June 11, 2012: OWI-1st (with .21 Blood Test Result) Reduced to Reckless Driving

We know how mistakes in our youth can significantly effect our lives as adults. Knowing this, fixing those youthful mistakes so they don't completely disrupt your future is of critical importance. That's why KLW contacted our office. KLW is a young woman with a very promising future who found herself facing the life-altering prospect of being a convicted drunk driver. On the cusp of graduating college and moving on with her life, a drunk driving conviction would be catastrophic to her future plans. Fortunately, the attorneys at Melowski & Associates are completely dedicated to the notion that one mistake or bad decision shouldn't ruin a person's life. With that in mind, Attorney Sarvan Singh picked apart the prosecutor's case from top to bottom, exposing some serious flaws. After pointing these out to the prosecutor just days before the jury trial, the prosecutor saw the writing on the wall and agreed to amend the OWI to  Reckless Driving, despite KLW's very high blood test result of .21. This fantastic result ensured that KLW would not have to start her young career with the irreversible stain left by a drunk driving conviction. On top of that, she never lost her license; avoided lengthy and costly alcohol counseling; and did not have to install an ignition interlock device in her car. KLW's family could not be happier that she can put all of this behind her and start life anew.
