A misdemeanor is a crime that may result in a fine of up to $1,000 or up to one year in county jail. Many judges will consider options for alternative sentencing if it’s your first offense, such as treatment or diversion programs. In some cases, our team of attorneys may be able to get the charges dismissed before the trial.
A felony is a more serious crime that may result in significant fines and jail time in a state or federal prison. If you are convicted of a felony, you may spend years in prison and afterward you may have problems finding a job and supporting your family. An experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney will do everything possible to create a solid defense and obtain a favorable verdict.

If you have been accused of a DUI, you risk the suspension or loss of your driver’s license, as well as fines and possible jail time. The laws in Michigan are very strict when it comes to drunk driving and our attorneys can help you navigate the complex legal processes related to a DUI.
