Misdemeanor Assualt

Considered the “less serious” type of assaultive crime, being convicted of a misdemeanor in Michigan will subject you to County Jail, rather than State Prison time.  However, if you do get locked-up, the harshest punishment does not come from the Judge – it comes from your fellow citizens in your community.  Hiring the right assault defense attorney in Michigan can be the difference between living in an invisible prison and preserving your good name.  Crimes in this category include Assault, Assault and Battery, Domestic Violence, Aggravated Assault, and Aggravated Domestic Violence (first offense).  Our special focus on defending Michigan assaultive crime charges can help  protect your name, your future, and and your freedom.

Felony Assault

If you are facing felony charges in Michigan, it is “the big time,” as prosecutors like to say.  By nature, every Michigan felony assault charge carries the possibility of actual prison time.  There is NO room for discussion – you need help, whether you feel “guilty” or not.  It is a whole new ballgame, and a felony conviction can send you to prison, permanently cripple your future, and change the entire path your life is on.  Crimes in this category include Felonious Assault (Assault With a Dangerous Weapon), Resisting and Obstructing a Police Officer (R&O, Resisting Arrest, etc.), Assault With Intent to Commit a Felony (many types), and Assault With Intent to Do Great Bodily Harm Less Than Murder.  Any decision you make in your case may have a life-long, irreversible impact - don’t make these decisions without our help!  Hiring the right felony assault attorney in Michigan can be the difference between prison time or remaining free.
