When your reputation, freedom and driver’s license are on the line following a DUI arrest in Ann Arbor, you understandably want the “best” attorney in town. After all, you don’t want to feel uncomfortable with your chosen advocate---who’s often the only person standing between you and a tough, no-nonsense judge or an aggressive prosecutor. So how do you find the “best?”
Generally, the best DUI Attorneys in Ann Arbor are those who:
- Devote a substantial majority of their practice to defending DUI cases in and around Ann Arbor;
- Have a long track record of success in litigating DUI cases—both in terms of motions and trials—and not just in securing plea bargains;
- Attend seminars and training to stay on top of the ever-changing DUI laws; and
- Have received awards/accolades specific to DUI Defense.
