The laws in Michigan governing drinking and driving have changed. Michigan now has what is known as a “super” drunk driving law, with far stricter sentencing. If you have been arrested for or charged with a DUI, you want an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to protect your interests, someone with a thorough understanding of the laws and procedures, who has successfully helped others in similar circumstances.
At The Smith Law Offices, P.C., we provide highly focused representation to people throughout southeast Michigan, including individuals charged with driving under the influence.

When you hire us to defend you on a DUI charge, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your case, including whether the police had probable cause to make the traffic stop. We will verify that you were properly advised of your rights and that any field sobriety, blood alcohol or Breathalyzer tests were correctly administered.
We also defend minors who have been charged with illegal possession of alcohol. We represent minors who have been charged with drinking and driving, and we can help you expunge an offense that occurred before you were 21.
