are the FSTs that were administered approved by NHTSA. We will also consider whether they were conducted properly. We will make sure any Breathalyzer test results were administered properly and whether the police waited the statutory time before giving you the test. And we will make sure the Breathalyzer testing device was properly calibrated. Because sometimes, the failure of the police to follow proper procedures may result in your charge being dismissed or reduced, we will examine ever facet of your arrest.

In Michigan, OWI can be proved in several ways:

  • The arresting officers can testify that the way you were driving indicates that you were operating your vehicle under the influence of intoxicants, or
  • That the arresting officer administered a breath test or blood alcohol test which proved that your blood alcohol was .08 or above which is proof that you were driving drunk.
