Weeks prior to my 21st birthday I was charged with a zero tolerance OWI, refusal of preliminary breath test, and driving with a suspended license. I am months away from applying to medical school and these charges would surely have taken me out of consideration. Mike was referred by a friend and after consulting with him and doing some research it was clear that he was the best person for the job. Not only does Mike have the knowledge, experience, and persistence needed to handle matters as dicey as a DUI, he also has connections within the court system. My biggest worry was dealing with something that would forever be on my criminal record, and after months of worry Mike managed to bring my charges down to a careless driving and a littering charge (both civil infractions). I owe my future to the Nichols law firm and would highly recommend them to anyone dealing with a OWI/DUI case in the lansing area.

Mike Nichols was able to get a DUI charge thrown out for my husband after he put his truck in a ditch and was arrested although he wasn't in the vehicle at the time the police arrived on scene. Mike knows everything there is to know about breath alcohol testing, what the police are and are not allowed to to, and what the rights are of the driver. He was able to get it dismissed prior to going to a trial, and we cannot thank him enough for his knowlege, hard work, and ability to get things done. His passion for his work shows in everything he does. I highly recommend Mike and his law firm if you are every in legal trouble and want to know you have the best person supporting you through the process.

It is because of Mike and his team that I have my life back and was not convicted of an OUI (DUI). I do not think another lawyer would have got me the same result.
4 months after an accident I had I was charged with an OUI. I was in touch with Mike shortly after the accident and he helped me throughout the long (7 mo) process and gave needed support. The time and effort he gave to my case was evident and this paid off. I was not his only client during this time, but he always took time to listen to me and give me updates; full disclosure on everything and frequent contact. Because of Mike's diligent work finding out the issues with my blood test and other circumstances in my case and building a defense that pointed these out, the Prosecution dismissed the OUI a week before trial for a plea of careless driving. I felt this was fair and it allowed me to get my life back and move on.
When looking for a lawyer, I did an internet search and looked at reviews - as you may now be doing. I narrowed my potential choices, called them, and after discussing my situation and asking them questions, I picked the Nichols' Law Firm (NLF) because they were responsive and right at the start gave me the sense that they would take my case seriously and consider all possibilities to help me - not just "oh we can get this charge down a notch and you'll be fine." Mike and his team took the time to listen and follow up. During my ordeal, the people I met who were familiar with Mike (experts, other law professionals, etc.) all told me I had one of the best lawyers in the country and that if they ever needed a lawyer for a OUI, Mike would be their pick. This made me feel better about my choice as these people deal with several lawyers and thus have more knowledge about Mike and others than I did or could get from the internet. But the proof of my good choice in hiring the NLF was in the results- dismissal of the OUI for careless driving. I cannot recommend anyone more highly than Mike if you are charged with OUI/ OWI/ Reckless. He’s the best person you can have in your corner.

I was being charged with owi after an accident that required me to be air lifted to a hospital. Blood was drawn for medical use. The court acquired the blood results to review for the charges. Mike Nichols proved the blood results to be inadmissible and as a result I was not charged owi. i am very pleased with the outcome and I would highly recommended Nichols law firm.

We are eternally grateful for Mike Nichols and the way he handled our daughter’s OWI case. He is extremely knowledgeable, works tirelessly to defend your rights, and is willing to take a case to trial, if needed, to get the best result. Throughout the process, he kept us well informed, answered all of our questions, and showed such compassion for our daughter.
In the courtroom, Mike is exceptional! He listens intently and picks up on things that most people miss. When he speaks, he is articulate and knows exactly what questions to ask and how to ask them. His demeanor is professional and humble at the same time; earning the respect of everyone in the room.
Mike Nichols really is a Super Lawyer!! We can't thank him enough for giving our daughter her life back!

I'm a student at MSU and I had multiple MIP charges thrown at me over a year span and I hired Mike through a friend. He was able to get all 4 charges dismissed and even had to take a couple to jury. Mike was very professional and truly cared about my case and well being. I was always able to reach out to him if I needed advice or was in a tough position or ever had any questions. I would absolutley recommend hiring Mike Nichols.

I would recommend Mike Nichols to anyone that needs help with an OWI charge. He was confident and professional. He was not afraid to go the distance for me. He always got back to me in a timely fashion when I sent him a text or an email. I appreciate all he did for me and the outcome.

This was my first experience with the law. I was arrested for OWI (DWI), wrongfully in my mind. Being my first time I required an expert in this field, someone who inspired trust and confidence. Atty Mike Nichols and his team did that, they were top notch. He literally wrote the book on DWI and he proved it. Atty Nichols knows the best experts in the business to defend you. My job was at stake, which translates into my quality of life. Atty Nichols understood the stress I was under but was still straightforward and clear about my situation. Atty Nichols and his team worked nights and weekends, preparing for trial. That preparation was critical to a positive turnout. Alcohol was removed from my case and pled down to reckless driving, which is what it should have been from the beginning. Atty Nichols and his team earned every dollar I paid them, in fact they exceeded expectations and represented me in the best possible fashion. I can never thank them enough.

Mike Nichols saved my life. I was accused of a crime I didn't commit and hired Mile to defend me. He not only defends you with top knowledge of the law, he guides, counsels and becomes your friend. He makes you feel like you are his only case and puts you at ease. I cannot speak highly enough of everything he has done for me. He is like a pit bull and doesn't stop until he gets the outcome he wants. Mike, I thank you with all my heart for everything you have done for me, You fave me my life back.

Mike Nichols represented me in a DUI case in early 2016 that resulted in a dismissal of all charges. I had originally had a first-consult with two other attorneys about my situation and can say I was extremely disheartened. And then I found Mike Nichols! I found him by referral from friends, and he immediately made me feel like he had true hope in my case. I felt like he had my best interest in mind and the best intentions from the beginning. That he was on my side and he was going to fight for me to the end of this case. Right away, I could tell he was listening intently to everything I had to say, and he knows to ask all the right questions. He is very calm, and straight to the point. In the court room, he catches onto the smallest details and runs with them. He knows exaxtly how to approach the judge and is truly eloquent when he speaks. I cannot express enough how impressed I am with the way he conducts himself and calmly reads situations and picks out the important details that most would never pick up on. It was also quite apparent to me that he has noticeable respect in the court room by the judge. I cannot express enough how happy I am with the result of my case and every aspect leading up to it. Working with Mike Nichols was one of the best decisions I have ever made!
