Criminal Law

Whether you have been victimized as a result of a criminal activity, or find yourself on the other side of the law, having been accused, arrested or charged with violating a penal code, or simply have been an unwilling participant in criminal activity, we at Downriver Lawyer can provide you with a solution.  

 For a majority of individuals who have suffered an arrest or a run-in with the law, they feel that there is nothing that they can do.  This is not the mentality of our team.  After speaking with one of our experienced lawyers, you will walk away with a sense of surety that we can provide a defense against any charges or potential charges that you may be facing.

 Whether you are being accused or charged with retail theft, burglary, a hit and run, DUI, joy-riding, sex crimes or sexual abuse, facing misdemeanor or felony charges, domestic violence, assault and battery, battery causing great bodily injury, a weapons offense, or any crimes involving controlled substances, rest assured that our years of experience will provide you with the best defense that our lawyers can provide in Michigan.  Such crimes are not to be taken lightly and the repercussions can be not only quite costly, but life altering, and you don’t want to risk not having the most experienced attorney on your side.

 The most common type of criminal violation our clients find themselves involved in, includes criminal traffic violations such as Driving Under the Influence (DUI).  Did you know that if you have been arrested for a DUI, and were administered a faulty breathalyzer test or if the correct procedures were not undertaken, that you can fight these charges?  Did you also know that breathalyzers are not always precise measuring devices if not monitored accurately?  This is one example of the thorough investigations that our lawyers undertake to determine whether you have been arrested or charged appropriately.

 On a less serious note, you may have found yourself of a simple traffic violation.  These type of violations are considered civil offenses.  Our firm provides legal services litigating civil offenses such as: Insurance violations, Driving License violations, Equipment violations, or even Registration violations.  While it may appear easy to simply pay the fine or citation and walk away from the situation, such violations may affect you in the future.  That is why it is important to speak to one of our attorneys to determine the short-term and long-term repercussions such offenses carry. We will be able to provide you with a simple solution and even dismiss the charges against you.  

 If you find yourself in a situation in which you believe that you have been wrongly convicted of a criminal charge, we can help you overturn your case on appeal.  A second opinion on your criminal conviction is a must.  Even a current conviction can be challenged on appeal; this is one of your legal rights, and perhaps the most important one.   Unfortunately in the current justice system, too many errors are made, and oftentimes, individuals are wrongly convicted of crimes they have not committed.  Let one of our attorneys review your criminal case in order to provide you with a solution on appeal.

 No matter how serious the charges, our attorneys will be able to provide you with an alternative and a defense.  We work with you and dedicate the personal attention you deserve.  We recognize that not all fact-patterns are the same, and that is why we give each client the one-on-one attention that is needed.  Working alongside our clients has resulted in our extraordinary success rate and has allowed us to become the most trusted attorneys in Michigan, whether we are tackling the lowest to the highest level of criminal cases.  Let our lawyers help you fight for your rights and gain your freedom back.  Don’t settle for less; call to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys today.
