Northern Michigan has some of the toughest drunk driving penalties of all our states. Driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) including a host of confusing variations which our attorneys will both help you understand and work tirelessly to help ensure you are treated fairly and appropriately. Those include DUI, DWI, OWI, OUIL, OWVI and OUI. The charges associated with these offenses and their relative potential punishments vary greatly – and only a qualified, experienced attorney like you’ll find at Banner Law will help ensure you minimize (or are dismissed from) your charges.
To help minimize or eliminate those charges we examine factors including the traffic stop itself, the police’s appropriate following of established Michigan procedures, and conduct (including how the police gathered their evidence), and any potential violations which may have resulted in a denial of your constitutional rights.
Please consider that hiring Boyne City's Banner Law Firm could mean the difference between retaining and/or regaining your freedom from incarceration (jail or prison). Be sure to call us at the earliest possible time after you’ve been charged any drunk driving violation. Just like ourselves, good city, county, and state police officers make mistakes. This is true from the moment you’re stopped to your appearance in court. Common errors occur during blood, breath, and field sobriety tests, and also if you refuse to participate or perform in them.
