If you have been arrested and charged with a drunk driving OWI / DUI 71A District Court Lapeer Michigan, you may be seeking important information about the court and its reputation with handling drunk driving offenders.

The court is located at 255 Clay Street in Lapeer, Lapeer County, Michigan. The jurisdiction of the 71A District Court encompasses over forty cities, villages and townships, including Almont, Imlay City, Metamora, Dryden and North Branch to name a few.

The Court is comprised of two judges: Hon. Laura Cheger Barnard and Hon. Byron J. Konschuh. Judge Konschuh was actually appointed to the judgeship of the 40th Circuit Court but, given the court’s current structure, he shares some district court responsibilities with Judge Barnard.


Judge Konschuh formerly served as the Lapeer County Prosecutor for many years before taking the bench. During his tenure as prosecutor he demonstrated a sense of fairness and willingness to look at each drunk driving OWI / DUI 71A District Court Lapeer Michigan case based upon its unique circumstances. My experience with him as judge indicates that he approaches his judicial responsibilities with the same perspective.

Judge Barnard has served on the district court bench for many years. Having represented literally hundreds of clients facing serious alcohol or drug related offenses in the 71A District Court, I have witnessed Judge Barnard consistently be firm but fair in the treatment and sentencing of first and multiple offenders. She has also demonstrated a willingness to grant a favorable ruling on a defense motion based upon well reasoned precedent given the appropriate circumstances.

I am very familiar with the respective judge’s attitudes regarding bond conditions, alcohol and drug testing protocols, sentencing issues and terms of probation.

That kind of knowledge only comes with experience.

When it comes to drunk driving OWI / DUI 71A District Court Lapeer Michigan cases, experience is what matters most. So, if you have a case in that court, I encourage you to send me the specifics online or call me directly at 248-409-0484.
