Michigan Misdemeanor Attorney
Lawyers Dedicated to the Passionate, Zealous, and Tireless Fight to Defend Clients Charged with Misdemeanor and Felony Offenses
If you have been arrested and charged with a misdemeanor in Southeastern Michigan or tri-county area, you will face hard-hitting prosecutors and strict judges. If you’re under investigation by the police, but not yet charged, it is crucial to retain an attorney with experience preventing criminal charges before they are issued. It is possible to stop a warrant from being issued or get the police to permit you to self-surrender, as opposed to arresting you on a warrant. Judges and prosecutors do not go easy on misdemeanors, and they do take these charges seriously. 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.
Reasonable and Fair Legal Fees
At LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., we understand that money is valuable, and anything you spend on legal fees is less that you can save and use for your family. By the same token, we also understand that having expert legal representation and doing what is necessary to help you get the best possible defense is an invaluable investment. If you trust us with the responsibility to protect you and your family, we will do everything possible to achieve the best possible outcome in your case. Where many lawyers charge fees that reflect a “quantity over quality” business strategy, our focus is on providing the highest possible level of service and results.
We Can Help You
We know that you want someone who will represent you as they would their family members. We take our cases personally and serve our clients with the care and dedication you want and deserve. We will fearlessly, faithfully, and vigorously fight to protect your rights and defend your freedom.
The Defense Team with LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., has decades of experience successfully defending thousands of clients charged with misdemeanor offenses in Michigan. Many lawyers fail to treat misdemeanors with serious attention and concern. A lawyer representing you must dedicate the same time, attention, and focus on your defense as he or she would on a felony matter. Any criminal conviction can be life-altering in a negative way, and no stone should be left unturned in the fight to prevent a conviction and jail time.
A Strong Offense is the Best Defense
At LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., our team works as hard as possible to ensure the protection of our client’s rights 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 defense lawyers, and we begin immediately to work on your behalf. We have as our highest goal achieving a dismissal of all charges if possible.
Many people ask us why they need to hire trial lawyers 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 is going to 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 Michigan criminal trial attorney, the prosecutor is far more likely to agree to a highly favorable resolution, maybe even a dismissal of all charges.
