Was your breath test accurate? A Good lawyer will question those results.

Were you pulled over for a DUI?
Did you submit to a breath test? - there's reason to question the accuracy of those results!





The Michigan State Police dropped a BOMBSHELL on the criminal justice system:  They sent a letter to local police and prosecutors saying that a popular model of breath-testing was being pulled from use due to possible “fraudulent activities.”  As it turned out, law enforcement officials learned that DMT DataMaster representatives were not properly conducting calibration tests on the instruments yet certifying incorrectly that they had.

Need Driver's License Reinstatement?


Was your license revoked for DUI?

Are you looking for driver’s license reinstatement in Michigan?


An Ignition Interlock (technically known as a “BAIID” for Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device) is a breath alcohol analyzer, with computer logic and an internal memory. It connects with a motor vehicle’s ignition and other control systems. The BAIID measures the driver’s bodily alcohol content [BAC], and keeps the vehicle from starting if the BAC is .025 or higher.

“When does a driver have to get a BAIID device installed?”
“What are the sanctions for violating the device?”
“How can I get the device removed from my vehicle?”
“How much does the device cost?”

 These are common questions people seeking driver's license reinstatement in Michigan ask. Click here for more information about the process.

Driver's License Reinstatement MI



Equitable/hardship appeals are generally filed in the driver’s registered County of Residence Circuit Court. For chemical test refusals (called Implied Consent suspensions), these appeals are filed in the County of arrest. Either way, the person must actually file a civil lawsuit against the Secretary of State, pay a civil filing fee ($175 on average), and properly serve the representatives for the SOS (either the Attorney General or County Prosecutor, depending upon the location).

Drug Offenses and Driver's License Consequences

Shockingly, most drug offenses have driver’s license consequences, even if they have nothing to do with driving a vehicle.  In fact, simple possession of controlled substances will result in a long-term license suspension unless the offender qualifies and completes a diversion program.  Thus, finding an attorney with knowledge of these diversion programs is imperative to keeping driving privileges.

Driver's License Consequences for Motor Vehicle Offenses

Motor Vehicle Offenses:  Most crimes related to operation of a vehicle also have license consequences.  For example:  Reckless/Careless Driving; Driving While License Suspended; Unlawfully Driving Away (UDAA); Flee/Elude Police; Failure to Yield to Emergency Vehicle; and Moving Violations Causing Injury/Death.  So, having a criminal defense attorney to defend these charges is extremely important to avoid costly license consequences.

Examples of Leaving the Scene of the Accident

A mom is out grocery shopping and bumps the car next to hers. She sees only slight damage to the other car and goes about her day shopping.

A teenage driver hits a mailbox while backing out of a friend’s house and keeps on going.

A professional driving to work in the middle of the night hits a deer or small animal. He stops but goes off to work. Later, he learns that he hit and killed a bicyclist.

These are real examples of cases that Geherin Law Group has defended in the past year.  All of them ended up in charges of “Leaving the Scene of an Accident” (or what is commonly referred to as “Hit and Run.”). These cases ranged from misdemeanor charges to 15-year maximum felony offenses. Each client faced not only driver’s license sanctions, but also a criminal conviction and the real prospect of jail/prison or other loss of freedoms.
