Turn To Scozzari Law, PLLC, For Drunk Driving Defense

Drunk driving in Michigan is a common criminal charge. However, despite how often people face charges for drunk driving, the consequences are minor. If the police arrest you for drunk driving, you should do two things: avoid saying anything and reach out to a skilled, aggressive attorney.

At Scozzari Law, PLLC, attorney James Scozzari is an attorney ready to take on the criminal charges of clients across the Grand Rapids area. He has fought many operating while intoxicated (OWI) charges and has a respected courtroom reputation as a hardnosed defense attorney. He can help you get back in control of your charges.

Michigan’s OWI Laws Are Strict

No matter what you may think, when police pull you over with the suspicion of drunk driving, you are facing significant trouble. You are subject to the following penalties:

  • Jail time: ranging from a maximum of 93 days in jail for a first offense to five years for a third or subsequent offense
  • Fines: ranging from $100-$500 for a first offense to $500-$5,000 for a third offense
  • Community service: ranging from 360 hours for a first offense to 60-100 days for a third

Additionally, if you have a significantly high blood alcohol content (BAC), the potential penalties become significantly more severe. You may also face charges for “operating while visibly impaired” (OWVI), a less severe and easier-to-prove charge.

Regardless of the charge, a conviction can lead to significant statutory penalties and leave a mark on your record that may follow you. You deserve a strong, thorough defense to protect your name and freedom.
