Founding Member, Forensic Critic and Adjunct Law Professor Mike Nichols handles cases where the accused citizen is up against an overzealous police officer, an overzealous prosecutor or swimming upstream against the political winds marshaled by mothers against drunk driving (MADD) or some other political cause. He is an attorney who focuses his practice area and therefore has developed skills and qualifications in the area of the defense of drinking or drugged drivers.
He handles the most intense cases, especially when the matter garners media attention. He tried 11 OWI cases in 2012 and obtained not guilty verdicts in more than half of those cases.
In 2012 he also successfully moved to exclude a Michigan State Police blood analysis claiming to have identified 11 nanograms per milliliter of THC in the blood sample of the alleged client. The basis for the motion was the inability of the MSP lab to analyze human blood for the presence of marijuana.
In 2011, he successfully moved to exclude a blood alcohol analysis that claimed his client’s blood alcohol content was .29. The basis for the motion was the lack of any uncertainty declaration with the report issued by the Michigan State Police.
