DUI Lawyer Waterford MI

Waterford's Best OUI Lawyer

DUI LawyerFor OUI misdemeanor and felony charges with Court scheduled at the 51st District Court in Waterford Michigan, retaining a top tier attorney with experience defending OUI case is a wise decision.   The permanent, non-reversible sentencing results (both driving and criminal related) from a drinking and driving conviction should compel you to not go it alone in court.  For drunk driving cases, the Judges and magistrates serving at the 51st District Court are not always predictable when it comes to deciding upon bond and sentence conditions.  Your lawyer needs time to build a strong defense and construct a comprehensive defense strategy, so when it comes to finding a lawyer you should not wait. 

Searching to Retain an Experienced OUI Lawyer in Waterford Michigan To Defend You?

A conviction anywhere in Michigan for a OUI leads to some of the strictest legal penalties which is true even for someone without an OUI history.  With OUI felony convictions the stakes are even higher.  Felony OUI carries sentence conditions that are both mandatory and non-negotiable such as: either a jail or prison confinement.  For felony OUI sentences with probation you will also receive intensive help for alcohol and substance issues, an excessive amount of community service work, expensive fines and costs, and a long list of other probationary condition.    The maximum sentence for DUI 3rd Offense is 5 years, unless habitual sentencing applies. The minimum possible sentence for felony OUI is 30 days in jail or 1 year with the Michigan department of corrections.  

Misdemeanor OUI convictions can also result in intensive sentencing conditions. For a misdemeanor OUI sentence your assigned Judge has the discretion to order jail confinement and a maximum of 2 years of probation with strict, demanding probationary conditions.  

For all OUI convictions the Michigan Secretary of State will assess points and take action against your driving ability.  Depending upon your circumstances you will face either a restriction, suspension, and/or revocation of your driving privileges.  With the lack of public transportation in Michigan, this prospect is very daunting.  The best way to face any pending OUI case in Waterford or elsewhere is to not face it alone.  Hiring an experienced OUI attorney to properly and fully defend you, and following the advice of your lawyer, is a step in the right direction.
