Michigan Felony Defense Attorney


Felony charges are scary and require an experienced Defense Attorney to advocate on your behalf. A Felony is the most serious classification of criminal offenses in the State of Michigan. With a felony conviction, a defendant can be sentenced to a term of imprisonment. The loss of freedom and harm to one’s reputation are potential consequences of being convicted. Therefore, a Defendant should not confront a felony charge without a competent and dedicated attorney. Our attorneys provide the experience necessary for a defendant to move successfully past the Court System and continue on with their lives.


The potential for a felony charge is initiated by Police or Law Enforcement investigating a possible offense. At that point, the police will submit evidence to the prosecuting attorney who will authorize charges. Lastly, a warrant is issued by a Judge for the arrest of a defendant and a Felony case has begun.
