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.
A high blood alcohol content (BAC of .17 or higher) is one of the operating while intoxicated crimes, but it has harsher consequences. If you are charged with a super drunk crime, you face the following penalties:
If you are convicted of super drunk driving, or if you plead guilty to a high BAC crime, you will be offered the opportunity to have a restricted license after 45 days, but this subjects you to the jurisdiction of the DLAD (now known as the Administrative Hearings Section). On balance, you want to try to avoid being under the jurisdiction of Administrative Hearings Section.
Important: If you are charged with a high BAC case in Oakland County, the state prosecutor's office will not reduce these charges. You must plan on preparing for a trial at your earliest opportunity.
