Our attorneys are prepared to handle the full spectrum of traffic violations in Michigan, whether you are a Michigan resident or an out-of-state resident. Some of the offenses our Grand Rapids traffic violations attorneys have handled include:

- Careless and reckless driving
- Driving on a suspended or revoked license — driver's license appeals
- License violations
- Unlawful use of a vehicle

Unlawful Use of a Vehicle
To obtain a conviction for the unlawful use of a vehicle, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that:
- The vehicle in question belonged to someone else
- You actually used the vehicle
- You did not have the owner's permission or authority to use the vehicle
- You used the vehicle knowing you lacked the proper authority
While the penalties for this crime are not as steep as for the unlawful driving away of a vehicle, a conviction still could bring a two-year prison sentence followed by years of probation. This is why it is important to speak to a lawyer who can refute the key elements of this crime and help you put your legal issues in the past.
Reckless Driving Causing Serious Bodily Injury
Cars and other vehicles are an important part of everyday life. When used incorrectly, however, they can become a weapon capable of causing serious damage to person and property. Knowing this, state prosecutors aggressively pursue reckless driving convictions, especially in cases where a person was seriously injured.
Our lawyers provide a thorough defense against reckless driving causing serious bodily injury charges. We understand what is at stake if you are unable to properly protect your rights, which is why we fight every step of the way to secure the best outcome possible.
