Police Destroy Evidence – At The Law Office of Gerald F. Chefalo, we start fighting for you from the moment you hire us, before it’s too late. Other attorneys won’t do anything for weeks or months, after police have destroyed evidence that could have helped you.
Convictions don’t disappear – Alcohol-related offenses cannot be expunged. Even if you finish probation, the charge stays on your driving record.
Time is short – Video tapes are often destroyed within two to four weeks, and if you refused to take a breathalyzer test, you only have 14 days to contact the Secretary of State to challenge a mandatory one year suspension of your license.
If you have been charged with an alcohol related crime, you may feel helpless and uncertain of your rights. At The Law Office of Gerald F. Chefalo, our attorneys have extensive experience defending alcohol related crimes throughout Northern Michigan. We know the courts, we know the judges and we know how to help you. The first thing you must do, is contact an attorney immediately. We are available 24/7 just for this reason. We have someone answering the phones to assist you.
Trust our experience. You need a legal team familiar with the court system to ensure the best results for your case. There are many different alcohol-related offenses in Michigan. Our comprehensive knowledge of Michigan drunk driving law is your best defense. We can be your legal advocate. CALL TODAY.
Let us start working on your defense including seeking a dismissal, negotiating a lesser charge, minimizing penalties, aggressively defending you in court, pursuing the most lenient sentence possible, limiting court appearances, and arranging for one time appearances for out-of-state clients.
You have a right to defend yourself. Make the police and prosecutors prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. But to challenge the government’s case, you need attorneys that understand the law and the science involved in drunk driving cases. WE ARE PROVEN FIGHTERS!
