Informed Decision-Making for

frequently asked questions

  • What types of cases does your firm handle?
    We can assist with any criminal matter in Kalamazoo and throughout the state of Michigan, including OWIs, traffic violations, theft crimes, and related offenses. Our team is prepared to handle cases that are mostly charged as felonies, such as drug offenses, sex crimes, violent offenses, and weapons charges.
  • Will I go to jail if convicted of a crime in Michigan?
    Not always, if you mount a solid defense to get a dismissal of the charges or acquittal at trial. Plus, keep in mind the lower level crimes may not lead to jail time at all if you are a first-time offender. Still, you will have a conviction on your record.
  • What factors affect the penalties of a charge in Kalamazoo?
    The starting point is felony versus misdemeanor, and felonies carry more serious punishment. Your criminal history, if any, may also increase the penalties. Plus, some underlying circumstances matter, such as where the offense occurred and the identity of the victim.
  • Do I have any defenses to the charges?
    There are defenses to every crime in Michigan, but the key is identifying those that suit the facts of your case. It is always a solid defense to expose weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case, because the burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt is a heavy one.
  • Are there other ways to resolve a criminal case in Kalamazoo?
    Yes, many criminal cases are resolved by agreement. A plea bargain is a way to avoid jail time if you can negotiate with the prosecutor. Note that you will have to plead guilty in exchange for lenient treatment.
  • Why do I need help from an attorney?
    The government has a lawyer, so you should also have a Kalamazoo criminal defense attorney on your side. Fighting criminal charges takes skill and knowledge, and the consequences of not having a solid defense are devastating.
