The stakes were very high. I was charged with OUI/DUI and refusal to submit to Chemical Tests. Loss of my driving privileges and an alcohol related conviction could put my professional license (don't want to be overly specific) in jeopardy as well as impact my employability. Mike and his team were rock stars.
The refusal to submit to chemical tests brings a MANDATORY 12 month suspension of driving privileges. This wouldn't even allow me to drive for work. Mike prevailed in getting this charge dismissed.
The DUI comes with 6 points, big fines, and a life-long scar on my driving record along with insurance ramifications. Mike was successful in getting the blood evidence suppressed, which ultimately resulted in the charges being dropped.
I never regretted hiring Mike and his team from day 1. They are professionals at each step. He knows the process better than the police, understands how the blood and breath test machines work, where the vulnerabilities are, and what steps the peace officers must take to ensure they meet their burden of proof. Communication was very good throughout the process. He is available by email, phone, text, even cell and the Nichols team works around the clock.
Mike Nichols is worth every penny and more.
I won't ever need his DUI services again because I have learned a very valuable lesson (despite having all charges dropped completely), but I certainly can throw my full support behind him for others that are facing this difficult situation. Hire Mike and he will give you the best possible outcome given your circumstances.
Thanks again Mike!

Mike was very attentive and called me before every court date. He gave me his cell number and communicated through text promptly. I felt like he had my back, he went out of his way to contact a probation officer on a separate charge that he was not representing me on. Very much appreciated the effort he put into my case.
I feel I got the best possible outcome in my situation, thanks to Mike.

I would highly recommend Michael as a lawyer. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional in the handling of my case. Michael explained the process, kept me informed, and answered all my questions in a timely manner. If I needed an attorney again, I would not hesitate to call Michael.

Mr. Nichols handled a case of impaired driving for my daughter. He kept her informed about all of the proceedings, the strengths and weaknesses of the case, and all of the options. He was able to negotiate a very favorable outcome that won't result in any criminal record or long term consequences. The case came out much better than we expected.
It was very obvious that both the judge and prosecutor have a lot of respect for his experience and judgment. That played a big part in getting such a good result.

I was arrested for an OWI and had a lot at stake in my case, suffice it to say. Mike jumped on the case even though I reached out to him over a holiday and was efficiently able to get a plea deal down to reckless driving. Mike's incredibly efficient and I was happy with his honesty, integrity, and legal prowess. I'd recommend him to all!

Mike and his team were exceptional to work with on my DUI, possession of marijuana case. They were always direct and to the point, honest, professional, extremely knowledgeable, and helped me explore all the possible options for my situation. Mike, Stephanie, and his staff always responded in a very timely manner and constantly kept me informed. My biggest concern with the charges were how it was going to effect my future goals as a medical professional. Mike, Stephanie, and his team were able to get the marijuana charged dropped due in part to recent law changes in the city of East Lansing, and the DUI reduced to reckless driving, which will be much better for my future. I'm beyond satisfied with the work and time Mike, Stephanie, and his team put into my case and would highly recommend them.
