Misdemeanor Defense Lawyers Dedicated to the Passionate, Zealous, and Tireless Fight to Defend Clients Charged with Misdemeanor Offenses
Do You Need a Misdemeanor Defense Attorney?
You will face tough prosecutors if you have been arrested and charged with a misdemeanor in Southeastern Michigan or the tri-county area. If you have not been charged but are being investigated by the police, it is essential to retain an experienced misdemeanor defense attorney as soon as possible. Before charges are issued, an attorney can attempt to stop the charges and stop a warrant from being issued against you. The judges and prosecutors will not go easy on you just because you are charged with a misdemeanor. Even for a misdemeanor charge, you could face the possibility of hefty fines, jail time, probation, and a criminal record. A conviction and criminal record may pose a barrier to employment, education, custody, gun rights, and government benefits. You need a strong, caring advocate on your side to fight for your rights and your future.
A Strong Offense is the Best Defense
Our team works as hard as possible to ensure that our clients’ rights are protected from the start of a case through its conclusion. Being charged with a crime does not mean that you are guilty — or that the state can prove the charges they are bringing against you. We use a team of highly trained, experienced misdemeanor defense attorneys, and we begin immediately to work on your behalf. Our highest goal is to achieve a dismissal of all charges if possible.
Many people ask us why they need to hire a misdemeanor defense attorney even if they do not intend to take their case to trial. The reason is simple – we are a credible threat to the prosecution. When prosecutors face “plea lawyers” or “local lawyers,” they know the case will result in a plea, and there is not a lot of incentive to reach an extraordinary plea bargain. When a defendant appears with a known, successful misdemeanor defense attorney, the prosecutor is far more likely to agree to a highly favorable resolution. And maybe, even a dismissal of all charges.
Reasonable and Fair Legal Fees
We understand that money is valuable, and spending money on legal fees means there is less to use for your family or save for your future. However, we also understand that having expert legal representation and doing what is necessary to obtain the best possible defense is essential to avoiding a conviction, incarceration, loss of reputation, loss of employment, loss of a professional license, and more. If you trust our felony and misdemeanor defense attorneys with the responsibility to protect you and your family, we will do everything possible to achieve an extraordinary resolution in your case.
