No matter what the specific details of your case, there is always something you can do to protect yourself and improve your case outcome.

Fight Misdemeanor or Felony Operating While Intoxicated Conviction

Our lawyers know how to challenge violations of your rights, falsely represented evidence, procedural errors or investigative mistakes, and other key issues which could help you achieve a case dismissal, favorable bargain or sentence, or even a not guilty decision. Drunk driving cases should always be taken extremely seriously, and handled only by a competent, experienced Lansing defense lawyer, as without clear and convincing evidence countering the claims made by police and prosecutors, a defendant will likely be convicted and sentenced to very harsh penalties. With so many DUI and OWI cases coming through the courtroom every day, it is difficult to find a lawyer or jury that will side with you unless you have a lawyer who is willing to do whatever it takes to demonstrate your innocence. Grabel & Associates has been working with clients in DUI cases for over 10 years, and our defense team has the knowledge and skill needed to effectively represent you both inside and outside the courtroom. Contact our firm now for a free initial case consultation, and begin working towards an outstanding case outcome.

Beat Blood Alcohol Content Evidence in a Lansing, MI Case

In addition to the mistakes listed above, many DUI/OWI cases involve BAC or Breathalyzer test evidence, which can often be challenged in court. Roadside breath tests are notoriously unreliable and inadmissible in court, and while chemical blood and breath tests administered later on are more reliable, mistakes are still regularly made which lead to false results and potential wrongful conviction. These mistakes can include:

  • Misreading Results
  • Failing to Have Proper Medical Supervision for a Blood Test
  • Failure to Properly Calibrate Breathalyzer Device
  • Procedural Errors
  • Expired Breathalyzer Operator’s License

Other case details which could help you beat a DUI charge include:

  • Inability to Produce Police Dispatch Tapes
  • Failure to Disclose Witnesses
  • Ignorance of Defendant’s Right to a Swift Trial
  • Disciplinary Issues on Police Officer’s Record
