Drug Crime Charges

Michigan’s policies on illegal drugs are some of the toughest in the country and often lead to police officers overstepping their bounds when it comes to enforcement. Entrapment, coercion, and even outright lies are some of the ways law enforcement takes advantage of Michigan residents alleged to have committed drug offenses. When charging you with a drug crime, they are required to follow strict guidelines. We can help identify where they did not and potentially open a case for dismissal.

Violent Crime Charges

Violent crime can be devastating to all parties involved and the surrounding community. This does not, however, mean that the right party has been charged with a crime. During explosive and chaotic events, it can be hard to determine who was the victim and who was committing the assault. Be it an argument of self-defense or mistaken identity, our firm has successfully beaten thousands of violent crime charges, and we can do the same for you.

Are You Facing

Firearm or Weapon Crime Charges

Weapons charges are often added to existing charges to secure harsher penalties. An assault now becomes assault with a deadly weapon. A robbery is now robbery with a dangerous weapon. If you face a firearm or weapons charge on its own or in conjunction with another charge, you need to do everything possible to have the weapons charge dropped. Not doing so puts you at risk for a significantly more severe sentence.

Are You Facing

White-Collar Crime Charges

White-collar crimes, like mortgage fraud, money laundering, and identity theft, are serious crimes that are often charged at the federal level. Since these crimes often involve large amounts of money, they are prosecuted as felonies and carry hefty fines and incarceration. Many defendants accused of white-collar crimes are not the main perpetrator and have found themselves caught up in a crime they did not commit. Our firm is committed to helping you protect your reputation and keep you out of jail.

Do You Need Help

Defending a Person with Special Needs

Unfortunately, the law does not often treat those with special needs any differently from other defendants, despite the challenges they face. It is critical for those with afflictions like autism, cognitive impairment, or Down syndrome that a defense attorney fully understands their situation to put forward the best possible argument during a criminal defense. We help clients and their caregivers understand the legal process during trying times and leverage every opportunity to keep them safe and out of the criminal system.
