Let us formulate a plan to help you navigate the court system. We can begin planning a defense strategy when you first call our office, not after your case languishes in the court system. There are options in the court system to get criminal matters dismissed by utilizing special Michigan provisions of law. These opportunites are not automatic and can be lost if the case is mismanaged.
Statistically, over 90% of all criminal cases in Michigan are resolved by plea bargaining before trial. It logically follows that there is a 90% chance that your case will be resolved without a trial and that you would want an attorney that knows how to strategically negotiate a favorable outcome to:
- Avoid a felony conviction.
- Avoid a misdemeanor conviction.
- Get multiple charges under control for expungement eligibility.
- Obtain a dismissal before trial because of a technicality.
- Consent Calendar: Obtain a dismissal and no record for juveniles.
- HYTA: Obtain a dismissal and sealed record for youthful offenders
- MCL 333.7411: Obtain a dismiss for first-offense drug possession crimes.
- MCL 769.4a: Obtain a dismissal for first-offense domestic violence.
- MCL 771.1: Obtain a deferral and dismissal of felonies and misdemeanors.

You should hire a lawyer as soon as possible in all of the following circumstances:
- There is an outstanding warrant for your arrest.
- You have been charged with a crime or driving under the influence.
- You have a belief that you are being investigated for any criminal matter.
- The police have contacted you to discuss an investigation.
You have a right to remain silent pursuant to the 5th Amendment to the United States Constitution. Talking to the police before retaining a lawyer can be a huge mistake with irreparable consequences. You need to know that the police are trained interrogators. Interviews are often done on police turf or in situations when a suspect is caught by surprise or off-guard. Interviews are used extensively as a means to corner a suspect and get the upper hand by establishing motives and placing the accused party at the crime scene. The police also utilize pretext phone calls whereby a recorded phone call is made by the alleged victim to an unaware suspect with a goal to get the suspect to give details or confess to a crime.
