DUI Lawyer in Grand Rapids
Were You Arrested for Drunk Driving in Western Michigan?
Throughout the decades we have been in practice at Blanchard Law, our Grand Rapids DUI attorneys have seen many cases unfold. Many individuals make the mistake of believing they do not need representation. DUI cases, however, are actually quite difficult to defend despite being a commonly committed crime. Knowledge of DUI procedures and standards allows our firm to provide you with top-notch representation.
Working To Reduce or Dismiss Your Charges
As your legal defense, we work against the prosecution's case in order to get the charges against you dropped or reduced whenever possible. A conviction for DUI can carry heavy consequences, affecting your personal life and reputation. For example, you could face time in jail, the loss of your license, mandatory alcohol counseling, and a permanent criminal record.
A few examples of the defense strategies our firm may explore include:
- Field Sobriety Testing was not administered properly
- No probable cause to pull you over
- Breathalyzer was not administered properly
- The officer administering the test was not trained
- The Breathalyzer equipment was not calibrated properly
