Stopped for a possible DUI?

Any person, with almost any amount of alcohol in their system, can be accused of driving while under the influence and receive a citation. If you are driving after drinking alcohol you are responsible for any accident that you may be involved in, regardless of the situation. There are steps you can take to protect yourself against a DUI: Obey traffic laws. This might seem like common sense but you need to be on your best driving behavior to avoid a DUI. A police officer needs probable cause to make a traffic stop. Use your blinker, make a complete halt at that four-way stop, go the speed limit. Although you might be following all of the rules you may still get pulled over. Be prepared. Be courteous. You see the blue and red lights flashing behind you. Pull off to the right side of the road and put both hands on your steering wheel. This action will help the officer feel comfortable about his/her safety. Roll down your window at the appropriate time to speak to the officer. Keep important documents handy. Be sure to keep your insurance card and registration in a convenient place so you don’t have to search through your glove box. Ask the officer for permission before you reach for the documents. Know your rights. Be polite, but be sure not to admit anything. You may want to be overly chatty to relieve anxiety, but resist this urge. Any admission will be used against you. You are under no obligation to provide the officer with any information beyond that on your driver’s license, vehicle registration, or proof of insurance. The officer might ask you to step out of the car and perform physical tests. You are not obligated to perform these tests and there isn’t a penalty for refusing to do so. Politely decline this request. However, if the situation arises you are required to take a chemical test. Contact a DUI lawyer. In the event that you are arrested be sure to exercise your right to a Grand Rapids DUI attorney before you answer any further questions.

Contact Us if You've Been Charged.

Do not delay in hiring our firm as soon as possible after you have been charged with a DUI. Contact our Grand Rapids DUI lawyer today so that we can get started on your case right away. Your rights are at stake!

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

A Bay City Bankruptcy Attorney Can Help.

When a person files for bankruptcy, there are two main options available to them: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. The latter restructures the existing debt to make it easier to pay back, but Chapter 7 allows you to wipe away a large portion of your debt to get a brand new start. If your debt has started to take over your life, the Bay City bankruptcy attorneys at Gower Law PLC may be able to help you get the help you need.
Contact us at (989) 244-4333 to find out more about your options and see if Chapter 7 bankruptcy can help you!​​​​​

Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Right for Me?

Before filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, it is a good idea to talk to a licensed attorney and find out if it makes financial sense for your situation. We can help determine if filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy will discharge enough of your debt to be worth the effort, and decide if there is property you would not be willing to risk parting with.
Filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy requires that you fulfill a few qualifications first:
  • Last bankruptcy filing: Have you filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy within the last 8 years? If so, you may not be eligible to file again.
  • Monthly income: Your income over the six months prior to filing must be less than the state's median income, or you may not be able to file.
  • Monthly disposable income: If you consistently have disposable income every month, a judge may instead have you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This will help you to restructure your payment plan and, over five years, pay back your debt.
