People vs. BJW

Court: DLAD – Port Huron
Hearing Officer Modelski

The client was arrested for OUIL and since he refused the breath test, was also charged with an implied consent violation. After meeting with the client, we immediately filed an appeal of the implied consent matter, thereby demanding a hearing with the Secretary of State's Driver License Appeal Division. [Failure to file an appeal, or failing to win the appeal once filed, results in an automatic six-month license revocation and six points are added to the violator's driving record].

On the hearing date, we appeared with and on behalf of our client. The arresting officer failed to appear. After waiting 20 minutes we requested a dismissal. The Hearing Officer agreed and dismissed the implied consent violation. As a result, no license sanctions were imposed, and the client was able to continue his driving otherwise unrestricted

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Patrick Barone is the ONLY choice for DUI defense. He was realistic from the start and made it a point to look at my case before taking my money. As a business owner, when I think of attorneys, I think of the "shark infested waters. Patrick is a shark alright, but his prey is not the client; it's justice for his client. Ten stars Patrick!!

Attorney Patrick Barone was very helpful and helped me understand the charge and sentence absolutely clearly. He also guided me through step by step helping me form a statement. His instructions were clear and detailed. It was obvious he cared about me understanding every important detail within my case. I would absolutely recommend this defense firm to anyone in need.

The Barone Defense Firm is the firm I recommend. They are truly concerned about the person, not just the legal issue, but the person as well. They are the most knowledgeable defense firm that I am aware of, having actually written the book on DWI Defense. If you are faced with a DWI you will not find a more professional and skilled law firm. But, most importantly, they care about how the accused individual recovers his or her life when the case is complete. Very remarkable group of lawyers. William H.
