Different Types of Lawyers
The law impacts our lives in numerous ways, so there are numerous types of lawyers. Lawyers may be needed in good times (like when you are buying a house) and often in terrible times (like when a divorce is necessary). Some attorneys practice in all areas of the law (general practice lawyers), while others choose to specialize (experts).
Because of our reputation as being among the top Michigan Criminal Defense Attorneys in the State of Michigan, we field calls from friends and family of prior clients and many others seeking our referral to a quality lawyer in another field of law.
Over the years, we have had the opportunity to work with some of the best lawyers in Michigan in a variety of different fields. We’ve gotten to know which Michigan lawyers are the ones to avoid and which ones are reliable, honest and effective. Because we help find attorneys for those in need, we take referrals very personally and recognize that the lawyer we may recommend will ultimately reflect upon LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. That means we only refer those lawyers with a track record of success and who take very good care of their clients.
If you are in need of a quality attorney referral in any area of practice, please call us and ask for Loren M. Dickstein or Randy M. Lewis at (248) 263-6800 or fill out a Request for Assistance Form and we will promptly contact you. We will find a way to help you!
