The Macomb County Circuit Court
The Macomb County Circuit Court is located at 40 N. Main St., Mt Clemens, MI 48043. Macomb circuit court judges are notoriously tough and harsh with individuals charged with criminal offenses; however, most of them will take the time to listen and consider arguments made by skilled, respected lawyers. Some lawyers say there is a presumption of guilt in Macomb County, and innocence must be proven. Many lawyers refuse to practice criminal defense in Macomb County and will not take cases in that jurisdiction. In our experience, we have been able to achieve extraordinary results for our clients through tenacious, aggressive, fearless, and zealous legal representation.

Polices and Practice of the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office
Similar to the reputation of the Macomb County courts, the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office is known for being almost militant in its prosecution of cases regardless of whether there is substantial evidence of a person’s guilt. Potential new clients frequently ask, “Why are they going after me like this?” The truth is that the prosecutors do not “go after” anyone, in particular; Macomb Prosecutors zealously go after all cases. Although, at first, it may seem like this is a good thing for Macomb County residents, the downside is tragic. Innocent people sometimes wrongfully charged or overcharged and the Macomb County Prosecutor is very reluctant to consider any possibility that a charge may be incorrect, a mistake, or inappropriate. An attorney must be tough, knowledgable, respected, and tenacious to persuade the prosecutor to consider an extraordinary plea bargain or sentence agreement in Macomb County.
“We will do everything possible to help protect you, your family, and your future.”
