There is only one way to honestly and objectively develop the reputation as the best DUI lawyer in Michigan and that is to do it the hard way – earn it. It’s easy for a lawyer to post on a website “best DUI lawyer in Michigan,” it’s quite another to spend decades doing the hard work to earn this distinction.
So how does one become the best? Considering the subject matter, earning the reputation requires dedication, focus and a commitment to excellence. Dedication is required due to the complexity of the subject matter. Most lawyers attend law school after first obtaining an undergraduate degree in a related field of study, such as political science, English or philosophy. Few lawyers have science degrees, and the old joke among lawyers is “I went to law school because I wasn’t good at math.”
A science education is helpful because DUI cases with drugs or alcohol almost always involve a chemical test of the driver’s breath blood or urine. The science behind this testing must be understood because without it a lawyer cannot adequately represent his slash her client in court. If you can’t beat the test, you can’t win the case.
