Despite what many criminal defendants may think, they are not powerless in the criminal justice system. The first step towards empowerment comes when you hire an experienced Rochester Hills criminal defense lawyer to be your guide and advocate. This starts protecting you from violations of your legal rights and begins to give you a strategy to approach your legal issues.
The Law Offices of Bradley J. Friedman helps people who find themselves in the criminal justice system. No matter the crime, we take your constitutional rights seriously and work to advance your best interests throughout the process. We take the time to speak to you and understand what you are facing in your life because the effects of the process can be different for each person. Otherwise, it would be impossible to give you a helpful opinion on what you personally should do in your case.
Regardless of what you have been charged with, you should strongly consider legal counsel immediately.

Even a misdemeanor crime could have serious impacts on you, your family, and your future.
When you have been arrested and charged, you are often faced with the decision about whether to plead guilty or fight the charges. This is often not just a two-dimensional decision. There are multiple branches of the decision tree that you need to consider with your lawyer. Even if you do not face jail time, convictions could have collateral consequences.
In general, you need an effective and committed advocate to defend you. Once you hire them, a criminal justice attorney could:
The criminal justice system is an intimidating place. There are no two ways about it. When you understand what is happening and what could occur next, you are able to think more objectively about your own case. While you are ultimately the one who makes decisions, your choices need to be informed based on the options and impacts. This is the advice that we give you after learning about you and having a conversation. Prosecutors are trained to investigate and obtain convictions, and you need someone to counter the law enforcement system that is lined up against you.
Knowing that you have someone in your corner is the first step towards dealing with your legal issues. Contact The Law Offices of Bradley J. Friedman to schedule your free initial consultation so you can begin to learn more about your legal options and move towards putting your life back together.
