Pleading Guilty to an OWI in Michigan

Question: Is it ever a good idea to plead guilty to an OWI in Michigan?

Answer: The answer to this is a little more complicated because to say it would never be ok indicates that an OWI could not be a good outcome. There are times where an OWI is a good outcome. In cases of multiple offense scenarios, a first offense OWI outcome might be preferable. However, the best thing to do is to obtain an attorney to review your case and the facts of your case and then sit down to discuss what your goals are so that the attorney and you together can find the right type of resolution. But to foreclose the possibility that an OWI could be a valuable plea would generally ignore some of the practicalities of OWI defense.

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.
