A Strong Defense Against Federal Charges Is Crucial To Securing Your Freedom And Protecting Your Future

Facing federal charges in Michigan is always a serious matter with life-changing consequences. Many offenses, if convicted, carry extensive mandatory minimum prison time, fines and other significant penalties.

You can’t risk hiring just any attorney. You need an aggressive legal advocate in your corner– one who knows the federal criminal justice system inside and out; one who also has experience getting real results.

I have handled thousands of federal cases across the state of Michigan. I know the federal court rules, procedures, judges and prosecutors. I have represented clients in federal courts in New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas. I also successfully represented a client on death row in Georgia.
