    Best Attorney in Michigan -- DUI / Criminal Defense The stakes were very high. I was charged with OUI/DUI and refusal to submit to Chemical Tests. Loss of my driving privileges and an alcohol related conviction could put my professional license (don't want to be overly specific) in jeopardy as well as impact my employability. Mike and his team were rock stars. The refusal to submit to chemical tests brings a MANDATORY 12 month suspension of driving privileges. This wouldn't even allow me to drive for work. Mike prevailed in getting this charge dismissed. The DUI comes with 6 points, big fines, and a life-long scar on my driving record along with insurance ramifications. Mike was successful in getting the blood evidence suppressed, which ultimately resulted in the charges being dropped. I never regretted hiring Mike and his team from day 1. They are professionals at each step. He knows the process better than the police, understands how the blood and breath test machines work, where the vulnerabilities are, and what steps the peace officers must take to ensure they meet their burden of proof. Communication was very good throughout the process. He is available by email, phone, text, even cell and the Nichols team works around the clock. Mike Nichols is worth every penny and more. I won't ever need his DUI services again because I have learned a very valuable lesson (despite having all charges dropped completely), but I certainly can throw my full support behind him for others that are facing this difficult situation. Hire Mike and he will give you the best possible outcome given your circumstances. Thanks again Mike!

      About

      In consulting with clients, I seek to fully understand what has brought them to my office, what the client would like to occur, and how I can resolve their legal issue to the client's satisfaction, even if that does not always mean the original solution to a potential problem that the client may have initially had in mind. I work very hard to understand my client's state of mind and my client's ultimate goals. In keeping an open line of communication with my clients, I always attempt to gauge a client's level of satisfaction in my work and what I can possibly do to make my client even more satisfied. I work very hard for all of my clients, and in the end, I think that is what makes my work stand out from others in my field.

      The Toivonen Law Office is a general practice law firm with an emphasis on criminal defense. We handle felonies with maximum sentences of up to 20 years, and most of the time, our clients walk out the door without spending any time or just a few days in jail. How do we have this success? To put it simply, we know the law. Whether you have been charged with larceny, domestic violence, home invasion, or another felony, we will do our best for you. We know that the best thing for you is to get the charges dismissed. We get felony charges dismissed on a regular basis. We insist on the preliminary examination in most cases so that we can destroy the prosecution's case before they even get started. When we succeed in completely destroying the prosecution's case, it results in the defendant walking out the door a free man. Contact us so that we can protect you from the criminal justice system. While criminal defense is our focus, we also handle personal injury, business planning, and estate planning.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What does an immigration attorney do?

      Immigration lawyers help their clients through all phases of the immigration process. Experts on immigration law, they are legally qualified to represent U.S. citizens, permanent residents or undocumented immigrants. Immigration lawyers also provide assistance to visitors here on student, work or travel visas, and can represent clients who may have an expired visa or who have overstayed their visa.

      You can hire an immigration lawyer to assist you with petitioning for renewing a permanent resident or green card, navigating the naturalization process, submitting an employee-based petition for a work visa, filing a petition for a family member, or representing you or a loved one who is facing detention or deportation, as well as replacing, extending or changing a current visa, green card or work permit. The immigration process is highly complex, with multiple hearings, paperwork and requirements. Hiring a legal expert to represent you can help you make your best effort in the process. When researching immigration lawyers, it is very important to verify their qualifications and find a reputable attorney. Read reviews and verify that the immigration lawyer is licensed by your state before paying any fees.

      What is a personal injury lawyer?

      A personal injury lawyer fights on your behalf if you’ve been injured physically, psychologically, economically or in reputation. This injury may be the result of neglect or malicious intent of another person, or it could be at the hands of a business, government or other entity. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law, which is the law of civil wrongs like car accidents, company wrongdoing, unlawful imprisonment and more.

      To become qualified to be a personal injury lawyer in the United States, a person must earn a bachelor’s degree, followed by a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from a law school. Most states then require the person to pass the bar exam to become licensed to practice law. Unlike many attorneys who require a retainer, personal injury lawyers often work on contingency fees. This means that in lieu of payment upfront, they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement in case of a win.

      What should you look for in a personal injury lawyer?

      A personal injury lawyer will advocate for your legal rights if you’ve been hurt in an accident at work or in daily life, have suffered from medical malpractice, or are struggling to have your insurance carrier cover your needs. It may be helpful to talk with two or three lawyers before selecting one. When looking for a personal injury lawyer, research their reviews and make sure former clients have had good experiences with them. Next, make sure the personal injury lawyer has experience and proven success winning cases similar to yours. Confirm that the lawyer is licensed to provide services in your state. When you find a qualified personal injury lawyer with whom you want to work, freely discuss payment and fees before any work begins. Most lawyers offer a free consultation to learn what your case is about and explain their rates. Personal injury attorneys typically receive a percentage of your settlement (called a contingency fee), so they are paid after the trial or case is complete. Keep in mind that some attorneys have fees that you must pay even if you don’t win your trial. It’s important to understand these details before work begins so you don’t have any unhappy surprises later. Lastly, it’s wise to choose a personal injury lawyer that you have confidence in and with whom you can communicate openly and honestly.

      How do you find a good immigration lawyer?

      Research is key to finding a good immigration lawyer. The immigration process can be overwhelming and complex, so a trustworthy advocate is critical. When you have identified several eligible candidates, verify their immigration law license to protect yourself and your finances. Once you have a set of licensed immigration lawyers in mind, choose one based on these considerations:

      • Mutual respect: You want an immigration lawyer who treats you and your family with kindness and consideration. You’ll do the same for them.
      • Availability: Before hiring, note if they have responded promptly to your emails and calls. You don’t want to hire someone you have to chase around.
      • Proven success: Read former client reviews and research their success rate with cases similar to yours.
      • Transparent rates: Ask directly about what their rates are, how they bill, and what they estimate your legal fees will be. Ask if they will sign a fee agreement, and get receipts for all fees paid.
      • Verify who will handle your case: Sometimes junior lawyers work on firm cases. This is okay, as long as you have discussed it and are comfortable with it. When junior lawyers or paralegals are working on your case, ask if the hourly rate is lower.
      • Be wary of anyone who promises you specific results: No case is certain, and the immigration lawyer should be honest about what you can expect.

      How much does an immigration lawyer cost?

      Immigration lawyers are experts in the nuances of the highly complex United States immigration system. They help clients of all backgrounds petition for immigration status and become U.S. citizens, and can represent clients who are facing deportation or detention. Nationally, the cost people pay for immigration lawyers averages $500-$1,010. The services you need will have a huge effect on your costs. For routines cases, such as applying for a travel visa, an immigration lawyer may be able to confidently quote you a set price, while more open-ended cases may be billed at an hourly rate of $200-$500, or more, depending on the reputation and experience of the firm and lawyer. Before hiring an immigration lawyer, ask what their plan for your case is and what expected costs may be. Many immigration lawyers work from retainers, and request a set amount of money upfront from which to work. For example, a lawyer who charges $300 per hour may estimate $4,000 for a standard family-based immigration case, the common process in which a U.S. citizen petitions for permanent residency for their spouse, fiancee or family members.
