Practice Areas

Specializing in Criminal Defense

Although there are broad guides and principles to make sure justice is served, not all crimes are created equal. There are many circumstances and factors that influence the outcome of sentencing, which is why you should not take your chances going it alone in court. Regardless if you've been charged with a misdemeanor or felony, I will handle your case with a fresh, objective view and am prepared to take your case head on to ensure all details are considered. Know your rights and stay ahead by calling me before charges are filed. I can assist you with alcohol-related offenses, drug-related offenses, traffic violations, and a broad range of criminal issues.

After Arrest

Assert Your Rights   | Uphold your Fifth Amendment right by politely declining to answer any questions without your attorney present. Remember, anything you say can and will be used against you. Do not consent to a search of your property.

Booking Process   | The booking process could involve a “mug shot” photograph, fingerprinting, appearing before a judge, and setting bail. Then, you will have up to 14 days to request a hearing to prevent license suspension.

Representation   | Not all cases are the same, don’t assume anything till you have spoken with an attorney. I will thoroughly investigate and determine how to reduce, acquit, or completely dismiss your charges.

Alcohol Offenses

On top of thousands of dollars in fines, you could lose your driver’s license, be denied entry into graduate school, and even lose your job. It is so important to understand Michigan’s laws and other legal issues surrounding drunk driving. I can help you understand the law, and navigate the case with you to minimize the impact.

Drug Offenses

The consequences of a criminal conviction can be devastating- which is why you should call me first. Each case is unique and the individual circumstances can influence your sentencing. I will walk you through the case, and help you find the best course of action to secure the best possible outcome.

Misdemeanors

Misdemeanors are a variety of crimes that generally result in loss of privileges or incarceration for one year- or less. Let me evaluate the facts and make your case heard.
