Michigan DUI Attorneys

Understanding Michigan DUI Laws

State law prohibits anyone in Michigan from operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or above. Additionally, the state’s “zero-tolerance” policy forbids anyone under the age of 21 from operating a motor vehicle with a BAC of 0.02% and above. Though generally categorized under the umbrella term “DUI,” driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs in Michigan typically falls under one of two categories: operating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol (OWI) and operating while visibly impaired (OWVI).

Facts About a Driving Under the Influence Charge in Michigan

Once you have been charged with a DUI, it is essential that you get a clear picture of what to expect and understand the facts related to your case.

It is no surprise that the higher your alleged BAC was, the more severe the punishment will be upon a conviction. Some of the penalties you might expect include:

  • Fines
  • Jail time
  • Community service

There are several laws in Michigan pertaining to intoxicated driving that need to be discussed. They are operating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol (OWI) and operating while visibly impaired (OWVI) by drugs or alcohol. They both result in serious consequences if convicted, but one does not require an actual blood alcohol content level to be charged.

If you have been arrested for DUI, OWI, or OWVI in Michigan, you face serious penalties, including fines, jail time, and driver’s license revocation. It is crucial that you contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible who can work to defend your rights and protect your best interests.

How We Can Help

Being arrested for DUI is often a very overwhelming experience. Many people do not fully understand their rights, and more still do not realize they may have several legal options to fight the charges.

At Grewal Law PLLC, we assist clients with all aspects of DUI law, including but not limited to:

  • Commercial license DUI
  • DUI penalties
  • Felony DUI
  • Implied consent law
  • OWI
  • Underage DUI
  • Driver’s license restoration

Depending on the specific circumstances involved in your situation, our firm can use several strategies to dispute the validity of your charges.

Often, our Michigan DUI attorneys will look at the following factors when investigating your case:

  • Did the police officer have reason to stop you?
  • Did the arresting officer make any false or misleading statements?
  • Was the breathalyzer or other test administered correctly?
  • Were the results of your test handled correctly?
  • Was the breathalyzer properly calibrated before the test was administered?
  • Were proper police procedures followed during the time of arrest?
  • Were there any problems related to police jurisdiction?

We conduct thorough investigations and pursue every available avenue to ensure that your rights were not violated. We can also help you work to have your driver’s license reinstated if it was revoked as a result of your refusal to take a breathalyzer test.
