Oakland County Drunk Driving Lawyer

Drunk driving occurs all over the state of Michigan. However, major interstate highways are one of the most common places for officers to arrest for OWI. Some of these highways include Interstate 75 (the Walter P. Chrysler Freeway), Interstate 95 (Jeffries Freeway), Interstate 275, and Interstate 696 (Walter P. Reuther Freeway). OWI arrests also commonly occur on local roadways, especially in larger intersections.

Whether you were originally stopped on Woordward Avenue in Pontiac, Rochester Road in Rochester or Rochester Hills, or Ortonville Road in Clarkston, it is important to remember that an arrest is not the same as a conviction. Dallo Law, P.C. can investigate the circumstances surrounding your OWI arrest. Attorney Dallo can determine whether any errors by law enforcement occurred so he can suppress incriminating evidence they obtained. J. Dallo is familiar with all types of DUI-related offenses in Michigan from OWI refusal to DUI vehicular manslaughter.
