Have you ever been at the wrong place at the wrong time? Detained for a Michigan DUI after leaving a company party?
Often simple mistakes can lead to criminal charges.
At Grabel & Associates, our criminal defense lawyers understand that things are not always as they appear to police officers. Many times simple explanations exist that can lead to charges being dismissed, reduced, or not filed.
Sometimes people fail field sobriety tests (FSTs) due to fatigue or lack of coordination. Our DUI defense team will challenge FSTs. Other times, breath tests provide faulty readings – displaying a higher post-arrest result due to increased alcohol absorption over time.
As a result of their over 100 combined years of experience, the lawyers at Grabel & Associates know what to look for – what errors police may have made – and what strategies provide you the best defense when you’ve been charged with any Michigan criminal charges.
