Our firm is very experienced in dealing with difficult cases in the 48th District.  for example, Jim Amberg is one of the few, if not only, attorney who has won jury trials in front of all three of the judges.  Recently, Jim won a drunk driving trial before Judge D'Agostini, which within criminal defense attorney circles, is thought of as possibly the most unbelievable not guilty verdict, given the facts of the case.

The 48th District Court is presided over by three judges.  Judge Kimberly Small, Judge Marc Barron, and Judge Diane D’Agostini handle all drunk driving, possession of marijuana, domestic violence, and all other misdemeanor cases which take place within the 48th District Court’s jurisdiction.

The 48th District Court is considered by many criminal defense attorneys to be the toughest sentencing court in the State of Michigan.  For instance, if you have Judge Small on a First Offense drunk driving owi dui charge, you are likely going to be sent to jail if you plead guilty, no matter who you are.  As to Judge Barron and Judge D’Agostini, although they also routinely implement jail sentences for misdemeanor cases, they are more likely to give a drinking and driving defendant a chance to be placed on probation for a 1st offense Bloomfield 48th District Court drunk driving dui ouil conviction.
