Criminal Defense Lawyers for Macomb County Misdemeanors

Macomb Defense Attorney

Our Affordable Macomb County Lawyers Understand Misdemeanors

Even a “small” misdemeanor can have very big consequences. Being convicted of a misdemeanor – or even entering a “plea” – instantly gives you a criminal record. And having a criminal record can affect your current employment and future job opportunities – costing you thousands of dollars in lost wages.

Many people do not realize that a misdemeanor conviction stays on your criminal record permanently – unless you take steps to obtain an “expungement”. And, an expungement can only be obtained after 5 years. Additionally, if you should ever get more than one misdemeanor on your record, those crimes will stay on your record forever – and can never be “expunged” or removed.

So, choosing the right attorney to help you avoid stiff penalties and “protect your record” may be one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

If you or a family member have been arrested or charged, contact us immediately. We can answer all of your questions, review the charges against you and give you a candid assessment of your options and what is likely to happen.  We understand the dynamics of the police, prosecutors and judges – and we can realistically assess your best potential outcome based on a thorough review of the facts of your case.

We thoroughly analyze the evidence against you and develop additional evidence whenever possible to refute the charges. Our experienced criminal defense attorneys are known for their diligence and willingness to leave no stone un-turned in finding evidence to exonerate our clients.

You should never talk to the police or an investigator without a skilled attorney by your side. If a loved one has been arrested and is currently incarcerated, we can arrange to make a jail visit – rapidly and affordably – to find out the exact status of the case, and to ensure that your loved one’s rights are being protected.
