Hiring homegrown Macomb County criminal and DUI specialist that are up to date on local policies and familiar with the local courts, judges and prosecutors can make a difference between winning and losing.

Let us protect your constitutional rights if you are charged or the suspect of any crime. Criminal defense planning and strategies begin the moment that you call our firm, not months later. Don’t be lulled into thinking that the court system will swallow you whole and that your charge can’t be reduced to a misdemeanor or dismissed under a special provision of law. Steer clear of any lawyer that submits to a police polygraph, immediately consents to a police interview without debriefing or tells you that your probable cause conference and preliminary examination are unimportant proceedings.

Extensive Felony Practice in Every Macomb County Courtroom

Crimes that carry up to 1 year in jail are classified a misdemeanor. If a crime carries more than 1 year – up to life in prison, it is classified as a felony. The Michigan Penal Code labels various offenses as “high court misdemeanors”. The penalty for a high court misdemeanor is 2 years in prison. Habitual offender status is applied to individuals with a prior felony record that pick up new felony charges. Habitual offender status can raise the maximum penalty up to life in prison even though the underlying offense carries far less.

We are frequent practitioners in all Macomb County Courts including: 37th District (Warren), 38th District (Eastpointe), 39th District (Roseville), 40th District (St. Clair Shores), 41A Districts (located in Shelby township and Sterling Heights), 41B District (Clinton Township), 42-1 District (Romeo/Washington Township) and 42-2 District (New Baltimore/Chesterfield Township).

We Win Felony Cases at Every Stage

Criminal procedure begins with an investigation, arrest or warrant and ends at the trial stage. The criminal appeal process kicks in after the trial process is concluded. We don’t wait until the day of trial to come up with a plan when there is an opportunity to gain an advantage or resolve a felony in the early stages of a case. Many misdemeanor and felony crimes are suited for resolution without trial before charges are filed or within a reasonable time after the case is in the court system. Unfortunately, unless you find a lawyer that will put in the hard work and knows the local criminal justice system, you may never know that your case could have been resolved with a dismissal or substantial reduction to a misdemeanor. ABDO LAW has a reputation for getting extraordinary results. Below are the outcomes of some of our recent Macomb County felony cases:

PLAN A: Avoid a Felony Conviction, Avoid Jail!

A criminal record of any kind can have devastating consequences. Both felony and misdemeanor convictions appear on a public record maintained by the Michigan State Police. This means that potential employers and the general public have access to this information. A felony conviction is a life changing event with numerous negative ramifications. For example, it is illegal for a person convicted of a felony to own or possess a fireman under both State and Federal laws.

If you are charged with a felony, consult with our skilled criminal defense lawyers to avoid a felony conviction at all costs. We have a winning record of getting more than 90% of felonies dismissed. If you do not have a felony record or are a youthful offender, your chances of getting a dismissal are even greater by following our proven methods. If you have a prior record, there is still a good chance that a felony conviction and jail can be avoided. If you have a prior criminal record, contact ABDO LAW for a free consultation to see if you are eligible for expungement. Multiple felonies, misdemeanors and one drunk driving are now eligible for expungement pursuant to Michigan's Clean Slate laws.

Homegrown Macomb County Lawyers Will Get Your Life Back on Track

Just because a person is charged with a felony does not mean that he or she will wind up with a felony record or that jail will be imposed. Also, don’t expect that the case to play out like a crime show on prime-time television. In fact, statistically, more than 90% of all criminal cases in the United States are resolved by way of a plea bargain without trial. Make it your first priority to get a lawyer at the first sign of a legal entanglement to avoid making irreversible mistakes.

THINK AGAIN if you believe that talking to the police, taking a polygraph or getting a lawyer that is not familiar with local practices is the answer. We will stand by your side if you need a criminal specialist in the 41-A District Court (Shelby Division), 41-A District Court (Sterling Heights Division) 41-B District Court (Clinton Township), 42-2 District (New Baltimore) or anywhere else in Macomb County.

ABDO LAW has the experience and ability to provide you or your loved ones with quality legal representation for any criminal matter.
