Contesting Your OWI Charge
If your blood or breath test has come back positive, I can assess the facts of your case to determine whether error or negligence by the police is an element of your case. A thorough evaluation of the tests can determine whether they were inaccurately given and whether the instruments were properly calibrated.
I can use my experiences and skills to determine:
- Whether the equipment is in appropriate working condition
- Amount of time elapsed between the arrest and administration of tests
- Whether the test administrator was given proper training
- Whether any factors (such as medical conditions) interfered with results
My firm can protect your constitutional rights, so contact my firm today!
Implied Consent in Michigan
In the state of Michigan, implied consent law requires you to give your consent to take a breath or blood test when suspected of operating a vehicle while intoxicated if you are driving within the state. Although you have the legal right to not submit to the test, penalties will result. By refusing to submit, you will accrue six points on your driving record.
