Drunk Driving Appeals (DWI,OWI,DUI)

DWI, OWI, DUI Appeals and Post-Conviction Services

Michigan Drunk Driving Appeals and Post-Conviction Services Attorneys

Serving all of Michigan including Lansing, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Saginaw, and Detroit

The following terms are often used interchangeably in Michigan:

  • OWI (operating while intoxicated)
  • DWI (driving while intoxicated)
  • DUI (driving under the influence)

If you have been convicted on any charges of drunk driving, including driving under the influence, you may think your legal options are over, but that is not necessarily true. A few of the post-conviction options you may still have include:

  • If you were convicted by trial, you may be able to file a motion for a new trial.
  • If your sentence was excessive, you may be able to appeal your sentence.
  • If you plead guilty and accepted a plea bargain that was not honored, you may be able to motion to withdraw or change your plea.
  • If you received inadequate counsel and were found guilty as a result of ineffective counsel you may be able to file a motion for Ginther Hearing.
  • If you served your time but your criminal record is holding you back, you may be able to have your record expunged. See “7 Questions to See If Your Assault Conviction is Eligible for Expungement”. Your driving record will not be cleared; however, your record for a DUI conviction may be able to be sealed from public records.

Client Reviews

Scott Grabel was kind enough to look into my situation and take his time to speak with me free of charge. Most attorneys will not do that. He gave me reassurance that I had nothing to worry about. If I am ever in need of an attorney in the future I will be calling Scott Grabel and will highly recommend him to anyone with a legal issue. G. K.
