DUI Defense Work
The Law Office of Doug Dern provides a professional DUI defense attorney in Waterford, MI for complex drunk driving cases. As an experienced attorney, I know the courts of Michigan and how to win cases. You can rest assured that as your lawyer I will put in the time and effort it takes to clear your name.
There are numerous defenses to the drunk driving arrest. You can challenge any number of things including the stop, the arrest, the evidence, the breath test, the blood draw, or the procedure, and if all else fails, you can go to trial. One of the concerns about drunk driving arrests is that if you are arrested you are guilty, and the easiest thing to do is to try to plead it down. I am an attorney that believes that the best thing you can do is fight.
In Michigan and in some jurisdictions, you can get jail time for drunk driving on a first offense, although it is not very likely. However, the law requires jail time for a second DUI offense and a third DUI offense. In fact, a third offense in Michigan is a one to five year felony. This is not something to play around with. You need an experienced DUI defense attorney who knows the ropes and who will put in the hard work for your drunk driving defense.
A low-priced attorney probably will not do the discovery, the motions, and the investigation, or put in the time and attention your case needs. Your results will be predictable and you will get what you pay for. My goal is to offer a quality defense at affordable attorney rates. I have a flat fee so that you do not wind up with a big bill at the end. My fees will be discussed after we meet and go over your options. Arrange for a free consultation for your legal concerns associated with your DUI defense.I can be reached via phone or email 24 hours a day and will make myself available to you when needed.
