We provides immediate representation in the defense of persons charged with any felony or misdemeanor firearm or weapon crime.

We fight for your rights to avoid a conviction and avoid jail!

A person convicted of any felony will lose many rights afforded to United States citizens as well as all rights to own or possess a firearm. In Michigan, it is a felony for a felon to possess a firearm. In addition, a misdemeanor conviction can result in denial of a concealed pistol license and unfairly label the offender as a dangerous person. We approach every case by getting all the pertinent facts and the complete background of our client. By knowing our client and the facts, we formulate sound legal strategies to seek avoidance of a felony conviction, alternative sentencing which can result in dismissal and first offender programs.
