Emotional Effects of a DUI Charge in MI

As soon as you are accused of drunk driving, you will likely feel as if you’ve already been labeled guilty, as police and prosecutors work quickly to attempt to convict you. When you are faced with false accusations based on questionable evidence, it can be extremely stressful trying to prove your innocence when everyone else seems inclined to blindly accept everything the police say.

The first thing most clients ask is “what is the worst case scenario?” and throughout a drunk driving case, these potentially life changing effects stay on a person’s mind. If you are to lose your license or get a criminal record, you may lose your job. By working with an attorney early on in your case, you can start developing a plan of action and you will know exactly what your attorney is doing to combat every potential negative outcome possible. As your case progresses, our experienced attorneys will provide you with all the information you need, and answer any questions you may have about the criminal justice process. Contact our firm immediately for a free consultation and learn more about our effective DUI defense strategies.

Financial Impact of a Michigan Drunk Driving Conviction

The first thing people think about when considering the financial cost of a DUI charge is legal fees, and many may assume that by cutting costs on legal fees, the overall financial burden of a DUI charged can be decreased. Unfortunately, this is very rarely the case, as you will require an exceptional attorney to help you navigate your case and fight potentially life-altering penalties which can result in drunk driving cases. Paying for a good attorney who has experience working in Michigan DUI and OWI cases will significantly increase your chances of avoiding a lengthy license suspension, fines, jail time, and other unnecessary costs which can add up throughout the criminal justice process. You can expect hundreds of dollars in initial costs for towing or impound fees, hundreds of dollars in court costs, a fee for DUI classes, as much as $500 or more to get your license back, potentially thousands more in car insurance costs annually, and potential job loss, scholarship cancellation, loss of loans or inability to apply for loans, and more. Work with a lawyer who can guide you through the DUI defense process and help keep costs to a minimum while providing exceptional legal defense aimed at helping you achieve a great case result. When it comes to criminal defense lawyers, you get what you pay for in most cases, though it always helps to read reviews and rankings when choosing which attorney to hire. Grabel & Associates has been recognized as a top tier defense firm for over a decade, and our nationally ranked attorneys are highly respected in courts statewide.
