Royal Oaks DUI/OWI Attorneys

Handling DUI Cases throughout the Detroit Metro Area

Have you been arrested recently for driving under the influence? A DUI – or an OWI, as it is technically called in Michigan – is a serious offense. Many DUI cases might appear to be very cut and dry and the evidence could look very damaging. However, as with any other type of criminal charge, you are innocent until proven guilty.

Regardless of the circumstances of your situation, The Law Office of John Little, PLLC can build a solid defense on your behalf. Our team of experienced Royal Oak OWI attorneys can provide sound legal advice and relentless effort as we work to achieve a favorable outcome in your case.

Contact us online or call (248) 809-1402 to request a consultation with our team.

Understanding DUI Charges

If you are pulled over and found to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher, you can be charged with OWI. You can also be charged with this crime if you have any amount of a controlled substance in your system.

Police officers may ask to conduct a preliminary breath test and/or a chemical BAC test. Due to Michigan’s implied consent law, you are required to submit to these tests. Refusal to cooperate means that you are violating the implied consent law and will be subject to penalties.

Possible Penalties for OWI

The penalties for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol are particularly harsh, especially if it is not your first DUI or if you caused an accident or injured anyone as a result.

Generally speaking though, you may face:

  • Fines
  • Jail time
  • Community service
  • License suspension
  • Mandatory ignition interlock device installation

For those who face DUI charges and have been convicted of one or multiple DUI's before, the penalties could be much worse.

Possible Defense Strategies for DUI Charges

Sometimes, authorities don’t follow proper procedures, which means your arrest is completely invalid and the charges can be thrown out. Other times, you might have been charged when you weren’t actually drunk. It’s also possible that the equipment used to test your BAC was faulty.

At The Law Office of John Little, PLLC, we explore every possible angle to ensure that we uncover all the evidence surrounding your case. Our Royal Oak DUI attorneys leave no stone unturned, taking advantage of all of our resources.
