It is illegal in Michigan for court clerks or employees to give you legal advice. In addition, do not expect the police or prosecutor to help you if you are the subject of a criminal investigation, are charged with a crime, or have a warrant for your arrest. Talking to the police without first consulting with your own lawyer is a huge mistake that can lead to devastating results. Hire your own personal attorney if you are charged with any crime or even if you receive a minor traffic violation. Do not just “plead guilty” if you are charged with a crime and always fight every traffic ticket in the 48th District Court and in every other jurisdiction. Most criminal matters can be handled efficiently particularly for first time offenders. There are many ways to get a criminal case under control including:
- Reduce drunk driving charges and keep your license.
- Avoid points for traffic tickets.

- Request a delayed sentence or deferral with a dismissal after a period of probation.
