Michigan takes intoxicated and impaired driving very seriously, and people who are convicted of a crime can face severe penalties. Loss of your driving privileges, fines and jail time are all possible in these cases. In addition, the criminal record that will remain if you are convicted can have a devastating impact on your life going forward. This can be especially true if you hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and you depend on the ability to drive to make your living.
Many people who have been arrested for a first-offense DWI make the mistake of assuming that they have no choice but to accept the conviction and the consequences that come with it. In fact, a good criminal defense lawyer has a number of strategies that can help to overcome even the most serious drunk driving charges.
