Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs

The police do not always have the last word. An arrest for drunk driving does not always mean that the prosecutor will get a conviction or win. Hire lawyers that have the same training as the police and can get cases dismissed or substantially reduced when the evidence is flawed and you are facing any of the following charges:

  • OWPD (Drugs)
  • OWI 1st Offense
  • OWI 2nd Offense
  • OWI 3rd Offense
  • OWI with High BAC .17 or more
  • OWI with child under age 16
  • OWI Causing Serious Injury
  • OWI Causing Death
  • Refusal of Test and Implied Consent Issues
Probation Violations

You can be sent to jail or prison if you are facing a probation violation. You are entitled to a lawyer at these proceedings to protect your rights and set the record straight with the probation department and the court if you find yourself in this predicament. Contact ABDO LAW if you are being charged with a probation violation in the Macomb County Circuit Court or in any Macomb County district court. Also, we can help you get off probation by filing a motion for early termination if you have served a substantial period of probation and have been compliant.

Driver License Restoration and Appeals

The attorneys at ABDO LAW have the expertise to help you navigate the complicated Michigan Secretary of State driver license restoration process for any of the following scenarios:

  • Indefinite revocation for 2 DUI offenses within 7 years
  • Indefinite revocation for 3 DUI offenses within 10 years
  • Implied consent refusal resulting in 1-year suspension
  • BAIID violations while on a restricted license
  • A felony conviction involving a motor vehicle (fleeing and eluding)
  • OWI Causing Serious Injury
  • OWI Causing Death
Traffic Tickets: Don’t Just Accept Responsibility

It’s too late to fight a traffic ticket after you have paid it and later realize that your insurance premiums have been substantially increased. We recommend that you read our extensive article explaining why you should fight every traffic ticket and how the insurance companies are the ultimate beneficiaries of the unfair Michigan Secretary of State point system. Some of the most serious traffic matters are criminal offenses which include: reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and driving while license suspended. Criminal traffic violations can carry up to 6 points, possible jail and up to 2 years probation. Contact ABDO LAW to avoid points and avoid serious traffic matters from going on your record.

Estate Planning and Probate

Estate Planning: A solid estate plan is one that will protect your assets, protect your beneficiaries and give you peace of mind. The basic foundation of a solid estate plan consists of a last will and testament, trusts, power of attorney and designated health care representative. Effective estate plans involve your family, your attorney, your financial planner and your tax advisor. The right estate plan will give you comfort should you become disabled or upon death. Contact us for a solid estate plan that protects your assets and beneficiaries under any conditions or circumstances.

Probate Proceedings: We can efficiently handle estate and probate proceedings after the death of a loved one. In most cases, ABDO LAW can get bank accounts and assets transferred within a few days and accomplish closure of the estate with 6 months. We work with closely with the personal representative, family members and tax advisor to finalize estate proceedings.
