Q.- Other Than a Law Degree, What Kind of Special Training or Knowledge do You Have That Might Apply in a Legal Situation?

A.- The most important thing that your criminal defense lawyer needs is experience in the county where the charge is being brought. Lenawee County is going to view a felony in a far different manner than Clinton County. Criminal law is not a one-size-fits-all mentality, knowledge of the jurist, the interplay between the District court and the Circuit Court in that particular county, the jury pool, the prosecutor’s office and the probation department are essential to obtaining the best possible outcome for your client.

Q .- How Will You let me Know What’s Happening With my Case?

A.- Any good lawyer should have regular communication with the client. Sometimes this will be an in-person interview, sometimes a phone call, sometimes a text message or an e-mail. In any event, it is crucial that your attorney is in regular contact with the client. We have our team available on a 24/7 basis. We do not take weekends or holidays off because crime never stops and you need a lawyer that will put your interest before their own.

Q .- What is Your Approach or Philosophy to Winning or Representing a Case?

A.- The most important aspect to a winning outcome is knowing your audience. Each case requires a different approach and the lawyer needs to understand how to approach each county. Macomb Count’s view on a CSC will require a different level of diligence than the same charge would in Washtenaw. The playbook knowledge is the first step to success. We also never ask a question that we do not know an answer too. We get results because we know the facts of the case better than our competitors. When your freedom is on the line, there is no stone that can be left unturned.
