Ingham County high school student arrested for operating with the presence of drugs after it was determined he was under the influence of marijuana following a traffic stop. While the blood-test results were pending, the client engaged our firm and was immediately directed to participate in a comprehensive, proactive rehabilitative regime. The prosecutor ultimately agreed to dismiss the driving charge in exchange for a guilty plea to marijuana possession, with a recommendation that the court utilize MCL 333.7411 (7411 status) in sentencing the defendant. The defendant's case will ultimately be dismissed without jail time and without a conviction upon successful completion of probation. The client summarized his feelings about our representation as follows:
"I was beyond pleased with the services that I received. Mr. Zulakis was always realistic with me about everything while also connecting with me on a personal level as opposed to just treating me like a generic client. Mr. Zulakis answered everything clearly and confidently, making it evident that he had a deep knowledge of the issues surrounding my case. In the end, he lived up to his reputation by reaching a deal that was very unlikely from the start, but was the best possible scenario.
I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for me. This was the worst time of my life and you made this whole process as easy as you possibly could have. From the beginning, you realized what the main priorities were, number one of which was coming out of this with a clean criminal record. Although it seemed unlikely at the time, you achieved it, which I will be eternally grateful for. You're clearly very good at what you do, and this goes along with your personality as a whole makes you the complete package as far as attorneys go."
