Our attorneys constantly review the new cases decided by the Court of Appeals, Michigan Supreme Court and United States Supreme Court in order to stay current with the new trends in the criminal law. That is the advantage that our firm has over law firms that do not exclusively represent criminal defendants. We take the time to keep current on the new decisions and changes in the laws because we only need to focus on criminal law as opposed to knowing a little about divorce, a little about personal injury, etc. Our philosophy is to know as much about criminal law as possible.Read less
Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
Here are a few to get you started:
- How long have you been in practice?
- How many cases like mine have you handled?
- How often do you settle cases out of court?
- What are your fees and costs?
- What are the next steps?
