Your Champion

Aggressive Representation

When I represent clients, I do not start by looking for a plea deal. It is the prosecutor’s job to prove the defendant’s guilt, not my job to simply agree to any deal he presents. I make the strongest arguments I can for my clients, always in an attempt to get them the best results possible.

Meet Your Grand Rapids Criminal Defense Attorney

If you want aggressive representation against your charges in the Grand Rapids area, you want me, attorney James Champion. I offer free initial consultations for my clients throughout western Michigan.

Educating You On Your Rights

I make sure that my criminal defense clients know two of their most important rights.

  • Right to remain silent: I encourage my clients to not say anything to the police until I have met with them and can help them clearly and accurately describe their situation.
  • Right to be presumed innocent: Although prosecutors and police often make clients feel as though they must prove their innocence, that is not how the legal system works.

Building A Solid Case For Your Criminal Defense

Although I am polite and professional, that does not mean that I go looking for a plea bargain or that I simply do what the prosecutor wants. I work cordially with the police and prosecutor, but I am there 100 percent for my client.

I have spent years building my reputation throughout the community as an aggressive litigator. The prosecutors know me and understand that I am willing to take every case to trial. This gives me an advantage in negotiations since I am always willing to litigate to get the best results I can for you.
