Criminal Defense

I practice criminal defense in Michigan on a daily basis.  I aggressively defend clients at all stages of a case from arraignment, pre-trial conference, trial, and through sentencing in the Washtenaw County courts every week.  I also practice in Livingston, Jackson, and Wayne Counties.  Call me for a free consultation.


Misdemeanors

Misdemeanors in Michigan are crimes that are punishable by less than a year in jail.  This does not mean that you will go to jail, but instead the maximum possible sentence.


Felonies

Felonies in Michigan are crimes that are punishable by more than a year in prison.  The outcome may result in no jail time to a lifetime maximum depending on the charges.  There are  additional steps to a felony case such as a probable cause conference and a preliminary examination. Here is an explanation for the early stages of a felony case in Michigan.
