Having a run-in on the wrong side of the law can be the most nerve wracking experience one can face. The Nichols Lawyers know that the first question you likely think of after your arrest is “what’s next?” Being convicted of a crime can change your life forever. Whether you’re charged with OWI, Marijuana Possession, Misconduct in Office, or homicide, having a dedicated criminal defense team can mean all the difference in the outcome you experience. For people who are dependent on their Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) to live, they have no option but to fight the charges against them and avoid a license suspension.
With OWI or Drug Use charges, science matters. The Nichols Lawyers are nationally recognized leaders in challenging the police science and legal tactics being used against you. After years of fighting for scientific fairness, Mike Nichols secured a court decision which changed the face of forensic measurement in Michigan and states around the country by requiring that courts verify the validity of science being used against an accused person.
