Being arrested for drunk driving can have consequences that affect your personal and professional life as well as your criminal record. For many people, losing one's driver's license or even a professional driver's license can mean the difference between keeping a job and being unemployed. For others the financial costs and the risk of facing jail time may be difficult to manage. No matter your situation, a drunk driving conviction is a serious matter that is best managed with the help of a lawyer.
More Than 30 Years Of Experience Getting You Back Behind The Wheel
At Baird and Zulakis P.C., Attorneys at Law, we are committed to defending your rights. When you choose us to represent you, we will conduct a thorough investigation. We will verify that all laws were adhered to by the police who pulled you over and conducted the field sobriety tests. We will test the merit of the breath test that was used to determine intoxication. We will take every step necessary to ensure that your rights are protected when you are charged with a drunk driving offense, including charges involving:
- OWI — Operating while intoxicated with a BAC of .08 percent or higher (also commonly referred to as DUI or DWI)
- OWVI — Operating while visibly impaired (the officer perceived that you were intoxicated, even if you did not have a BAC of .08 percent)
- OWPCS — Operating with the presence of drugs or controlled substances
- OWI High BAC — Under Michigan's new Super Drunk Driving Law, drunk driving penalties are increased for individuals with a BAC of .17 or higher
