We will also provide you with all the relevant details about the fees and the legal process of how the DUI proceedings work.
Case Investigation: After our initial consultation, we will conduct a thorough investigation of your case, including reviewing police reports, witness accounts, conducting field investigations, and more. We aim to gather as much evidence as possible to help you win your case. This is paramount to building an appropriate legal strategy, knowing how to defend a DUI case requires a commanding knowledge of Michigan DUI law.
Evaluation of Evidence: Once the investigation is complete, our team of legal experts will evaluate the evidence that has been gathered up to this point. This will help us determine our strategy and identify any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, which we can exploit in your defense.
Legal Strategy: After reviewing the evidence, we will come up with a legal strategy to best defend your rights and interests in the DUI case. We do this with our extensive knowledge of the supreme court decisions, Michigan DUI laws, and procedural regulations so that we can identify the most effective legal tactics.
