    You should absolutely contact an attorney. While it is not unusual that charges haven't reached the court yet, an attorney needs to do certain things right away to make sure that evidence is preserved. Mainly, a good attorney will FOIA video evidence from the squad car and above the datamaster. This video evidence is usually the best evidence that can be used to refute what an officer says and get a charge dismissed or won at trial. -Attorney Scott Aaronson Always Free Consultations 877-...

    You should immediately go to a private lab and get an erg. This is a private test that can go back 72 hours from the date you took it. You should also call an attorney asap! Attorney Scott Aaronson 877-I CAN WIN FREE WEEKEND CONSULTATIONS

    It is my belief that you can do sobriety court in any county that has it on condition that your judge agrees to it and the sobriety court in another jurisdiction allows you into the program. Note that I have went to great lengths to get some of my clients into the sobriety court program after they really wanted to get in, only for them to want out soon after. Sobriety court can be much more demanding than regular probation. I have heard of probation agents making late night stops at houses...

    The obvious very important factor that was left out of this decision is who the judge is. There are disadvantages and advantages to both. Some might argue that if technically not guilty, perhaps a judge would better be able to follow the law then a layman who sees that a person is guilty besides for a mere technicality. With a jury trial however, the state has to convince all 12 jurors that you are guilty instead of one judge. Oakland County is a conservative area filled with a majority...

    This is relatively common. All blood evidence goes through the Michigan State Police Crime Lab in lansing. They are usually backed up and I have waited as long as a year before the evidence is ready. It is important you get an attorney ASAP. This is especially true because often times the video tape evidence in the police cruiser gets destroyed in as soon as 30 days. A good attorney will FOIA that evidence first thing so that it is preserved. -Attorney Scott Aaronson 877-I-CAN-WIN...

    While the answer is no, you have a case that is unusual and could possibly be won at trial. They must prove beyond a reasonable doubt it was you driving. If they cant find the anonymous tipster or if the anonymous tipster cannot identify you as the driver you could win at trial. I'd speak with a competent DUI lawyer from Southfield or Metro Detroit ASAP. -Attorney Scott Aaronson 877-I-CAN-WIN Free Consultations Direct: 248-956-1165

    You absolutely need to contact an attorney as soon as possible. It is not uncommon for charges to take some time. While this is true, things like video evidence from dash cameras can be deleted if not preserved after 30 days. As you probably know a third in a lifetime is a felony. -Attorney Scott Aaronson 877-I-CAN-WIN Free Consultations

    If it is an owi related offense, you are usually issued a paper temporary license. This works the same as any valid license. Once you are convicted and the abstract is sent to the Secretary of State, you usually have a week or two before you get a letter from the Secretary of State that will indicate the date your license will be suspended or restricted.

    Usually it is 33%. Michigan Ethical rules make it not allowed for attorneys to receive over a certain amount. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish. Insurance companies look at inexperienced people without attorneys as easy bait that can be paid off. You are much better off getting a qualified attorney and giving a contingent fee than going through this alone. Many times even after taking out the attorney fee, the results are still much better for you. If I were you I'd focus on finding a...
