Dan Geherin’s Experience in Juvenile Law

Dan Geherin, owner of the Geherin Law Group in Ann Arbor (“GLG Michigan”), is a former prosecutor and board-certified criminal trial attorney who has been practicing juvenile law for over two decades.   Since starting his career as a juvenile court prosecutor in 1996, he has been defending juveniles (and reassuring their parents) for 20+ years and has helped thousands of juvenile clients in that timeframe.  Unlike many criminal defense attorneys who refuse to handle juvenile cases (primarily because they don’t understand the nuance and procedural differences from adult court), Dan has truly separated himself as an attorney dedicated to helping juveniles navigate their way through a very scary and uncertain process.

Juvenile Defense Common Questions

Often, parents who receive the terrible call often ask Dan Geherin these questions:

  • “Do I even need an attorney for my child?”  
  • “Are there any attorneys who actually specialize in juvenile delinquency defense”?
  • “Is there a way to avoid a public conviction for my child”?

Because the consequence for a juvenile are often so serious (and open to the public), finding a specialized attorney who handles juvenile defense is of paramount importance.  After all, parents take their children to pediatric doctors and dentists, and should consider no differently when it comes to their kids’ freedom, reputation, and academic career.

The Consequences of a Drunk Driving Offense

In Ann Arbor, generally speaking, clients might expect to pay over one thousand dollars in base court fines/costs if convicted of a drunk driving offense.  They might expect to lose their privileges to drive for a short period of time.  And, they might expect to face jail time for subsequent offenses, or in the event of the slightest violation of bond or probationary conditions.  These consequences are real, and they can be severe.  Having a specialized, aggressive and experienced drunk driving attorney in Ann Arbor can often help avoid or severely lessen these consequences.

Drunk Driving Attorney for the Holidays

If the holidays bring the wrong type of present—in the form of an arrest for a drunk driving—please contact GLG immediately.  Waiting until the case opens often results in the loss of important evidence and information, and in some instances, can result in an arrest warrant.  Our firm can talk you through options on how best to protect yourself and better your position once the case opens.  We can ask to preserve evidence so that we have it when we need it.  And, we can monitor the case progress to make sure you are not re-arrested and taken to jail once a case opens at the court.

Know How Michigan Marijuana Legalization Changes DUI/OWI Charges

With the passage of Proposition 1, Marijuana will be legal in the state of Michigan for people 21 years and older. That considerably changes the landscape of DUI and OWI laws for marijuana related offences.

The Three Reasons Why You NEED an Experienced DUI/OWI Attorney:

  1. They must be able to thoroughly and intelligently cross-examine the Drug Recognition Expert and raise doubt over the opinion of impairment or intoxication.
  2. They must have a reliable network of toxicology and recognition experts to rely on to rebut the state’s case. 
  3. They must be able to persuade jurors why a person should not be convicted of a DUI where other factors might have contributed to the alleged impairment.  

A lot is changing in DUI/OWI laws and you need an attorney experienced and qualified to handle your case. Click Here to learn more about Michigan’s new marijuana DUI laws.

Michigan Marijuana DUI/OWI Laws Are Changing

With the recent passage of Proposition 1 legalizing the possession and usage of marijuana for people 21 years and older, the laws governing DUI and OWI related to marijuana are changing.

It used to be that if any THC (the active drug in Marijuana) was found in your system, that was proof enough of intoxication and impairment – regardless of when the drug was actually consumed.

Now specially trained police officers known as Drug Recognition Experts (DRE’s) will evaluate your level of impairment on-site.

If you’re being charged with a marijuana-related offence, you need an attorney who knows DUI/OWI law for alcohol and marijuana offences frontwards and backwards. Click Here to learn more about Michigan’s changing marijuana DUI/OWI laws.
