DUI/OUI Charges in Michigan

If you are pulled over by a police officer who suspects you may be driving under the influence of alcohol, it is important to contact us as soon as possible. You have the right to remain silent and are constitutionally protected against unlawful search and seizure, and understanding how to utilize your rights in order to earn a favorable outcome can be extremely valuable. Michigan OUIL cases are not always straightforward, and the complex details of chemical testing, arrest procedures, and proper protection of constitutional rights could save you from a DUI conviction.

No matter where you are in Michigan, our statewide OUIL defense attorneys are available to give you an advantage in your criminal case.

Probable Cause in Michigan DUI / OUI Charges

A police officer cannot just stop you for any reason and charge you with driving under the influence, rather officers are legally required to establish probable cause before questioning or arresting you for drunk driving. If you are pulled over by a police officer without reasonable suspicion that you were drinking and driving, your DUI/OUI charges may be dismissed or reduced. Hire an attorney who will look at every detail of your case and uncover any police mistakes that could help you avoid conviction.

Michigan police must see you violating traffic laws or committing another action that gives probable cause to suspect you are drunk before stopping your vehicle. If you are speeding or swerving, an officer may legally pull you over and question you. You also have to submit to a chemical test. Failure to submit to a blood or breath test can give a police officer probable cause to arrest you for drunk driving, especially if there are open containers or other factors that would cause an officer to believe you are under the influence. Whatever the details of your DUI/OUI arrest in Michigan, contact Grabel & Associates now and discover your best next steps.
