Charged with drunk driving in Michigan? Enlist powerful defense!
If you are dealing with a DUI charge, it is essential that you don't talk with law enforcement or investigators until you are represented by a DUI defense lawyer. It is true that what you say will be used against you. As being arrested and charged can be an upsetting situation, many individuals make the mistake of chatting with police officers who are carefully taking note of everything you say to use in the case against you. Most of the time you are being recorded anyway.
There are many possible defenses for OWI charges, and Trevor Garrison is familiar with all of them. As each case is unique, in order to determine what can be done to defend your case, it is vital to have Mr. Garrison review the evidence against you to determine how best to move forward with your defense. He may want to obtain the in-car video depicting the stop of your vehicle and your arrest. The police officer's "reason" for stopping your car may not coincide with what was captured by his in-car video. In these extreme situations, a motion to suppress the evidence may be necessary. The first action you must take after your arrest is to contact a criminal defense attorney to defend you, advise you, and protect your rights.
