MICHIGAN CRIMINAL LAW & YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

Felony Charge in Michigan? Call Jeffrey Buehner, PLLCCreating reasonable doubt in criminal defense requires the ability to identify weaknesses in the government's case and the communication skills to convince a jury that justice requires a verdict of 'not guilty.'

From formulating effective trial strategies to zealously advocating on behalf of our clients, we put our experience to work for our clients.

Please Call: (248) 865-9640

Thorough legal analysis of each and every aspect of a criminal defense is vital in formulating a legal defense. What some may view as a 'technicality' or 'procedural defect' could in fact be a fundamental violation of your constitutional rights. Such violations can result in the exclusion of evidence from trial. The best prosecution case can crumble to pieces if a judge rules that key evidence is inadmissible. If there is a weakness in the case against you, we can find it.

Many people under criminal investigation make the mistake of thinking that the police will 'go easy' on them if they cooperate. Do not make this mistake! A veteran police officer knows how to get a suspect to 'voluntarily' waive his or her constitutional rights and provide incriminating evidence which will compromise their defense. If you believe you are the subject of a criminal investigation, call us immediately. Do not unwittingly incriminate yourself. Remember: anything you say can and will be used against you. Let us do the talking for you.
 
KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY TO UNDERSTANDING THE CRIMINAL LAW & YOUR RIGHTS
 
Dealing with the criminal justice system can be intimidating, confusing and frightening. We provide our clients with a thorough explanation of the substance of any criminal charge, a description of each stage in the criminal justice process, and a complete analysis of any defenses and/or constitutional law issues.

DRUNK DRIVING

A drunk driving arrest can impact your life in many ways: your ability to drive, your ability to work and your freedom. Understanding your options requires the advice of an experienced Michigan drunk driving attorney.

Call us for a free consultation at (248) 865-9640.

ANALYZE YOUR LEGAL OPTIONS

Contrary to popular belief, not all drunk driving cases are 'open and shut' cases. Police do make mistakes and fail to follow proper procedure. Identifying these issues is key to understanding your legal options:
  • Was the arrest constitutionally valid? What may appear to be a 'routine' drunk driving arrest could in fact be a violation of your constitutional rights?
  • Was the client properly informed of their Chemical Test Rights?
  • Were statements taken from the client in violation of their Miranda rights?
  • Are there factors other than alcohol use that could account for any alleged driving irregularities?
  • Are there factors other than alcohol use which could have influenced the client's performance on the field sobriety tests?
  • Was the officer who operated the breath testing equipment properly qualified to operate the equipment?
  • Was the breath testing equipment functioning properly?
  • Were there any violations of the Administrative Rules for Breath Alcohol Tests?
  • Could the breath test's results be influenced by medical or other external factors?
  • Are there any inaccuracies in the arresting officer's report / citation which call into question the officer's credibility?

Understanding any potential defenses and the likelihood of success is vital to making an informed decision regarding your drunk driving/DUI/OWI charge. So is trust. We understand the impact that a drunk driving charge can have on a client's life. We know that our clients entrust us to assist them in making the right choices. We take this bond of trust very seriously.

JUVENILE DEFENSE

MICHIGAN JUVENILE DEFENSE

Having a child involved in Michigan's juvenile justice system can be confusing, frustrating and time-consuming. The decisions you and your child make could have a lasting impact upon your child's future. Making the right decisions requires thorough legal analysis, knowledge of the caseworkers and support staff and experience practicing before the referees and judges of the Family Court. We can help you.

The Family Court division of the Circuit Court handles all juvenile delinquency and status offenses (accept in cases where the juvenile is tried as an adult in Circuit Court). Delinquency proceedings involve juveniles under age 17 charged with a violation of a criminal law or ordinance or with a status offense. If the juvenile is found responsible for the offense, the court may order a wide range of dispositions ranging from probation to state custody. The Family Court's disposition can include orders that relate to you as the parent of the juvenile.

Before the court can exercise jurisdiction over a child, the child must have committed some type of offense. If your child's case is defensible, we can provide the best possible legal defense. In those cases where a juvenile disposition is likely,we have a network of professional contacts that can provide your child with the counseling and services they need. By proactively addressing any concerns the court may have at disposition, we improve the odds of your child avoiding placement in state custody (i.e.-incarceration) and/or burdened with onerous probation conditions.
