Representation Against State Criminal Charges
As a former prosecutor and an attorney with more than a quarter-century of criminal law experience, John Freeman has participated in a wide array of criminal cases involving state felony and misdemeanor charges. He knows Michigan law inside and out, and our firm works tirelessly to utilize that knowledge to your advantage in defending you against state criminal charges.
Tenacious Defense In Federal Crimes Cases
The stakes are typically higher in federal court than state court, and the opponent is more formidable. The federal government has seemingly endless resources when it comes to investigating crimes and securing convictions. Because procedures and protocols are also different, you need an attorney who is not just admitted to practice in federal court, but who already has considerable experience in this arena. If you’re facing serious federal criminal charges, attorney John Freeman is the natural choice for representation.
Have You Been Charged With A Felony?
The sentencing guidelines for most felonies are very strict, including years in jail or prison and tens of thousands of dollars in fines. If you were charged with a felony sex offense, a drug crime, a white collar financial offense, or a crime of violence, you can’t afford to leave your fate to chance or trust your case to a novice attorney. Instead, contact us to learn how we can help you fight your felony charges.
Don’t Underestimate The Consequences Of A Misdemeanor Charge
Many people assume that misdemeanor means “no big deal.” Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Whether you were charged with shoplifting, minor drug offenses, reckless driving or certain drunk driving offenses, a misdemeanor conviction can have serious consequences. In addition to whatever criminal sentence is imposed, you also have to live with a criminal conviction on your record. This can make it difficult to find a job, get approved for housing or loans, or to pursue higher education.
Don’t plead guilty before you assess your options with an experienced attorney.
