DUI Probation Lawyer

OWI Defense Attorneys Representing Clients in Ann Arbor, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Lansing, and Throughout Michigan with Post-Conviction and Probation Violation Issues

In Michigan, probation is a fairly common sentence for individuals convicted of an OWI offense, particularly first-time offenders. Essentially, probation is a "test period" where an individual has the opportunity to prove to the judge that he or she is capable of complying with the law, and refraining from operating a motor vehicle when intoxicated due to the consumption of alcohol and/or drugs. At Grabel & Associates, we understand the serious consequences of violating probation, and are dedicated to fighting on your behalf to protect you from further punishment.

Whether you have been charged with DUI, OWI, OUIL, or any drunk driving offense, our talented team of Michigan DUI attorneys is capable of providing outstanding legal representation throughout every stage of the process. Severe consequences face you when convicted of operating a vehicle with a BAC (blood alcohol content) higher than 0.08%, including potential jail time, community service, driver's license suspension, fines, and DUI probation. Probationary terms and the length of time you will be on probation depend on the details of your unique case. Frequently, those convicted are unaware of every detail or term of their probation. It is critical you contact our office now if you have questions regarding probation, or have been arrested for drunk driving.

  • Payment of court costs and fines
  • Community service or participation in a work program
  • Reporting to probation officer regarding any potential new criminal charges you may be facing, or encounters with police/law enforcement

Client Reviews

Scott and Bob achieved exactly the result I was looking for. They were prompt and effective. If I ever have any other legal issues (which hopefully I don't)... I'd certainly work with them again. M. C.
Scott Grabel was kind enough to look into my situation and take his time to speak with me free of charge. Most attorneys will not do that. He gave me reassurance that I had nothing to worry about. If I am ever in need of an attorney in the future I will be calling Scott Grabel and will highly recommend him to anyone with a legal issue. G. K.
Highly recommended lawyer! Mr. Grabel is very professional and knowledgable. My case happened suddenly on Saturday, but Mr. Grabel is 24/7 on call, which was what I needed. I called on Saturday night and the front desk told me I would hear back from the lawyer shortly. Only 30mins later, I got a call from Mr. Grabel himself and he eased my anxiety quickly by explaining the situation and options I had. I knew I was in good hands. ... Z. W.
