Our law firm stands up for the rights of people accused of domestic violence in Mount Pleasant and throughout Central and Northern Michigan. We also serve the unique needs of students at Central Michigan University and represent Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribal members in Tribal Court.
If you are convicted, there will be no notation on your record to explain what happened. This can be difficult to explain to potential employers when they see such a conviction on a person’s record. Even worse, a conviction for a first offense can lead to jail time. Michigan law requires judges to consider any history of domestic violence when making child custody decisions. Even if the alleged victim doesn’t want to press charges, you can still be charged and prosecuted for domestic violence. The stakes for you are high.
We know how to protect you. We will act quickly to gather evidence, take photos, talk to witnesses and put together the details that are needed for a strong legal defense. When necessary, we will hire experts and investigators. After we have gathered all of the information, we will work hard to keep your record clean and to avoid the consequences of you having a domestic violence conviction.
