OWI Charge Reduced to Reckless Driving

Few criminal defense lawyers ever achieve a reduction of OWI to reckless driving. Our lawyers have obtained this result multiple times.

How to Get an OWI Charge Reduced to Reckless Driving

The aggressive and reputable defense lawyers with LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. were able to get an OWI charge reduced to reckless driving. The allegation was that the client was operating while intoxicated by the consumption of alcohol. This charge was in Wayne County, Michigan. When Loren Dickstein was retained, he went promptly to work diligently and thoroughly reviewing the police reports, records, and recordings relative to the case. When it was time for Court, Mr. Dickstein was prepared to show the prosecuting attorney why they could not convict our client of this offense. He convinced the prosecutor that the field sobriety tests were not performed correctly and that the client was likely not under the influence. The prosecutor agreed to dismiss the OWI charge, and the client pled guilty to reckless driving.

People faced with criminal charges must make sure that their rights are protected. It happens too often that people plead guilty to “get it over with.” If Mr. Dickstein were not prepared and did not have the expertise to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the original charge, our client would likely have had an alcohol conviction on his criminal record now. Alcohol convictions can have far-reaching adverse effects on someone’s personal life, employment, etc.

How Top Defense Attorneys Get OWI Charges Reduced

Successfully navigating the complexities of Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) charges to secure a reduction to lesser offenses such as reckless driving, careless driving, or even non-alcohol-related offenses, is a hallmark of top OWI defense lawyers. At LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., our approach to these cases is rooted in deep, comprehensive analysis and an understanding of the law and the practical workings of the courtroom. Our seasoned attorneys start by delving into the specifics of the traffic stop that led to the OWI charge, questioning whether law enforcement had a legitimate basis for the stop. This examination is crucial, as any flaw in the rationale for the stop can undermine the prosecution’s evidence and potentially result in its suppression.

Furthermore, our legal team meticulously evaluates the procedures and accuracy of field sobriety and chemical tests (including breath, blood, or urine) used to establish intoxication. We scrutinize these aspects for procedural errors or inaccuracies, such as the calibration and maintenance of the devices used for testing, the proper administration of tests, and the qualifications of the individuals conducting the tests. This detailed analysis is pivotal, as any deviation from required protocols can significantly impact the validity of the evidence against our clients.

This rigorous attention to detail and strategic questioning of every facet of the prosecution’s case enables LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. to advocate for charge reductions effectively. Our attorneys leverage their extensive experience and knowledge to challenge the charges our clients face, aiming to secure outcomes that have a less severe impact on their lives and futures.
