On November 17, 2020, you may have received an emergency message on your phone or heard the news. Governor Whitmer has found a way to create lockdown conditions again legally.

Assault is by far the most common violent crime reported in America. Aggravated assault accounts for over 60% of violent crimes reported to law enforcement, with robbery at a distant second at 29%. Rape and murder are miniscule by comparison; only 6% and 1% respectively.
Have you been convicted of a DUI crime in Michigan? Are you ready to get your life back now that you’ve paid your penalties and you are committed to never drinking again? You are probably prepared to apply to receive your driver’s license back if your period of eligibility has started. One of the first things you will learn is your car will have to be fitted with an ignition interlock device. If you aren’t familiar with one of these devices, it’s best to know what to expect.
Have you been arrested for a DUI charge in Michigan? One of the first questions people often have is whether they will lose their driver’s license. And if so, what the license restrictions are.
On top of the embarrassment and hassles of going through the process, many people worry that they won’t be able to get to work or school or take care of their children’s needs without a driver’s license.

The MDHHS (Michigan Department of Health and Human Services) has issued an emergency order. Beginning November 2, 2020, bars and restaurants are legally obligated to take your name and phone number before you dine.

If you have just been pulled over, arrested, and charged with a DUI, or OWI (Operating While Intoxicated) in Michigan for the first time, you are probably still reeling from the encounter and worried about what comes next.
