When you are charged with a misdemeanor drunk/drugged driving, it is extremely important you hire an attorney who has a lot of experience in this complex area of the law. Why is this area of drunk/drugged driving so complex? The answer is simple: because the Legislature made it so. If you sat down and read the state laws making drunk driving a crime, you would see that the various drunk driving laws span well over 200 pages. In contrast, the homicide statute is just one page. Furthermore, this does not even include the thousands of Court of Appeals or Supreme Court cases which have interpreted these laws.
Attorney Patrick O’Keefe also specializes in license restoration and expungement (where a person seeks to have a criminal conviction removed from their record). Therefore, it is very important for people to understand that a traffic misdemeanor conviction is something that CANNOT be expunged.
Attorney O’Keefe has successfully filed motions to dismiss DUI charges and has successfully gotten help for people with real substance abuse problems. Mr. O’Keefe has a number of clients who were highly satisfied in his defense of their misdemeanor charges.
