Fighting on Behalf of Clients across the Detroit Metro Area

Though the charge is often called driving under the influence (DUI), under Michigan law, drunk drivers are charged with OWI, or operating while intoxicated. It is illegal for a driver with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or more to operate a vehicle, even in a parking lot. However, “intoxication” can also refer to an individual under the influence of a controlled substance such as marijuana, or certain prescription drugs.

Understanding Your DUI Charge

Soon after you’re charged, you’ll want to review your case with an experienced attorney to see what defense options are available to you. Our Birmingham DUI lawyer will check to see if your charge was handled properly and, if not, bring that evidence to bear in your case.

Charges vary depending on the perceived seriousness of the offense. While a first-time offender may get a minor penalty, a repeat offense—or one that involved harm to property or people—can incur significant fines or imprisonment.

Factors that could make a DUI charge more serious include:

  • Violations that occur within seven years of a prior conviction
  • Violations that occur after two or more prior convictions
  • Impaired drivers under the age of 21 driving with a minor younger than 16 in the vehicle
  • An accident resulting in the serious injury of another person
  • An accident resulting in the death of another person
  • Having a BAC higher than 0.17%
