An Experienced Trial Attorney Fighting For You

To learn more about specific criminal charges, click on one of the links below:

  • Sex crimes: While you have a right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty, people tend to believe the victim in sex crime cases. This can only be overcome by an aggressive defense.
  • Rape: If you have been charged with rape, you will need someone to step in between you and the authorities and manage the case for you. You should not attempt to talk to police.
  • Child pornography: Just possessing child pornography — having it on your computer — is enough to put you in jail without the assistance of an aggressive and skilled attorney.
  • Child sexual abuse: Sexual contact with someone under the age of 16 is criminal sexual conduct in Michigan, even if the sex was consensual.
  • Domestic violence: To protect your reputation and your future, domestic violence charges need to be defended aggressively.
  • Meth production/possession: Michigan authorities are cracking down on meth possession and production. As a result, you could be facing a substantial prison sentence if you are convicted.
  • DUI second offense: A second DUI/OWI conviction will result in the loss of your ability to operate a motor vehicle in Michigan.
  • Driver's license restoration: Most people don't realize how important it is to hire an attorney to represent you at a driver's license restoration hearing.
  • Theft: Depending on how much property was stolen, theft charges can range from misdemeanors to felonies. Either way, it is important to put a lawyer behind you to protect your rights.
  • Drug crimes: Being charged with possession or trafficking can impact your future forever. Do not let a drug charge tarnish your record permanently.
