Oakland County Circuit Court and Oakland County Prosecutor
The Oakland County Circuit Court is located at 1200 N. Telegraph Road, Pontiac, MI 48341. The court and its judges are notoriously tough and harsh on those individuals charged with criminal offenses. Often lawyers say that in Oakland County, there is a presumption of guilt and innocence must be proven. In fact, many lawyers just refuse to practice criminal defense in Oakland County and will not take cases in that jurisdiction. In our experience, we have been able to achieve extraordinary results for our clients in Oakland County though tenacious, aggressive, fearless and zealous legal representation.
Similar to the reputation of the Oakland County courts, the Oakland 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 (and sometimes where there is substantial evidence of innocence). We are frequently asked when potential new client’s come to meet with us for the first time, “Why are they going after me like this?” The truth is that it’s not any one particular case, they go after all cases like they are capital offenses. Although at first it may seem like this is a good thing for Oakland County residents, the downside is tragic.
The Court also handles personal protection orders, driver license restoration, many administrative appeals, child support warrants, Motions for Relief from Judgment, hardship appeals, violations of personal protection orders and more.
