I have personally handled a variety of criminal offenses that have taken place at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. These include many "Sterile Environment" TSA checkpoint violations for possession of a prohibited item, such as a knife, gun, or other weapon. I have also handled several breach of airport security cases that have made the news. I have also successfully handled several lessor known offenses that don't grab headlines, such as counterfeiting charges brought in state court by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Detroit Metropolitan Port of Entry, and drug and asset forfeiture cases brought by CHIEF, the "Combined Hotel Interdiction Enforcement Task Force."
I have been a member of the National College for DUI Defense for nearly a decade and a half, and I have received some of the best training in all areas of law, science, and advocacy related to drunk driving and drugged driving in the country. I have handled more drunk driving cases than nearly any other lawyer in Michigan, and I have been qualified as an expert witness by numerous Michigan courts in field sobriety testing as well as breath testing. I regularly teach other lawyers DUI and trial advocacy skills related to drunk driving in Michigan as well as in other states. If you are charged with a drunk driving crime, I can offer you the highest quality representation in DUI defense.
