I can tell you it would be unlikely that you would get charged with an OWI if they did not do any field sobriety tests on you or take your blood or breath sample.See question
Recently I was pulled over in a small town in Michigan. The officer alleged that I was "all over the road" and that was his reason for stopping me. After questioning me I was ordered out the car, given a field sobriety test (which the officer didn...
they might be liable to you for a false arrest. Your biggest issue isn't liability but if damages are sufficient to file suit. The question is how much provable damages occurred from one day of missed work? Ask yourself if an attorney will think it is worth his time for 1/3 of that total amount.
Alternatively, you can pay an attorney out of pocket to sue, but expect to spend thousands. Regardless, I don't know enough about what you do to determine if you do have sufficient damages. I'd call an attorney asap. Most, like myself, give free consultations.See question

You need to talk to an experienced attorney asap. The biggest question I would have is whether or not he is collectible. You may be able to get a judgement against him, but if he has no money it won't mean anything.
Call an attorney at once. AVVO is an excellent place to look.See question

If you already plead guilty it would be very very difficult. What is more likely is that you get a motion to set aside conviction if eligible. You can get your felony expunged if you have no more than two misdemeanors on your record.See question

You need an attorney to assist you. You have 14 days from the day you are arrested to request to contest a refusal with the secretary of state. Otherwise your license will be suspended for one year.
You should have been read a form indicating the consequences of refusing. Many stations have booking video that shows exactly what was said to you.
You should definitely contest it. Get an attorney to help.See question
How to expunge? 1989 drug charge, possession with intent to sell.
First we have to see if you are eligible. Since it is a felony, there must be only one count and you can have no more than 2 other misdemeanors and 0 other felonies in your life time. If this is true, you must file MC 227, or make a motion to set aside a conviction. You must file the motion with the court, prosecutor, Attorney General and Michigan State Police. With the Michigan State Police, you must also include a $50 fee and copy of your fingerprints.
You must wait until the MSP and AG both respond to the court before having your hearing. Then at the hearing if the Judge agrees to set aside the conviction, you will get an order setting aside conviction. That order must be sent to the Michigan State Police.
At this point only 1/2 of the work is done. The second half is making sure it comes off all of the public database background check companies. SOME attorneys who do a lot of expungements (myself included) have large lists of these companies and can notify several of them at once when you are done. This may be included in the fee for helping with the expungement.
Look around and find a lawyer that you feel comfortable with.See question
I was pulled over for DUI. BAC results showed 0.11 and I was arrested on spot and kept in custody for 3-4 hours. There were no accidents or property damage, just i drove over a big stone and that caused my car to skid a bit.
What you will actually get and what is the maximum punishment are two very different things. To figure out what is likely I'd need to know what court you are in and what the end plea or charge would be (assuming you plea). I'd also need to know how many priors you have A first offense OWI if plead as charged is a misdemeanor crime with jail time up to 93 days. Your license could be suspended for up to 6 months.
Your BAC wAs not that high, there are a lot of options for you. You need an OWI trained defense attorney ASAP.See question
