Oakland County Criminal Defense Attorney

Before becoming an award-winning criminal defense attorney and founding the Law Offices of Bradley J. Friedman, I spent years prosecuting cases in Detroit and the surrounding areas. I have spent countless hours on both sides of the courtroom. This experience gives me a unique advantage of allowing me to see my clients’ cases from the perspective of both the prosecution and the defense. 

As a former prosecutor, I understand how the government builds a case. You deserve a lawyer who understands how the government’s investigatory process works and can build a defense strategy to counteract them. If you face a charge, whether minor or serious, look no further than our law firm for an Oakland County criminal defense attorney.

Fighting Misdemeanor and Felonies

My practice is dedicated entirely to criminal defense. Regardless of whether you face misdemeanor or felony charges, we will work to dismiss your charges and protect your rights. I have experience defending clients facing a wide range of charges, including: 

Our firm takes a unique approach to criminal law. Instead of focusing on your charges, I start by addressing the potential consequences. This method allows me to craft a defense strategy designed to achieve your goals.

If you face misdemeanor or felony charges in Oakland County, it is very beneficial to get the help of an attorney as soon as possible. Early intervention enables me to closely examine the events surrounding your arrest to ensure that your rights were not violated. As your trusted criminal defense attorney, I can analyze the prosecution’s case against you and weigh your options in light of the evidence. 

Some cases will have ancillary issues that arise that are highly time-sensitive. For example, if your money or assets were seized by the government during an arrest or investigation, early intervention by a criminal defense attorney is necessary to protect your rights.

The Criminal Process

Whenever you face a charge, it’s helpful to have a basic understanding of the criminal process. Here’s a brief overview:

  1. Pre-Arrest: The police are usually required to obtain a warrant before charging a suspect with a crime.
  2. Arrest: After obtaining a warrant, the police can take the suspect into custody.
  3. Arraignment: A first court appearance where the judge will explain your charges and the consequences of a conviction.
  4. Pre-Trial: The prosecution and defense continue to build their cases, and a plea bargain may be offered.
  5. Trial: If both sides can’t agree to a plea bargain, a judge or jury trial will commence.
  6. Sentencing: If convicted, the penalties you receive will be determined by a pre-sentence report and any prior convictions.
  7. Appeals: You may be able to appeal the court’s decision or your sentence.
