Do You Need a Lawyer for DUI Charges in Michigan?
While you can attempt to handle a DUI charge alone, this decision can put you at a disadvantage in the legal arena. Michigan takes DUI charges very harshly and has several possible charges you could face, each with different repercussions.
Police officers and prosecutors can try to push you through the legal system to secure a conviction. However, you do not have to face these attempts on your own. Instead, you can reach out to a DUI attorney for help.
Under the Sixth Amendment, you can request legal assistance immediately after an arrest. Exercise your rights by contacting a lawyer before you answer any questions related to your DUI charges.

Can a DUI Be Dropped in Michigan?
Yes, in some cases, DUI lawyers can get your DUI charges dropped. Generally, the court dismisses DUI charges if there’s insufficient evidence to support a conviction or if police officers violate your rights.
Your lawyer may submit a motion to dismiss after filing motions to block evidence. Your lawyer might take this step even if you failed a BAC test during your arrest. You do not face criminal charges on your record if the court drops your charges.
How Else Do Lawyers Resolve DUI Charges?
Sometimes, lawyers use other strategies to handle DUI offenses in Michigan. For example, our team may negotiate with the prosecution to reduce your charges. We may also represent you in court. Let us assess your specific needs as we develop a strategy to help.
We’re not just lawyers. We’re passionate advocates who will ensure that your voice is heard and your rights are protected.
How Do Lawyers Combat BAC Test Results in Michigan?
Many drivers worry that a failure on a BAC test can mean a guaranteed DUI conviction. However, BAC tests have a reputation for providing false positive results if police officers do not perform them correctly.
Ensure that you provide your lawyer with information about the exact steps taken by the police officer who stopped you for a DUI in Michigan. For example, pay attention to how long the officer waited to administer the test and how they stored it afterward.
Additionally, the test lab could make a mistake, leading to a false result. Therefore, we may request access to a sample of your blood to run independent testing in some cases. Learn more with our DUI lawyers in Michigan.
We know how to get our clients the results they need in the toughest legal arenas.
How Much Will a DUI Cost You in Michigan?
The penalties for DUI charges vary based on:
- Your BAC at the time of your arrest
- The amount of previous DUI convictions on your record
- Whether or not you drove under the influence of a controlled substance
You could expect to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars in fines. In addition, many DUI convictions result in jail or prison time and the suspension of your driver’s license by the Michigan Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
Additionally, you may have to attend an alcohol treatment program. All these penalties can make your life much more difficult.
Fortunately, you can take steps to avoid a conviction by working with DUI lawyers to minimize the costs of a DUI.
You will always work directly with your attorney throughout your case.
How Much Is a DUI Lawyer in Michigan?
Michigan DUI attorneys charge different rates for their services. Some lawyers vary their rates based on their experience or the complications associated with your case. We recommend asking about charges when contacting a law firm for a free consultation.
While criminal defense lawyers charge for their services, working with a lawyer can save you money by helping you avoid expensive penalties for a conviction.
