I have handled over a thousand drunk driving cases, helping people avoid or minimize the consequences of a DUI conviction. I have racked up more dismissals than any other lawyer in Michigan. Prosecutors and judges across the state know me. I was elected by my fellow lawyers to serve as the president of CDAM in 2014-2015, Michigan's statewide criminal defense organization.
I am a nationally published author on drunk driving defense. I lecture on DUI defense, and I have extensive training and knowledge about the science behind drunk driving cases. I am the lawyer who cops, judges and prosecutors call when a friend or family member gets in trouble, and I have successfully represented other lawyers all the way up to the Michigan Supreme Court.
I promise to treat you like a friend or a family member, and I want to help you. A drunk driving charge is serious because it can't be expunged or taken under advisement like most crimes. All I ask is that you call me to discuss your case and get my two cents. If you're already represented by another attorney, there's no shame in getting a second opinion, and you don't have to hire me.

This is not exactly controversial, since numerous studies have shown that gastroesophygeal reflux disease can inflate breath test scores. The prosecutor called it "junk science" and demanded that we produce expert witness reports and articles.
A Michigan drunk driving charge is very serious. You must treat this charge as potentially life-changing. Many lawyers make a great deal of money on these cases by pleading people guilty to the offense of "operating while visibly impaired" (OWVI) without ever exploring a defense. An OWVI counts as a drunk driving conviction, and a Michigan drunk driving conviction can:
