Aggressive Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys in Kalamazoo & Grand Rapids

Being charged with drunk driving is a serious matter and must be handled properly in order to protect your rights, your livelihood and your criminal record. As with any criminal charge, the burden of proof is on the state. You need an attorney who will make sure that you are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Defending Against Drunk Driving Charges

At Willis Law, we provide skilled representation to people in West Michigan who find themselves facing drunk driving charges such as:

OWI and OWVI Defense

Operating a vehicle while intoxicated means that you were unable to safely operate the vehicle due to a high level of drugs or alcohol in your system. It is imperative that you hire an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights. Penalties for first offenses can include up to 93 days in jail, significant fines, installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle and more. Penalties increase exponentially on multiple offenses.

You do not have to fail a blood test or a field sobriety test in order to be arrested for operating a vehicle while visually impaired. This determination is at the discretion of the arresting officer, but the penalties can be just as severe as an OWI conviction. You can rely on us to get to the truth behind your arrest and to protect your rights throughout the entire process.

OWI Resulting in Death

Simply stated, a conviction for an OWI crime that resulted in death will forever change your life. Our attorneys understand the gravity of the situation you find yourself in, and we will stop at nothing to give you the best defense possible. Our extensive negotiation and litigation experience will be invaluable to obtain the best possible outcome aimed at securing your freedom or reducing the potential penalties you might face.

What We Can Do to Help You

Our drunk driving defense lawyers have a great deal of knowledge and experience and know that there are a number of issues we can look at to help you fight these charges and protect your rights. For example, if you have been charged with drunk driving, our hand-picked counselors can help you connect with a local AA chapter and direct you to appropriate alcohol education or one-on-one counseling.

We also thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding traffic stops and arrests to make sure evidence was not obtained unconstitutionally. If it was, we fight to have the evidence barred from the case and therefore strengthen the bargaining position of our client.
