“How Can a Novi Criminal Defense Lawyer Help Me?”
On top of the allegations you face, you may also have to post bail or other financial demands. My firm represents clients at a flat rate whenever I can. This permits me to give you skilled legal representation while giving you a predictable cost for your defense. Many law offices typically charge large hourly fees for their services. These firms will charge you by the hour for any action they take, whether you talk to your attorney or not. I take a different approach, endeavoring to work with you one-on-one while providing you with cost-effective and attentive representation.
My office must move forward immediately on your case to increase the opportunity of achieving a favorable outcome. The actions that I take initially in a case can greatly impact the outcome. I may be able to get your charges dismissed after a thorough, and review of the facts surrounding your case. Some cases must go to trial and be tried before a judge or jury. I am committing taking every possible action that could produce a verdict of "not guilty" for my clients.
What Are the Penalties for Misdemeanor & Felony Convictions in Michigan?
The penalties for conviction on misdemeanor or felony charges are harsh. You face the loss of your driving privileges, a permanent criminal record, steep fines, community service, probation and time served in either jail or prison. You cannot trust your future to an attorney who is inexperienced or not fully committed to your case. Police and prosecutors believe that you are guilty, and they will work hard to get you convicted. My actions are geared to present an equally powerful, compelling, and persuasive case for your defense.
The process of prosecution in misdemeanor and felony cases varies. If you are charged with a misdemeanor, the first hearing is at your arraignment, where you will be formally charged. You will have the choice of entering a plea of guilty, not guilty, or in some cases "no contest" to the criminal accusations. The judge can sentence you at this hearing if you plead guilty or no contest or will decide to sentence you at a later date. The judge may also choose to set bail at your arraignment. If bail is an issue, I take immediate action to get your case released on your recognizance. I can also try to reduce the amount of bail necessary to get you released.
What Is the Criminal Justice Process?
When you plead not guilty, a pre-trial conference will be set by the judge in your case. The purpose of a pre-trial conference is to discuss whether a plea bargain can be worked out. Prosecutors frequently prefer this over a trial, as it can save them time and expense. A prosecutor could attempt to get you to agree that a plea bargain offer is best for you, but this may not be the case. I work to give you the straight facts on the options that will help you the most; a plea bargain or trial. After your pre-trial conference, both sides begin preparations for trial.
