Q: Will I spend time in jail if I face DUI/OWI charges?

A: Jail time is one of the penalties for all DUI offenders in the state of Michigan, even for first-time offenders. This embarrassing and humiliating experience was determined to be a deterrent for those who might choose to drive drunk. However, with the help of an experienced and skilled DUI defense attorney, you can reduce or even dismiss the risk of spending time in jail. I, Attorney Daniel Hajji, help those who face DUI charges across Oakland County, Michigan get their charges dismissed or their penalties reduced. I may be able to help you avoid jail time, heavy fines, and more.

Q: What is BAC?

A: BAC is blood alcohol concentration or blood alcohol content. It is against the law to drive with a BAC level of .08 percent or more in the state of Michigan. A driver under the age of 21 or a commercial vehicle driver cannot have a BAC higher than .02%.

Q: What is an absorption rate?

A: Absorption rate is the rate at which a person’s body absorbs and metabolizes alcohol. This can affect the point in time that a person becomes impaired, and even how impaired a person gets. Depending on when the DUI test is taken, your BAC level could have been higher than the level it was at when you were driving.

Q: Will I lose my license?

A: It depends on the details of your case. Any DUI conviction will result in the loss of full driving. However, there could be viable opportunities to defend your case to prevent the suspension of your license. It is vital to have your case evaluated at once by an experienced Farmington Hills DUI defense attorney.

Q: What is an unlawful police stop?

A: An unlawful police stop is when an officer did not have probable or reasonable cause to make the stop. If an officer stopped you for no valid reason, it is a violation of your constitutional right.

Q: What happens If I have an earlier conviction for DUI?

A: Those who are deemed to be "habitual offenders" face very serious penalties. It is dangerous to proceed for even a day without a committed and proven defense lawyer on your case. The more DUI convictions you have on your driving record, the more serious the penalties you face.

Q: How will a DUI conviction affect my professional license?

A: Some types of professional licenses can be lost with a conviction in a serious DUI case. Those who have prior convictions or have been charged with a felony DUI are in danger of losing their ability to practice their profession.
