Fatal Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys in Kalamazoo, Michigan

OWI causing death is a new charge with a long history. It used to be called vehicular manslaughter. Now, in addition to OWI causing death, people can also be charged with reckless driving causing death.

The criminal penalties for OWI causing death are extreme. Even with no prior criminal record, there is a high likelihood that a convicted individual will spend time in prison, possibly as much as 15 years. In severe cases where the accused has a previous record, the prosecution may even decide to pursue charges of second-degree murder.

You can rely on our attorneys to be your strongest advocate. We will challenge the prosecution's evidence and push to negotiate a plea agreement that protects your record and minimizes your exposure to a prison sentence. If a plea agreement cannot be reached, we will fight for your rights at trial and pursue all options for limiting the damage.

Let us put our aggressive defense on your side. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
