Growing up in West Michigan, David’s formative years were influenced by his parents’ background in education. He attended Arizona State University, where he earned his undergraduate degree in 1997. The next step in David’s education career was Thomas M. Cooley Law School. He earned Dean’s List honors several semesters before graduating in the top one-third of his class.

David’s first position out of law school was assistant prosecutor, the attorney who represents the government in criminal cases. He gained significant knowledge and experience during that time, and never lost a felony case in his role as prosecutor. David has successfully transitioned these skills into criminal defense and representing defendants. Having managed numerous capital felony cases, he is prepared to handle matters from minor misdemeanors to serious charges. David’s approach aims to minimize criminal charges and leverage gains in court, no matter how complex the case. Clients benefit from his honesty, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can a lawyer help with my defense in Cass County?
    The government is represented by a prosecutor whose job it is to convict and subject you to penalties. A criminal defense attorney will employ every possible tactic to prevent such an outcome. Your lawyer will expose weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and present all possible defenses on your behalf.
  • What are the stages of a criminal case in Cass County?
    An arrest or indictment starts the criminal process, followed by an arraignment where you will enter a plea in court and arrange a bond for pretrial release. There may be multiple court appearances and hearings, and your case will eventually be set for trial.
  • Are there any defenses to criminal charges?
    Every case is different, but you may have defenses based upon lack of evidence, self-defense, lack of intent, and many others. There are also defenses related to police misconduct and violations of your civil rights, including protections under the 5th Amendment.
  • What does a judge review when sentencing in Cass County?
    The primary focus is whether the conviction is for a felony or misdemeanor, but your criminal record is also a factor. The court may also review aggravating circumstances that enhance the penalties, such as having a weapon or committing an offense in a school zone.
  • Could there be additional implications for a conviction?
    In addition to jail time, fines, and probation, you may encounter collateral consequences. A conviction becomes part of your criminal history, so it will appear on background checks for employment, loans, and professional licenses.
  • How much does it cost to hire a defense attorney in Cass County?
    Legal fees will vary significantly depending on your case, but most lawyers charge hourly rates plus expenses. Our firm offers a free initial consultation to alleviate some of the financial burdens.
