Washtenaw County is one of the more affluent counties in Michigan. It is located in southeast Michigan. Its 27 cities, villages, and townships are home to about 354,000 citizens.

Washtenaw County is home to two of Michigan’s largest universities – the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti.
Because of the county’s size and the community’s wealth, the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office is tough on crime and known for its experienced, skilled prosecutors. Many lawyers, many of whom have offices near the court, are known for being weak and ineffective because they manipulate their clients to enter unfavorable plea bargains instead of fighting for the best possible result. The defense attorneys who get the most favorable deals, the most lenient sentences, and the most frequent dismissals are those that are a credible threat to the prosecutor’s case.
