Sense of Fulfillment From Defending Michigan Cases

Question: Tell me about the sense of fulfillment you get out of your career defending clients from Michigan drunk driving charges.

Answer: One thing I've learned about intoxicated driving cases is that the people who are accused of this crime are not by any means stereotypical criminals. Anyone who drinks alcohol and then drives, which, by the way, is not at all illegal, can find themselves accused of this crime—no criminal intent is necessary.

This means that I am able to help fellow citizens through a very traumatic event in their lives, like being arrested for a crime. The greatest fulfillment comes when we, meaning the entire firm as a team, help a person win back their lives, meaning we help them get through the trauma of being arrested and charged with a criminal case, and in many ways, help them put their lives back to the place it was before they got arrested—meaning, make it like it never happened. We also are able, in some cases, to make it even better for the client, and that's where I get the greatest satisfaction.

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.
