About Michael J Nichols

I have practiced law for nearly 20 years and in my 19th year I was honored with the Leo A. Farhat Award. The award is conferred by the Ingham County Bar Association (this coverage area is predominately Lansing and East Lansing). The ICBA grants the award to the lawyer who is voted as the outstanding lawyer of the year. It is an incredibly humbling and prestigious honor. I have tried hundreds of cases to a jury. I have also achieved dismissals, substantial reductions in short: results. This is NOT a promise or representation of expected results. I cannot promise results. I can promise a COMMITMENT to results and that is what we live every day at the Nichols Law Firm. I was the attorney who forced the Michigan State Police Lab and the Michigan State Police to develop and report uncertainty with their toxicological measurements (blood and breath) in People v Jabrocki and People v Stanhardt (co-counsel with Gary Springstead, esq). I am the author of the Michigan OWI Manual for lawyers by West Publishing. I have been an adjunct faculty member in OWI Law and Practice and Forensic Evidence at Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School. I graduated from WMU/Cooley in 1999 with 2 semesters on the Dean's List while I worked full-time as a reporter/anchor at WILX-TV and the Michigan Radio Networks as a contributor. I graduated with Honors from Michigan State University in 1993 with a major in Political Science/Pre-Law. I have been on the faculty for the NCDD; have spoken at several seminars. I am a sustaining member and former delegate for Michigan.

New York Times Investigation: Breathalyzers are Unreliable Machines and Should Not be Trusted

07/06/2020

By Kevin Bennett Breathalyzer devices can be found in every police station in the country. Law enforcement use them as indisputable proof of a driver's blood alcohol level, incorporati0ng them into evidence when prosecuting suspected drunk drivers. However, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest breathalyzers are not a reliable tool when it comes to measuring how intoxicated a...
