Michigan DUI Attorney

If you are facing a Michigan DUI charge . . .

I can help! My name is William Maze, and I am one of Michigan's most widely recognized DUI attorneys (technically known as an OWI charge in Michigan or operating while intoxicated). I have 20 years of experience fighting Michigan DUI charges. I have fought more Michigan drunk driving charges than any other lawyer in the State of Michigan. I focus on discovering evidence that will help you beat a Michigan DUI charge, motions that will cripple the prosecutor's case against you, and taking cases to trial before a jury. I have been an active member of the National College for DUI Defense since 2005, and I have learned the science and strategies that you need in your corner fighting a Michigan DUI charge. A Michigan drunk driving charge is serious, and your immediate concern should be how to select the right DUI lawyer for your case.

What my clients are saying about me:


Did you know that most Michigan DUI lawyers do not know how field sobriety tests are performed? Every Michigan DUI attorney should be trained in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing used by Michigan DUI enforcement officers, but few have bothered to take this course. I took the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Standardized Field Sobriety Training Course in 2005. I have subsequently gone on to become an instructor, and I have been qualified by numerous courts as an expert witness in field sobriety testing. I am the only Michigan DUI attorney to have ever testified as an expert witness in drunk driving cases regarding field sobriety testing.


Did you know that most Michigan DUI lawyers do not know how the breath machine works? Every Michigan DUI attorney should be trained on Michigan's breath testing instrument the Datamaster. In addition to countless hours of breath testing lectures that I have attended through the National College for DUI Defense and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, I attended a specialized course offered for lawyers at National Patent Analytical Systems. At that time, NPAS was the manufacturer of the BAC Datamaster and the Datamaster DMT, which was subsequently sold to Intoximeters. I also own two Datamaster machines and the two most commonly employed preliminary breath testing instruments (PBTs) in Michigan, the Lifeloc FC10 and the Alcosensor III. I have been qualified by several courts as an expert witness in the Datamaster, being permitted to provide testimony on drunk driving cases on behalf of a party.

What other attorneys are saying about me:


Did you know that most Michigan DUI lawyers have never taken a case to trial? The vast majority of so-called Michigan DUI attorneys are pleading people to operating while visibly impaired as quickly as possible. The few Michigan DUI attorneys who brag about going to trial are usually referring to their time at the prosecutor's office, when I demanded a jury trial! Law school doesn't prepare an attorney to handle Michigan DUI cases, and trial advocacy is usually limited to a single elective course. I have participated in numerous criminal advocacy programs, including weeks long programs by the NCDC and CDAM. But what really counts? Actually going before a jury and taking a case to trial. I have a proven track record 20 years long that establishes my reputation as a real Michigan DUI attorney trial lawyer.


Did you know that most Michigan DUI lawyers do not even know how to read a blood test result from Michigan State Police? Every Michigan DUI attorney should have at least a rudimentary understanding of GC-FID and GC-MS and be able to read and interpret a blood test result. But I had a medical surgeon bring his case to me after another Michigan DUI lawyer had pleaded him guilty to impaired driving. It was alleged that this surgeon had been driving drunk on his way to the hospital. A blood test was performed on the doctor after he was arrested. His attorney reviewed the blood evidence in court and convinced his client that there was no way to defend the case. When I reviewed the same blood evidence, it clearly and unequivocally established that the doctor was actually innocent of driving drunk. You can't make this stuff up! I have taken advanced course work in blood and urine testing, and I know and understand how the Michigan State Police perform testing and analysis. I have taken numerous classes in GC-FID, and I have several of the nation's best experts at my disposal to help me interpret complex scientific data.
