DUI Cases in Warren and Centerline – the 37th District Court

In this 7th of my 9-part series about DUI Cases in local, Macomb County District Courts, we’ll turn our attention to the County’s largest District Court, the 37th District Court in Warren. We’ll also include a look at the 37th District Court’s “outpost” in the City of Centerline. Because the same Judges as the Warren Court staffs it, the Centerline Court is basically the same thing in a smaller, different building.

Any discussion of the Warren Court must begin by noting how busy it is. While every other Court in Macomb County has a parking lot, the Warren Court has a parking structure.

In other words, there are Courts I can deal with that are efficient and pleasant and prompt, but aren’t so easy on the Client. That’s great for me, but I’m paid to take care of the Client, so it’s how easy or tough things are for them that is the measure of my ratings.

Anyone facing a DUI, whether in Warren, Centerline, or anywhere else, should scroll through the Drunk Driving section of my Blog, past the Local Court information, and read the articles that are relevant to them.

Let’s take a look at the 4 Judges of the 37th District Court:

Judge Dawn Gruenberg is an engaging, friendly and kind personality unlike any other on the Bench. She often displays a vivid sense of humor from the Bench, and the best part about that is that’s its no act. She’s genuinely upbeat because she’s genuinely nice.

But there’s a lot more to her than just being a nice lady. She started the 37th District Court’s “
