Summary

I have been a prosecutor for Dearborn Heights, Troy, and Southfield, so I have seen the Drunk Driving law from both sides. My office is in a quiet area of Dearborn Heights, but I travel to all the courts in Wayne County (such as Westland, Livonia, and Plymouth / Canton, in addition to Dearborn and Dearborn Heights), Oakland County, and Macomb County, and often beyond that. Drunk Driving defense, which in Michigan is technically "Operating While Intoxicated" (OWI), but is commonly called DUI or DWI, is the primary part of my law practice. I also handle Driver's License Restoration hearings at the Secretary of State Administrative Hearings Office in Livonia (often called DLAD), for drivers who have lost their driving privileges but have addressed any alcohol issues and are ready to get back on the road, and I handle Driving While License Suspended or Revoked (DWLS / R / D) charges for those who have not yet reinstated their license. I also handle Traffic Tickets such as Speeding.
