OWI: Operating While Intoxicated
Michigan OWI Attorney
At a law firm dedicated to defending OWI charges in the State of Michigan, Freedman Law Group aggressively pursues freedom for clients. Drunk driving charges, formally referred to as OWI (operating while intoxicated), involve operating a motor vehicle (and in some cases a bicycle) while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In Michigan, OWI can be penalized by fines, drivers' licenses suspension, community service, jail time and probation, to name a few consequences. In addition, an OWI conviction can also lead to the loss of employment, tarnished reputation and an increase in insurance rates.

Have you been charged with OWI? Get help now!
At our office, we take advantage of effective and innovative techniques to investigate your charges. A Michigan criminal defense lawyer will not only be capable of challenging your breath test, but can also interrogate any witnesses and law enforcement. In an OWI case, the arresting officer will use evidence against you such as the breath or blood test, your blood alcohol concentration from the test and your performance during the field sobriety test. It then becomes our responsibility to prove that any existing condition, such as environmental or health condition has led to this result on the test.
We will also investigate the case to determine if any evidential or procedural mistakes were made, or if the officers violated your constitutional rights in any way. Contact a Michigan OWI lawyer today to learn more about operating while intoxicated charges and to get the help you need in a troubling situation such as this.
