Ann Arbor Criminal Defense Attorney

If you’ve been charged with a crime in the State of Michigan, your case’s outcome is far too consequential to leave to chance. Having professional legal counsel in your corner can play a pivotal role in the outcome of your case, which makes it in your best interest to reach out to an experienced Ann Arbor criminal defense attorney as soon as you are able to do so. 

Help Yourself

While the case against you is unique to you and the circumstances involved, there are some universally beneficial things you can do to help protect your rights throughout the legal process, including:

  • Let the officer interviewing you know that you’re not going to be answering any questions without legal representation. 
  • Follow through with your decision not to answer the police’s questions without the guidance of your attorney (even the most innocent-seeming statements can come back to haunt your case).
  • Be honest and transparent with your attorney about everything relevant to your case. Your attorney is on your side and cannot help you to the best of his or her ability if you withhold information. 

Criminal charges in Michigan proceed through the state’s court system and are governed by the Michigan Penal Code.  

How Your Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help

Being charged with a crime is exceptionally stressful and can be terrifying. You are in the vulnerable position of needing to defend yourself, but you may have no idea where to turn for the help you need. It’s all too easy to get started explaining your innocence to the police (after all, you know that you’re innocent), but this approach is not going to do you or your case any favors. 

Your dedicated criminal defense attorney can help in all the following primary ways:

  • Arranging for you to turn yourself in (if necessary)
  • Helping to ensure that you don’t incriminate yourself or reveal more than you intend to the police 
  • Carefully assessing the charge against you and helping you understand its total implications – as well as your best options.
  • Ensuring that you understand the court process  
  • Monitoring to ensure that your constitutional rights are upheld
  • Gathering all potential evidence, interviewing potential witnesses, and weaving the information into your strongest defense
  • Negotiating a beneficial plea deal (when appropriate)
  • Skillfully representing you at trial
  • Negotiating a reduced sentence (in the event of a conviction or plea deal) 

Having a criminal defense attorney on your side can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case – and in your future.
